Thinking labor may be around the corner!

Last night was a terrible night for me and I did not get much sleep at all! I am feeling nauseous all the time, bouts of diarrhea, sharp pains in my tummy, I started having cramps in the tops of my thighs and I think I got up at least 8 times last night to go pee. Earlier I was having some really uncomfortable back pain, but it has since went away. Everything is just so sporadic, but if the back pain becomes consistent then it looks like another trip to L&D! I have Anita's phone number so I will keep her updated if I do end up back in L&D unless we are assigned our birth buddies by then. I told DH to be on standby because for some reason I think this baby is coming soon than later. :eek: I just don't see me making it full term now.

I am very confident that if I do have Sophia right now, she will be very healthy. The only downside is that we will be leaving another baby in the hospital which is the hardest thing to do. It was an easier transition with DS since I wasn't breastfeeding, but I'm sure this will be more challenging for the both of us. Most important thing is that she's healthy though and she may even just surprise me and decide to stay in another 3 weeks! Fingers crossed!

Oh my!!! This is all happening so fast, I haven't even had time to post on your other threads! I would hope she would stay in longer,but I do believe you are far enough along to have a very healthy little girl! You will be in my thoughts and take it easy!!!

I'm still hoping Sophia decides to stay put. Don't forget to drink lots of water while you are resting. Thinking of you both! Smile

Breast-feeding with a baby in the NICU is harder. The hospitals here all have rooms for moms but I didn't have a child at home which would make it more difficult. Hoping Sofia stays put for a few more weeks.

Hugs!

My doctor prescribed me Albuterol a couple of weeks ago to stop the contractions, but I stopped taking it because I didn't like the jittery feeling it gave me so yesterday she prescribed me Procardia. Now I have to stop taking that because it looks like I have a sunburn and my skin is extremely hot. I called her office and they said to stop taking it immediately, drink lots of fluids and to call 911 if I start having trouble breathing! WTH!

I hope you can avoid labour as long as possible until you are at term.

I think I'm good now. My skin is still a little red, but I'm feeling much better.
