I'm still feeling pretty decent, most of the time... but I can't get into a comfortable position to sleep. Saturday night, I had some contractions that were painful enough that not only did I wake up but I woke up Mike with my miseries.
It was a bummer, because I was working extra hard not to make a lot of noise (we were at the IL's house). He was very sweet and did a massage.. I really needed the counter-pressure on my lower back. I think NewBean has settled head down, but she's definately OP. My tailbone *kills* whenever I have a contraction.
Lots of contractions here, definately not doing anything though. No, I can't feel my cervix, I just have a feeling that NewBean is nowhere near to coming out. Like I mentioned on last week's thread, Mike is totally against doing anything that might precipitate an early birth. On one hand, I totally know where he's coming from but on the other, I think "easy for you to say, you can sleep at night/don't have heartburn/aren't in pain/don't have sciatica/etc, etc and so forth." :LOL I told him that his refusal could definately been seen as somewhat selfish, and he said "Don't worry, I know I'll feel the pain too." Hell yes he will! :LOL
Insomnia. Gotta love it.
: I'm only in a few states these days: asleep, wanting to sleep, unable to sleep. It seems like that's about it.
LizD: I can totally relate to your concern about the GBS. I don't know what my colonization level was like with Eli, though I figure it was fairly high because a)my water did break early and b)he actually got sick. I worry about the same thing happening to NewBean, and it's totally freaky to me.
I don't even know what to think about it. From what I understand, I probably won't even be tested this time, just treated. Hopefully NewBean is healthy and strong.
Hm. It's late, I'm exhausted and unable to sleep, and contracting.. I guess I should take a shower and go to bed. :LOL I love taking showers at night, because I don't have to take them with Eli. :LOL
T: Did everyone notice that the old rolleyes smiley is back? Hooray for Cynthia!
I didn't much care for the new one.
