Re: Symptoms - January

  • @mamakate1616 I’ve never heard of these Azo pills but I’m going to have a look around for them. I got a horrible UTI after giving birth the first time and combined with having a newborn, recovering with stitches, etc it was awful. I’m so scared of having to go through that again. Sounds like these pills could be a good preemptive strike!
    @BuckeyeNut05 I, too, am cracking up reading about your afternoon with Grant and the rectal rocket :lol: I’m sorry to hear you’re in so much pain though, and hope you start to feel relief ASAP!

  • At my 31 week growth scan LO was breech ... I had an appointment this week 33 weeks but forgot to ask which way he was laying. Today I have been achy throughout my pelvis and hips. I guess I’m just hopeful that if he’s hasn’t flipped he will soon and wondering if maybe that’s where the increase in pain/pressure is coming from. 

    On another note I also have a bloody nose every time blow my nose which is about 5-10 times/hour. Lovely.
  • @ashley14598 if you feel the hiccups, that can pinpoint the location of the baby's head. With a head-down baby, they'll be really low.

  • So, it seems like I'm feeling symptoms of the baby's position both low AND high... I'm 34 weeks so I know the baby is taking up most of my torso at this point, but I've mostly heard people talking about either feeling pressure down low or pain up higher. I've been feeling kicks and pressure under my ribs along with shortness of breath for weeks now and, as of recently, I've also felt weird discomfort/pressure in my crotch that feels like the baby's head is down low. I thought if the baby "dropped" then I'd at least get some relief in terms of rib pain and breathing! It seems more like he's just stretching out..

  • @bug_hunter I'm feeling the same way! My LO is the same...extremely stretched out. This week has been the worst at having shortness of breath. I keep waiting for that relief to come!

  • @kristimh80 I'm sorry you're feeling this way too, though glad I'm not alone! I'm taking a birth class where they talked about "lightening" when the baby drops and you feel more pelvic pressure but can finally breathe, but they never talked about feeling like you're getting attacked from all angles! 
  • @bug_hunter Not sure which is worse! But right now I'll take all the punches for regular breathing again lol

  • It has not been a good night here for me. I took a bath around 7 PM last night to try to relax and get to bed early, in bed by 830. So I started having severe pain in my lower right back, so bad so that’s OB thought it would be best to come to the ER. So fast forward I’m here, turns out I have hydronephrosis (swelling of the kidney) possibly due to kidney stone. I have been up all night in excruciating pain. They initially put me on IV narcotics for pain but I have not had any relief, now they’re putting me on a morphine pump. I have never felt anything like this before in my life and pray I never will ever again. Btw this all started from a UTI last week which caused me to have blood in my urine. And now here I am, infection is worse & I could possibly have kidney stones.  I was supposed to go into work today, guess I am getting a 3 day weekend afterall.

  • @cdub4292 I'm so sorry you're in so much pain.  I can't imagine!  I hope they can get it under control quickly for you.

    I feel like over the last 10 days, everything has changed.  I went from feeling overall good and not having any pregnancy issues to so incredibly uncomfortable.  I really didn't expect a dramatic change like it has been.  I expected to be uncomfortable from the start or to not have this until around 34-35 weeks.  Three days before 30 weeks is when it hit.  I spent 3-4 days feeling like my pelvis was being ripped apart.  I couldn't stand or sit and laying on my sides for very short periods of time was the only relieve.  Then baby seemed to triple in size over night and I'm being kicked/punched really low and up into my rib cage at the same time.  I feel like she went from 1.5 lbs to 10 lbs over night!!!  My next ob appointment is 1/29 and I haven't been seen since 1/2 because of scheduling issues.  I'm supposed to have a repeat echo and biweekly growth ultrasounds starting at 30 weeks but that's not happened yet lol.  Sleeping is non-existent, heartburn is a daily issue, breathing is a joke since I'm still recovering from pneumonia and my asthma hasn't improved much.  The only other treatment at this point is steroids and I'm trying to hold off until I absolutely need them because of development reasons.  I'm not really able to carry much, my daughter or laundry is a huge chore that takes me forever.  Tell me that this is all very normal and it will just continue until I deliver and it won't get a whole lot worse?!?

  • @cdub4292 I hope you feel better soon!!! 

    @violetmarie61516 I am in the same boat. I feel like a lazy mess bc at best I am laying in the bed when not at work. Baby is very heavy and I can’t breathe if I do too much. Laundry is a nightmare bc of going up and down our stairs. I tried to clean the house yesterday and had to sit down literally every 3 or 4 minutes bc I was getting winded and feeling pain from lugging this ball around LOL. I have asthma as well and it seems to have gotten worse with the growth spurt of the baby. I feel like she’s getting bigger every night (which she probably is) and it’s like wow I still have 7 weeks to go of this!
    cdub4292
  • @violetmarie61516 Sorry you are having a rough time and not feeling comfortable. I can sympathize with you, I had pneumonia for most of 2nd tri and it was awful trying to breathe and sleep. As for the feeling uncomfortable part in third tri, that is normal. I'm a STM too and started to feel uncomfortable somewhere around 28 weeks and I'm just over 34 weeks now. I have hit the "I'm done" phase of pregnancy. I have things I want to do but then I'm too tired after one task and need to rest for a while. I also have a lot pelvic pressure from DD2 dropping into my pelvis already. Hang in there mama and take it easy on yourself. My plan from here until delivery is to rest up as much as possible...if that is possible.

