Well. There is no lower point in life than being told you are so full of poop that your poop is pushing on your vagina, which is partially blocked and doctor can't even check your cervix. I assure you that is as low as it gets.
Baby hid from the Doppler and we couldn't get a heartbeat at all. So I got an ultrasound!!!!
Firsy, definitely only one in there. Not having an early u/s this time, I was slightly freaked just because I never knew for sure.
baby is curled up in a tight ball by my left hip, way down low. That's why we couldn't find the HB. Stinker was hiding!!!!
and we got a very clear shot between the legs and as far as doctor and I can tell, it's clearly a girl!
No pics since it was just the portable machine. She (!!!) looked perfect though.
Apparently if you are constipated enough, the wall of your vaguna can be compressed by how much is pushing behind it. Lovely thought, right???? Ugh. Lots of enemas and magnesium citrate in my future. Ugh.
Wow! Yep, I definitely would have been embarrassed, but doctors have definitely seen it all, so I'm sure it didn't faze them one bit. That's great that you got an ultrasound. Congrats on your baby girl!! I have a feeling she will be much more laid back then your first dd is. My sister and I are completely different. ALso, of my 4 girls, my oldest is the only one that is... well a constant stream of never ending energy and the constant need for stimulation.
That is a cool silver lining!! COngrats!
So did they help you with the constipation? Mine was getting better when my doctor said I could up the colace to 3 times a day and I eat at least 3 fiber one bars + fruits all day long. (Hence the horrible gas, lol!)
I hope you get some relief soon. That is so miserable!
I have to give myself Fleet Enemas until the worst if it clears up. I started last night and it was probably the worst hour of my life. I recall at one point begging for sweet, sweet death. I've been told by friends who have done it that the second day is a lot better. I sure hope so.
