Tiny Update

My last pre-natal on Wednesday, the doc said the baby still hadn't dropped and things really weren't much further along than they had been the previous week. I was so disappointed... I'd been hoping he'd say that I'd lost my plug, the baby had dropped, and I was already somewhat dialated.

Oh well.

He offered to strip my membranes to speed things along. I've heard this is a painful procedure so I declined for this week. Concerned about my small stature he told me that if I still haven't delivered in the week after my due date that he'll induce me. I'm grateful for this.

It is seriously getting harder and harder every day. I know I'm isolating. I can't sit at the pc for longer than 5 minutes or so. I can't do much of anything for longer than 5 minutes or so. Even laying down is difficult due needing to turn over frequently. I should not complain; I have had an easy pregnancy compared to most people... but I'm finding this so hard now.

My friends threw me a great shower last Sunday. I got so many wonderful things that will help with the baby... I feel like I've got everything I need right now. Still have some organizing of the baby's room, but I'm so tired. At the shower, unfortunately there were about 4-5 people who were sick. It didn't look like I was going to catch anything, but I've started to feel ill today with a sore throat, and I'm much more tired than I was yesterday despite having slept decently. This would be a very bad time to get sick... I hope it doesn't happen. I hope my poor body can fight it off. I hope I have the strength to get through what is to come.

Missed you! Of course you are fed up - you just want it to happen - but remember that delayed gratification makes it better.

It must be very hard, especially if you have a smaller stature - but when it happens, I know that all the discomfort will be instantly forgotten.

Am thinking of you..........

Going to a baby shower when you're sick is beyond stupid. Didn't occur to any of them that you might catch it and *big surprise* you're pregnant, so it might not be good to be sick. *hugs* I really hope you don't get sick.

Part of the problem is that the two people who were throwing the shower were both sick. The one was going to throw the shower, and then she backed out of it at the last minute due to illness... which was wise. She still attended, as I think I probably would too (having done all that work and all)... what was unfortunate is the other hostess came down with something the same day, and the two others that were ill, well, they were on the mend and probably no longer contagious. Probably :/

Membrane stripping does hurt. I had that done with 8yo as she was running late. (Heh... she's been late ever since too...)

I know this sounds weird, but sometimes having some nice gentle sex will trigger other uterine activity, if you know what I mean. I'm not kidding about this. Maybe it's coincidental, but I know enough people for whom this has been true, that it's somewhat of a pattern.

*hugs* for you, sweetie. It's almost over... This is the end of the low-maintenance time. ;)

I've heard this about the sex... unfortunately sex hasn't been possible for months now, due to the extreme pain :/

I just hope I get over this cold enough to give the baby some antibodies so it's not born sick.

Hang in there. It will be isolation, apprehension and then it will be like being flung into an amusement park, the activity will be so intense. After the baby comes out, like a new world.

Re: Hey
I just hope it will be physically somewhat more comfortable... amusement park or no :P