  • @zionsmama85 and @novelblessings ; Thank you for understanding and making me feel more normal lol.  I am taking it day by day.  It's so hard with MH still living in the house and hating me.  If you all remember, I'm going through a divorce recently and it's gotten REALLY messy.  My family and friends have been helping a ton but it's so incredibly hard and I still have moments that I just melt down and feel so alone.  I will get through though.  I have to for my girls.

  • @violetmarie61516 I got really uncomfortable around 30 weeks... felt tight in the abdominal/core area all the time, which made it hard to breathe. I couldn't walk on the treadmill like I had been doing until then and I had to sit down within the first ten minutes at my works "standing meetings" (a thing they do to encourage brevity). Now at around almost 34 weeks I'm starting to feel tons better. Not sure how far along you are now, but maybe that will give you a little hope.

  • Thanks for all the well wishes everyone! So it ended up that I had an extremely large kidney stone blocking my right side, they removed it and put a stent in to drain the kidney. I’ve never been on so many pain meds in my life & they were still not taking the pain 100% away. Kidney stones are seriously no joke.  They had me stay i the hospital another night just to monitor me and make sure everything is ok, which thankgod they did because I have been peeing out quite a bit of blood (which they say is normal) and my stent just partially came out. So my OB nurse had to call the urology doctor to see what I had to do and they just took it out. Nothing like anxiety that I’m still gonna have an infection sitting in there, but I will see him tomorrow before I leave. So anyway, a lot less drama tonight & hopefully better sleep for this mama tonight. I have officially made it to the point where if I went into active labor they would not try to stop it! 34 weeks in 3 hours! Hope everyone is feeling better! Thanks for listening to my complaining!

  • @cdub4292 Oh wow, I’m so sorry you’ve had to go through all this! It sounds painful and frightening, but hopefully you’ll start to feel much better now that they’ve removed the stone. On the bright side... labour is going to feel like a piece of cake compared to kidney stones :wink: :smiley: Take care of yourself!

    @violetmarie61516 I'm sorry you're so uncomfortable and without the support. I would lean on your support system from your friends and your family as much as you can.  That has to be really hard. Hang in there - you're so close to the end!

  • I am so uncomfortable sitting down. Whether it's in a chair or on the toilet. I have hemorrhoids, but this is definitely in my vagina/cervix area. Is this what the pressure feels like if the baby drops? Does anyone else feel this kind of pain?

  • @Kenneylynn3 I've been feeling this pain for about a week now but am not sure if it's due to the baby dropping! I definitely feel it the most when I'm sitting on the toilet... 
    Kenneylynn3
  • @kennylynn1990 I think that if the baby is head down, its probably due to them settling their head in the pelvic cavity. i get that uncomfortable feeling too. 
    Kenneylynn3
  • @zionsmama85 ; This lo has been head down since at least 28 weeks (currently 32). The pressure, just feels so much worse over the past 2 days. Maybe they are settling into the pelvic cavity for their decent (is that what they mean by "dropped")?

  • @Kenneylynn3 My LO dropped recently and I’m a little over 34 weeks now. I sit all day at work and have pain and pressure in my crotch. I think it’s baby’s head putting pressure on things. Maybe baby is more engaged now than previously. I don’t know. I didn’t have this with my first.

  • Can you develop sleep apnea when you're pregnant?  I've never had a problem before but I'm finding two things.  One, I have been waking up constantly for no reason other than I feel like I can't breath/my mouth is dry.  Two, when I was in the hospital for asthma/pneumonia (granted I was very sick) every time I laid down and fell asleep my oxygen level dropped dramatically.

    Anyone experienced or heard of this?  Something I'm going to bring up at my next OB appointment.

  • @violetmarie61516 idk about sleep apnea specifically, but I have a lot of congestion due to swollen nasal passages and often wake up in the morning feeling really dehydrated/dry mouth. So I could totally see that being a pregnancy thing.
    ME: 32  DH: 32 DD1: June '16 DD2: March ‘19 :::: Married since 2011 :::: USN Wife ::::
  • @violetmarie61516 I don’t know anything about sleep apnea, but just wanted to suggest using a humidifier for dry mouth and congestion. I used it when I was stuffed up with a cold a few months back, but have continued to use it because it seems to help with my nighttime breathing (I’ve found that our heating system really dries out the air so helps with that too). Good idea to check with your OB though; hope s/he has some good answers for you. 
  • @violetmarie61516 with DD1 I would often wake up gasping for breath. My OB told me it was because of how she was positioned and there wasn't much we could do (she was breech with her head up under my ribs). Hopefully what you're experiencing is just a positioning issue and your LO will scoot to a different spot soon!
  • @violetmarie61516 I woke up with a sore throat the last two days and complained to DH, and today when I woke up he had sent me an audio file of me apparently snoring this morning and I had no idea I was doing that
