Was at dr appt yesterday, was dialated to 2 cm. All afternoon yesterday was feeling lots of pressure in my lower back and bottom. Got up today not feeling any better, still feeling the pressure, and sick to my stomach a little. Thinking about going to hospital, but don't want to get there then they just send me home. Having a very hard time breathing. No contraction, that I can feel, but the pressure is bad enough. So confused! Don't want to play cat and mouse with the hospital!View Thread
Dr. appt this morning said I was dialated to 2 cm. Going all out now! Going to clean house, garage, shop, and push mow the lawn! Little ones are down for a nap, and older ones get home in a couple of hours. Hopefully this works! Would really like to have this baby very soon, 2 reason's: Husband needs to get back on the road and make money, plus would like to have a aug birthday, we already have 2 in sept. the 20th and 22nd. Lots of pressure in my lower back, contractions have not been very strong or regular, so hopefully they will get moving here soon!View Thread

I am 37 weeks and I have a rash all over my stomach, arms and legs. I am itching like crazy. So bad that I am making the rash bleed. I haven't changed anything, laundry soap, bath soap, shampoo, all have been the same. Diet is been the same. Haven't called the dr. yet, have appt wed. Hope it's nothing major. Feeling like crap, can hardly walk, mostly just waddle and shuffle my swoolen feet. Praying the will enduce me this week. My husband has to get back out on the road soon. Just feel like a dog with fleas!View Thread
Yeah you are right, PUPPS is what it is. I have it bad! Allover my body. It's so painful, cause it's hot out, in the upper 90's and when I put on the cream, it makes my clothes stick to it, plus heat makes me sweat. I am also on benedrly for the itch, but can only take it at nite, cause of drowiness. Said it may last till I deliver. I can't do this for 3 more weeks! I have a dr appt. tomorrow, am praying they will induce me! I am so ready to be done and just be able to hold her in my arms. This has been a very stressful pregnacy! Praying they give me good news tomorrow!View Thread
Have any of you ever done a belly body cast? We are doing one tonight. After 7 kids thought it would be something different and something fun. Bought it at a baby store for $20, you can paint it. I thought it would be nice to have an artist decorate it, after she is fineally born!! What are some ways you mark the birth of your babies? I use to do baby books, but no time for them anymore.View Thread
For the last 2 weeks I have been in labor. The contractions have not been long enough or strong enough to do anything. But just the last few days they have been getting more regular, and stronger. Last nite they were 3 to 4 mins apart for more then 6 hours, so waited, labored through it. Got up this morning, and they had stopped! Starting back up a little bit, more of a dull aching pain on the right side. I am 33 weeks and 4 days. Very tired, and starting to wear out. Just ready to do this and hold my little girl in my arms.View Thread
Hi, Nope nothing yet! Still contracting some, lots of pressure in my bottom and back. Almost to the point the pain is more then I can take. I know she is worth every little bit, but this is the most pain I have ever experienced!! I guess I should know some cause this is #8 and I am getting older, but the dislocated hip and the pain and pressure in my back has been so bad, can hardly walk. Kids are back in school, did not realize just how much I depended on my daughter's! Hope you are doing well!View Thread
Congrats! So happy for you! Love her name. I am still waiting, not much going on, just lots of pain and pressure. I know she is worth the wait. Thoughts and prayer's for you and your family! Take care!View Thread
No! No baby yet, had an appt this morning they checked me, was not even dialated to 1 yet, am getting softer! I cried all the way home. Have been having contraction, and lots of pressure. They have not been consistant enough to do anything, but stress me out! Kids start school a week from today, and I will lose my helper's. I have just been very frustrated, the last couple of weeks, and am ready to be done! Guess it's in God's hands, and I know he will take care of all I need. How are you doing?View Thread
