today is a huge let down considering yesterday seemed so promising. I just felt like things were happening yesterday. Today, i am not even having any real significant BH contractions like I have been the last few days. Yesterday i was losing plug, everything. Today, my body and uterus has gone strangely quiet though baby is still really active. Maybe its the calm before the storm, lol.
On a more aggrivating note, I have gallbladder disease and deal with severely painful attacks every so often. I haven't had one in quite a while though. Yeah, it should have been removed yrs ago its so filled with stones but something always came up. Lost insurance, a pre-surgical false positive on a pregnancy test (yep, the universe really didnt want me gettting it out that day, lol) So here I am having had issues since before 2005 and still have it. Pregnancy always aggrivates it. The pain is so bad, sometimes i end up in the ER because it feels like I have a knife in my ribs and someone just keeps twisting and twisting it. Then, they set it on fire just for wow factor, lol. They ER will sometimes give a narcotic pain med in IV (even while pregnant) sometimes not, I dont ask if they dont offer I just go in for the bloodwork if its severe enough because I have to watch out for it causing pancreatitis as that is life threatening and I have had an attack cause that before and not know it until i went in and was hospitalized.
Anyhoo, I have been having pinching pain in my gallbladder for days now but no attack and today I just figured out why. She has her feet there and is kicking and stretching her legs pushing against my very sensitive touchy gallbladder and making it hurt. I keep preparing myself for an attack as this hurts just like the start of them but its just her. She is in so much trouble when she gets here!
As far as still being pregnant, I am only 3 days past my DD. No biggie I guess. Though today I did for a few minutes consider a small dose of castor oil and for some reason ended up on youtube watching all these women down castor oil and videoing their results. They all just ended up with horribly painful diarrhea and had their babies a week or two later. Changed my mind, lol.
DH thinks it will be tonight though. I think that is just because its his sisters bday and she rented out this VIP section in this club and its all poshy and he is stopping in after he gets off work this evening IF I haven't gone into labor. I think he just says tonight because he is afraid he wont be able to go (he doesn't go out much like that but used to all the time before we got together and our first baby together so daddy has settled down so much). I had a weird feeling this weekend would be it too. Not looking good for tonight though but ya never know I guess. I woke up with the liquid stools again but thats nothing new, been on and off for a week, no two weeks so I dont put stock into any of that now.
Darn, the more I think about it, that castor oil sure is tempting...then again, do I reallly want that burning bum again? Nah.
This awesome kids consignment shop near me called "Once upon a child" guess its a chain and they have them everywhere, was having this huge clearance sale today. They sell used (but almost like new, no staining or visible wear really) and gear such as bumbos swings, high chairs, shoes, all the way up to like preteen sizes, maybe 12 14 yr olds. I love this place because as great of a deal it is, DH's friend owns this one and gives us like 40% off the already cheap price everytime we go. Anyway, the clearance was 50% from open to 11, then 60% then ending in like 70% by closing time. I was all for going and looked forward to it for a week until last night I saw their facebook post about people camping outside the doors in tents the night before. WHAT??? Its that serious??? LIke black friday serious??? Me and my due any day self aint camping out just to get in the store. So DH called his friend and asked if it was really all that or if that was a facebook exaggeration and he said no its really that big and women fight over onesies and such so i decided to pass. All I needed was basic onesies and cotton pants and sleepers and stuff, not worth the aggrivation to my SPD. If I don't fight the madness on black friday, i aint doing it for some onesies that I can get a deal on anyday of the week anyway with our connection, lol. So, I did nothing today and didnt get out of the house at all.
As I was typing this, the weather got really interesting and went from super sunny to 8pm like dark outside (though its only 4:30) and its looking pretty forboding. Maybe a nice summer storm. Who knows, maybe the barametric pressure will start labor for me. Or, maybe I will pass by that cabinet one more time where that castor oil is calling me from the shelf. Yep, I have lost it too now, lolololol
