I can NOT do this anymore girls. I have blisters all over the front of my stomach from my stretchmarks itching so bad and me not being able to find any relief for it. I have tried cocoa butter, dermasil, cortisone (which my doctor told me to put on it), vitamin E oil, EVERYTHING. Because my pelvis is too small for Ava's head to engage properly she won't stay still and the pain of her weight shifting from different areas of my stomach HURTS. Last night I had pains in my clit from her smacking my bladder so hard. I can't sleep because she is going back up high and the acid reflux is murder. I take Maalox and milk and still NO relief. I was up all last night pissing my brains out and gagging from the acid reflux. The burning is brutal.
My feet are so swollen that they have turned purple and I have a pins and needle like feeling in them. My hands are swelled as well. The tightening of it irritates me so much.
I can NOT do this anymore. I'm swollen, have blisters on my stomach, pains in my pelvis and clit, I am peeing non-stop, and Ava just will NOT stay still. I called into my doc's today but he isn't in the office today and the receptionist said he can't call me until Monday until about 2ish. What the FUCK am I supposed to do until then? I am so miserable and nothing is giving me relief. I have been in a panic attack all day today because the thought of going through another 3 1/2 weeks of this upsets me so much.
I am hoping my doctor will be willing to take Ava maybe at 37 weeks. My physical and mental state is going to hell.
oooiiii did you try the E45 cream like i said last time for the stretchmarks/blisters?? I was in the same position but they have all gone down now thanks to the E45, nothing perfumed will help and oil wont either, the skin needs proper moisture. And only wear cotton clothing on ur bump.
i know its hard hun! but your ALMOST there! if you can handle it till monday until you speak with your doctor ... talk to him about what you want .. the c section earlier.
but if you dont get that .. your almost there and your doing such a great job!! i know its hard to think that youll have to endure the pain your going through a few more weeks .. but itll be C section day before you know it!
seems like youve tried everything so i dont really know what else to tell you about the pain of the stretch marks or anything. but i hope you feel better and relax .. try not to stress yoursefl out to much .. its not good for Ava.
just try your best to relax .. if you need to chat im here for ya!
i really feel for you sweetpea. Your poor tummy sounds so sore, and i know what you mean about all the shifting and wee-ing, and discomfort and feeling sick etc etc.
I dont mean to sound mean but knowing you're going through it too helps me - if that makes sense - so rest assured that I'm feeling like double crap too - I feel as though she's taken up residence where my lungs used to live and my stomach is shoved up my nose and I just feel/taste sick all of the time. I hope that knowing I'm getting it too, and feel dreadful and dont know how I'm going to get through the rest of this - helps you feel better too? At least we know its normal and we arent going through it all alone.
Sending you enormous hugs poppet. Here - have a flower
Oh sweetie sounds miserable! I would definately stop using all soaps/bodywash/creams that are scented/fragranced (like the coca butter etc!) And like someone else suggested - E45 cream.... it's fab!!
Can you call an oncall midwife or Dr to discuss things?? I can completely sympathise with the acid reflux. I started getting it on Saturday last week and (sat, sun, mon i got a total of 10 hrs sleep) Things that have helped me are - not eating after 7:30pm at night not drinking anything but milk after about 6pm, and nothing to drink at all after 8:30pm. Trying to avoid oil and greese in foods, and only eating a half portion of my dinner. Then about half an hour before bed i take a large dose of gaviscon. It's stopped the acid reflux which was causing me to vomit a few times in the night, and mega burning and hot pain on my chest, neck and face.
I hope things get better. PM me if you want to have a chat
