post #61 of 231
just popping in to say, i hope everyone sleeps well and as comfortably as possible tonight!

and, my husband and i talked about prenatal yoga. i found out the recommended (by my MWs) studio near me allows drop-ins for any class, and prenatal is $10 a week, and there's a class tomorrow! he really wants me to go, and so i wouldn't stress about the money offered me his fantasy football winnings to pay for it . so blessed.

True. I'm still slacking big time this week. I HAVE to do laundry tomorrow, as I've promised DS his dinosaur jammies, and I really need to sort through baby clothes and organize them by size, then pack anything bigger than 6 months in to boxes that we won't be needing to access during our first move. I just don't wanna.

SCG - I feel like i am following my belly everywhere lately. Waddle waddle. online is definitely the way to go.

Dena - That's really one of those 'insult to injury' things. It makes me just want to yell "REALLY? This too?!" Good luck with those.

I'm considering a trip to the library, and maybe to the art store, if i can convince myself to put back on pants. Anything with a waist band is killing me lately. My pelvis must be pretty roomy, because she has already moved in.
Yes! The thirst! Or all of a sudden I'd be starving and all "WTF? I just ate!" Of course if I tried to eat while nursing DS, he'd stop, stare and refuse to nurse until I put down the food. He was a little better with beverages, but most of the time I was pumping while I was nursing him (I was pumping for DD3 for about 4 months) so didn't have hands to drink anything.

I feel you on the pants issue. It's underwear for me though. No matter which ones I wear they're so uncomfortable. There's two pairs that feel good and don't make me wince when I take them off, and of course I can't find more of them anywhere. They just press right on my belly, way at the bottom, and make him squirm/kick/punch even more than usual.




I know I'm dehydrated but can't seem to drink water. I just don't think about it until the very end of the day and then I don't have time. I annoy myself. I really need to get better about it. I know he's not suffering any ill effects right now, since he's crazy wiggly, but I'd like to be well hydrated for this last stretch.

He is SO much more active than DS was! It's fun to watch him roll around, which he does for about 4 hours a day, then takes a nap, then is back to rolling, although his afternoon activity is punctuated by kicks/punches. He's scrappy, that's for sure. Think he knows he's coming in to a house with 4 older siblings and will have to hold his own?

I'm ok! kinda....

I did test positive on the 24th for Morphine, but something could have caused it. I guess we wait for yesterdays UA...but I'm not on drugs..and they did give me morphine in the hospital. I had to sign releases for them to get records for the dentist because he did give me valium and vicoden also...can you make me not look like I am taking drugs?

Anyways, Jennings heart rate stayed 140-167. Passed the NST. My fluid is LOWER and he really isn't moving..he shifted a teeny tiny bit after being pushed on and they called that "movement"..I call that you just made him move with the u/s wand by pushing on him, he didn't move on his own.
They waver between taking him or not. Everyday when I leave it's "we still don't know what's going on, we'd like to hospitalize you but even in the hospital we can't monitor 24/7 and he could still die..going home he has a 50-60% chance of dying by tomorrow"...SO F'ING TAKE HIM? why wait till he dies? WTH? 50-60% is HIGH in my books..no I don't want a preemie. no i don't want to be in the NICU. it would be wonderful to wait till 33-34 weeks...but SERIOUSLY? are we waiting for him to die?
He scored a 8/8 on a BPP just because of that tiny movement..which was not movement. why isn't he moving? where is the fluid going? they can't answer a damn thing.
This is so stressful...I need for something to happen because I can't take this anxiety and waiting. As bad as that sounds, I can not sleep and I am not sleeping because of everything...atleast I know the risks/odds/chances if they took him..right now I am in a black room with nothing hoping something will happen so I can figure out how to get out.
I am told to leave my bags packed and bring them daily..ok so they are. Go again tomorrow...yay. I am sure they will say THE SAME EXACT THING..he has a good NST but he isn't moving and you've lost more fluid and we suggest you stay.
Oh but the bleeding has stopped and there isn't any new showing.

