Still here and still pregnant, sigh. Oh the day I have had! We headed down to Kelowna a little before 10am and didn't get back home until 8pm, argh. Had a NST at 1pm and an u/s at 4. Still having bleeding...it had tappered off but I had two vag. exams today so I am sure that's why. I am about 2 fingers dilated, even after 2 hrs of contx. 8 mins apart so I finally decided to go home (I wasn't in the hospital all that time, just for the procedures). My midwife and I both weren't sure if I should head home (over an hour away) but when my cervix hadn't changed at all we figured it would be OK. The procedures were just to assure us that the bleeding wasn't to do with the placenta or anything, and really just to ease our minds, esp. with the distance. Oakley's weight est. from the u/s was 9lbs...it will be curious to see how close it is, of course I know they are notoriously off but it will still be neat to see because he should be born within a matter of days (although at this point I am feeling like I gonna make it to Nov.
). This is really driving me crazy! I felt so intune with my body when I was in labor with Ember and this time I feel like I my body is playing head games with me!?!? I am sure there is some kind of lesson to be learned by it all but common! So how many days can this really go on for (don't answer that, LOL...I know I shouldn't complain because people like Katie have contended with so much more than I have so far, which only makes me in even more awe)
Mandi and Meli-
...I am sorry that you are each having a difficult time with things. I hope things do improve really soon. Mandi I do think it is possilbe for you to overcome this and enjoy nursing yet...Meli you will find something that works for you too, and I really believe that Willow can feel your limits and will adjust accordingly (KWIM? hard to explain but I think that babies are just so intune with their environment and can pick things up...)
So I better try to get a good nights rest...who knows what tomorrow might bring. Thanks for the well wishes and vibes.
