Hi Mamas, I hope you all had a good Christmas yesterday for those who were celebrating it (and for those who weren't I hope you had a good day too
It's been a rough couple of days for me. My blood pressure has been insane. It keeps bottoming out on me... I have never had high or low blood pressure, always very stable and normal even through my whole pregnancy with T (which was over 43 weeks long
) and labour and delivery. This time though it goes from being normal to hypotensive very quickly and when it bottoms out I am just flattened. My head won't focus on anything and I feel like utter crap.
Then on Christmas eve day I had that going on plus I was having contractions that were early labourish (as opposed to BHish). I ended up calling my midwife at quarter to 10 on Christmas eve and she came over and checked us out.
My blood pressure was the lowest it had ever been. She checked my cervix, and it's changing from what it was before. I'm starting to dilate, and it's mushy soft. I'm measuring two weeks ahead at this point for fundal height (which explains why I'm feeling huge these days
Basically we wait and see and hope that baby hangs in for a few more weeks. I did this with my son as well, but with bedrest I got to term (and beyond
) It did freak me out though when she was talking about how I just needed to make it to 37 weeks and I could have my beautiful homebirth (which she knows I badly want) and I realized that was only 3.5 weeks away. That's so soon! (Which is a blessing since my body is starting to get ready early, but also a little overwhelming)
Anyway, yesterday was a busy day and today we have more family Christmas to go to. I'm sitting as much as possible and letting others do the work. It's weird for me, but if it means an inside baby then it's worth it
I hope everyone else is well today
