Oh Blu! Why are you on bed rest? I'm sorry, that sounds pretty awful. Hope it goes by quickly for you. Guess you'll get lots of reading done. I'd be knitting, watching lots of movies, reading, crafting, surfing the net... I'm already bored as it is being off work, so I can't imagine not being able to go for walks or get out of the house here and there for errands. I feel for you!
Woken up today feeling totally rubbish. Mild diahhrea (been 3 times today which is unlike me) and mild stomach cramps. They are very mild though, just giving me a feeling of not being quite right I went back to sleep and woke up about an hour ago but not much different, still feel 'off'!! Drinking lots of water etc..
wondering if its a stomach type bug from what ive eaten (ive not had much appetite the whole pregnancy but was visiting friends yesterday and probably ate more junk than I usually would) or perhaps the baby starting to move down into position? Ive had the odd back ache for weeks this morning it was a little stronger but didnt last very long!
kellyc could be something you ate, or could be baby putting pressure elsewhere, could be early labor. Good luck to you.
Not a thing going on here. Feeling like this baby will never come! I have some cleaning and whatnot to do around here but not much really. Christmas shoppping is finally done! Exciting! And on Friday I will decorate the house! Hooray! Hoping once it's all done baby will decide to come! I have yet another OB appt tomorrow so I'm dreading the news that nothing is happening, but I fully expect that news.
Are any of you ladies noticing watery discharge?? I have been very dry all through the pregnancy but noticed an increase in the white milky discharge over the last couple of weeks. I have just noticed I am feeling more damp over the last couple of days. I have been using the EPO internally for a week or so and noticed that the last couple of nights when I have put it in its very watery in there? Sorry if TMI but I have kind of kept an eye on it today and have checked with clean finger when have gone to the loo and definitely clear and watery up there? I felt a funny little twang almost like an elastic band somewhere up there when I was having a pee on saturday night. Almost expected my waters to gush there and then or have a show but nothing? I can't remember whether this dampness started before or after this.
There is not enough coming out to soak a panty liner so am not convinced its waters?
Anyone similar?? I really don't want to call the L&D
Im feeling some better now, still having to take the pain medications, but not as often. The hubby got all the trim put up yesterday, so he will caulk it tonight and do the touch up paint. My sister and mom are gonna help me decorate the nursery and then for christmas too. I put the pack and play and bouncer together yesterday too...I finally feel like we're getting ready. According to the doctor, they may induce at 38 weeks- which is only a week and a half...Scary! How's everyone else doing today?
toothfairy - I'm having this too for the last few weeks. It changes color too and has been slightly brown/ pink a few times. I had discharge in the 1st tri but 2nd tri was dry. I asked my dr and she said "it's normal". I was thinking my water was starting to break or something.
I'm doing ok today. She must have grown a lot in the past week because my belly is tight all the time now and i feel body parts when I touch my stomach all the time now eek. I still can't figure out what is what though. We picked a ped! and we're getting our carseat inspected on Wednesday. Xmas shopping partially completed... Stuff is getting done!
Glad you are doing well ladies. KellyC, hope you feel better!
Just got back from my dr. appt and baby is doing fine. She said all the cramping, and painful contractions I have been having are a good sign and hopefully means I won't be going overdue. On our way out, she said, "Who knows? You could be having a Thanksgiving baby!" Seriously!?! That would be awesome. I can't wait to meet our little boy!
Yep discharge at this stage is normal.
I had my 38week appointment today, bump is still slightly small for growing at a steady rate so doctor wasnt worried. She said I had slight protein, blood and white cells in my urine which apparently is normal at this stage-does that sound right?
No appointment now until 41weeks so really hoping I wont need another at all, i keep getting strong braxton hicks so maybe it means I wont end up waiting too much longer.
Ohh we have also decided to go with a different girls name now to what we origionally picked. Baby is now going to be kiera if its a girlie which I love.
I've been having some painful and really frequent contractions since my dr. appt today. Trying not to get my hopes up but it feels like it could lead to something soon..... Ahhh the mind games! It could still be four weeks away! I think I might start timing them soon if it doesn't fade away. Been approximately 3-5 mins apart but only lasting about 30-40 seconds. Painful but not anything like the real thing I'm sure. Just mild pain, I can still talk through them, etc.... Such a tease!!! Hope this isn't what the next three weeks are like.
