34 Weeks and Signs of Labor

Dec 01, 2008 - 0 comments

I am 34 weeks preggo today. I feel like there is so very little time left now before the baby gets here. I had a nesting incident last Saturday night. I was up vacuuming and cleaning at midnight. The whole top of my house is clean (DD and baby room, bathroom, living, dining, and kitchen), now just for the bottom level (our room, our bathroom, family room, office, and laundry room).

My BH contractions are coming alot more lately. Something odd that happened this weekend was a contraction (or at least I think that is what it was) Sunday morning that was so intense that it took my breath away, put me on my knees, and I cried out it hurt so bad. It was just the one. It happened while I was unloading and loading the dishwasher. I went and sat down in the living room with a heating pad on my back for a while after that. None others like that have occured.

I have noticed an increase in cervical discharge, to the point that when I pee, I have to wipe 2-3 times everytime I pee. Speaking of urination, I can pee every 15-20 minutes or at leat I get the urge to that often but only a tablespoon or two comes out. I actually look forward to night time peeing because, even though I get up at least twice to pee, I can usually pee longer than a second or two. Sad but true. On the plus side, the cervical discharge is just clear and very stringy. I don't think we've lost the mucus plug yet, but it may not be too far off.

While I'm getting it all out there, might as well point out that pelvic rest stinks. I have this unbelievable urge to rearrange furniture and such, but can't because I'm not supposed to lift things over 5 lbs. I have been in organization mode too. Everything must be put away nice and neat throughout the house, not just the baby's room. I have even gone through and cleaned and organized my 10 year old DD room. At least I'm not on bed rest.
