I'm also glad you went to the ER Iesha!!! I hope you're on the road to better now!
Doc went fine. . .
Insulin at night before bed starting tomorrow after I see the diabetic nurse. Staying on my oral meds that I'm taking now as well. Lost another pound. NST's twice a week starting next Monday and another ultrasound in 2 weeks. She also gave me phenegren for nausea to take on top of zofran if needed, she wants me to try and eat a bit more. I'm 34 weeks tomorrow. One day at a time!
Kellie you have a lot going on girl. I too have another Dr apt on mon. Looks like we are on sink together for our apt LOL. Hope the insulin helps you out.
Hey starting 36 weeks don't weekly apt's start? I am wondering if I will still be getting u/s at every apt or not. I don't think I would need them every week. Plus the Dr did say that we would continue every two weeks. So maybe I will have a normal OB apt. Wow I am actually kinda excited about that. It would be nice to feel normal.
I have been practising my hypnobirthing, well as much as I can with four monsters running around. They suggest to start practising with BH, and I have been with the ones that cause a bit more discomfort, it works. So far I like this!!
I think my OB starts weekly at 35 weeks. they already have the rest of my appts scheduled and I start every week throughout February. I should have another u/s around 32 weeks and no more til birth day unless there is something wrong. the last 3 I have had weekly u/s at the end. 1 for low lying placenta and 2 for low amniotic fluid. hoping this one is fine!
edit- just looked at my scheduled appts and I have one at 34 weeks, next is a week and half later since we decided to switch to Mondays from Thursdays. so it probably would have started weekly at 34 weeks
Melissa before I was refusing that I getting close, but I am starting to come along with the idea that I am truly am close. I ok with this too. I just finished reading my hypnobirthing book. I am hoping that you have an non eventful pg, they are much more enjoyable!!
Yah I am starting to think that 1 week apt don't start for a couple more weeks.
Oh I could breath last night. It wasn't perfect but I could breath. Though my LO movements are waking me up. Though I am glad I am finished with those meds. I was peeing four times at least. Now that I am done I only wake up maybe twice tops! That is with me drinking water all through the night. (my throat is dry stupid cold)
sacha- im thinking of looking up a hypnobirthing book. I have some Lamaze ones im reading now. they have spent so much time talking about preparing for the labor im bored with it. I guess they aren't written for someone who has already had a few kids and knows what to expect in labor and just wants the techniques lol. you don't think they start weekly for a couple weeks?? you are already 35! if they started at 37 wks for me I probably wouldn't be seen for 2 weeks before labor even started lol. maybe my history is why my ob is starting me at 34 wks idk. I pee 4 times a night normally!!! I would love to only wake twice. as long as I keep falling back to sleep easily after im ok. yay for breathing !!!!
Melissa I think you would love the hypnobirthing. For us moms that have done before seem to have it in our heads that there has to be a better way…. am I wrong? IDK maybe it was just me. But I was sure that it just didn't need to hurt or feel the way it did. So yah I am pretty excited about trying a more relaxed approach.
Char they are scheduling you for a C-section? I thought you would be able to try natural birth… I am confused. I sure hope you don't have to go through one. I know you mentioned wanting a Vbac
char- if you have to have a cesarean I hope it goes smooth. if I had to have one I think I would want to know the date as much in advance as possible, so at least its good to know when it will be. I think they gave my SIL a date and said if she went on her own before that they would let her try for a vbac.
sacha- I had epidural for 4 of them and that's my preferred choice. my first and last were without. last one was not of my own choice, he came too fast to get one. I would like one again and will be getting one if there is time. since last labor was 45 minutes, I need to be prepared to go without again just in case. I looked at my library for hypnobirth materials (books/videos) and there is none!!!!! we got a Lamaze video, which I did use for my first. was kinda hoping for more than one technique but I guess this is what im stuck with
