Sleep??? What's that????

Mar 19, 2010 - 0 comments

Almost 38 weeks and feeling every minute of it. Sleep has become less and less as I seem to be getting up every half hour or so to pee. I'm sure DH is sooo tired of me rolling out of bed and waddling off to the bathroom 10+ times a night. I know it doesn't help his sleep much either. Every time I finally find a comfortable position, I have to get back up again. I've tracked my sleep for the last week and have managed a whopping 4 hours a night total, though no more than 45 minutes at any stretch.

Pelvic and hip pain is getting worse, as is the sharp pains that go straight down. BH contractions are getting more and more uncomfortable and make it difficult to walk and move around. I try and walk or get outside and play with my son everyday, but lately the weather stinks and it has been raining. Supposed to clear up this afternoon.

Been dragging through the days, seems like I am in a fog with the lack of sleep, but I know my little man will be here soon, just wish the time would go a little quicker. Ever since I hit around 35 weeks, time just drags on and on and on...

OB appointment update

Mar 16, 2010 - 0 comments

Had my 37 week appointment yesterday. I wasn't checked for dilation but baby is doing great. They are sending me for one more ultrasound next Monday (March 22nd) to check his size and my next OB appointment is Wednesday (March 24th) and OB said we will then discuss induction or whatever depending on how big they estimate him to be at that time. I've been having some contractions, usually only a few an hour, though the sharp pains that go straight down are getting more intense. I have been so tired lately that I can barely function, which isn't fair to my 3 1/2 year old, but I know it will be over soon and his baby brother will be here. Not much else going on except for the back aches and the nausea and vomiting that has come back.

Update on OB appointment...I am having a monster boy! :)

So, after my terrible appointment with my midwife last week, I called my OB and told her what happened. She was NOT happy at all!! She schedule me an appointment for Monday (March 1st) and I also went in for my final :( ultrasound that day. The baby looks GREAT!!! He is squirming around as much as he can and my fluid levels and everything is good. The only thing is....I think I'm having a monster!!! I know that u/s weights can be WAY off, but at 35 weeks they are estimating him at 7 pounds 2 oz!!! I just can't believe it!!! He's HUGE!!! I don't go back until the 15th, which should put me at 37 weeks...not sure if OB is going to do an internal exam or not, still might be a little early, but the u/s tech and the other doctor I saw did comment on the contractions I was having. I get one or two "Good" contractions an hour, and the rest and very mild, so no worry about going just yet. Only 31 more days until my due date!!!!!!


OB appointment update

Feb 05, 2010 - 2 comments

I had an appointment yesterday at 31w5d. Everything looks good, heart rate was 158 bpm and my little man is moving a LOT. :) I am measuring (by exam not u/s) at 33 weeks, but I have measured 1.5 weeks ahead for awhile now. OB scheduled a presentation scan for February 25th since he is still transverse and she wants a better look at his position. I also have the other ultrasound on March 1st, so I get to see my little boy at least two more times before delivery. :) Blood pressure was 102/88 and I gained 1.5 pounds since my last visit, putting me up to a total of 11.5 pounds. My 1 hour glucose test came back normal, so I don't have to go for the 3 hour one. My next appointment isn't until the 25th (when they do the presentation scan) because OB wanted to do both at the same time. So, I have about 3 weeks :( but all is well, and that's what matters.
