So I'm 39 weeks today and starting to have painful contractions that could be regular but I'm too busy this morning to time them...lol My ob striped my membranes yesterday and I was 4 cm and 80%, baby was at -1 but not engaged yet, which is good because I think he is still face up, may have flipped last night though, it's hard to tell...Anyways, anyone else sitting at 4 cm and waiting for something to happen??? I'm having tons of blood tinged mucus, gross! Not sure if it's officially my "bloody show" or just from striping my membranes? My ob said if anything happens it will happen in the next 72 hours, so we'll see. Everytime my toddler nurses the contractions get really hard and super painful, but then slow down when he stops. so I don't know what is going on. I'm going to my baby shower put on my my husband's office, at which he has worked for a whole 3 weeks...needless to say, I'm so worried that my water is going to break at the shower, so I'm wearing a Depends, lol. Hopefully that will give you all a good laugh, I'm going to be giggling through the whole thing, contracting the whole time I'm sure, wearing my Depends like an old lady. Not sure they would be able to contain a big gush, but at least if I start leaking it should get me enough time to sneak out of there... Anyways, I'll try to update later if I can, we have to drive 2.5 hrs to the hospital so my body needs to decide what it's doing soon.... I'm off to wake my napping toddler(who in their right mind would do this?) and bath him before the baby shower. I'm driving by myself with my son into my DH office and it's making me a little bit nervous....Anyone else playing the "is it really labor" game?
Could this be it???
I saw my chiro yesterday and then went to Lowe's to pick up some parts for my hubby. Wasn't really positive I was going to make it across the store... but it passed. Then by the time I got home I was exhausted and felt sick and went to bed early. This morning I woke up happy and alert, but then my lower back got really achy and now I feel sick again. Not at all sure what is going on, but I wouldn't be surprised at all if my body is gearing up.
Nannybutterfly, so sorry to hear about all the craziness. Considering how close and intense your contractions got, I am so sorry they stopped. Maybe it wasn't just posterior baby, but also all the hecticness?
I hope staying at the hotel calms things a bit.
And I am no help for what to do to turn the baby around, but have you looked at spinningbabies for ideas?