So yesterday I had a mani/pedi..feels soooo good. Tonight I had a hair cut and had it colored all one color..looks pretty..all ready now

OMG that is VERY low. I wouldn't be comfortable with a H/H that low out of the hospital come 37+ weeks. So hit all the iron points you can, and if you can get an herbal iron absorption aid do that too. It takes several weeks for your blood iron stores to build back up, so when an H/H is that low I like to wait for 3 weeks with aggressive supplementation and test again. This is just past the point where if we were to draw blood every day we'd see the lowest amount, so your H/H should go up on it's own, but only by a couple of points; I would risk out or consult heavily for a hemoglobin under 10 or a hematocrit under 30 at term, so you have more than a few points to go.

It made me smile, which random pregnancy/lots of kids comments rarely do.
Awww, sweet!

I hope you have a good resolution soon.


AFM, I saw my OB today. No mention yet of bedrest, but I have an ultrasound on Thursday to check the babies and to check my cervical length. Fingers crossed that everything looks good. I talked to my OB about my back pain and my mom, and he pointed out that this was about the same point where I lost one of the babies in my last pg, and told me not to underestimate my body's ability to remember trauma, cautioning me that the double losses may increase my anxiety and my sensitivity to pain. I thought that was remarkably insightful for a mainstream doc.

Just one more day till I see my cranio-sacral therapist. Hopefully she will be able to work her usual magic on my back. I will bring up my OB's observations to her, if she hasn't thought of them already - she can also work on muscle memory and energy healing, which may also help the pain levels.

SO I had permission to go have my hair done..a mam who is about to have a preemie needs to have her hair done yesterday was a mani/pedi.

So here is before(excuse the horrible worn out tired look) http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y76...beforehair.jpg

and my after(still worn out and tired) http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y76.../afterhair.jpg

It is so much lighter. They also made it all one color, finally after having those horrible highlights growing out for over a year. It is still long enough to do a ponytail, but shorter and cuter to wear down. I feel so much better..I'd still like to be able to do a belly cast and have a few maternity photos..but with the way tonight is going, we'll have to see
I am having that intense cramping -not contractions- and whew..painful.
post #68 of 231
Ericka, you look absolutely great. I'm really hoping that whatever way things go, you and baby will come out healthy and happy on the other side.
post #69 of 231
Ericka- I love the new haircut! It looks very fresh and comfy.

I wonder what they're waiting for on taking Jennings. It seems like at this point his survival chances are actually higher OUT of the womb. I don't know, though. Is he still measuring way behind? Not that u/s measurements are all that accurate. Either way, I assume he's probably not putting much weight on at this point.
post #70 of 231
Yeah, I'm really surprised at why they're not just taking Jennings, too. I wish they could give more answers! I am so sorry you are going through this, Ericka.

AFM:
I got a LIBRARY CARD in our new town! I am SO excited. I have not had a good book to read in a month, and I feel like I'm operating on a serious thinking-deficit. We are definitely heading there as soon as I can pull myself together for a shower.

I have had horrible dreams for three nights in row! Maybe it is the full moon-- I hope so, or the rest of this pregnancy is going to be really unpleasant. It would make sense is they were "something is wrong with the baby dreams," but they're not-- last night I was battling the mafia of my tiny hometown () and I kept trying to call my husband on his cell phone to ask him to explain to me how my tiny pistol worked, but he wouldn't answer... at least that one is mildly amusing. The rest are so distressing I probably shoudln't post them.

Well, that is very encouraging!

I have to say, as much as I still feel a little tinge of disappointment when I see two sisters running around and playing together, there is a BIG part of me that occasionally feels like, "ooookay-- hopefully all those DDC ladies are right, and girls are more dramatic." DD is named Constance (which I meant to mean something more like, "integrity," you know), but we joke all the time that she lives up to her name-- she's a persistent as a badger. So now Dh and I are saying that we should name this new baby something like, "Agreeable" or "Silence."

