I have been having contractions, uncomfortable, painful ones all day for 2 days! Obviously not enough to make me think "OMG I need to go to the hospital", but my stomach feels like I have a uterus of steel! And seriously I can not live like this for 4 more weeks! I can't function, I can't bend over to help my son get his undies/pants on when he goes potty, etc.
I am already taking Procardia every 8 hours and it is not stopping my contractions at all! In fact they are getting worse, more often, all day as opposed to just mainly the evenings, and more painful.
I do have an OB appt tomorrow, and I will discuss it with her. That and I need to find out what I can take for the awful heartburn/indigestion I have been getting the past few days because I already take a prescription acid reducer (pantoprazole) and everything I read said don't take another acid reducer at the same time. But the meds I am currently on are not enough now I guess. Last night I had to prop my pillows up on the wall and have the pillows off the guest bed on both sides of me plus a pillow between my knees, to be able to somewhat sleep sitting up because the heartburn was so awful!
I really REALLY hate complaining about being pregnant...I am SOOOO thankful to be pregnant, but gosh it was not this hard last time.
Oh and on top of having the contractions, her movement has slowed dramatically today. I keep having to stop and concentrate to feel her when normally, she is kicking/punching me all day.
4 weeks from today is my scheduled c-section...can I just sleep til then?
Ok if you read all that, you deserve a cookie!
