going into 3rd day of contractions... - Page 2

post #21 of 29
I just wanted to update that I took some Calcium, Magnesium and Vitamin D supplements that I had and it got my uterus to calm down. I definitely echo that you try that. I called my midwife after I tried it and she told me "good job". She told me I could have some wine too, but I'm going to wait and have that when I really need it. It'll be a nice unwind for me and DH too, even though I'm on pelvic rest :

Totally OT, but I just noticed that the pp's bfing smilie (in her sig) is AA. I like the AA bfing smilie better than the Caucasian looking one... How come you get a pretty bfing mom?

The reason for saying no bigger than 8.5lb is my DD#1 that size nearly didnt make it. She was bruised severely nearly to her abdomen. When she was coming down i was unable to open my legs until there was an audible pop and her head came thru my pelvis. The doctor then told me it wouldnt be safe for the baby if i had another that was any bigger and she was suprised her collar bone or soemthing else wasn't broken.

I've had to be induced for one reason or another every time(Pre-E, 2wks OD, water broke for 40hrs no ctx, etc).. I"m REALLY hoping to NOT be this time but induction is WAY better than section! They know i wont agree to section unless it is a true emergency not "their" emergency(like needing to get home to their fav show ) I've gone 54 1/2 hrs from water breaking to delivery before.. they know i'm stuborn about not sectioning and 2 of the 3 docs agree i cant handle a section and recovery time involved. which is the only reason i'm kinda in agreement on inducing then. It is still up to me though.

i dont put to much faith in size from ultrasounds either BUT i'm measuring 5weeks ahead and lost 2lb those speak more to me than other stuff.

I'd just relax and see where labor takes you! Your OB said the baby feels full term, so I wouldn't worry too much

Good luck!
She was teasing how she said it...like you can controle when baby comes! yes the aim is full term(min 38wks) BUT 36 IS better than35, 37 is better than 36..etc

update- took the calcium and magnesium, i thought maybe they had slowed some, took a back toook some of the soreness but only a little contractions picked up quite quickly to 3 minutes apart and rather uncomfortable, had to blow thru a couple of them so decided to go to the hospital. Dilation hadn't changed and no fluid leaking, i was questioning that on the way in, contractions were about 2min 45sec apart lasting just over a min. but not "doing" anything.. so i got sent home to rest better than i had been.

Well, i'm laying back, doing basicly nothing(which stinks!!!) i'm totally exhausted, the contractions have become irregular which is good butt they are still driving me crazy!

Good Stick to your guns. I hope that when it comes time for your induction, you will be ripe and ready to go .

Hope you keep that baby in there a little longer. Oh, and I forgot to mention to make sure you keep your bladder empty. I always have a lot more contractions when I have a full bladder. When my contractions started up at 26 weeks they were only lasting about 15 seconds. As the weeks have passed by they've gotten progressively longer-- from 30 seconds to now a little over a minute each time. I hope you can get some rest. I know how much they suck!
