I'm 35 weeks and started having contractions a week ago! It started when I got dehydrated (drink your water, ladies). And after I saw my midwife, she put me on a daily regimen of protein shakes and all kinds of supplements. After a few days of that, I was still having spurts of contractions here and there, so my midwife officially put me on bedrest, which is not something she normally does.
I want this baby to be born at home, but the baby has another agenda. If she won't stay put until after Christmas, I'll have to deliver in a hospital with "preemie" status. I DON'T want that! They'll separate me from her, try to give her formula, etc...
It's so hard to stay put with a toddler needing you all the time. My mom is coming to stay with me this week to help. I don't know what I'd do without her!
Keeping my legs crossed until after Christmas,
