That happened with me at close to 36 weeks. The doctor sent me to the hospital because of back pain and the babies heart beat being high. Everything turned out fine, but I was checked and the nurse said the same thing. She said that it is common with women who have allready had children. That as it starts to open it may open from out to in, leaving the inside closed. A week later though I was checked again and it was completely open. Now that I'm actually dialating its all evenly open so no worries. Like I said, it was one week later that I was both dialated, the cervix was completely softened and the babies head was (I think she said at 0). Labor is a funny thing, especially after the you've allready been there. I've had contractions for weeks, and I'm dialating and the babies head is lower than my other 2 where up until delivery. I feel like I'm just sitting around waiting for things to take off!View Thread
So maybe its just me but my doctor made a comment at my appointment on Monday that kinda has me feelin funky. She was checking my cervix (due 1-11) and she said that I'm dialating and when she felt the dialation she felt the babies head, so he's way down there. That kinda creeps me out thinking she put her hand up me and touched the babies head. Its weird thinking that its open, and the baby is right there! I'm waiting for labor at any time, now that I'm uncomfortable and creeped out! Anyone else heard anything like this at the the doctors office?View Thread
OMG, thank you all so much! I felt so much better after reading your responses! My brother in law came and got her today, but I'm sure my husband has me me sounding like a horrible person. I have not talked to him yet. I've actually tried to have nothing to do with him I'm so p'od at him. Its so awful, but I've actually considered making him the last to know when the babies coming if he's not home! I'm just vendictive enough to do it! LOL now that I do not have to deal with the situation I can make myself feel better by plotting my revenge. I don't deal well with being called names, especially crazy or the b word. Theres nothing like pregnancy hormones, discomfort and a genuine reason to be mad. LOL my son heard me tell my best friend that my husband tried to put his feet on my leg in bed and I wanted to rip off his leg. I'm just waiting for him to tell his daddy that mommy is gonna rip his leg off! Maybe that and the call right before he gets home from work saying "oh by the way, been in labor all day" might make me feel better!View Thread
So I am 37 weeks and starting to dialate, and so ofcourse my doctor sais be ready. All i wanna do is relax and get my affairs in order being that this is my 3rd. So my mother in law is visiting from Mexico and speaks NO english. She never stays with us for more than 1 day, she stays with the her other 2 boys here who's wives are not white vegetarians. Thats always great with me, but now that she's here and I'm 9 months pregnant she's staying with us. Its been almost a week and I hate it. We can not communication, my husband gave her my bath sponge, she rearranged MY bathroom. She tells my son no after I say yes starting a fight. No lie, I was trying to eat lunch, so he was watching tv (he's 4) and she sat on the couch with him and said "my tv" and turned it to the spanish channel! He freaked. She's using all my groceries to cook for my husband who is only here at night so I'm eating alone with my son, with the pans I can find. The are leaving the things she cooks in the pans, on the stove for days. I have to go upstairs to relax and watch tv but then I have to break up a fight because she can not understand my son. I know she is only here to get her hands on this baby, and of course that pisses me off. I want to relax and stock up, not clean up after her taking care of my husband, watch my son more, and eat less and do more shopping. I was so stressed yesterday and told my husband, who through a fit and has been talking crap about me every since. I hate him so much today. I'm honestly wondering why I married him. I can't believe he calls me names because I'm not enjoying staying out of her way in my house about to have a baby. Does he really think I wanna watch spanish television and try to entertain someone I know doesn't like me, and can not undertand anything I say! OR clean up after her, and let her have my bath products (ewwww, i do not want my bath sponge back!). Its all about her, and him, and I'm just here birthing for them!!!!!! Last night I went to bed at 7 just to be out before I had to see or listen to him (he was out with his mom last night). He actually called me crazy, and a stupid "b"! Sorry for all the rant, its just hard wanting to have happy me time, and time with my younger son before I have a new baby, then having her come, then telling him and getting yelled at. I just want to never see either of them again at this point, but what do I do, I LIVE HERE TOO. I guesse I'll just keep busy again today and not talk to my husband ever again (LOL, I'll text him when I'm in labor). Thanks for reading, and caring, and letting me vent. I need it very much right now. Advice is welcome.View Thread
I am also on my states medicare. My husbands income was reduced which is how I qualified. I know its much easier to get on it while pregnant, my kids don't even qualify, just me. You may get it still just because of the pregnancy. Before I found out I got it I looked into how we would do it without insurance, and the doctor had a payment plan, and the hospital also had a payment plan. Just work out with them a monthly payment. Its not ideal with no money, but atleast the hospital will work with you, you'll just be in debt for ever LOL.View Thread
So what do we do with our drop side cribs now that they are considered unsafe? I've had our crib for years, and have it set up, and now we hear they are unsafe. What do you think of these new developments, especially for those of us in late pregnancy who allready have their drop side crib set up!? These are not an inexpensive re purchase. I would rather just use the bassinet and play pen than buy a new crib.View Thread
So I was given a glider and ottoman from a friend. The chair itself is in great shape, but the cushions have seen better days. I've tried looking for cushions, but I've only seen cushions more expensive than new gliders! Has anyone purchased replacement cushions for their glider?View Thread
I am, I was in the hospital last night, for far to long. My doctor asked me to go in because of seriouse back pain I was having for about a week. They said I had irritable uterus and contractions, thats what was causing my pain. What was worse was the pain was raising my blood pressure so I had to be monitored, and the babies heart rate was high for too long. I'm suppost to rest on my side as much as possible and avoid lifting or anything strenuouse. What a pain at Christmas.View Thread
after that this will sound very shallow lol. Usually all I ask for is no fighting, but after the last few days, I don't care if they all fight if they get me a back and foot massager with those water jets! Xmas shopping, my oldests bday, getting ready for the new baby, and the required parties, I'm hurtin!View Thread
