So yesterday I lost my mucus plug , I totally freaked out when it happened , I've never seen blood during my pregnancy so I thought something had gone terribly wrong . I started getting contractions so I called the doctor , she said that I was probably just fine but if I didn't feel comfortable that I should go to the hospital to see if I was dilated . So a couple hours went by and my contractions got worse , while they were still irregular we went to the hospital to check it out . After a couple hours they checked twice to see if I was dilated and I was only at 1 cm so we went home . KEEP YOU POSTED !
So last night I pretty much thought I was going into labor.. we were on our way home from a weekend with the family . I ate a bunch of junk food , drank soda.. you name it , I ate it ! Which actually is way different from what happens at home , I hardly eat crap . SHOCKING , I KNOW ! So anyways , I had the worst gas pain I've ever felt in my life . It was just unbearable , finally after we made it home I went straight to bed ! Today I went to the doctor and she checked my cervix after I told her I have been getting tons of Braxton hicks , but he's still pretty high . She said if I get too uncomfortable she'll induce labor . Everything else looked good , so that's all for now ! 2 more days til I'm full term , can't believe it's here already !
Today we went to the doctor and met one of the other doctors since my doctor might possibly be out of town when I have the baby . It's a bummer but I hear that it's all about the nurse anyways.. So we got an ultrasound done , and that streptococcus thing.. of course the ONE time I bring a friend with us I have to take my pants off ! Go figure.. We didn't get any images from the ultrasound but we did get a littleinfo.. his head measured at 35 weeks and 6 days , so that's perfect , but he's about 6.5 lbs which if I go til my due date in exactly a month he'll be around 8lbs . I'm not too worried , I thought he would be way bigger.. my belly is starting to drop finally , but I'm having a really hard time sleeping thru the night . I just keep telling myself.. just a little bit longer ! That is all for now . Here's a pic :
Went to the doctor today ,I'm really surprised I only gained 2 lbs since last time I was there , I was measured at 35 cm . I definitely thought I was gonna get in trouble for gaining more.. for some reason I've been going thru weird phases where I have to have sweets constantly , and other times I'm totally into just drinking water and eating salad . I had my shower in Palm Springs , which was a blast ! We got some of the cutest clothes for Holden I can't even stand it ! Can't wait for my shower this saturday , it's gonna be insane . It's crazy that I only have 5 more doc visits til my due date.. I'm going to meet with the other two doctors in my office because my regular doctor is going on vacay the last two weeks of Dec . :( !! Hopefully I give birth before she leaves !
It's so weird to think I only have about 8 weeks left til I have my little Holden with me . It honestly hasn't really hit me yet , but I know that probably once I stop working and all that I'll be more in tune with what's actually happening to me right now . I got my disability papers from the doctor today , I am gonna be going on maternity leave in about 2 weeks . Oh happy days ! I feel like I haven't seen any of my friends throughout my whole pregnancy , so hopefully this will give me a chance to catch up with everyone . I gained 3 lbs since my last visit 2 weeks ago , and my doctor was happy about that . I have actually cut out drinking sugary drinks and only have been indulging in some good ol' H20 , and tea in the morning . I measured 34 cm last time and I measured the same this time . It's funny how just cutting out a little bit of sugar can make a big difference . I go back in 2 weeks , and I'll have some ultrasound pics to share .
