Starting a new thread for our Fall Mamas! Part 8!
Starting a new thread for our Fall Mamas! Part 8!
And b/c our other one got closed right as I responded, here is my post!
@Audreysdance: Think calming thoughts! Hopefully your BP is low and fluid levels look good so they don’t have to induce…but remember that if they do, it’s ok! I keep thinking of you and sending lots of labor dust!
@WinterWhite2012: I totally agree!
@carriejuly: I have to laugh, b/c my irrational husband hasn’t touched me in months b/c of how worried he was that we were going to lose this baby if we did anything. Now that I’m full term, I don’t think anything is changing!
@Jenn23: Holy Braxton Hicks last night! I went for my NST after I visited with my SIL, and I was having a contraction pretty much every 5 minutes while hooked up to the monitors. His heartrate was great through all of them, but I knew I was hooked up way too long for them not to be worried. I was on for a good hour and the nurse finally came back in to tell me I was ok to go. She had called the doctor b/c of how many contractions I was having and was waiting for him to call back. He was totally fine with it, so I just got to see his heartrate for a little longer last night, that’s all!
@lotam240: Thanks for checking in! Hope you’re doing well too!
Other than the crazy contractions last night, everything is going well here. My poor SIL is either in pain, or she’s getting sick from the pain medication they’re giving her. They’re going to try to put a stent in today to help her pass the larger stone, but I can’t even imagine the amount of pain she must be in from this! Hopefully things start to look up for her!
I’m 37 weeks officially today! So full term! I honestly can’t believe we’ve made it this far! Only 3 more weeks until my EDD. I have my weekly tomorrow where I’ll get the results of my Strep B test. I’ll also ask about if they’ll let me go past my due date or not. We’ll see!
@2PeasinaPod: thanks love! Congrats on full term and all the BH! perhaps you will go a bit early!!!
I can’t believe i made it to the next thread. Never thought i would. oh well. I want my baby. I feel like he is gonna be the size of a truck driver when i finally get to birth him.
I think this needs to be moved to Pregnancy section.
@Audreysdance: Thinking of you today. When do you go in and see the doctor? How are you feeling today? How are the cramps? Any new signs of labor? Hang in there!!
@2PeasinaPod: Did they say last night what that means to have so many BH? I’m glad everything is fine and congrats on full term. YAY!!!!
@Audreysdance: Woops! Thanks! I totally don’t even know which category I put this in! And, my grandmother always said that 2s and 8s were lucky! So thread #8 is your thread!
@Jenn23: They said it’s normal! And as long as I’m not cramping, they aren’t “real” labor contractions. They also said that since I’m so small, the NST picks up every little thing on me, so it’s picking up every itty bitty contraction I’m having.
On another note, my friend who is due 10 days before me just went to the hospital from her doctor’s appointment b/c her BP was high. They’re going to monitor her and possibly induce tonight! She’s freaking out! I told her she was due in 10 days anyway, that she’s just a little early )
@2PeasinaPod: Yay, full term!
@Audreysdance: Good luck today!
Last night we did the hospital tour, so now I feel like we’ve done everything to prepare. It was good for DH too to see the room and setup and all of that. The baby seriously had a dance party in the middle of the night last night. Moves I have never felt so pronounced before, it was crazy and went on for at least 10 minutes. I woke up this morning only to noticed that I dropped a ton. I guess she was moving herself down?
@2PeasinaPod: That’s good to know they weren’t “real” contractions. Yay! Wow, your friend may be having her baby tonight! Wow! Hope everything goes well for her and the little one.
@hopefulmama: What did you think of Paoli Maternity? I love it. The rooms are huge and private and I love the little kitchen area where you can go anytime and get juice, snacks, etc. My baby had a dance party during the early morning hours while I was trying to sleep, too! He keeps me up a lot now at night. But I still love it.
@Jenn23: No, I think they show us the mega suite lol. Maybe if I scream really loud when I first get there I can ask for that one Yes, I have heard the same things. Not that I am necessarily “looking forward” to being there and the birth itself, but I think it will be a good experience. I think it will be funny if I go early and we are there at the same times
So, can everyone say a little prayer for my SIL and her LO? She’s going into surgery at 1 to have her kidney stone crushed and a stent placed. Just praying that the baby does ok with all of this going on.
@2PeasinaPod: Congrats on being full term! So exciting. Will definitely say prayers for your Sis-in-law and her LO. So not fun – kidney stones while pregnant are miserable.
@hopefulmama: So cool that you have noticably dropped and you felt her working her way down there.
No big changes here. It’s been 9 days since I lost my mucus plug, and I try not to worry since I’ll only be 35 weeks tomorrow. My doctors told me not to worry since I’m past 32 weeks and that it’s likely LO won’t need to go to the NICU if she comes now. I’ve been having contractions over the past 2 days and they are getting more intense. They are so far apart that we’re just hanging out. Doctors have told me to prepare for a September baby. DH and I are ready but still holding out hope we make it to 37 weeks.
I got my maternity photos taken and can’t wait to get them back. They were a lot of fun. Glad we got those done before LO makes her debut.
@Audreysdance: Hope all goes well at your appointment! Keep us posted if you can!
@WinterWhite2012: Hoping you make it to 37 weeks as well! If it’s reassuring, my doc told me that once I made it to 34, they can do great outside the womb! So though I know the longer they cook, the better, your LO should be A-OK!
@hopefulmama: Very cool that you’ve felt her drop! I’m looking forward to that. Right now, I can’t talk for a super long period of time without getting winded! This little guy is pushing up on my lungs!
SIL ended up getting into surgery late (they’re never on time with that stuff), so we’re still waiting to hear, but thanks for everyone’s prayers and good thoughts!
@2PeasinaPod: Hope your SIL’s surgery goes well
@WinterWhite2012: Yea it was neat…not at 4 in the morning though haha. Are you dialated at all yet? Or just the mucous plug and minor contractions?
@Audreysdance: Exciting, good luck!
Anyone else getting totally distracted with work? I feel like being at work are the longest hours e.v.e.r. I am having such a hard time concentrating on things too.
