Hi girls
My sciatica kicked in over the past week so I'm pretty much in agony right now! Unfortunately I can't rest much 'cos I have a b&b and we have guests most days this month! My OH gives me a hand when he's home at lunch but otherwise I'm doing what I can at the speed I can!
I had a routine monitor check with the gyno on Thursday and there's nothing happening yet - no contractions! I'm back to be monitored again on the 19th, a couple of days before my due date to see if there's any progress.

Momofadane - good luck on Tuesday, let us know what they say!

xxxx

What was the reason for the fingers in the mouth thing Nela!?!?!? That sounds strange!

Sorry for those suffering with pelvic pain or sciatica, it sucks doesnt it. My mum had the same pelvic pain that I have had for the last 6 months and the only good thing is that she said it went within a couple of days of giving birth.....I cant wait!!!

Aaack yeah the sciatica sucks. Really kicked in for me as well, plus the SPD. Omg, my pelvis cracks soooo bad! Makes me wonder if that's how I will sound when I'm going to be an old lady I hope it eases up for you some soon So you run a B&B huh? That's cool! Unfortunately, I guess you don't get to rest too much these days! I hope you are having nice guests staying at least!

I had some false labor yesterday Holy crap that had me hurrying up to finish up my hospital bag and OH hurrying up to install the ISOfix It calmed down after a couple of hours though and that was that so we went back to our original plans of running to IKEA to grab a few things. Sure made me wonder if I'd know when to call OH home if it happens again though

We have an appointment scheduled for the 19th as well so I think the 19th will be a big day for both of us, huh J22? Hihi. We will set an induction date then if baby hasn't come this week. The OBGYN has decided they aren't comfy with me going much past my due date so it's either he comes on his own this week or getting an eviction notice apparently. Not quite what I wanted to hear but I know they've already allowed me to get to 40 in the hopes I could go naturally as they would prefer that. J22, is there a particular reason why they already need to monitor you for contractions? Are they planning on inducing you as well if you reach 40 weeks? Just trying to understand what situation you are in, as I've never been monitored for contractions and find it interesting! They don't do internals here either so I have no idea if my body is doing anything other than giving me false signs

Hey Fluffystar! I think it was just to check the width of my mouth? I think it has to do with a possible emergency and needing to be intubated... I guess my mouth isn't very wide so my teeth risk getting broken for them to intubate? I didn't really understand. It was something the anesthesiologist had to warn me about as a 'possible occurrence' but she was hopeful and happier knowing that I was getting the epidural so that cut down the risk of needing general anesthesia. (I'm quite at risk of having a c-section so we're preparing for that, just in case, but hoping for a smooth vaginal delivery)

SPD definitely sucks. Are you doing anything for it? I haven't bothered with it, personally. I just feel it's part of the deal and rest when I can since I don't work and already have that luxury of being able to stop when absolutely needed. It is nice to know that it should pass quickly after having the baby. I was actually wondering about that. Makes sense of course, but I wasn't sure how quickly muscles might bounce back, etc. How are you feeling aside from that?

The monitoring for contrations and fetal movement is just routine here in Spain, they do it for everyone from around 37-38 weeks x
