i have what I would call an unusual problem. I take prilosec for heartburn, but- about every other time I take it, I seem to get very bad diarreah. I can't tell if it's from the pill or from something I am eating that just doesn't agree with me. I haven't had this problem in other pregnancies, but, I was just wondering if anyone else has this problem or an idea of what could be causing it?
Has anyone else had problems with regular contractions?
I had to go in to the hospital 2 days in a row because I was having regular contractions that they could not link to anything. All of the tests they ran came back negative & ultimately on the 2 day they had to give me a shot to get them to stop. This was just shy of a week ago & so far so good (fingers crossed).
I had no other indications of pre-term labor & my cervix was completely as it should be (not dilated or starting to thin), I was told to be sure to come back if they picked up again at 5 or more in an hour.
Anyone else have this happening about now?
Not now, but I had it with my first LO at 26 weeks. Apparently, it's relatively common to have them even earlier than that http://bit.ly/y8iyD8
Everything turned out fine, but it scared the bejeezus out of me having them so early. I'm sure you'll be fine too!
This week I am experiencing more discomfort that ever. I can never get comfortable in bed or at work. I am getting barely any sleep so I am exhausted and moody. I can tell the last few months of this pregnancy are going to suck. Plus I am not on maternity leave until I am 34 weeks.
I'm working also. I work as a CNA so basically a whole lot of lifting and on my feet all day. I'd like to keep working until the end of July...that's my goal anyway.
Sometimes I wonder if I'll make it, I get sooo tired. But I think if I took leave too early I'd be bored silly...
30 weeks here too! baby boy kicks and punches HARD most of the day. He's strong! my back's killing me, and I can't find any comfy sleeping position, but I'm so happy I'm this close to meeting my boy!
Congrats to you all!
I hate to sound bratty but I can still sleep comfortably (I'm very thankful) and even sleep on my back sometimes! I have had to start using breathe right strips to keep my nasal passages open (they swell up too!). My sciatica has really toned down but I do feel generally tired and worn out... maybe this is due to juggling a 2 year old and a FT job, i'm not sure.
As far as maternity leave I plan on working until I go into labor! I only get 12 weeks off so I want all of that time with my little daughter! With my son I took a week or two off before my due date and ended up being a week late so I wasted three weeks at home before he was born that I could have had after his arrival! I can fully understand taking earlier maternity leave with a physically demanding job - -I am a desk jockey so it's easier to work further into the pregnancy!
I'm excited to meet my little girl but I;m also a little sad that this will most likely be my last pregnancy. Pregnancy is such a special time in your life and its here and then gone! Enjoy your last weeks ladies! There is nothing more wonderful than feeling your completely content baby kicking away inside you - they are completely cared for in your womb. They never need or want anything, it is all there for them, delivered instantly!
Congrats to all for making it this far. I need some advice. I went to the doctor last week. I was having some braxton hicks. Doctor told don't worry bout it until they are like 5min apart. Now I have some pelvic pressure mostly when I walk and if I have to go pee it instensifies. I have come to get use to get. I was wondering if this is normal or should I contact my doctor right away? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
Finally feels like the real count down can begin! Am I the only one that's starting to feel REALLY uncomfortable lately?
Week 30!! So excited getting closer to meeting my littl girl. My feet are so puffy its difficult to find shoes for work but I am trying to be positive. Starting to get uncomfortable but i'm seeing the finish line now.
Congrats to all of u and I cant wait to meet my new bundle of joy!!!!!!!!
I have an anterior placenta so I feel movement but not very strong or a lot at all.
