I'm almost 34 weeks (friday) and just wanted to see how everyone else is feeling now...are you counting days to?? How often is everyone else having BH contractions? I've been having menstal like cramps lately...is that normal? anyone else?? Can't wait to hear from you all :)

 

Tammy - September 7

I am 33 weeks and oh boy, am I counting. I think I am actually making it go slower. I went to the doctor today for my ultrasound. Now I will be going every 2 weeks. I cannot bend or squat down. I cannot imagine 7 more weeks of this.

I am 34 weeks today, and can't wait to be done. I was put on bed rest a few weeks ago due to a placenta abrubtion, so sitting at home has made time go even slower. I have lots of BH contractions and pretty much continuous cramping - the cramps get more intense sometimes, but they are almost always there to some degree. I hope I go a little early, 37 weeks would be perfect!

Thanks for responding Tammy and Jl :) Yes..counting makes it go slower too I think..lol. I'm going to the doctor every 2 weeks now, I go on Friday then starting the 23rd it should be every week....I can't bend either Tammy!! it's funny how stupid I must look..lol .Yesterday my husband and I went to buy me new shoes on the way to a dinner function (all mine don't fit anymore except flip-flops!) and I couldn't bend down to strap up the shoes! I asked the lady nicely..could you?? how dumb I felt :) Sorry to hear about your bed rest Jl....that can be boring . maybe you WILL go early :) what does your doc think? should I be worried about the cramping??

I've been having BH contractions since the 25th week or so...they can get uncomfortable sometimes, but sipping on cold water helps. Which prenancy is this for you all??? This is my 3rd, but our youngest is 10 and our daughter will be 13 this saturday so it's like starting all over again!

we are 32 weeks at the moment, very sore groin area most days for a few hours at a time. i couldnt sleep well lastnight, bad back pain and felt pretty nauseous too! it hurts to try and put my shoes on for work - i cant even reach my feet barely :) we had our first anti-natal (birthing) cla__s lastnight and it was pretty interesting. we're due october 30 though my mum is convinced it wont be that long for us :-s im trying not to take any notice of that! lol. the midwife says she is in position and has started to drop a bit... this is all suddenly becoming very real, very fast :)

 

Barb - September 7

Hello Kare...welcome :) I'm sorry to hear about all the aches and pains...if it makes you feel better, me too...lol I've had terrible groin pain almost since month 3 or 4. It hurts to lift my leg to put pants on...like someone litterally kicked me in the crotch. It makes me think I'll go early...but don't we all want to be early by now :) I don't sleep well...no more than a couple hours at a time, my back hurts alot, and I can't reach my feet....44 days AND COUNTING! Due on the 21st :)

 

kare - September 7

the midwife asked us lastnight at the cla__s "when are you due?" and i said "october" and she replied very bubbly "oh.. next month!" and i think i froze all over lol.. counting down the weeks you dont realise just how close it really is! any idea what it means when the baby begins to drop? i can actually look in the mirror at the moment and see the difference - that she has started to drop..

 

MK - September 7

Hello everyone... I am due Oct. 2nd..36 weeks 3days....24 days until due date...yeah, I'm counting up AND counting down:) This is my fourth pregnancy and it is so much worse than any other. All the aches and pains...NEVER had any like these! I have been trying to get the baby to drop by doing squats. It's not so easy! I have been off work for a WEEK now...it seems more like a month. It's good though because I worked in a bar...Quit smoking today as well! Better late than never, huh?

 

Naomi - September 7

Hi I am just 31 weeks, I am planning to have my baby in october at 37-38 weeks because my baby is due on my sons birthday. And those last few weeks are so horible. I am counting down the days, and they are not going so fast, I am trying to keep busy but am running out of odd jobs to do around the house. All seems to be going well apart from the heart burn and stich like pain in my tummy when I walk too far. I have not had any BH contractions at all. This is my second pregnancy so maybe that is why although I do not remember getting them for my first 7 years ago. What about you all have you been getting any BH contractions ? How do they feel? I am drinking 3 cups of rasberry leaf tea a day and like the taste. I do not normaly drink any coffee or tea so this is a first for me.

 

Barb - September 7

WELCOME MK :) This is my 3rd and I think it's the worst preg.ever too! I never felt like this with the other 2...but then again that was 10 years ago...LOL congrats on quitting work and smoking! My friend is due on the 23rd of THIS month and she too was working ina bar...I think sh'll end it on the 17th. I'm not working now either...just waiting, and waiting, and waiting...Ha! So far it looks like you're the first one due on the 2nd...I'm excited to wait with you :)

 

to kare....from Barb - September 7

to "drop" is when the baby moves down in the pelvic bones...that's exciting that you dropped already :) I'll have to ask my doctor when I go on Friday what she thinks...I can't tell if I did or not. Good luck! :)

 

kare - September 7

whoa.. okay. i didnt know that! thanks barb!! MK congrats on the quitting hun, i stopped the morning i found out i was having a bubba. naomi - ive heard some great feedback about raspberry leaf tea.. not sure where i can get some from tho :-s this is my first pregnancy.. im kinda sad that it is already nearing the end..excited of course because soon we can meet our little girl face to face, but still sad that it will be over.

 

to Naomi...from Barb - September 7

HI NAOMI :) welcome! don't say you're JUST 31 weeks...LOL you're nearing the end like all of us here :) congrats!! I get BH contractions all the time...if this is your 2nd you should feel them I would think....your tummy gets really hard for 30-60 seconds. everything "squishes".... do you ever feel that?? And if you're running out of odd jobs to do,come on over I've got plenty to do..hahaha!!! :) When is your due date?? I just ordered the red rasberry leaf tea..waiting for it to get here....hoping it will help me feel better.

 

kare - September 7

what does the raspberry leaf tea taste like? it helps your uterus to tighten up, right? help prepare you for labour?

 

to kare....from Barb - September 7

you can get the tea from this website: www.herbsmd.com and it's on sale :) I'm looking forward to getting it.
