Totally normal on the menstrual type cramps. I have been having those since week 33 and I swear some days AF is coming. It has been so bad the last few days I have ran to the bathroom to "check" just like with AF. But its more of the clear watery discharge.

Thanks, MommaB! I'm hopeful they'll at least improve the quality of her life for whatever time she has left. I just want her to be comfortable. She was my first "baby" and I'm really attached.

And that's exactly what I'm experiencing with these menstrual-like cramps... Glad to know I'm not the only one!! And I guess 33 weeks seems to be spot on with when you start feeling it... I was terrified it was the onset of real contractions, and I am SO not ready for that yet!

Our appointment went good Ela looks and sounds great, I grew 3cm in fundal height but measure perfect for 36 weeks! They did the gbs swab, not bad at all, but said they don't do cervical checks till 39 weeks unless they suspect something is wrong or think I'm in labor...that kinda sucks, I am too impatient I wanna know lol Oh well, she will be here before we know it I had a ton of mid size contractions while being monitored then one massive one that threw the reading off the chart and holy cow it brought back labor pain memories!!!

Glad to know all is well with Ms. Ela Can't believe they won't do cervical checks until 39 weeks though! She could be here by then.

Mrs, I am so sorry about your dog. I'm super attached to mine and I know I would be crying buckets of tears in your position. I hope they can help your furbaby. I'm so glad your boss had some compassion and let you go home.

I also had a MW appt today. I've gained more weight I guess this is what happens when you start indulging in fall treats like a pumpkin scone ( halfsies with my BFF), pumpkin spice kisses, candy corn, apple crisp. Ugh. It's all so yummy! I want to make pumpkin bread too! And I probably will. The MW measured me and said I'm measuring right on for fundal height but didn't announce the number. A friend is dying to know the size of the baby so I asked if she could tell and she guessed 5.5-6 lbs. that is really disturbing after all the weight I have gained, but I would rather she not be 9lbs! I told her about my failed cervix check. That I couldn't even reach it. So she agrees with me. That I'm not even close to going into labor. It will probably be 41 weeks + for me. She asked me to get an exercise ball to sit and bounce on. She also suggested evening primrose oil capsules, and sage essential oil to put into almond oil to rub on my tummy. She also suggested anise but whole foods didn't have it. I will probably order some online. The oils were to help trigger contractions. I guess that's about it. Back next week.
