28 week appt

Had my 28 week yesterday. For the first time the weight gain is bothering me a little. I've gained almost 30 lbs already, 7 lbs in the last month, 11 the month before (oops), so I know I will gain at least 40. It motivated me to try and get out for a walk every day though. Just trying not to worry about it. But I am almost the same weight as DH now! I remember feeling the same way when I got close to DH's weight last time, but it was much further along in the pregnancy and I gave birth when I was 1 lb away from weighing the same as DH Smile This time I'm going to surpass him.

The MW did a cervix check because I've been having painful BH contrax pretty much every day the past few weeks. Being in the car makes it worse. I was in the car with just my dad last week and had 3 painful ones in a row, 3 minutes apart. I was starting to get nervous, but it stopped. Anyway, cervix is still closed and long, but she said she could feel the baby's head through my cervix? I guess nothing to worry about for now, but I guess we're just going to keep an eye on it.

Otherwise all is looking good Dirol

Glad everything looked good Biggrin

I was having some painful ones yesterday. 3 yesterday and 1 the day before. They even hurt into my back.....it concerned me a little bit, but they stopped. I haven't had any since then. So I'm assuming everything's fine. Glad that yours aren't doing anything. She could feel the babys head through the cervix?? Weird.....I figured you'd have to be dialated a bit to feel that.

Glad to hear all is well Smile I have also been having painful BH. They are driving me nuts!! I got freaked out about them a few weeks ago and my Dr. had me come in for an NST which picked them up every 7 min and then sent me for an US to measure my cervix length which was better than average, so my OB just said my uterus is probably just extra irratible, blah! I never had BH's like this with my other 2 weird.....I guess we can all be uncomfy together Smile

I know, weird right? She said it didn't feel like it was pushing down on the cervix, just resting on top of it. But I was thinking doesn't that mean the baby is awfully low in my pelvis for 28 weeks?? But she wasn't worried enough to do anything more, so I guess it's OK. She said if the BH's get regular or don't stop, to call. But for now everything seems fine.

I had my 28 week appointment yesterday and everything is good. When I was getting in the car on the way there I accidentally slammed the car door on my belly! Like, hard. It pushed me into the car and I started crying, freaking out. I told her about it right away and she scheduled an U/S. Baby boy looked great and is head down. My cervix is still really short but tech said my cerclage was holding nicely and placed well.

She's taking my cerclage out at 36 weeks (first week of June) and I will be off all meds and bed rest restrictions. Hallelujah!! I know what me and DH will be doing that night! :lovebed:
