Mommies to be check in
Posted 11 June 2009 - 10:22 PM
Well I had my appointment yesterday. They actually had me come in early cuz I wasnt feeling good. They did the stress test AGAIN. They do it every week. She is at the point she doesnt like to be tested anymore. She moves away from the monitor. Oh my little princess. Well doc didnt like that her heart rate wasnt getting up so he zapped her. Let me tell you that really pissed her off.
Then they took blood to make sure my white count was ok and my sugars are ok. Thought maybe that was why i didnt feel good. But it all came back okay.
Then he checked me to see if I was dilating. He said I was only at a one. But to me at least it something. When I got home I was bledding a little and later that night I lost my plug. I never did that with my daughter so that was new for me. So I guess we will see what happens from here.
As far as the strollers...I have the one that comes with the car seat and an umbrella stroller. Hubby wants the jeep stroller to take her out in the woods, but Im not a big fan of that right now.
I dont get the leg craps I get the reastless legs. It makes me crazy. It feels like the creepy crawlies...
Hope everyone is doing good.

Mrs Martin- I used to get leg cramps soooo bad! Not fun at all, I'd do the same thing to FI. Do you drink much soda? My doctor told me that soda can cause them, I don't drink a lot of it at all but he also suggested drinking more milk. So I started drinking a lot more milk and rarely get them now. Also, sleeping on your back can cause them too but I doubt at this point you can lay on your back...I definitely haven't been able to for quite awhile now!
Are any of you at all concerned with all the guests that will be stopping by with this now pandemic they've declared? They've got some pretty bad outbreaks of it fairly close to where I live so I'm a little bit concerned...Would it be horribly rude of me, when the time does come, to post a note on my door asking anyone with any possible symptoms to come back? I probably sound like a crazy lady, but our public health nurse was pretty stern in prenatal class to even ask people with the common cold not to come..How do you not sound like a bag/crazy lady when it comes to something like that?

Kelly- Thanks for the input, that makes me feel a lot better! I live in a small town and I know we're going to have probably every person we've ever waved at either stopping by or else smothering us when we're out in public, so I'm really quite nervous.

Kelly- This may sound like a stupid question considering I'm a few weeks away from having a baby and I should know this by now, but what does the plug look like? Is it obvious when it falls out? I also heard some women lose it gradually, not all at once. Is that true? I know what it is, I'm just not sure I would be able to identify it considering you tend to discharge a lot when pregnant.

I've tried many position and she isn't budging. I'm kinda just giving up on turning her because she's getting bigger as the weeks go by and my doc told me there is really only a 10% chance she will turn. So I may just settle with the c-section on the 29th.
