Well I managed to drag myself out of bed in just enough time to get there late lol , they were closing up that office for that day so I ended up being the last person there . Anyway I told the nurse about all the cramping ect I had been having and she said oh , you have a UTI to which I was gonna say oh no I don't , but I had to pee in a cup either way o I went ahead and did a clean catch for her

Then got all the other good stuff done , BP fine , I am at 147 lbs now ( gained 30 so far ) FHR was good and all that , my midwife came in and I got my group B done , and since I was all exposed already and had such cramping she went ahead nd checked me real quick , she said "well your about 1 1/2 cm's dilated so those cramps did something !" , she sounded so pleased that I didn't have the heart to tell her I have been 1 1/2 cm's since 28 weeks

Then off we go to the bank and then home , I had some mild cramps from the exam but nothing bad at all , then about halfway home I start feeling like I am going to throw up , by the time we get home I am ready to jump out of the car still rolling or not because I just feel awful ! So we go inside and I take me and lil boy's coats and shoes off and go right to bed , hubby puts a movie on in there for lil boy to watch so if I fall asleep at least he's shut up in the same room with me lol , then he's off to work . That was 1:30 and I just got up about 30 mins ago .

Oh so not the uneventful pregnancy I had before lol , worth it ? Yes ! Am I still enjoying it ? Yes ! I just hope I start feeling a lil better and get at least a lil rested before I go into labor is all !

So I go back next Thursday and then every week till something happens !

Well, I'm glad it was mostly uneventful. I'm glad you got some rest. Hopefully things will ease up on you.

I wish there was someone to watch him for a day lol , I only feel comfortable with hubbies grandma watching him right now but she's a bit older so I know it's hard on her to keep up with a 3 year old , plus she's gonna be watching him most likely when I do go into labor so I don't want to wear her out before then either lol .

But ya , I don't want baby to come till Jan , I am not ready , my parents aren't ready to come up yet and of course every day counts for baking babies lol .

Lol , we have been somewhat fallowing the same lead huh ? Mine were just like AF cramps , way down low in the back and going down into my thighs and around to my tummy some , and youch ! But no nausea . I wouldn't be too surprised if I go right before my due date though , I did go into labor with my lil boy 6 days before his due date , but just watch I'll go over with this one lol .

I'm glad the appointment went well! I'm right there with you with the cramping. One thing I also noticed that I don't remember with ds is there a lot of pressure on my pelvis, like in the bones and ligaments, y/k?

i know what you mean but i have had that with all 3...so it isn't alarming me, it may just be more stretching going on for you.
