FTM issues

I don't know how you ladies manage to get online much. Between Lucas, dr visits, family issues (grandmother had a stroke and my brother is trying to steal power of attorney from me to get her money),...

Re: Today is not the day to be working late dear...

I was in the same boat this morning. Lucas would sleep for a couple of minutes and then he was up. I tried the swing, bouncer, stroller, microwave vent, holding him, cosleeping, feeding....nothing...

Re: How's breastfeeding going??

So glad this post exists to make me feel better. From the breast feeding class we went to in February, they make it sound like breastfeeding is natural and easy. Put the baby to the breast and they...

Re: Evil hour

Lucas is either 1am-4am or 7pm-11pm. I swear he has a sensor under my mattress that zaps him any time I crawl back into bed. Some of the 1am nights I just end up crying.

Sorry for the long absence

Hey all. 2 weeks ago yesterday, I had my baby boy, Lucas, by c-section after my inducement didn't progress. It's been a crazy 2 weeks and I haven't been to the board at all. I've been adjusting to...

Re: checked in

What a night. By 3am I was still 1cm, although at least shortening. So the next dose was put in. I got a dose of codeine for the increased contractions. It zonked me out. 1 hour later I woke up to...

Re: checked in

Going to be hard to sleep tonight. It's almost 2 hours in on cervical ripening and I'm getting contractions every 2-5 minutes low in the pelvis. The nurse is guessing I'll be more dilated when she...

I'm settled in for the night at l&d. After a failed attempt at the IV, I almost passed out from the 2nd attempt. Whoops. The cervical ripened was placed about 20 minutes ago. So now I'm just waiting...

Re: last appointment

The waiting is so nerve racking. I have no idea what's coming. I always wanted to be a mom but suddenly I'm terrified.

Re: Sad stuff

It's 9am here. I've been up for hours after sleeping on and off all night. I dreamt last night that at my appt later today, they're going to tell me I dilated a bunch and admit me. I don't think I'm...

Re: Sad stuff

My hips and back have had it. I've slept poorly for a few nights from utter discomfort and anxiety of the impending induction. I'm so tired. My Friday excitement has worn off to nerves over labor,...

Re: Will I know for sure?

I'm clueless too. Sometimes I get cramps and sour stomach, but I wonder if it's contractions or not. Some are hard to tell because the diarrhea that some contractions cause makes the crampiness stick...

Re: Meant to ask this the other day...lost weight?

I lost weight a couple of weeks ago and then this past week gained 6lbs in 6 days. My doctor looked at my legs and said "I think we know this is water weight from swelling."

I don't think the...

Re: cervical checks?

Mine did one earlier in the 3rd trimester(30-32 weeks?), then not again until I was having a lot of pelvic pain at 35.5 weeks. Then I got checked again at 36 weeks, 37 weeks, and I will be checked...

Re: Anyone else?

Re: Middle back pain that is getting worse :(

My back and sides are just starting to feel like the muscles are stretched to the max and ripping.

Just be careful trying to stretch out.
