I just got back from my OB/Prenatal appt. going to be 31 weeks tomorrow. well at my appt on January 10 I had gained 6 lbs in two weeks...back today for another appt and have gained another 7lbs in two weeks. my doctor seems a bit worried and told me to start walking. Told him when I do spend a good amount of time on my feet or walking I start spotting. He told me to walk . Feeling confused and would also like to know if there are any effect to excessive weight gain? Thanks any help/advice is appreciated! Tuesday 18th: This what ended me in labor and delivery afternoon started out as irregular unpainful bh no pink discharge/spotting. around 6pm bh became regular and very painful couldnt focus and hurt so bad they made me cry. 4 bm's not my norm at all. racing heart-high bp and couldnt catch my breath. Went into L&D and was told it was probably because I was dehydrated they gave me two VE and said I wasnt dilated but cervix was very soft monitored me for 3 hours and gave me 2L of IV fluids. Discharge instructions are pelvic rest, no caffeine, increase fluid intake, stay off my feet and to call back if I have 6 contractions/hr.
