Glad to hear you had a good appointment! Sorry about the PUPPS, hopefully Zoe will decide to come very soon.
Oh no, sorry to hear about the PUPPS! But at least you know what you are dealing with now.

It is a relief to know that is what it is! C'mon Zoe!!! Give mama some relief!
Hey hey Jackie! Sounds like things are moving forward... sorry about the PUPPS, but at least you know what it is, and the end is in sight! And yay for such a great appt. And for finding your cervix! Woohoo!
I have to say, I like to lay around during labor- especially once things get tough. In both of my labors I spent a lot of time in bed on my side. Don't know if that is because I just didn't have energy to be otherwise positioned or what, but, yeah, I was in bed a lot. I also spent a lot of time on my hands and knees in my first labor. With this second one, I did a lot more squatting, and ended up delivering standing up, but it was because I reached a point in the labor where I was like, "This is taking too long. I have to put in more effort!" And from there on out I decided to stay upright- which also included walking around *some*. I went to the bathroom when Z was already crowing. I don't know why. But I walked back from the bathroom no more than 5 minutes before he was born. Silly. But it worked. I'm sure you will find what works for you as well!
How you feeling today? Did you get any sleep last night?

I did sleep last night, but I woke up a lot. Already feel like taking a nap and it's only 9:30am!
Haha, me too and I can't even claim a good excuse
Rest up and take it as easy as you can, even if you can't actually sleep during the day. I think you're going to be needing lots of energy pretty darn soon!
Ugh, PUPPS! At least you now know what it is, AND that it will go away once she's born (sweet relief in sight!)
Now she just needs to get herself moving so you can get some relief! C'mon, Zoe - Mama needs a non-itchy belly!
Sorry about the PUPPS! Ugh, but like others have said, at least you now know what it is. Glad you got some sleep last night too even if it was the kind where you wake up over and over. I have also been waking up like every single hour either to pee, or to try and reposition my big belly, etc.
Just checking in to see if it is baby day. I'll be sad to miss it because I of not checking in enough
Bummer that sleep is getting so hard. Totally unfair that it's like that at the end of pregnancy when all you want is some good sleep.
