I am now 1 week 6 days away from delivery, and I had THE dream last night. Hannah squeezed her cord, and before I could get on the table for the c section, she died. I remember looking up NILMDTS and asking the nurses to call. I even took an outfit to the hospital for her s/b pictures.

I can't tell you how real this dream was. Do I have any reason to believe that this WILL actually happen? No. But do I think I have more of a chance of THIS happening than my happy ending? Yep. I have been up since about 2 trying to shake it off.

Now I have a 12 hour day at work, but I feel feverish, anxious, and really down.

The stupid OB I saw this week really didn't help. She had some small decels on her NST, and when I asked about them, he said "When a baby's going to be born vaginally, we worry more about the decels because the baby can push down on the cord as it comes out. But you're a c section. I'm not worried".
Then he told me to use hydrocortizone for my yeast infection.

I haven't been this worked up in weeks

I am so sorry... I remember nightmares when it was getting close to delivery time for Zach and Abbi, they were realistic and terrifying. I already have nightmares about this little guy. It is really hard not to let the fear take over. I would call your dr and just at least voice your concern to the nurse and your doctor about the decels, you have every right to be on edge. *Hugs*

Hugs Heather. I am 10 days from my due date and while most of the time I feel ok (just getting impatient), I definitely have my moments. Luckily, I never remember my dreams or I am sure I would be having some doozies.

Well, last year I didn't have any bad dreams prior to Eric's birth. So, maybe your having a bad dream is an indication that everything will go well? It also could be just your daily emotions, feelings and uncertainty playing out in your dreams. You know until we have them here with us it's hard to beleive in a good ending.
I'm not too far behind you and definately in the same boat emotionally.

I agree with Helen. Dreams like that are the release of all the emotions you don't let yourself feel during the day. I had dreams like that every night from 38w (the night in my pregnancy when Cora died) to the night before Patrick was born (we induced 39w3d). It was the main reason I asked to be induced. (With Erin we induced at 38w on the dot, so I never got past that "point" though I had several nightmares about her through the pregnancy too).

They're so hard to shake.

((Hugs)) I'm sure everything will be alright and in less than 2 weeks you'll be holding your baby girl in your arms.

Dreams are your mind's way of working out your emotions and your daily life experiences. I know it's hard, but you have to believe me that it won't actually affect you and Hannah.

(((hugs)))

Wait? Did you type that your doc told you to use hydrocortisone for a yeast infection? I thought that could make it worse? Did he confirm a YI? Or maybe he thinks it is bacterial vaginitis?

No. He never even swabbed me!! 5 weeks in a row of them and positive slides, and he looks and says No,doesn't look like it, and tells me to use hydro.

I have been walking around with vagisil wipes in between my legs, which really do help. I am so angry at that dr, and fully intend to ***** at someone when I go back.
