I'm up in the middle of the night....I had to pee and then the baby got hiccups, and I have heartburn. The hiccups are kind of funny. The baby's so low now that it feels like the hiccups are in my bottom (sorry if it's TMI but it's such a weird feeling). This has happened several times over the past 12 hours or so and it just makes me laugh....but it's pretty hard to sleep through. I'm hoping they subside soon so that I can get back to sleep. I have to be up very early in the AM to drive my guys to work/school.
My midwife had to cancel our appointment yesterday because she was attending her last September birth. That means I'm supposed to be her next one. Our Vit K finally arrived yesterday too, so I'm hoping this baby comes sooner than later now. Pre-labor and waiting are not agreeing with me particularly. Yesterday morning I was on a huge nesting kick and I think I wore myself out. So yesterday afternoon I couldn't nap for some reason but I was so tired and so bored. I couldn't concentrate enough to read or to knit or anything like that and physically I was just done for the day. It was the hardest time I've had yet in terms of just waiting around for this baby to come. I'm trying to be patient but it's getting hard.
Micromama-I hope your daughter feels better soon and that you are able to stay well. It sounds like you are having quite a lot of pre-labor too.
Cindy-that sounds like a wonderful LC visit! It sounds like it made a real difference!
My mom and I keep talking about how we wish we had met with an LC outside of the hospital ones (who were not helpful at all) last time. I'm hopeful that between my midwife's student who is supposed to be one of the best LC's in the area, my midwife and my doula, who is a LLL leader, that we can get off to a good start this time, unlike last time. We've decided that we'll be calling the student to come back as an LC at the first hint of problems this time....and this child will see the chiropractor right away if there are issues too. I had a great processing discussion with my chiropractor processing what probably happened with DS and his newborn ear infection and then nursing problems and then later ear infections. She thinks that he had lingering physical birth trauma till he was probably about 2.5 years old given the way that he had so many ear infections till he was that age and that it probably impacted his ability to nurse and contributed largely to the fact that he never nursed for comfort or to sleep.
Okay the hiccups seems to be over now. I'm going to try to sleep again...
