still here

Feb 17, 2011 - 10 comments

ok so ive been off line as i couldnt log on but all sorted...still no baby altho tons of signs...this morning i had a huge mucus plug with my normal show that ive been getting on/off for some weeks so fingers crossed. Having said that DH is four hours away working so i shouldnt go into labour until tonight/tommorrow for that reason but you know sods law etc...just my luck LOL
i plucked up the courage to visit a friend rather than have her come to me...i felt soooo uncomfortable there just physically that i wish id stayed at home and bounced on my ball...this feeling is so strong to stay at home im wondering if its subconcious that my body knows sort of that birth is imminent and that i need the familiarity of home to comfort maybe...who knows....im not overly bothered about eating unlike last week when i couldnt stop eating, and im feeling tired but restless more so...im still feeling like electric shocks in my undercarriage, almost like baby presses on the nerves and then bounces off of them...its quite painful and very wierd...the community around are "are you still here?" etc and sometimes i wish id given a false due date just to keep them pacified, but still half term next week so i wont have to see any of them and hopefully baby will be here before the weekend anyway.

I started losing my plug last week too, but the last few days it's been heavy discharge. I've had timeable contractions too.  3 times in the hospital last week only to be sent home. So, now that I'm 37 weeks, as are you, I'm hoping they would give me something to move things along if they started.... would they?

Usually they won't give you anything to move things along unless you are in active labor which then stalls for instance your water breaks but contractions stop since you only have 24 hours once your water breaks before they say time is up and do csection bc risk of infection.

which really *****!
you'd think theyd take each case individually but if you get days like me they'd help you along abit...i mean how many more nights of discomfort do i have to put up with? they reccommend that i conserve all my energy for labour as after ill need every ounce looking after baby but to be exhausted now ive not had baby but generally had uncomfortavle long bouts of contractions well i have to go with that :(
stupid people i bet it was a guy that made that rule!

That's what I'm hoping is that my water breaks so I know for sure and things will keep moving along, and if not they can help me.  Hopefully it's not too much longer now for us!