Our midwives have a "birth stool" that is actually (they said) one of the stools to assist with yoga hand stands (?)-- it looks like it would work really well as a birthing stool, though, and it's only 10 in. off the ground. Apparently, they used it at a recent birth and it was great. I'm planning to use it-- though I also am hoping to research the Bradley squatting exercises and work on those, too.

Sunday, when I had my parents available for back-up, she was pleasant as could be! And today, terribly grumpy again. And the endless strangers wanting to fawn over her made things so much worse. She is NOT acting cute! Don't try to cheer her up. Don't encourage her grumpiness. Don't tell me, "she's smiling at me!". How'd you like to take her home, then?
Here's an example of today. We were stopping at Target, our last place before going home. I thought, it's cold and rainy and DD is grumpy -- let's pop into their mini-Starbucks and grab hot chocolates! That worked wonders last time! So I get us hot chocolate with whipped cream, and stop by the stand to get straws and stir and blow on her hot chocolate. While it's open, I offer her some whipped cream from the top. She breaks down into tears. I'm trying to find out what's going on, and two older ladies walk by and stop and start coo'ing and aw'ing. Which totally makes DD freak out more, and the tears turn into screaming hysterics. At least that makes the ladies walk away. I nearly burst into tears myself. But I keep it together, and finally calm her down enough to ask what was wrong. And all she can say is, "I want the whipped cream to stay in the cup!"
That happens to me all the time! That's better than people sneering or making snide comments, I guess, but it still drives me crazy-- mostly because it only makes things worse. DD is not a fan of strangers. Once she fell down and scraped her knee pretty badly (and dropped her baby in the process) and a very kind old man came over, picked up her baby (HORROR! ), got right in her face, and started trying to comfort her (while she was in my arms!) Oh, my. The screaming hysterics...

I mentioned her persistence-- for WEEKS afterwards, almost every day, she asked, "Mommy, why did that strange man at the library come over and talk to me and pick up my baby? Why?"

OH, and the whipped cream in the cup :eyeroll I really, really struggle with this. I want her to grow up to be strong and self-sufficient and calm in the face of adversity, and I do not find the little fits about minutiae very easy to handle.

If anyone offers me hot chocolate with cool whip they'd better be prepared for a total meltdown.
I am totally with you. I don't think my Dh is ever bored. If he can't find something to do, he just takes a nap wherever he is It's probably one of the biggest strains in our marriage, because I'm the kind of person who is either workng on a project or being-lazy-but-feeling-guilty-for-not-working-on-a-project-- so I just don't even get how someone can enjoyably spend an entire Saturday sleeping in, playing video games, eating lunch, taking a nap, watching a movie, falling asleep at 8:30. (and, of course, a part of the reason I don't "get" that is because I'm the one on DD patrol all that time)
I also just hate video games. They are such a time-suck. If he were reading a book I would feel differently.

I agree (and Rhi, did I just quote you 3 times? )-- aren't his chances now ex utero like... 85%? That sounds a lot higher than 50!
post #72 of 231
loveneverfails, thanks for the answer re dehydration and breathing - never thought of that!

ericka, great cut and color . i really hope you get some better answers today, though i guess a premie at any age is a huge expense and trial for a parent. seems like as long as they think he's ok, he's better off staying put? does that seem to be their approach? maybe not a bad idea do you usually go in with a list of questions - cause maybe if you could get a better idea where they are coming from you'd feel more secure trusting their judgment not to take jennings now? or be ready to make the decision for sure to have him delivered now?

