The midwife told me that I could start getting up a little bit more each day so I can get back to a normal life next week. So I have started doing a few things and I am finding it a bit difficult. I have to get muscles used to being active again. Not long now.

I'm going to be starting to do that at 36 weeks as well after months of rest. I'm really looking forward to it!

This morning I woke up with bad sharp cramps across my belly... tried ignoring them with distractions like TV and internet lol but failed. Took a bath and they disappeared almost as soon as I stepped foot in the water. It's like magic! I love baths! Lol!

How's everyone doing today?

Nothing really new to report here. Still getting the odd cramp but doesn't lead to anything.

Nope just a few more days.. although hubby took me out to the grocery store today! I rode one of the little sit and ride buggies so we could get a few things... feeling fine but glad to be back home.. that's a lot when all you're used to is sitting down/laying down!

Yes it is incredible how fast you can lose muscle. I didn't do a lot the other day but it feels like running a marathon. Today I have done a bit less and I had a nap in the afternoon. I woke up after my 3 year old daughter!

I am getting to feel some contractions. At the minute the ones I feel are not regular yet but we will see how things go. I have a feeling it won't be very long now. I am also feeling as if things are moving down there.

I have been having contractions every 5-7 minutes for the last week and a half. We went in to l&d because little girl was so quiet all day, and wouldn't move no matter what I did, and that is incredibly unusual.. it really scared me.. anyway I told them I'm still having contractions and the nurse kind of blew me off saying everyone thinks they are having contractions but they aren't... well once she put the monitor on me she was like oh wow you are having contractions they were 5-6 minutes apart so of course they wanted to check my cervix which hasn't changed since last time they checked me 10 days ago, still a fingertip dilated and soft and forward cervix! So I'm going to go ahead and get off bed rest now, but still take it easy!!
