So Dr appoint at hospital this afternoon went well! Baby doing great - perfect fundal height, 35cms & heartbeat excellent 140-150. She has dropped into pelvis a little bit, Dr could feel 4 parts of the head, so 4/5ths palpable or 1/5ths engaged. (if that makes sense). Asked about these constant period pains, lower back ache & contractions, basically told its braxtons or pre-labour & nothing they can do (ofcourse). Was told to use heat packs & take painkillers. Im in agony tonight, back is absolutely killing me! I had 2 contractions alone in the waiting room this afternoon. Cant fathom another 4 possible weeks with this agony, , have chiro in couple of days time so hoping that helps somewhat! Still here, without my baby girl, holding on.. will keep posted! O the joys of pregnancy.. xx
I am a due in August (7th) mumma, but have had PTL since 32 weeks. Was in hospital with contractions & bloody show etc. Had the steriod shots.
Has been 3 weeks and been pretty good, apart from dilating more, 5cm and losing mucous plug still.
Yesterday I had some bloody show and contractions on/off. Was a bit crampy during the night, didnt get much sleep, my toddler is sick with a cold.
Today I have had a lot of loose bowel movements (not usual for me), lack of appetite, and back/period type pains at the front all day. Picked up in intensity this afternoon. Needing to pee a lot, but thats a common one for any pregnant lady, labour impending or not right?
Im basically waiting for contractions to kick in, feeling pretty uncomfortable at the moment! Ugh
Had a feeling 35 would be the week she arrives, so not prepared for tonight though.. so fatigued from lack of sleep last night & do not have the energy to bring her into the world right now...
What do you guys think, sound like anything at all to you?
