The baby is still moving although definetly less often and in more spurts..gets really jumpy and then nothing for a few hours. I do have a lot of swelling in my feet/ankles, but I am up and around a lot during the day so it can be expected. However, it is the swelling in my hands that is getting tough. I have developed carpal tunnel in both wrists, so I have lost feeling in all my fingertips. I went to my chiro today and there was nothing much he could do for it other than traction...just need to deliver so the swelling can go down.
Instincts are not telling me there is an emergency yet, but I just am feeling less confident. My 43 week DS was born blue...no idea why he was completely limp and blue... but I think I do still have some "trauma" from that. Everything turned out fine, but it just causes me a bit of concern. My DH checked me, and this baby is still way up...hard for him to even reach the head. My others did not engage until I was in labor, and I wonder if that is why it takes me so long to "get going". Anyone heard of this? I just feel my babies dont lock in and activate things!
Just wish there was a sure fire way without the use of drugs! I think the prodromal labor is starting to get to me...getting emotional and feeling like I am running out of endurance. Tired of putting on the happy face
