i just feel like writing a little bit about how im doing and stuff. been a little stressed the past few days because Brittan hasn't been moving/kicking much. but i read its normal to have days like those. im assuming shes getting lots of rest so she can grow. i told the nurse at the doctors office and she didn't seem to care much. the cyst thing is still making me worry even though i know it can be normal for babies in the womb to have cysts in early U/S's but theres always a chance it could be something else. im also starting to regret not getting the amnio, but there was a risk for miscarriage and we dont have a risk for it. i was reading my labor and birth book i got from my doctors office and read alittle about Baxton Hicks and realized that that has been what i feel sometimes at night. i will just be lying in bed all of a sudden my abdomen will get really hard and theres some pressure. i read that its normal not to feel them but some people have pain with them like real contractions. i thought i was one of the lucky ones that wouldn't have to deal with Braxton Hicks bbuts i guess i have been this whole time lol. i hope they wont continue to happen/ get worse before its actually time to give birth. im very nervous about having a premature birth which makes me question whether i should continue to work after 28-30 weeks. i no we could use the extra money for the baby and all that but im on my feet 35 hours a week. 8 hours a day and sometimes without a break(no sitting at all). i told the nurse i have been having some cramps in my legs from working. but again she doesn't seem "worried". maybe i should have asked her more about. but i guess ill just wait until my appointment with my doctor next month. see if i should work less hours or something. i think im just trying to actually have a medical reason for not working so much because DH thinks i need to work more. he gets upset when work sends me home early(if its too slow). its chuck e cheeses. kids are in school during the hours i usually work so it makes sense that they would send people home. and i enjoy having a half day and just to come home. do a load or 2 of laundry, get dinner ready and just spend time with him. i dont think he quite understans how much all this standing affects me. i hope its not causing any problems with the baby. im always worried about IUGR. i dont want her to be tiny! but at my U/S she weighed like 10 ounces which was considered normal. i guess al pregnant women are worry warts like me.. but i just dont want any added stress since this is my first pregnancy. and i dont have anyone to talk to about this stuff except for my boss(she has 2 kids) or one 19 yr old at work which has been present at a few births. my mom hasnt had a baby in almost 21 years! other than that i have no friends except for the people that try to help me out on here.
