Nothing new to report.
I went in for my weekly fly by:
Cervix: 1 1/2 centimeters this week. Yeah whatever. Could just be the difference in midwives.
Only thing was she couldn’t feel the head this week( are you freaking kidding me?) so they did a quick “where is his head ultrasound.”
And it’s huge.
Even though they didn’t measure it, I know.
I don’t think he’s coming out of the shoot.
He’s just getting bigger, and bigger and bigger………..
And here comes another contraction……..oh joy.
This week in Rose’s Daughter’s quest for deliverance……….
How far along? 37 weeks 5 days.
Total weight gain? 35 pounds. Yes. 35!!!
Maternity clothes? I only have a few left that fit. As I’ve said before, I refuse to spend anymore money on them.
Stretch marks? NO!!! Cocoa Butter is my friend………………
Sleep: What ever. Even though I did sleep pretty good last night.
Best moment this week : More gift cards from C-Dub’s job. Don’t know what I’ll use them for, but I’m sure $100 in gift cards from Babies R Us will come in handy. Ideas anyone?
Movement : Yes, yes. He doesn’t seem to realize that he’s running out of room.
Food cravings : I think I’ve indulged in them all.
Labor Signs: Contractions, contractions and more contractions. But no baby.
Belly Button in or out? It’s kind of flat. Weird.
What I miss: Not waddling
What I am looking forward to : The Birth of this baby.
Milestones: 37 weeks.( Term pregnancy)
So. I went to my Midwife today for my weekly fly by. I got my prenatal records to take with me to the hospital “just in case”. So they asked me if I wanted to be checked.
So, Peggy( the midwife) looks at my belly and proclaims, “that’s a good-sized baby in there.”
REALLY?( Ummmmm yes, that was sarcasm)
But as always, I measure right on target at 38 cm.
As she is feeling around…..”Wow, feel that contraction!”
Heartbeat: Nice and strong… 140s.
Ok. Now, I’ve had vaginal exams before. They have never really been uncomfortable enough to complain about. I always shake my head at my patients when they scream out during an exam thinking, :what the hell?
I didn’t scream, but I thought screaming thoughts in my head.
I am 1 cm dilated! Soft(very soft she said.) and the head is at a minus 2 station.
So all and all, it means those contractions are doing something!!
Now, I just need them to continue to do something and deliver me soon.
Ok, I’ve been trying to post, and really have nothing to say.
I have my weekly OB checkup tomorrow.
I’ve been contracting and cramping and just generally uncomfortable all week.
I guess I’ll let them check me so I can see what(if anything) is going on.
I’m not getting my hopes up.
I wish my uterus would put me out of my misery.
All this cramping, tightening, contraction shit is for the birds.
And Baby Boy is moving like crazy!
My only consolation is…..did you see my ticker???? 25 days left(I hope)!
But for now…….
I am so damn uncomfortable.
I am not a happy mama to be.
