Doc. Appt update (follow up from my ER/L&D visit last week)

Things look good. She said my cervix looks good and closed. Discharge looks normal, though she is running a culture just to be sure that theres no bacteria or yeast... just from my symptoms. Shes still not too concerened about the contractions I have been having since they arent changing anything, and I am not having more than 6 in an hour. I told her that I am having more pain with walking (in my pelvis, legs, etc) and she said that thats just part of having more kids... things are bound to get more uncomfortable faster. Same with the vag. pain and pressure. I am also starting to get some major sharp pains, but guessing its just stretching, and maybe contrax related. She checked and wee dude's head is right down on my pelvic bone, and his butt is up by my ribs. His heart rate was in the 140's 150's and he was wiggling around for her. I see her again in 2 weeks (unless the contractions get worse or something major happens) for my 28 week appt which includes my GD test, and a growth ultrasound/amnio check (the level via ultrasound).

Yep, she's right! The more pregnancies, the earlier the discomfort starts. I feel like I could deliver any day!

lol. there are times that I stand up and could swear his head has to be just about out. Also, im pretty sure hes got hair lol I just hoping my cervix will stay closed for a while longer. With DD I started dilating at 33 weeks. I wouldnt be surprised if that happens again this time around with the way I am feeling already

Thanks everyone. All I know is that the next 10 weeks can not go fast enough at this point. I had my last 2 at 36 weeks, which is early, but not a whole lot. Once I get to that point I think I will be able to breathe easier (metaphorically... I'll (hopefully) still have someone pushing up on my ribs Wink ). I hope everyone is doing/feeling well as well Smile
