You are welcome!!! I just think it's a shame when family tries to be a downer during this wonderful time for us!! I hope you get to enjoy at least some time away!!! We finally got news about TS Karen, we're up in Alaska so we don't get news that far away until it gets really serious! I don't blame you guys for going back early. If you guys are driving maybe you can just take your time driving back home, take some nice detours?
That's wonderful you felt hiccups! It's such a lovely feeling!!
Just checking in! How is everyone? I'm good but LO is breech. We still have plenty of time, but I thought I might share with you. I was listening to Beethoven and she started moving towards the music, so now I have the music playing low in my lap. I'm hoping this gets her in the right position. Hope everyone is good and Merry Christmas!!!
I hope baby turns soon! From my baby apps it says there is still room for them to twist and turn so maybe she will just be a late turner! Baby boy has been head down at every visit, always has his face snuggled into my hip bone (same place DD always was at ultrasounds too!) Must be a cozy spot! I am glad to see you are doing well though!! I will have to try the Beethoven. DD loves to blow raspberries on my belly which gets her little brother bouncing around like crazy, it's so funny.
I am doing okay, I am 1.5cm dilated but my last scan showed that my cervix went from 2.4 to 2.6cm! I am going weekly now since DD was a preemie and I was admitted at 32 weeks with her. As I get closer to that date with this pregnancy, I feel as though I am walking on egg shells. They had me on bed rest for a few weeks but since that didn't lessen my contractions at all she said it's not worth the stress of me being on bed rest with a toddler so now I just have to take it easy. I only have 4 more weeks of progesterone injections as well, I am hoping those do their job and I won't dilate much more until I am done with those and closer to full term! *fingers crossed!* I can't believe we are this close to meeting our LO's!!!
I had a strange feeling today. It felt like LO is squirming around under my ribs. Anyone else felt this? It was almost as strange as being able to identify a body part rolling across my belly. Oh, and I almost forgot. LO will be transverse while I sleep, head down early in the day, and breech later until bed. She moves around a lot, and in this rotating pattern.
animekoneko, I have not felt that! However, little man is riding so low (since 29 weeks when he dropped) so I don't think I'll get any rib action! Kind of happy about that, he's a big boy and I really don't want any kicks to the ribs! That's so funny that she moves around like that!
as of yesterday I am 2cm and 70% effaced.
I wasn't happy with that but the midwife said she is happy (since I was 6cm and already admitted with DD at this point) and she already expects me to deliver early but I'm really hoping to make it to 36 weeks at least!!!
I can't believe we are all so close to meeting our LO's!
The craziness of going from a family with a toddler to a family with a toddler and a baby will soon begin!!!
