Too excited to sleep.... Is what meant
Too excited to sleep.... Is what meant
I got up at 4:30 and I'm pretty sure things slowed when I started moving around, I was pretty consistent at 7 mins laying on my right side just relaxing and timing the cntrx. Oh well. Now I've had some breakfast and been sitting/playing on the computer. Now I'm drinking more of my rrlt and seeing if I can get a time on the contrx again.
My MW said not to bother timing them just to come in when I can't walk or talk through them anymore. I can definitely talk while I'm having one but I'd rather concentrate on breathing. I think I'll give my MW a call around 9 or 10am just to check in and see what she says about when to come in.
I think this is harder on Dh than me, he's really impatient. I can't seem to get him to realize how slow this is going to be.
Thinking of you and sending labour vibes! Common, Abbie! Time to let mama embrace you! !!
Thinking of you. Walking can go either way...For me it would slow things down. A yoga ball would help get things going again.
I got in the recliner and am back at 7ish mins, but I'm getting awful nausea at the start and end of each one. I don't want to move but i wonder if laying on my side again will stop that.
I would be nauseous in a recliner too. I can't be on my back at all... even reclining without nausea.
Get on your side or a yoga ball.
Rest rest rest. You will need your energy.
Did you try that? Also people say the shower does wonders once you start getting uncomfortable. I'm excited to try that this time around. Glad you got something to eat. Eat a banana if you have one around! Let us know what the MW says. :-) so excited for you. Was at my own birthday party last night and kept checking for updates and my friends were getting mad at me lol
Laying down helped, I even got to sleep some. Though getting woken up every 8 mins was kind of sucky lol.
MW said it's still really early and just to keep doing what I'm doing. She said to wait until they're about 2-3 mins apart (though maybe not that short since we live so far away...yeesh) and then the can't walk or talk through them. Of course if I change my mind and want drugs then I can go sooner LOL!
So we wait some more.
You can also take a bath when they get more psinful - great relief!!!
Eeek, sooo excited for you !!
You are doing great momma !!!
Thinking of you and sending lots of ELV!!!!!!!
Remember to stay hydrated and try to eat small, high protein snacks if you can tolerate it...fruit with nut butter, trail mix, yogurt, hummus on rice cakes or crackers, protein bar or drink, string cheese, etc...
Praying and stalking, cannot wait to hear baby news
Me tooooo! Does she have a due date buddy that will update for her? Breathe mama breathe!
Still at home, though I'm guessing not much more than four more hours or so.
I had a good nap and the cntrx are much stronger now, def not able to sleep through and barely able to walk through. About 4-5 mins apart.
Honestly the reason for waiting is to make sure the dogs are set for the night.
LOL, oh the things we wait at home for ...praying your little sweeties get settled in for the night so you can relax and just let your body do what it needs to !
It sounds like you are doing fabulously momma...it's going to get intense, but you are strong, your body knows exactly what to do, you got this and just the moment you think you can't do it anymore, it absolutely won't be much longer before she's in your arms !!!
Thinking of you all the way to the finish line...YOU ARE STRONG and YES YOU CAN (just saying it again for when you forget ) !!!!!
Well I decided I can't wait until 8. We're going to leave in about 30 mins, and it will take about 90 mins to get there.
I know I could wait longer if it weren't for the nausea. That's my Achilles Heel, I just don't deal with it well and it's been constant all day. I'm glad I got to nap several times and ride things out in my comfy bed but now I just want to move forward--literally.
Omg, keep us updated
When it's time to go, it's time to go! Great job laboring at home. Can't wait to hear how far along you are once you get there. Good luck and God bless you both!
Jessica (34) DH (39) This is a first for both of us
Yaaay! Thank you
Good job momma. Stay focused! Breathe.