rhiorion, i get annoyed at my husband for never being bored either, but then i see that he'd rather watch a movie than be bored, and i'd actually rather avoid doing that every. night. i think that just filling time is what my husband does SOMETIMES... what really annoys me is that i am forever the one waiting for him, b/c he has crammed one last thing in to check out or look at online when we are trying to get out the door. whereas, i will get ready and BE ready.... and waiting..... argh! anyway, i think these things are related, and probably make you more open to being available emotionally and logistically to being a great mom

dhinderliter, goodness, sorry about the anemia! i'm glad you were tested, and hope it goes back up quickly.

and someone answered my comment about my pain in my labia/vagina being maybe related to lower back pain.... never would have thought of that either! i'm feeling good about actually stepping up to do yoga. i thought my regular elliptical work would relieve my back pain (which seems to be lower back and upper butt muscles mostly) because it would work and strengthen those muscles, but it hasn't for whatever reason. i bet the yoga will help - even the few positions i've done at home seem to be tension relievers and provide good stretching/positioning to my hips and lower back.
post #73 of 231
Erika - I have to agree that they seem to be taking more by not taking Jennings - maybe they misunderstood you before. But if is chance of survival is igher ex utero, I'd be inclined to push the issue a little bit.

P&H - that is sso sweet of your DH to offer up is $ for you. My DH took on extra tutoring work to pay for our doula. I love him!

Dena - GL w/your appt - hope it helps!

AFM - I am looking forward to prenatal yoga tonight. yay

I don't know if you were being sarcastic or not. There is light at the end of the 3 year old tunnel is all I was trying to say.

And at the name comment. I really should have researched DD3's name better, as everyone I know with her name has exactly this personality. Combine the first and middle names and it's like I named her "Stubborn McTalksalot."




Non-bored DHs. My hubby is like yours, MPP. He can just hang out on the couch all day Sunday watching football, playing on his laptop, napping, etc. On the plus side for us though, these days that's all I want to do by the time Sunday rolls around too, and the kids are happy to play together and entertain each other.

Oh, and all of my girls are much closer to their little brother than they are to each other, with the exception of DD1 and DD3, but there's a 6 year age gap between them so I think that helps. DD1 and 2 fight constantly, 2 and 3 annoy the beejeebus out of each other, but all of them get along marvelously with DS.

[QUOTE=rhiOrion;15013522]Actually, I feel a bit like that right now.

I'm absolutely exhausted for no good reason- I slept in (couldn't have gotten out of my ice-rink of a parking lot first thing this morning), ate plenty of protein, and don't have to go to birth class tonight. I should have energy. I don't.

And I sort of just want to cry. I'm bored, but I don't want to do anything productive like clean the kitchen or pack. I don't know what I want to do. And DH is playing guitar hero, and I just want to throw the Wii out the window right now, but then he'd just go upstairs and play something on his computer.

Wow, I have no idea where that rant/whine came from. It occurs to me that maybe after our cold snowy weekend that I'm starting to have a few SAD symptoms. I thought I'd gotten away without them this year. Even on good years they tend to sneak up on me somewhere around the beginning of February.

*sigh*

Thank You! you just wrote exactly how i keep feeling, to the T! We just moved here from AZ this winter and i've already been crying to dh that we have to move back before next winter-i'd forgotten about SAD bc never got it in my 7yrs living in Phoenix!
I woke up utterly exhausted and seem to always get bored now but don't want to do anything. I've given up my MW prescribed bedrest bc i just have to get up sometimes! Thank goodness for internet

growing up, there was a constance in our church who was a whirlwind! we called her "constantly"

make sure to share how those bradley squatting exercises work for you! oh, and i rarely share my dreams b/c they either fall into completely boring or scary disturbing! your mafia one is funny though

dena, , i can't imagine losing a baby so late in pregnancy... so glad your OB was sensitive to you, and hope your appointment does wonders.

