39 weeksMamamaya- I'll be thinking of you and sending you baby-love! Please let us know how it goes!!
Last night I thought I was in labor and frantically got all my things ready for the hospital. Turns out the contractions subsided, but I feel a lot more prepared now!
I saw my mw today and she told me that those lovely contractions last night did not change my cervix at all and the baby is still very high. Additionally, my initial BP reading when I arrived was 160/100 and I am now on bedrest.... At first I was looking forward to being 'forced to rest,' but I am just feeling uncomfortable and impatient now. My sides are aching from laying on them all day and night, I am tired, but can't sleep, my pubic bone is killing me and I generally just feel like a beached whale. I am having a hard time not having ANY control over my situation... kwim???
The good thing is that I have some great support. My husband is home for the rest of the week and has done almost everything and today one of my best friends (and my doula!!) came by with ice cream from one of those places that kneads the toppings into it. I had coffee ice cream with Reeces pb cups and cc cookie dough. Then at the end of the day she brough her chiropractor boyfriend over to adjust me on my couch! My mom offered to bring me dinner from Whole Foods, but my hubby and son were already making homemade pizza.
I hope you all have a good week.
