i don't know what to do and i hate being annoying

I had a few contractions for sure this morning and now I'm just having excruciating pelvic pain and nonstop back pains and pressure and nothing is relieving the pains. Do i go in yet again or just suck it up? Its got me to the point of tears Cray 2

When in doubt go in. It'll ease your mind and if something is going on you did the right thing. ((hugs))

The back pain and pressure could be contractions. I had tons of those in labor with my son.

You're full term. It's going to happen any day now anyway, if you're concerned go in! That's what they are there for!

I keep having pains like that too. Especially right now because i did too much this morning. When I am undecided, I call them ahead and ask their recommendation. Last Friday I was having them for 8 hours and the nurses told me to go in, I did and the way I was laying, they stopped almost completely. I felt like a doof but they reassured me not to worry because I may feel the same way again and it will be the real deal and how would I feel if I didn't go in and something was going on? They were really cool. I'd call at least to ease you rmind!

I went in they gave me fluids and sent me home. They said it could be back labor but I'm only 1-2 cm so they couldn't keep me. They said try to get a sooner appointment with my Dr if i want which i need to anyways cause i can't make it Wednesday. He is weighing in at 8lbs 3oz now but my Dr won't induce for another 3 weeks so they say he should be close to 10lbs

I feel your pain Sad Hang in there. Hopefully he flips to a better position so the contractions arent all in your back, and the contractions start doing more. Sending you real labor vibes.

Ps. Dont feel stupid. I havent been sleeping well since being in L&D on Thursday. I keep waking up, freaking out that I dont feel wee dude moving, and then layong there till I do. This morning I was really tempted to go in and see if they could hook me up just to hear that his heart rate was ok. I def feel like im not as big as I was, and that I feel more of him when I feel my belly than i should be. Im just scared that his fluid levels are going to drop even more, and that hes going to start having more heart rate drops Sad also, my contractions are def still going, and it even got to the point whede I got sick and had to run for the bathroom. Ill

Those estimates can be way off. Also just trust that your body knows what it's doing and will make sure the baby comes out before he's too big for you. Obviously you having contractions and already dilated some is a good thing if he really is that big! ((hugs)) No matter what you don't have too much longer to go.

It does sound lilke you are in labor though! So don't feel dumb about going in! It is good to know how far it has progressed. ELV's and good luck! KUP!

I'm in so much pain I can't get in and out of bed or turn over without help. I'm seriously thinking of trying castor oil.

Try nipple stimulation first... Less hqvic on your system. If you have a pump hook yourself up. 5 to 10 min on, 5 to 10 min. Off. Gl

Then maybe try some spinnong babies techniques to get him facing the right way??? Sounds like he may be facing up and just needs to flip into the go position to put just the right pressure to make things happen.?

He's not forward his head is off to the side. So halfway there.maybe i'll give it a try.

How are you feeling today? Has the pain ceased? (((HUGS))) Sounds like you are going to have this baby sooner than later though which is exciting! ")

If you go in again if they send you home, ask them to strip your membranes. That got my labor moving with DS.

Spinning babies can work wonders to get kiddos to face correctly (and if anyone has a breech baby it helps flip them too!). Lots of walking, squats, etc too should get baby into position. Even if labor starts up staying moving will help the contractions to get baby in the best position (some kiddos are resistant till then). Not too much longer! I'm sure moving around hurts like hell, but hopefully it'll get things started! ((hugs))

The back pain has eased up but I'm still extremely sick. That medicine did nothing for my cough. I'm actually to the point of being so weak I can barely get out of bed and now my daughter is sick yet again cause I'm still sick. I go in tomorrow and the doc is out so I'm seeing a midwife so I'm going to ask about having my membranes stripped.

Glad to hear the back pain has improved. Hopefully that's a sign that the baby is facing better now.
Hope you find relief in some way soon.

I know how you feel. My doctor, midwife, and doula all scolded me for not calling at 1am a couple of weeks ago when I had 2 hours of contractions 3 minutes apart that I had to breathe through. But... I've had so many episodes of BHs, and it was the middle of the night, and how on earth am I supposed to know if that was the real thing?? It felt just like it did when I was in labor with DD, but according to the u/s they did the next day there was absolutely no dilation or effacement. I hate to be the mom who cried wolf. Blum 3

But you're further along than I am. Calling is probably the right thing to do. I hope you get some relief from that cold! :bigarmhug:
