Let’s just say it hasn’t been the best week. Terrible cold plus allergies, plus being pregnant= very cranky mom.
Last night I sleep on the couch because I couldn’t get comfy. I had been cramping all day and I swear this little man is going to fall out. I have so much pressure. I am only 21 weeks. Granted this is my 3rd pregnancy. So last night, I try to sleep and no luck. I had been having cramping all night. I don’t think I would have been too worried if it weren’t for the slight spotting at 4:30am this morning.
So I hate bugging my OB, so I wait to call him until around 7am. He says it’s possible that my cervix could be shortening and when I descirbed the (sorry tmi) the watery, blood tinged spotting I had, he wanted to check to make sure the fluid was ok. So now I have to go in for an ultrasound and make sure everything is ok. I am a little worried because I went into pre term labor at 23 weeks with DD#2. Luckily they stopped it and even though I had a couple more episodes of it, she stayed in until 37 weeks.
I am cranky, emotional and have lost my mind. I started crying this morning as I was getting out of the car because I couldn’t find my car keys. (They were in my hand!)

Oh Mrskisstobe, I’m so sorry that you’re having a rough time. I’ll be thinking good thoughts for you and baby today.

Well, went and had an ultrasound. Baby looks good. His head is literally right up against the placenta and my cervix. Yay me. They did say that the placenta was a little low and that they will keep an eye on it. She tried to get some good 3D/4D pictures of him but he wouldn’t turn his head. When he finally did turn his head, he put his hand over his face. I tell you, he is a NAUGHTY boy! Both of his hands are up by his head and during the ultrasound, he felt the need to punch my cervix. Thanks buddy.

@mrskisstobe: haha he probably wasnt enjoyed the ultrasound thats why he punched you.. it was probably his way of saying get that thing away from me.

@bells: He is just naughty. I think he finds humor in punching me. He did manage to punch me in the bladder hard enough that I almost peed my pants. Hubby thinks this is hilarious. I can’t wait for his to pee on him when he changes his pants.
Baby is definitely starting to fill out. His cheeks are getting a little fuller than they were on our last scan. It even looks like he has his daddy’s toes.
