Okie dokie....So...went to the MW yesterday. I didn't sleep AT ALL...before I went to bed *this morning* I'd been up for 33 hours...no sleep. I was SO exhausted, but my mind and body wouldn't let me sleep.
Anywho, I told her about it and she asked if I'd had a glass of wine, I said no bc it didn't sound appealing. SO she said "you like beer...??" : I have permission to drink beer. : Then she checked me...I was 1 cm d, and really starting to funnel out. She felt the top of his head with her finger...cool! She had asked me when we first went in there if I wanted her to 'irritate things a bit'..I of course said yes. They don't really strip membranes unless they have to, which she didn't...she just played with my cervix a bit...lol. She poked and prodded Evan a bit...which I bc I get to feel his outline...and Ashton got to feel his outline too! It was SOOOO cool to see her reaction! Then she let Ashton take over and SHE was my MW! She located Evan's Heart beat through his cord, then his chest, took my BP, and measured me...which Evan had a growth spurt! Last week my bump was measuring at 34, 5 days later he measured at 36!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HOLY COW BATMAN!!!!!!!!!! I had mentioned that I thought Evan would weigh about 8 lbs at birth, Mw agreed, she says she thinks he's about 7 lbs right now just by poking at him.
She said that afterwards I would be achey and crampy...boy was she right! It started about an hour after...I was having REAL BAD CTX, coul dbarely stand up straight...back was miserable pain, the whole nine yards. I said to my mom " Now how am I supposed to know if this is just what she did to me or if I'm in real labor?????" lol We went back to moms house, I was supposed to take Ashton to her dad's but I was hurting SO bad that I had my dad take her. DH came to get me bc I didn't feel safe driving. So we went to the mall to eat at Chili's and then walked over to Barnes and Noble to find some big sister books. I went to go find a chair bc I was in imense pain, DH went to go find the books, and I sat there for no more than 5 minutes and was in so much pain and all the sudden I felt sick to my stomach and HOT. SO we high tailed it out of there and went home. The whole time I'm moaning and acting a fool. I felt stupid bc I don't think that I'm in real labor...but it sure feels like it.
So I had a *decent* nights sleep, still yucky tummy though. Had ctx all night. Not feeling *that* great this morning, but we are going to try to go to my SIL's house. I HAVE TO HAVE SOME SORT OF T-DAY FOOD! This is my fav holiday....I WILL NOT MISS OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol
OH YEAH! Ashton was wanting to be there when I had Evan, but she changed her mind yesterday. I think she saw me in pain yesterday and can't handle seeing mommy like that. I'm so very sad, but I understand where she is coming from. I would NEVER force her to go, but it just feels like a part of me will be missing. I'm actually REALLY sad about it. I was trying so hard not to cry.
SO that's me in a nutshell...if you don't hear from me for a couple of days...I'm either hurting to bad to get on, or I had a little tyke come into our lives!
