Candace is a trouble maker already.

I went for my Ob apt Friday .. that went well i lost weight so i'm at 6lbs gained so far Yahoo
everything was good.

Saturday morning I woke up with flu like symptom.. no sign of them prior before , so it caught me off guard :confused:
also saturday I was having this really bad pain in my upper stomach which i been having since 17wks but this time it came I started cry.. My MW told me to Go to L & D to get checked out.
7th ultrasound this pregnancy every thing is fine. They checked my liver spleen and for gallstones test was neg. MW says its most likly the way she is laying and i'll have to deal with this pain till i give birth.

Sunday Morning I feel much better But can hardly walk cause my lower back was in so much pain . i can't believe this. So I just take it easy and stay in bed all day.

This morning I work up feeling good so I go to the store with my mom to get dinner for 2 nights.. this is @ 8:30 . 25min after we get in the store and I start walking im getting contractions and have to stop every 10 min to let them pass at times I had to sit down .

Once I get home they are still going and I drink 30+ ounces of water peeing every 10- 15min.
Nothing change its 12pm by this time. So i call MW and thinking she will just say lay down for the rest of the day she says go to L & D .. WHAT!!!! :eek: Really i was just there. I was trying to get out of going but at this point mu nurse screamed at me and SAID go .. cause if I have a baby @ 26wks the survival rate is not high .. So DH says Lets Go. Mind you the contraction were only when I stood up and start walking not when I lay down or sit up ..

Long story short.. we are Fine no dilation and am to stay off my feet as much as I can and rest more often.. yeah with 3 active boys.

I just pray this lil girl don't play this Tag game with L& D cause i'm not fond of going to the hospital unless its time to deliver.

that it for now.. Thanks for reading

Candace!!! Silly girl, stay in there and give mommy a break!!! Wink

I'm glad theres no dilation! Try to rest ... I know its HARD with 3 boys (heck its hard with 1 some days, so you must be extra busy and tired!) Are there any family or friends around that could help with the boys, even for a day or 2 so that you can get extra rest.

Sorry you're dealing with this! It's nearly impossible to "take it easy" when you've got other little ones. Hopefully it's just a bug or something causing things to be irritable and will pass.
KUP on how you're doing!

Sorry to hear about your many trips to L&D and your pain. I hope you are done with L&D until delivery and your pain subsides.

Good luck getting rest too Smile

My mom will get them for a while then she is calling me to get them.. She don't have the Energy for them.. 1 at a time she says.. But i still have 2 that don't do me any good if she just take 1 . LOL
I try, my husband gets on me about taking a break and rest.. but he work most of the day.

I pray my mother's day is full of pampering cause I really need a break
I'm a emotional mess and I want to get this pregnancy over with sooner than later But with a healthy baby. I really have reached my limit .. I'M tired of being pregnant .. since 2004 .. I need my body back and my self back. I hate crying over every lil thing

Cassandra your boys are gorgeous. they have the most infectious smiles i've ever seen.

Is there a neighbor or friend that you can call to watch the boys for a couple of hours or even an hour a day so you can rest during that time?

Glad that there wasn't any dilating and your LO is fine. Girl, I feel your pain about L&D. I don't want to see that place until its time for delivery. It really does help if you stay off of your feet as much as possible. But in your case with 3 active boys that's gonna be kinda hard. Hopefully someone will be able to come and help out with them even if it's just for a few hours a day just so you can get some extra rest.
