So ladies---Just got back from my 36 week check up and I am dialated to 2 and 85% effaced. They drew my blood because they think I have pupps...IF I do have it they will induce me at 38 weeks! Doctor doesnt think I will be going full term! WOO HOO

Ahay...I am having similiar issues. I have a condition called Pregnancy Induced Cholestasis. My hands and feet tich like you would not beleive. They are red and swollen. I am on steroids to try to reduce the swelling and itching but it isn't working. They are taking the baby next Friday because often times the liver issues can affect baby and babys can sometimes be born still born because the liver issues get so bad. So I guess I need to get ready quick! I hope you feel better. Trust me, I understand the itching!!!

todays my due date. madelyn seems like shes super comfy in there. ive been losing my mucous plug for a couple weeks now, but today i had what my dr believes is my bloody show...though there wasnt any greeny mucousy stuff, it was brown blood a rather large spot in my undies when i woke up this morning, and last time i went to the dr they told me i had started dilating, not much but at least its something. im dilated to 1 cm(last checked) 90%+ effaced, and god im praying she comes soon...ive been having alot of contractions...but none were regular...theyd get kind of regular and then just stop before it hit time to go to the hospital. im scared, but so anxious, yesterday , my hormones went NUTS...i got upset over something small...my db (dear bf, my own term) is going out of town about three days after my induction date...which is set for oct 8-9...(8 at 11:30 pm) and i got upset thinking about how he was going to stay with his family up there and not want to come back, and how i wanted to go with him and couldnt...i had a HUGE freak out session--- i mean my sister even said shed never seen me so upset in my life...i was practically hyperventilating over the irrational idea that he would rather do something for himself than be with me in a really hard time for me...i understand its not his baby, but he wants to be a father figure to her, and he keeps talking about how excited he is to see her, and i think im going to need him so much that first week, the idea of handling it all on my own just got me overwhelmed too, on top of the idea of him leaving me.. :( maybe the hormones are a sign shes close? what sucks the most is that me and df were having ... a cervix dilating session (if you get my meaning) right when the dr called and told me that it was probably my bloody show and i forgot to ask whether i should still have s_x but i a__sumed it might cause an infection so we had to stop MID s_x. it SUCKED. should i be having s_x??? for once i was actually in the mood:( ive been drinking raspberry leaf tea, at least one cup a day (cept for yesterday because i slacked...) and im hoping that helps with my contractions. any of you women swear by accupressure? im almost desperate enough to try it. i was so sure shed come early, i cant believe todays her due date and shes not here. =1

Hi Allie and Amanda! Allie, your progress is great! Hopefully you don't have PUPPS! ut hopefully you will go early anyway! : )

Dee--yeah that is what she told me I may have and if I test positive with it then she will induce on the 17th. I HATE this itching, And do you get really red where you scratch? Like purpleish dots?

 

afireinsideamanda - October 3

i feel like im starting to annoy all of you. im sorry

Amanda you're just fine. Don't think that. Pregnancy is hard! God knows I have had every freakin problem in the book nearly. My only respite is knowing that I have SIX (yes..count em') DAYS left before meeting my son. DEE and AHAY: Pregnancy induced cholestasis is VERY common. I am glad your docs are on top of it all!!

 

afireinsideamanda - October 4

well its good to hear that, because i really appreciate the help i get from you all. sorry if i post too many questions and such.... i have about four or five days till i meet madelyn as well

 

DeeD - October 4

Yes Ahay...it is my palms and my feet and it is driving me nuts!

Hello all! Went to doc yesterday and they finally checked me. I am 1 cm (its a start). It surprised me cause I didnt think I was. So hopefully not much longer (I am due Oct 13). One question I do have. I noticed that after the doc checked me, I've been spotting some. Kind of brown not too bad. Is that bloody show or is that just normal? First time mommy here.

 

chickiepoo9 - October 4

it's normal to bleed a little after s_x or a doc appt unfortunetly doesnt mean baby is coming

 

tarheelfan71 - October 4

Thanks for the info. :)

 

chickiepoo9 - October 4

afireinsideamanda havent heard anything from you today are you having that baby?

 

afireinsideamanda - October 4

:) good to be a bit missed. no, i just decided to cool it down a bit with posting so much and give you other ladies a chance. i felt stupid. lol. no, shes STILL in there! i swear to god, im going nuts! im trying desperately, everythin gi can to get her to come out on her own. i really hate the idea of being induced..im schedule to go in monday night at 11:30 so if you would all pray for me, im trying EVERYTHING. i really dont want ot try castor oil but if by around sunday ive not had her, i may be desperate enough. so far ive tried masturbation,s_x, nipple stimulation, accupressure, walking, stairs, raspberry leaf tea, and probably more that doesnt come ot mind. oh yeah, spicy food i went to the store last night and bought mexican frozen stuff. haha. i ate it with no effect. all i can say, is im jumping my man, HARDCORE haha. i feel bad for him. hes never going to get any sleep.(sorry if tmi) but i really dont want to have an augmented labor...but dr says that most first time labors end up getting pitocin anyway...so really im not doing much different even if i have her on my own. thanks for taking the time to care!!! honestly, it means alot! just pray for me, im going to keep doing everything ive been doing and try some pineapple as well because i hear that has some natural chemical in it that causes contractions too??? if any of you have any other tips, things that DEFINITELY worked for you, id so much appreciate your help! thank you ladies, and ill keep you updated...just not twelve posts a day from now on. :( lol, sorry, i dont have much of a life anymore.

OMG I itch so BAD!!!! Dee--how far along will you be when they take the baby? My doc told me she would induce at 38 weeks but I dont think I can wait this long with all the itching!
