Hang in there with the NICU situation, I know it can be really hard, just be sure to talk through your feeling with people, such as your spouse or a nurse because there is a unique rollercoaster of emotions when you can't be with your baby like "everyone else."
Congrats to those of you who've had your babies! Doctor is going to start checking me for dilation next week.. kinda wierd, but I'm like excited for that! lol. I was having fairly frequent BHs before, but haven't noticed any in the past few days. Not sure why? .. Nevermind. Just had a couple now. lol.
I've been lucky on the stretch marks.. Got just a few faint ones underneath my breasts. But baby managed to pop a bunch of my veins when he was getting heads down. For some reason as he was turning he was pushing his head outwards instead of downwards so super tight across my stomach for about a week while he was transverse, then he finally went down and, thank god, now seems right in posistion!
Maybe just me but I seriously have no intentions on avoiding bikinis after this. In my mind it's like I don't pick on dudes for having scars that they got doing dumb stuff like falling off their bike or stapling their hand so why the hell should anybody pick on me cuz of marks I got doing important stuff like makin babies? I'm gonna wear whatever and still think I look hot and anybody who don't like it can go stuff it! lol.
Have you tried bio-oil? I think that stuff might actually help a little bit.
