contractions and bloody show

Oct 15, 2011 - 5 comments

been having contractions since around 8pm last night... i think they are early labor ones not quite false ones because they didnt die down while i slept... they kept me up from 3am until 6 30am....  they are pretty spaced out soon so it could be a while... I am just waiting.. been having loads of bloody show today... it just keeps coming!

Nesting - this must be.

Oct 06, 2011 - 1 comments

This has to be nesting for sure.. The last two days have been non-stop for me.  I have been off work for a while and have no other kids.. I really dont have to do anything in particular on any given day....

The last two days, I have just had so much energy to get thing done..

Yesterday - Cleaned out the fridge (not just getting rid of things, scrubbing out the whole thing, taking out the drawers, getting all the cracks), washed all the clothes and put them all away (which I usually always leave one basket to put away a couple days later - dont know why.)  This was 4 loads of laundry (which im not even sure how since i did laundry last week too), straightened the bathroom since i just cleaned it, swept the hallway and main enterance way, and then I decided i was done for the day.. But sure enough, 30 minutes later, I found myself making shortbread cookies and banana bread.. So now not only am I baking but I making two different things at the same time???? I did all those dishes right away too

Then today, I get up at 7am at my own choosing and start doing the last of the couple dishes from the day before... then I go knit for a while, taking it a bit easy but then I head to the store... and I go grocery shopping.. I get back around 12pm, and was literally in the kitchen until 4pm.. I made split pea soup, lasagna, fish chowder, and home made tea biscuits....  The lasagna and split pea soup is to freeze for the future...  But on top of it through out this time, I was stopping to wash dishes and tidy up the kitchen.. You would hardly even know that I cooked 3 full meals in there today.. I really wanted to bake carrot muffins as well but I had to stop myself because it was getting a bit much...

If this isnt nesting then I dont know what it is.. there are still some things i want to do before the baby come such as mop the kitchen and clean the downstairs bathroom (we hardly use it so its never been a priority recently but it needs to be done).... So I mean i have things i really want to see get done but for some reason, I have this uncontrollable urge to cook all day.

38 week OB appointment

Oct 04, 2011 - 3 comments

Had my 38 week appointment...  Doctor did a check still only 3 Cm (she said 80% effaced)....  She said she did a membrane sweep to see if she could stir things up a bit but I heard those were uncomfortable and it really didnt seem any different than a normal cervix check...  she did swoosh around in there a bit so who knows.. we will see...

Baby still ridiculously low..... and engaged..

Heartbeat was 155.... Still weighing 124....

Lets see if I make it to my 39 week appointment.

Tuesday - Sept 27 - checked at 7 30pm - 1 cm 75 effaced..

Continued to have contractions and then some show the next day (or spotting from my exam? but it was streaky red blood in mucous so could be a combo)

Wednesday - Sept 28 - checked again at 7 30pm... - 3 CM 90% effaced.

So I progressed!  They had me walk around for 2 hours after the check to see if I would get my last Cm.. We chose not to go with another check though because my contractions did not pick up, they actually slowed at that point and my body was soooo exhausted, I needed rest

I managed to sleep last night...  Contractions are slow this am but soon ill get to walking.. .Could today be the day...

this is a long process but I was relieved to have progress as I was terrified that all that I was going through was for nothing.  

Baby is at  0 station