I was up all night with horrible cramping pain and throwing up due to the pain...I feel horrible saying this, but I don't know how much more I can take...Something is wrong with my body and I hate the "we don't know"..I avoided taking anything cause you know, I am such a drug addict...but I spent the better portion crying. Not contractions, cramping...bad bad cramping. I have to rush to the bank today cause I have on bill due tomorrow that has to be paid in person, the rest can be done online or over the phone...I feel like begging them to take him, even though I don't want it..I just hate the feeling "is he still alive"..I can't figure out these pains but OMG.

Would your insurance cover any sort of home health aid to come check on you every so often? I worry about you being home alone with a toddler with all these scary issues. What happens if there is some sort of sudden problem? Please assure me that you keep your cell phone nearby at all times.

I was also thinking home health aid, because eventually you're BOUND to talk to a compassionate person, right? And maybe someone who sees you spend time with your child and sees your difficult situation would be just that sort of person.

I don't blame you at all for thinking about asking them to get him out... you're walking a fine line as to which is better, and it's hard to tell which side you're on at any given moment.

Do you have a hard time expressing yourself when you're actually faced with a Dr? So much of what these people are saying to you is so absolutely ridiculous that I'm not sure I could come up with a coherent argument if faced with your situation. Maybe you could write a letter laying out some of your concerns? Not to play the blame game, because that would just make them defensive, but rather more of an innocent "I'm doing the best I can" type of letter, saying that you know they deal with a lot of unfit parents, but that you need them to be assured that you are doing the best that you can under the circumstances, and that you aren't being abused, that you don't do any drugs not prescribed by a doctor, and that now they have you fearing of even taking prescribed medications. And maybe what you need them to do... like, help you come up with solutions to your problems, not just saying "you need to do this" without seeing the other side of your coin.

I was also thinking that something like that might be good to have on file in case they do decide to call CPS or something. Especially because it would show that you're level-headed. Like, I said, though, I'd avoid sounding confrontational... maybe more like disappointed.

Actually, I think I'd write a really confrontational one, then the one you are actually going to give them. It would probably help to get it all out.

(*disclaimer: I am not a dcotor, lawyer, or CPS expert... so I have no idea if this is really a good idea. But I know I tend to be much more coherent, persuasive, and get my points across much better when I write things out)

ok...i had to reread that twice to make sure i understood what you were saying! the birth center didn't mention anything about risking me out. however there's 8-9 weeks before i go into labor so i have to time to get it all back up but i'm sure they'll test me at least 2x more to make sure. they gave me supplements (iron only) and i'm to take them 2x a day with OJ. I am surprised that I haven't fainted or even noticed to much change in myself but i guess with how much other stuff is going on i just adjusted. baby's fine though. i did notice last week or so that his movements changed...but it was the change of "room" vs SQUISHED. lol. he definatly is squished now.

i think that the "terrible 2's" weren't terrible at ALL. both kids were preverbal at that time and they are both mellower kids though. ds started being a PAIN IN THE BUTT about 3.5 and he's still doing it. drive's me nuts. dd so far is pretty easy...but we'll see what happens when she finds her voice.

well erika i'm not sure what to say. your 31w2d or 3d? they wanted to wait till 32 right? time has flown by since this started! you aren't working are you? also sounds like your mom and you are on a bit better terms for right now as well. if your fluids low maybe jennings can't really move. or he's to tired. so that raises the question if he's tired but still has a great heartrate is he growing/gaining positivily being in still? i didn't hear if they are still giving steriod shots? i guess if he can stay a few more days...make it to 32 weeks, make sure he has ALL the steroid shots possible and make sure that he can gain as much as possible...eat the most EFFICIENT foods possible since maybe the placenta isn't working full force what he gets needs to be powerpacked and then be ready to have him taken in 3 days+.

i haven't seen claire's carepage updated in a while (i get the emails when it updates). is everything ok or am i missing the updates?

my back hurts...from the middle of my back down to my knees. and what is with pregnant pelvis not working?! i am waddling too and i don't understand why! the pelvis is supposed to SWAY...sway darn you! my knees feel like an old mans. i've never had this problem before and it can leave right now!
