hope everyone is doing well today.
i need some thoughts and to whine if thats alright.
most of you know that tho i have two beautiful girls, i've never experienced true labor. (water broke with first and they induced. i was 24, it was 1989 and i di dn't know better... and the 2nd induction i was just a stupid FREAK. lol). so anyway i have no idea what "normal" prelabor symptoms are . or what "normal" labor is.
here i am with #3. my last pregnancy as far as we believe and i'm going for the natural birth/vbac. I've been excercising a bit, eating right, reading tons, doign hypnobirthign/relaxation tapes. And i've felt wonderful this whole pregnancy. and considering i'm turning 38 in a few weeks i'm pretty proud of how my body has done so far.
ok. thats the background. the thing is....
i'm so sick all of the sudden!
for the past day and a half i've been incredibly nauseous. I mean, laying down on the floor nauseated. it goes like this. I'm fine running around doing stuff. i feel it hit. I sit down. i rest. i drink. it passes. I'm hungry. i eat. i get up and do stu ff. it hits again.
yesterday i couldn't eat supper i was so sick. so at 9:30pm i was feeling good . and hungry. so i made a bowl of pasta with butter. was scarfing it up like there was no tomorrow. half way thru the bowl it hit again. total nausea - like 'i'm going to be sick' feeling. So i rest. i drink. i wait. it passes. I start feelign good again. i do the dishes. get into bed and go to sleep.
4am i'm up clutchign my stomache again! ate some crackers, walked around the house. drank some water. it passed. went back to bed.
its 8:20am now and i've had a few crackers. i feel good so i'm going to try to get out of here to the post office to send out orders but i'm afraid it'll hit again. OH! and now the sinus stuff has started again too after 3 months of relief from it i'm blowing my nose like theres no tomorrow! i'm freaking 35wks and a few days. i dont NEEEED this.
and the braxton hicks from hell aren't helping either. lol. at least one an hour. very sporadic but quite painful.
so - thats the whine part. i guess what i'm askign is , is this normal to have happen a few weeks before labor. or am i sick? lol
