I think I've sprung a leak. - Page 15

Ugh. I am kind of glad that you didn't have the baby. I'm rooting for your HB, but I'm sorry you went through all that. I hope your uterus calms down so you can get some rest.

Wow, I bet those docs just cant figure out what to make of you
I know this is emotionally draining for you - I wish there were something we could do to help. I would love for you to walk out of there still preggers at 35.5 but I don't want you to have to endure ctxs until then - at least not like the ones you've been having. Lots & lots of mama. Thanks for keeping us in the know. Did you get to research GBS any?

Yep!!! mamma, you're doing awesome! I know this is a letdown---but look on the bright side, every day your lo stays inside, the more mature and healthy she will be. I feel so sorry that you can't get any sleep. Would they let you take a hot relaxing bath? What about birth ball and knees? (draping your arms and head over the birth ball, in the H&K position) Maybe sitting backwards on a chair, with a pillow to rest your head on?

About GBS+: Since you now have some time, since you're not dilated, you can start some home GBS remedies.
-Raw garlic: have DH bring a bulb of raw garlic and some olive oil. Then peel a clove of garlic, cut it in quarters, dip each piece in some olive oil, and swallow the four pieces. Do this 3x a day.
-Take 1000-2000 mg. of vitamin C 3x a day
-Take Echinacea, 2 capsules 3x a day
-Have DH go to the health food store and buy some Sambucol—it’s elderberry syrup and is an AWESOME immune booster. I think the dosage is 2 tsp. 3x a day.

I hope this helps, and that you are getting some rest---hang in there mamma, your baby is thanking you for all you are doing!

and lots of HUGS!!!

I'm wondering if there's anyway you could maybe sleep on your belly? Like with a massage pillow in yoga childs pose or something like that?

Lots of hugs and love heading your way!!! I hope you get some much-needed (and very much deserved!!!) rest soon!

Have they done a GBS test recently? Since you can test positive one day and negative another, have you considered asking to be re-tested?

You are such an amazing, inspiriing mama!
