So, I didn't get my Father's Day/Brother's bday baby, but it's ok, this LO will come when it wants right?!
I had a horrible contraction this morning followed by literally constant cramping, I called the doc, because I really couldn't tell what was going on, if I was contracting, etc. They squeezed me in and the doc checked me. Last week I was between a 2 and 3, she says now I am a solid 3. SHe said, it's a good sign that I have progressed every week. I am still 50% effaced, baby's hb was 138, I gained a lb, which is ok, because I hadn't gained at my last appt. All of my vitals were good, of course the cramping and everything had stopped by the time I was seen...Murphy's Law right
My doc, as she was leaving, said, I don't like to say this because you can never tell, but I really think you will go before I need to see you next week, that's good, because my next appt isn't until next Friday and I don't think I can handle going that much longer! I came home and poured hot sauce on my lunch, ran up and down the steps, have done some laundry, bounced on my ball, trying to think of what else I can do...lol!
My due date is 2 days away, please let this baby come by or on that day!! UGH!
Progress is awesome..
Things that have/haven't worked for me:
Spicy foods has thrown me in twice. (indian both times)..
Sex doesn't do it for me. I honestly think a man came up with that one.
Stairs and more walking usually get me going.
Dehydration will bring them on, I'm not recommending it until you are really desperate. (I didn't realize this one and stupid me was craving coffee one day and I figured why not. 2 ice coffees later, I was in the maternity wing)..
Katrina, mom to 7 wonderful children on earth, and 4 guardian angels in heaven.
I been wondering about you!!!!
I'm glad to hear that things are progressing
I hope that the spicy food and all the running up and down the stairs bring labor on.
Do you have someone that can update us?
