38 weeks tomorrow!

Jun 18, 2012 - 1 comments

I'll be 38 weeks tomorrow. Had my ultrasound Friday and she said all was fine and baby is about 6lbs. I can't wait to not be pregnant anymore. My patience is running quite thin. I'm working still. I have 15 hours this week but my back has been hurting a lot so I'm not sure how well it's going to go this week standing for 5 hours at a time. Especially when I get lots of BH contractions while at work.
I started taking EPO the other day and drinking raspberry leaf tea as the ultrasound lady said that she couldn't see any dilation on my scan. That let me down a bit but I know how quick it can change.
She is in the exact same position that Brady was in, must be how comfy my uterus is! lol
I'm hoping I don't go late this time. I really just want this pregnancy to be over. It's getting exhausting and hard to move and chasing/ taking care of Brady is getting VERY difficult!
I want my body back!

Heather...I hear ya! The last few days before having my baby I broke down out of frustration...I was so drained that I didn't even get hungry throughout the day I was just so tired to even think of eating!
I also drank the raspberry leaf tea, and I was taking very hot baths as well. My doctor at my second last appointment didn't check if I was dilating but he said baby can come on the weekend and if not he would check on my next appointment...well I did have the baby on the Sunday before my next appointment and I was only 2 cm dilated and I was told my baby would to be Born on that Sunday but boy were they so damn wrong. I became fully dilated within 1 hour...and my daughter was almost born in the car. It was a painful, emotional day but anything is possible, you can dilate quick without even knowing. Sometimes I rather not listen to these stupid doctors, it seems sometimes they just don't have the right answer to give you and they just make you worried or depressed for nothing...think positive and be strong.
