I went and had my glusoce test the other day...but I didn't drink the glucola, I did 2 hour post-prandial. Funny thing was, as I waddled in to sit in the chair, the guy drawing blood says "Wow, you look like you're gonna pop out a baby any day now!" I said "Nope, not until June!" He says "Oh, it's gonna ba a BIG baby then."
: Where did he get his degree.
But of course, the funnier part was when he said "So, is this your first?" I said "No, 8th." Blank stare, dead silence......He looked at me like he didn't hear me correctly...."8th??? Number 8, like after 7?"
: Talk about some comic relief!
Erin, my back has been sore, mostly muscular, off and on.....today though, I woke up and could barely walk. I have been going to the chiropractor 3x a week for the last 6 or 7 weeks. The other pain I typically get, nerve pain, mostly sciatic, has been non-exsistent. My headaches/migraines have pretty much vanished as well. I am planning on getting adjusted until the very end.
Lizlark, welcome to the group! I am sorry you are feeling stressed, but it realy is part of motherhood. Being completely responsible for another life is a huge responsibility, but the fact that you are concerned shows that you want only the best for your baby.
Also, the weekend before last, I started freaking out a little, because my baby wasn't moving as much as normal. For about 2 days, it seemed like minimal movement. But then it picked up full force...I guess little crush was just tired for a few days.
to you!!!!! I will be thinking of you and sending you "no labor yet" vibes! I hope your uterus stays calm and your baby stays put until it's time.
Speaking of time......all but one of my babies have come after my "due date", and all were in different condintions at birth.
#1 was 3 weeks late (yeah, 18 years ago, they did evn talk about inducing until 44 weeks) and she was long, skinny, dry and peeling. no vernix, no lanugo 7lb 13oz.
#2 was 1 week late, and she was plump, no vernix or lanugo 9lb 9oz.
# 3 was induced 3 days early because of my lack of weight gain (total of 3 pounds entire pregnancy-I weighed 127 when I got pregnant, 130 the day he was born). He also had no vernix, no lanugo and weighed 7lb 7oz.
#4 was 3 or 4 days late, but the placenta had started to calcify, and his skull sutures were starting to also, so his head didn't mold well when he was born. no vernix or lanugo, 10lb 4 oz.
#5 was 6 days late, smeared in vernix, I mean TONS, (we called her cheese-head for the longest time!) and weighed 9lb 11oz
#6 was 2 days late, tons of vernix, lots of lanugo 10lbs 7 oz.
#7 was 5 days late, heavy vernix, no lanugo, 9lb 2 oz.
Well, that's my ramble for the day! :LOL I hope to be on more frequently!
