Contractions and Pain and Pressure...Oh my!
Nope, still no baby!! I'm 38 weeks and am super frustrated!! I had a pretty bad weekend. Well, it was bad starting around 7pm on Saturday. I started having BIG contractions which hurt really bad. You know, things are never normal with me, so instead of being able to tell when the started and stopped, I just had constant pain. It felt like a never-ending contraction. Well, this pain lasted until THIS MORNING, which is Monday! I finally got some relief this morning, but still called the doctor. Basically, he said that I'm 38 weeks pregnant and there is not a whole lot that can be done. They said to try Tylenol...WHAT??!?! Tylenol?!?! Does Tylenol ever really help anyone? It doesn't help me, though I have been taking some. To make matters worse, I've been having quite a bit of vaginal pain/pressure this afternoon. I'm not holding my breath or getting excited that this could be a sign of labor. I'm just getting super frustrated now!! I'm sure all of you that are reading this are probably thinking "Man, is she ever writing anything positive anymore?!!" Sorry!! I don't think you'll get a really positive blog until this little girl gets out of me!! My next doctor's appointment is Wednesday morning at 8:30 where they'll do another ultrasound (BPP), monitoring (NST), and then of course the doctor's visit. He won't induce until 39 weeks, so I'm hoping I can talk him into inducing me at the beginning of next week. So..everyone say a little prayer that he feels sorry for me and is going to get her out ASAP!!
