post #81 of 245

My husband and I ended up having a GREAT conversation around our argument yesterday, one of those awesome "wow, you really get what I'm saying" dialogues.  So I cheered up immensely.  Then I had a great prenatal, a fun playdate with friends, and THEN my sisters and good friend made me a celebratory "end of pregnancy" dinner that was insanely delicious.  Now we're about to head to the park to meet with friends because it's in the 50s today, and then I have date night with my husband, so I am feeling really good.  Tired, because I was up til 2:30 talking (!), but good.

 

Baby has definitely engaged in last 48 hours, which is encouraging.  Lost a little bit of plug last night but I don't find that compelling in any way unless it continues/turns into bloody show.  Other than that no changes to report.  Just a better mood than yesterday morning.  I would love for baby to come this weekend but kind of hoping s/he doesn't come tonight because I'm looking forward to alone time with the dude.  Also, I want to take advantage of the opportunity to sleep in tomorrow!

I would love a date night with DH. But I would love for him to plan it and surprise me. And since he can't read minds...that most likely won't be happening. I tried to set up an over night at a hotel for our last little getaway before baby comes and he didn't really seem into it. Said he'd rather spend the money on doing something with the kids. Which is like - hello!! I wanted a night away from the kids with just us. I didn't fight it, just felt very sad and dissappointed. THEN he brings up wanting to go to this 3 day conference next weekend out of state. Sooooo....he didn't want to spend money on going out with me alone, but wants to spend even more money going away for 3 days when I'll be 37 weeks pregnant. Great - so yeah that caused a huge fight.

 

It did get resolved but I still feel let down that we probably won't be going out alone together before baby comes :(

Me too, Greenlea! But I've resigned to the fact that that's not something he'll ever do. greensad.gif That's really disappointing. I'm glad it got resolved, but I'm sorry. hug2.gif

I'm sorry some of you mamas are having a hard time with husbands. I'm feeling a little bit like I'm on a roller coaster. Yesterday I was exhausted and crabby and I didn't sleep well last night (DH didn't have to work and slept with me at night and I wake up more when he's in bed with me, plus DD woke me 3 times) but today we went walking around a couple stores and then went out for lunch, which was delicious, then we went to the children's museum. It was SO sweet watching DH and DD play together and we all just had a great time, so I'm hoping to keep this mood going. Good luck to all of you!!!!

I'm emotionally wrecked right now. Major issues with employees at our shop that I really don't want to have to deal with at 40 weeks pregnant. May end up in termination of our most senior employee which while it would resolve the major issue at hand, will create other issues to go along with it. My mom's pipe burst under her house almost two weeks ago (I think I mentioned this already) so we're dealing with trying to get that fixed so she has running water again. The car issues are no closer to being resolved and now today my mom's pony is missing (she got out of the yard this morning and took off when she was trying to ger back in the yard.) And, we realized that we haven't seen one of our cats since Wednesday night. She usually hides upstairs in the girls room so it's not uncommon for me not to see her very often but dh hasn't seen her either which is more strange. To make matters worse, she's about a year old but only weighs about 3#'s so we haven't gotten her fixed yet because she's so small. She's also solid black and managed to loose her collar last week so yeah, we're probably screwed. gloomy.gif

I am 39 weeks and and 3 days. I have been having cramping, inner leg shooting pains, some bh contractions for a couple weeks now. My midwife checked me last Wed and my cervix is very thin and baby is very low in position. The last couple days I am peeing and pooping constantly and always feel the pressure like I need to go again right after I already have. Today I have a bad side ache cramp kinda like menstrual kinda like a running cramp on my right side, (which is also where I have been feeling the most movement from baby) It radiates down and around a little. I think my body is warming up and I might end up with an early Easter baby. 

 

My last baby was 5 days late,I was not having any of these symptoms and he finally came after days of long hikes with my water breaking with a gush shortly after going to bed, contractions fallowed immediately and increased fast with labor only being 5 hours. Now I can barely walk across my house let alone think about a hike. So though this is my third baby it is very different symptoms and I am having a hard time judging if I am in labor. 

What do ya'll think?

Tiffany-


so sorry about all you are dealing with try to let as much of it fall into someone elses lap as you can. Harder said than done as I am trying to offload a lot of issues with our family and focus on baby.....

I had a similar fight with DH around 28 weeks. I wanted to take DD on a fun trip just her and I while DH was out of town. Just a hangout in a different city, but mostly play in the pool with DD and watch movies type of thing. He wanted to know why I couldn't just go to the pool we have here. We haven't gone on any non-working or non-out-of-state-wedding related vacations since our honeymoon and never with DD. I was so bummed. It would have cost 2 nights in an Americinn and gas money. I really wanted to go and have it be a bonding trip for DD and I before she has a sibling and I was so bummed. Finally he said we could go and I was like, "Thanks DAD! for "letting" us go." We ended up not going greensad.gif.

