Ok! So it has been snowing none stop this whole winter! It won't melt so there is about 3 feet or more of snow piled on our lawn. It is just getting ridiculous! I usually love the snow...it snows then a few days later it melts etc. Not this winter! My husband came home for lunch today and of course it was an absolute blizzard and he got stuck in a snow drift. Thankfully a good samaritan in jeep came and pulled him out. Thank goodness cuz there isn't a whole lot I can do being almost 9 months pregnant in a Dodge Neon. Please just stop snowing already! I think it would be more fun if I could go sledding or something like that. But my very large belly won't allow it. Dang it!
No he is not here yet! I am going absolutely crazy! Not only am I having contractions all the time but I can not sleep! Last night I tried sleeping in our lazy boy but that didn't work cause I was freezing(I know weird usually I have night sweats but we live in a basement and it was absolutely freezing!) so I then tried to get in bed and that was miserable! I was tossing and turning...well as much as I could with a huge belly and pain through out my whole body. I went to bed at midnight at didn't get up till almost 1pm. I just can not get any sleep. Well I went to the doc on Monday hoping that they would do something to get this moving. My contractions are sometimes 2 1/2 mins. apart yet they never get stronger. But no the doc said that they will not induce me until 39 weeks. She told me that she wanted me to do another 24 hour urine test (for the 3rd time). She said that if it was over 500 that they would induce me in 2 days. I have never prayed so hard in my life. But no...it was the lowest it has been at 156(the other 2 times it was 250 and 210). AHHHHH! Well after the doc appointment I got in the car and just started crying! I really feel like I am going to die. I talked to another midwive the day I turned in my urine and she said that if I don't start on my own that they will induce me in 10 days. YAY! Someone actually gave me something to look forward to! I am definitely holding her to it. So I now have 8 days left! If she lied I am going to be very angry!!! These blogs seem like I am just complaining! But this is my life right now since I can't do anything else! Soon...this will all be over and I will have Tegan in my arms!
Well I have been having contractions since Saturday. Yesterday I was so sick of them not progressing that I decided to go on a walk with my mom and they changed to about 7 mins. apart. It stayed that way for a while. I then decided to go walking with my husband at Wal-mart since it was freezing outside and late. My contractions then changed to 2-3 mins apart. So we then went to the hospital. Well they hooked me up to all the monitors and of course I was having contractions. But everytime I had a contraction Tegan's heartbeat went down. So they then hooked me up to oxygen (o so exciting!). After that it went back to normal. Then they decided to send me home to get some rest after 2 1/2 hrs. I knew that I wasn't going to get any sleep so I asked for some morphine. I came home and slept better than I have for a long time. But now I can't feel the contractions and can't tell if I am even having any! I do have a doc appointment at 2:15 so I am hoping that they will give me something to push this along! My husband is stressing and I am stressing! I don't want to keep doing this! Everyone please pray for me that I can get this dang baby out of me! I just want to hold him, love him, and get back to normal! Is that too much to ask?
Well I have seen a few people that have these and decided to try it out! It is taking me a while to figure it out but with being on bedrest this will give me something to do. I am currently 36 weeks due Feb. 15th. I am hoping that at my doctors appointment on Monday that they will decide to induce me. I can not take this anymore! I can't do anything and I really have no one to help me. Yes, I am living in my parents basement and some might think that it would be great. But it isn't! I get a little more help than if we were at our own place but it gets really annoying! I won't go into details cause it will seriously take me forever and I don't feel like writing about it. So everyone please pray for me...If my doc won't induce me that he will come sooner than later so I don't have to do this anymore! I just want to get back to my normal self. This pregnancy has not been easy on me or anyone else. I am crabby, emotional, my blood pressure sky-rockets when I just walk around, I am still having morning sickness, If I don't have a headache I have a migraine, I can never get good sleep, I have hot flashes as if I was going through menopause. I also want to be able to lose weight! I want to be skinny again if I can! LOL!
