Hey I am 38 weeks pregnant and one day. With my first baby I never had contractions or any pain before I was induced. I don't remember a lot of the delivery either due to the pain meds. (plus its been 5 yrs ha ha) I am having a boy this time also. Some symptoms I am having right now is dull lower back pain A LOT!! I can barley sleep at night most the time. I have some contractions but nothing that ever really sticks or gets going good. When my little man moves it hurts so bad!! I feel so much pressure and sharp pains in my area. I feel like he could push his was out( also the feeling of peeing on myself) this just started about two days ago. It also seems like he gets really excited or something and starts kicking and moving around and it makes me feel sick to my tummy. I went to the doc last week and I was 2cm dilated and my cervix was hard and high. I also seem to eat less. I am not as hungry and when I do get hungry I get a sick feeling before I can get anything in me. does anyone have any advice or knowledge on if this kind of stuff is normal? like i said with my first pregnancy I never had any pains or anything before they induced me. So i am a little worried with this one. ( my anxity is really bad lately to..I worrie over everything. my relationship, Family, if we have everything we need.. when the baby will come! I think that is just part of the final days though ha ha!) Thanks so much hopefully he will be here soon! oh my due date is 9/11/12 if that helps any!
No I have not yet the pain comes and doesn't stay constant. I have a doc appt Friday so hopefully all the walking is working. When my back is hurting I go get in the tub and put a towel behind my head for comfy ness. If you can try to massage your back or rub it under water. That helps me. And get a good book or something and stay in there for a hr. this will relax all your muscles. I usually do this befor bed it helps me sleep good also. A heating pad can help also I use that when I don't get in the tub. Hopefully we get to see our lo soon! What are you having?View Thread
My sister is 32 and she had 4 kids by the time she was 22. She started at 14. Well after her fourth kid she decided to get a clamp in her hoo ha. I think it last 5 yrs. Well she has been on pain medication for a couple years now and her addiction is really bad. Being nice I would say her pill count is almost to 10 perk a day. and I would believe they are the 10's.. idk im not that experenced with that stuff. But my question is could she be pregnant? If she takes all that medication in a day then could she be. I am sure she does xanex also but that is once a week maybe. I believe she got her clamp done 11 or 12 years ago. I am worried for the baby's health if she could be. I believe she said she is a week and three days late. and she is usually on time.... hopefuly she can't get pregnant for the childs sake of my sister. I know that is mean but its true.View Thread
