Aggh, I have no idea, but aggh!
More contractions - gonna be my daily thing I think from now on... In fact now that I say that I'm having another one... Peed myself today when I sneezed - I've mostly avoided that by grabbing myself when I peed, but I was changing a diaper and my legs were spread too wide apparently.
Hubby and I had a date today to the movie - Pacific Rim. It was really loud and I started getting worried about the baby because she wasn't moving. I shook her awake and she finally got going a little. She's been moving more later, but it got me thinking about what would happen if there WAS a problem... I don't even know if my midwives will induce a VBAC...
Banana, I was going to say poison ivy too, but it could totally be a bite. Are you putting anything on it?
Crafty, It sounds like you had a really great Blessing and have a lot of supportive friends! That's a blessing in and of itself!
Carmen, I think the parents and the children end up having the last say about nicknames. My DS is Barnabas and so many people try and shorten it to Barney. So far only two little girls (big girls to him) have succeeded. (And I think they have a special case as they are they coolest girls in the universe to him and they could probably call him "Llama Breath" and he would respond.) But to everyone else who has called him Barney he just gives them a kind of funny look and then says something like, "Oh, no... did you not hear? I said that my name is Bar-na-bas." (And he kind of sounds it out for them like they are just learning to speak English).
Woke up at 3 AM and couldn't shake the worry that Julia hasn't moved enough... Got up, shook her, waited... By 4 I was really getting anxious and drank an OJ. Had some very gentle movements but nothing much. Called the after hours service at 4:30 and went ahead and drank a soda since I clearly wasn't getting back to sleep. Had maybe 1-2 strong movements and a few more gentle ones... No call back. Called the service again at 5:30... She's moving a bit more now, but still all the movements are SUPER gentle - like what you normally have at around 22 weeks.
DH will be up probably by 6:30 and I think if I don't get a call back by then, I'm just going to go in. I've never been this worried during any of my prior pregnancies and I just NEED to get on the monitor and see that she's ok. :(
Everything ok. Of course she performed like crazy on the monitors! Stinkin kid is gonna give me so much gray hair!! Just another monthish... I could not be more ready. DH and I were like foolish kids last night thinking about snuggling a newborn (of course that got all too real this morning when my anxiety got the better of me and then all my brain could focus on was the NICU across the hall).
Banana - I got poison ivy a couple of years ago and I still have no clue how. It was awful.It also started out similar to yours and then a few days later i got really bad. I ended up on prednisone, antibiotics, and a steroid cream. So it's possible that's what is even if you don' know how you were exposed. And it clears up so it won't be all pregnancy! Hopefully it won't be as bad as mine got, but there were remedies for that too, even if they weren't "natural". One thing I have heard good things about it is an over the counter ointment called Technu, you can find it at most pharmacies, but make sure it is safe for pregnancies.
Calladonna and Edelweiss - so glad you are both home and babies are doing great.
Me - I have had so many people lately tell me there is no way I am making it to my due date. Everyone at church is predicting an early baby because I look sooooo pregnant already and are surprised when I tell them I have another month to go! We went blueberry picking on Friday, and one of the ladies that worked there didn't want me to go to far into the orchard "in case we need to call someone for you"....really? My back hurts but at 34+ weeks I want this kid to cook for another month at least!
banana, it slightly resembles bites to me but not completely. Hopefully it doesn't spread. Do you ever have allergic reactions to any food/soap/etc?
calladonna, so happy to hear everything is ok. I went through that a few weeks again and ended up in L&D for my first ever NST. Literally 5 minutes into the test the little stinker started kicking and moving so much the little belt things were hopping.
Thanks for the feedback on the name. My DP says the same thing but I know a lot of people who go by Michael (for example) with their family and Mike with everyone else in the world. I guess we would just have to be consistent.
Btw, my braxton hicks are starting to get a bit closer to early contractions...only a few today but definitely different than usual. I'd like baby to wait until at least after 37 - preferably after 38 - weeks!
