I am just ready.....as the days tick by I battle my fears of a huge baby and a hard birth. I am tired of the timed contractions that last a few hours and then stop. I will be 39 weeks tomorrow and I every day for the past week and a half I have thought that day was IT......sigh. My hips are just so sore and it's RELLY hard getting up in the middle of the night-all night.
come on baby......I'm ready.
big baby NOT problem. Positioning is key....well positioned baby makes for easy and gentle birth. Speaking from experience on this one just a few days old. My biggest baby yet, almost a full pound bigger than my biggest...pushed him out in 3 min, once he engaged.
Hang in there.
It IS better once the labor and "delivery" is over. But, afterbirth pains, etc... (read: hemmoroids) can be almost worse. So can blisters on your nipples. The consolation is that you have a baby beside you...and that is a pretty damn great thing to have.
I still haven't been able to sit. Tried to push in some hemmoroids in the shower this morning. Hurt so bad I started shaking and saw all black and almost passed out...dh came to my rescue. The upside is that a few of them stayed in and those feel MUCH better. The down side is that a few (my most painful) came right back out, so I'm gonna have to do all this again tomorrow...or sooner if I can manage the pain. Began taking my first pain killing medication of the entire birth this morning...ekamoll, the Israeli equilivant of tylonol. I wish I had some good valerian tincture...my herb just must be bad. Arnica is not helping at all. Tramaiel cream not helping. Motherwort and skullcap tincture not doing much. No choice.
