I hear that! Even though my belly seems small and the baby is definitely measuring smaller than average I've gained 40+ lbs and that is a lot to drag around when one isn't used to it.

at my appt on the 11th they were slightly concerned because i was only measuring 36 weeks instead of 38...i knew she was big though and gaining weight!

Becca!! Woohoo!!! Nicely done! And what a little doll!

 

Oh, just to be able to roll over in bed!!! :) I've gained just under sixty pounds,... I have a hard time believing that - I felt so much worse than this my first pg when I gained forty, but it's the rolling over, the getting up and down, right now just the walking. Really, it's like I'm walking around with a baby's head between my thighs, and well.. I guess I kinda am, so that would explain it. I've had so much soreness in my pelvis/pubic area, and it just seems to be from the pressure of the baby pushing down. It's worse after a round of contractions, calms down more if I stay up and moving.

 

Speaking of which, tomorrow I must do just that. I spent way too much time being still today, and *that's* certainly not going to get things going. I HAVE to pack for the birth center, and then maybe we'll try to go walking somewhere. We'll see how steamy it is and go from there I guess. I feel like there must be something subconsciously holding me back from really packing and mentally preparing and settling into the idea of having a baby in the next few days, but I really can't put a finger on what it could be. Hmmm.

well on Tuesday I went in to see the midwife because I hadn't felt the baby (it seemed all night). So after my chiro appointment I headed over there. (Thank goodness my inlaws were in town to watch the kids). She got the baby moving and his/her heartrate was good. So, I went home reassured.

 

I got to rest a lot this week and it has been so good for me! Last night (thursday...this little one spent another night very still) . Around 7:00 I got up, had some orange juice and tried to get the baby to move more. Though I got some movement I was concerned. So, I went in to see her again...(after eating a big lunch and trying again....I did get more movement but I needed to make sure).

 

THe MW was able to get the heartrate up 3 times lasting 30 seconds. Since I am overdue...and I tend to get big babies and with these "quiet spells" I decided to get a sweep. She barely, as she says,"aggravated me".:) (she also told me I was about 3cm dilated.

 

So the sweep was done at 2:30 in the afternoon and here I am at 1:30 or so in the morning and nada.

Gwen, I hope things move along for you soon!

Afm, still having stomach cramps. I managed to sleep for a few hours. I just wish something would come out. It feels awful. Since I've been laying down the contractions slowed way down. With my first labor I was sick from both ends and I have to say I'd rather welcome that at the moment. Something's got to move. Ugh.

I'm still here as well. I made my very last trip to Walmart yesterday as it was very painful and I just can't do that anymore. Sent DH to one birthday party with the kids and debating on whether or not  I will go to the next with them when they arrive home to pick up their food.

Today is my due date. I am also having a herpes outbreak, which means if I go into labor I could automatically risk into a C-Section. Awesome.

 

My mom is here, which is cool, but a bit stressful, which is not helping. She is helping but is kinda freaked out by the whole pregnancy thing (which is blowing my mind). I had her feel the baby moving and the baby kicked her HARD and she jumped back like a foot in the air and shrieked and knocked over a table with my computer on it nut.gif

 

Trying to be calm about this person tearing my house apart. *sigh*

Do you have any lysine? that should slow it down....and I know its strange but try apply cold compresses to the area. Try taking a disposable diaper, wettting it and then putting in your panties...that will sometimes slow it down. Stay away from cheese and chocolate.

well yesterday I was "swept" and still nada....what is going on I was due May 19.....crazy kid.

Yeah I am taking lysine valtrex and mushroom complex. I am avoiding nuts, seeds, caffiene, chocolate all that crap. It's just been stress stress stress not to mention the stress on the body just from being pregnant. I am also developing a yeast infection, which is also not good, so yay! monistat. SIIGGH.

Today went well for me! I did sleep ALL morning...until like 12:30 so I got like 12 hours o sleep last night but got quite a bit of work done today and even made it to the second birthday party the kids were invited to.  DH took them the to the first one by himself.  I wasn't as uncomfortable today. Hoping maybe that is a sign?
