OMG I'm so sorry you are so sick!! That sounds like torture.
I am totally anxious to find out from my MW tomorrow whether I've dilated recently or not. I have been having these bouts of contractions like you wouldn't believe. I've been trying to figure out how to check my own cervix, after reading helpful threads here on MDC. I've never really been able to reach it though, just the lip of it, otherwise it's felt like it's facing backwards. Two nights ago, after an hour of sudden contractions 3 mins. apart, I tried checking again just for the heck of it, & now I swear I can easily find my cervix, put 2 fingers right in it & wiggle them around!! It's all very confusing.
Early this morning I contracted harder (SO painful!) than I ever have, *exactly* every 10 mins., lasting 1 min., for 90mins. I was freaking out, then they tapered off. Isn't that weird?! I had a trillion BH cx with both my previous pregnancies, but not at all like this! I just don't get it....
My dd was born at 35 weeks but was very ill which is always why I thought she came early, my son was born right on time at 40 weeks. I don't know why this baby would come early, but I just can't imagine my body keeping up this level of intense contractions for another entire 6 weeks! It's all weird & confusing.
ANYWAY, I'm sorry for using your thread as my venting place!
I'm sending your baby "Stay in!" telepathic messages right now!! At LEAST until you are feeling human again & not like a blob of grody viruses.
