Daily Chat Sunday 3/29! - Page 2

post #21 of 32
mischievium: YAY - hope you're holding your little one by now or well on your way! :

Sounds like nearly everyone's doing great! It is a lovely day here, too. I feel good, actually, despite being 5 days away from due date and no signs at all yet. Maybe I'll be on of those that goes into labor with no warning and everything goes fast and wonderfully!

Congrats to Stephanie and little Eden MaryAnn - another April baby in March! :

Thanks Shine! Its like they're just the pre-cold sore or something, basically I just get little cracks in the corners of my mouth. But yes, Abreva isn't even working and as soon as one side is good the other side is cracked.

I'll try that vinegar (oh yuck). I think I read its also supposed to help with heartburn/reflux which has been my biggest problem this pregnancy. I've been doing aloe juice and baking soda water and it really cant get much worse than those disgusting little remedies.

I'm feeling very miserable. I want this pg to hurry up and be over with I had yet another night of do nothing ctx. There were a few "real" feeling ones in there and for awhile I was hopeful it was happening but nope

I'm feeling really sorry for myself today

I hear ya. Same experience, past three nights...

And today, I laid down for an hour (so so tired) - had some pretty painful and intense ctx the whole hour while I'm TRYING to sleep - got up, they disappeared. WTH??

I'm just so tired. This is ridiculous. If nothing happens before I go to bed tonight, I'm taking Benadryl. Two always knock me out.

Azreial and MI Dawn. I hope you can both get some rest. Prodromal labour is so annoying and exhausting!!

That is so awesome. But I know what you mean about weird; I was thinking when I go back to work tomorrow, I can say "next week" if people ask. That just sounds so...imminent!

So right there with you. I had that all day today but in my mind can't really call them contractions. I don't know what they are, but I just keep hoping it means something's going on down there! I wish I had the "Baby come out!" Hypnobabies CD because I'd be listening to it every day if I did!

I've been taking a skullcap tincture the past two nights, and it really does help. Especially if I refrain from chocolate like I know I should. :

Oh gross, sick, disgusting. I just drank that cup of warm water with tbsp apple cider vinegar. It sort of hurt going down, I think instant reflux. I finished it off with 2oz aloe juice and then a cup of cool water with baking soda. I am really ready to be done with this psychotic heartburn and reflux; the chest pain is keeping me up at night, I can't even enjoy eating (and its my last chance to pig out)!

heatherweh ...I love food and this makes me sad...hoping your baby drops in time for you to enjoy a few awesome meals :

Well, I walked again today, but can't go to far from a bathroom, so it was short by necessity. I got chocolate om the way home, but wth? :

I've got a new stretching sensation today...the inside of my hips right where the belly pops out...hoping this means she's getting ready to move down.

I have to say that I'm still feeling okay, so I can bear it awhile...but I'm just so ready to meet her!!

Spending a lot of time on the birth ball.

DH and I started watching the mini-series "Bleak House" online on netflix and it's great! That's one of my favorite Dickens novels and they do a great job...I recommend it!

A little more insomnia... I went to bed exhausted but am up again, thoughts of birth dancing in my head. I need to break out of this and find the silver lining again, I keep obsessing over the bad from birth #1. This time will be a whole different experience, new doctor, new hospital, better support, new baby...

Wow a whole bunch of babies wanted to get in on the March birthday's last minute huh?

I went on a walk with DS today and have decided walking is highly overrated. Baby apparently decided to wedge a foot or elbow or something under my ribs, so I had a sharp pain there for most of the walk, like a stitch in my side, then my poor knees and ankles decided this is all just too much. Sigh. I've reached my heaviest weight ever and while I proudly jut out the huge tummy and huge boobs I still cringe when I knock something over with my ass daily (usually my poor DS who follows me around).

Well, I'm only one episode in, but she seems to be great in the role!
