Weekly Chat Aug 9th-18th - Page 4
Is anyone else having sharp cervical pains? It's like a stap to the cervix and then it goes away. Any ideas? This is new to me.
Abk - lots of cervical stabbing going on here, and my oh my, OUCH! It can be pretty intense. My eldest was born with his hand on his face, and I remember these pains being like it and I'm wondering if this little lady is trying something similar. Poking and prodding down there from the inside eeek.
Abk-I've definitely gotten those cervical stabs with all of my kids. I haven't got them too bad this time so far, but they're awful when they do happen!
Holy cow, abk, there have been times where I wonder how there isn't a hand or foot or something hanging out of me (wow that was kind of gross to imagine). In any case, the cervical punches are intense.
I'm 32 weeks today and it is kind of insane to think about how close I am. That's like 6-8 weeks. Actually possibly a little sooner since my doula and I kind of sat down and did some math last night and we're thinking that my due date might be closer to the 6th or 7th rather than the 11th that my LMP indicates. I had been thinking that in the beginning but kind of dropped it from my mind as the weeks rolled by and I got used to saying I was "blank" weeks every friday. When she really wanted to figure out when she needed to start being on call for me and when we should have our last meeting before the birth we thought we should revisit the conversation.
Anyone else just a tad emotional? This morning after another rough night with my little guy and dh sleeping in away from me I'm all tears and didn't want him to go to work, its Saturday, family time, I hate it when he works weekends. Time is far more important to me than money and I just wish he could spend the weekends at home.
Danielle, my kiddo has been doing the same thing, flipping all over the place. It's really stressing me out. :/ Yesterday at my midwife appt, I had a quick ultrasound so she could check my fluid levels, and she mentioned she was finally head down... but sunny side up. This kid! Why can't she just get into position? Agh. My midwife said not to fret yet, but I'm super scared of back labor, so she'd better turn!
How's everyone's weekends going?
Sunday night here, and not many plans this week *happy dance*
I still don't know for sure what position my baby is in, I hope at this week's appointment my doctor can tell me! My guess is that she's head down, but judging by all the kicks and punches I think she's facing front. My weekend was good, but busy. We went up to New Hampshire for my best friend's wedding, I was the maid of honor (yay! :) ) so I stayed very busy, and danced all night. So of course now I'm totally exhausted, but it was so much fun :)
Oh Dahlia im pleased the wedding went well! Time to rest up mumma! Are you still working?
Abk- time to put your feet up for the next few weeks and keep that little man cooking, you'll have to show off your maternity photos when you get them back :-) I just loved seeing all your kids help with your belly cast. almost surreal you'll have a wee boy in your arms in less than a months time!
33 weeks here today. And I wish spring was on the way..... it really feels like winter is going to last forever. Especially as we're out of firewood until this evening. I have been unpacking more and more of the house and upstairs is almost sorted and it feels good, my back though not so much. I have started sleeping in with my eldest as his bed is higher and firmer and seem to be getting better rest in with him.
No, I'm not working currently Danielle, Which is good and bad. It's great to be able to sleep and get the rest that I feel like I need, but a second income would be so nice.
Abk your belly cast turned out so cool! Take it easy mama!
I can't believe how close we're all getting to having our babies!! I'm 33 weeks now which is surreal!
I had a pretty relaxing weekend. DH and I went out for lunch and frozen yogurt on Sat and we even managed a successful session in the bedroom! I had chiro on Sunday and lunch with a girl I used to be best friends with, but that I hadn't seen in years.
The chiro appointment was focused on releasing my round ligaments and the surrounding tight muscles, and it felt better yesterday but I think it's all tightened right back up today. I spend most of last week with serious pain on the right side when walking, and now I'm probably going to have the same thing this week. She's gone on vacation now so I can't see her until over a week from now. Boooo.
My office-mate gave me three bags of baby girl clothes on Friday and there was so much stuff! We won't have to buy any clothes probably until she's nine months old! I'm stoked about that.
I also finally ordered some more cloth diapers and supplies, so once those come I should be all set on the diaper front. I got a carseat a week or two ago as well. I feel like I'm finally getting stuff together. Phew!
This little animal is a mover and a shaker too. He/she flips around regularly but it's generally just from left to right as far as I can tell. I'm find the cervical punches and pressure to be more uncomfortable than the constant moving. Maybe just because I've gotten used to the shifting.
35 weeks now and totally out of the danger zone in terms of preterm labor. Yay for synthetic progesterone gelcaps that go up your lady bits and keep your cervix from ruining your summer! Now I am off the meds and in less than two weeks i am full term! I'm not even going to TRY to take it easy after about another week, maybe even sex everyday in order to go into labor closer to 37 weeks than to 40. My last baby was a 4.2 kg monster and my 34 weeker preemie was 7 pounds so I don't trust that this baby won't be huge despite what the ultrasounds say (normal).
Slammerkin - that was so kind of your office mate, I always love receiving pre loved things makes them a bit ore special. Hope you can get in to see our chiropractor again ASAP!
Ciga - your doula sounds awesome. How are the vitamins going for the insomnia? I just realised that with our move I'd been forgetting to take my iron supplements which just probably why my get up and go, has got up and gone!
Serafina - how awesome you are out of the danger zone!!!! Yay!!! That must be such a huge relief. And gee whizz 4.2kgs! That is one healthy babe. 37wks is perfect timing by the sounds of it. Just days to go!
Pretty shattered here, still unpacking after our move and my boys are tag teaming it with getting sick, first hubby then my eldest got this horrendous cough, then a nasty viral rash and now my youngest has a cough that is making him vomit.... Huge amounts of laundry going on. And not a lot of leaving the house as ds2 is so tired and grumpy and his cough sounds toxic although when seeing the dr he tells us its absolutely fine.
We intend to build our crib this weekend! Get it all ready for baby girl, dh ordered our birthpool this evening, which is a huge weight off as I had been struggling to get in contact with the particular business we rent them from. But sorted now, which I'm super excited about. Anyone else waddling terribly? I'm shocking!