This whole weekend has sucked. Today espicially. My Easter has sucked so far. I am so upset, and not one person has asked me why. DDs dad and her papaw brought home breakfast and they didn't ask me if I wanted to come downstairs and eat. I only know because I heard them talking about it. Also, my neice ad nephews are visiting this weekened. Their other grandmother called and asked me to make sure they were ready, she was osn the wayvto pick thwm up. Go downstairs to tell their grandmother, and she just throws her hand in my face and tells me to shut up. So I said f**k it and came back to my room.

Firespirit, I hope things get better! :hugs

I had an AWFUL HORRIBLE night. Seriously, I hope this was an isolated incident of a night because if it repeats itself, I might... I don't know... cry or scream or something. My hips hurt so bad, my sciatica was on fire, my tailbone was hurting. I was cramping like I was going to have diarrhea, so I got up and sat on the toilet and sitting there made my sciatica worse. I didn't end up with diarrhea, just gas that FELT like something was going to come out. So I tried to go back to bed, and then had to drag myself to the bathroom every time I had to fart because I didn't know if it was just gas... TMI... sorry!

 

I didn't sleep much. I am hoping to take a nap today and HOPEFULLY feel better.

 

Does anyone here know if tylenol PM is okay to take?

post #93 of 245
I am offcially done, enotionally. Physically I am definitely ready to give birth but even at my most painful points I feel like a wimp if I complain considering how severe it all was during my LAST pregnancy an I have avoided reaching that point this time. But emotionally....yeah. Been having a crying breakdown every day. Feel huge and ugly. Uncomfortable. This is the 6th baby I have been pg with in just 24 months and I just want it OUT of my untrustworthy body so I can hold him/her!!! And even though I am not "concerned" about having to birth another large baby, it weighs on my mind CONSTANTLY and I feel like each time I eat something not perfectly healthy, I have doomed myself to another lb of birthweigt or another inch of head or whatever... It is just getting old.

Oh and I SO want to be able to enjoy sex wth my hubby again. greensad.gif

That sucks! I flat out told DH today that if his grandmother (the queen of saying rude stupid things to me, especially when pregnant) says anything more than hi I will just walk away from her to keep from clawing her face off. So far I have been able to avoid her, but even her voice made me want to leave the room.

This is how my night of sleep was too! I had been feeling so positive even with sensing that I will start having a lot of prodromal labor for a while but this morning I was thinking that if lastnite wasn't a fluke my attitude could go down hill real fast! I don't do well on no or crappy sleep. It's hard enough during the newborn phase.

yeahthat.gif And I totally am getting to the ugly phase too. When I looked in the mirror when brushing my teeth lastnite my eyes were so puffy for no apparent reason other than that I am that pregnant. Blech!

Oh man, I am feeling birthy now. I chuckle thinking about how I felt earlier this week and last. That wasn't birthy. This feeling is!

I woke up from a huge sleep "O" this afternoon and have been cramping and contracting since an hour or two afterwards. Lots of bathroom visits and restless energy combined with the need to nap as much as I am able.

Currently visiting the in-laws and don't think this would be a bad place to have the baby. My MIL offered us their place to birth when we visited at Christmas, but my two older kids are out of town right now and the airport where they return is 3.5 hours away. :-)

We will figure this all out, if need be. Feeling excited and peaceful. Expecting that this is prodromal but still researching local hospitals since it is a wee bit early and my birth kit is at home!

Thanks, BaileyB. Heading home today, going to work on my lingering fears,and we will see what happens.

I have massages today (doula) and tomorrow (with my acupuncture session) and my older kids to pick up at the airport. With all of that sorted, I hope I will go. 37w on Wednesday so anytime is good by me.

I keep changing my mind on feeling done and ready and not ready at all. Yesterday after having pressure and cramps all day I was just done. Ready to have  the baby. Then I was laying in bed thinking, not sleeping, and I realized I have a TON of stuff to do still - what am I thinking wanting baby to come right now? I have yet to get my NB stuff or cloth dipers out of my Dad's attic, still need to organize and find room for baby clothes, still need 3 new carseats so we can drive all 3 kids around, take my boys to Build-A-Bear, etc. My plan is to work on all this during the week so hopefully on Saturday, at 37 weeks, I'll be ready for baby and start doing my natural induction stuff.

Weird things of the now..

 

I'm sitting here with my feet up not expecting much of anything to happen today (or soon) and suddenly some of the movements from the baby are hitting near my cervix area and HURTING. I had a noticeable movement a bit ago but just now it hurt so bad I literally jumped up and walked around the house. I also went and quickly put my contacts in and a minimal application of makeup just in case. =P

 

Now I'm sitting back down and my stomach is noticeably more sore and I have weird cramps. I also can feel that I have gas so that is likely the culprit.  But, man did those couple of pokes hurt bad. 

 

Oh when will this little one come?
