I had to have my driver's license renewed a few months ago...I didn't mind too much, but I was in a hurry and just answering, yes, yes, yes, so I accidentally had her keep the weight the same, and when I thought about it I figured it didn't matter because I'll be that weight again soon! (Last time was pretty soon postpartum, and since I gained 40 lbs last pregnancy and so far have gained like 25 this time, I figure I'll be down to that weight a few weeks after birth anyway.)
We had an eventful weekend- Saturday I woke up at 5AM with infrequent but painful contractions. They didn't get more frequent, but they just would.not.stop. all day, so I called my MW, who said to take a bath, take some calcium magnesium, drink a lot, and call her back later if I had more than 3 or 4 in an hour. I enjoyed the bath, added a nap into the equation, but still had to call her later. So we ended up seeing her at 10pm Saturday. She'd looked through the paperwork and calculations for the due date, and reminded us (we had totally forgotten) that while we had calculated our due date based on when we think I ovulated, based on the LMP it would be two weeks sooner. So I could be at 36 instead of 34 weeks. In which case practice labor would be much more normal! She told me to take it really easy this week, but next week I can go back to my normal activity level because she feels comfortable with anytime past 37 weeks. I was in total shock when she said, "You can have a baby next
I am on also now on abx for a suspected UTI, so maybe that was why I was contracting. We also found out I have gestational diabetes, which apparently means I can eat... salad?
: I'm sure there is way more to it than that, just haven't read up on it yet. On the plus side, baby is no longer posterior!
