I've been eating lots of vitamin-c, drinking tons of water and sucking on throat lozenges. I actually slept fairly decent last night as well. I think I may be making some progress. Voice is returning slightly too!!! Ohh sweet heavens I am so happy I may be finally kicking what ever I had. I'm glad I made it through with out any tylenol or anything like that.
Have just been to the hospital and had a scan and Leo is still transverse, so I am being admitted today to the maternity ward for the next 2 weeks (unless he comes sooner) as apparently it would be quite risky for me to go into labour or have my waters break without being in hospital as he can't be born vaginally whilst he is transverse - c section only!!! OMG OMG PANIC!!!
So basically I will be in there 2 weeks all being well with some steriod injections to help Leo's lungs... a lot of sitting around and boredom I suspect, however, whatever is best for him.
Leo now weighs in at 6lb 10 and is still measuring a couple of weeks ahead on growth so all is well in that respect at least!
As for me, I feel off - just not quite normal, I still have a sore throat and some congestion, been having nausea on and off, and I've been having quite a few BH again. DH and I both have a feeling that delivery day is fast approaching.
I have more bloods and fetal monitoring tomorrow.
Ahhhhhhhh! Crazy! You better write me now that you have all ths free time PB! Have you been doing inversions PB? I'm still spending 10 minutes a day on my face just to try to keep things "favorable".
So happy Leo is still big and healthy. I'm sure hes going to come out in great shape.
So excited to hear what happens for you pixie! I'm sure that being sick is throwing you off though. It always puts a monkey wrench in things. Make sure to keep up with your fluids! I'm not sick and I'm drinking 15-20 pints of water a day. Crazy, huh?!
We are totally ready other than me being sick. The nursery is complete and the bags are packed, we're just waiting on them at this point! The only thing we still need to get around to doing is putting together a will, which isn't necessary to do before they're born, it'll just be hard to accomplish when toting around 2 newborns.
Pb - hope all goes well for you!!! So exciting to know Leo is coming soon!!! You will be in my prayers & hope he flips for you so you don't end up with a c section. Ditto what sass said - you'll have some free time now so keep us posted please!!!
