I'm sorry they didn't work, but glad you can eat! Glad they were able to perscribe you something so you don't have to live off of Sprite anymore (been there, done that, not fun!) I hope you enjoyed your pancakes View Thread
I go back on Monday afternoon, 3:40. I'm kind of hoping she comes before then, but if she doesn't, we are going to start talking induction with my OB. I've gotten a little more used to the idea, just took me a few days for it to sink in! View Thread
Thanks for the heads up! I'll start watching them a little more closely then; I just couldn't figure it out and have kind of been on edge since Wednesday! Fingers crossed, maybe something will happen tonight Will keep you posted!View Thread
Ok, this is about the weirdest thing I've come across so far. On Wednesday, I started having contractions every hour, beginning around 6am but then they stopped by 2pm. I know that they were contractions of some kind (probably BHC); starting as pain in the lower back that moved to the front of my abdomen, and they were kind of intense. So...
I haven't really had any more like the ctx I had on Wednesday, but I will occasionally reach up to rub my belly, and it is as hard as a rock! Like I'm having a contraction, but don't feel any pain. Only lasts a short while but it is all tensed up. If I feel anything, it feels more like she's just putting pressure on my cervix or rolling around. But I can't tell!!! I Googled it, and it said that some women who experience this have very fast labor, which worries me a bit.
Great BIG ((HUGS)) Mary. I'm sorry you are having to go through all of this. I can't even imagine dealing with the possibility of surgery while pg. I do, though, understand how it is when the one who is supposed to be your support person seems to be working against you (my DH has been really stressed out with work lately and has been picking fights this week, too). Try to not let Josh's attitude bring you any farther down, and he will come around once he starts feeling better. You are an amazing, strong woman, and I am sending lots of prayers your wayView Thread
Surprisingly, I've gone through a few phases of cravings. After the MS faded, I craved pizza - REAL healthy, I know! lol Then it was egg rolls, then oranges after that. I don't have craving's right now, but MUST have a glass of chocolate milk when I take my prenatal vites each night (more because the smell of the pill grosses me out!)
I did eat a lot of pickles during the holidays, but that's a family trait of mine, not a neccessarily a pregnancy thing! View Thread
I couldn't find them anywhere either, and ended up ordering some off-brand wristbands (Psi Bands) off the internet. Worked just as well, but it took a couple days to actually get them in the mail. I never tried the MS suckers / candies from Babies R Us, but the wrist bands helped me immensely! Good luck, and I hope you move past the MS quickly View Thread
Thanks for the advice, girls! I had thought (at the beginning) about how being induced would be nice; planned out, no mad rush to the hospital, but for some reason I'm having a hard time getting used to the idea. It just kind of threw me when she mentioned it, I wasn't expecting her to bring it up YET, when I still have 5 days to D-day. I'm pretty optimistic that I will go this week...
I'm not going for a 'natural birth experience'; more power to those of you who do - you are my heros! I have not mentioned having my membranes stripped, just because I am already 75-80% thinned and thought it might thin some more on it's own. But I am getting impatient, and may have to take "desperate measures" LOLView Thread
