UGH! This last week has been unreal. I've been fighting a sinus infection, which doesn't help matters at all. I stopped by the doctor's office this morning and requested a blood pressure check because of the headaches, dizziness and naseau, but they confirmed everything was A-OK and it was probably my sinuses.
Now, to top it off, I've been debating whether or not my water has a slow leak in it. Of course, with a 6 pound baby kicking my bladder, it could always be something else. All grossness aside, it really doesn't smell like urine ... but I hate to go to the doctor just to be told that I've peed in my pants. LOL
I did that with Jessi. On the other hand, I didn't even realize my water had broken with Cody until I got to the hospital and they checked me. But what are the odds my water would break prior to labor with all 3???? There's only a 5% chance it would happen once!
I've been having BH contractions for awhile now, but they are starting to get very uncomfortable. I keep trying to convince myself that I've just been doing too much cleaning and carrying Cody around lately, but I'm not sure. They really remind me of the early labor pains that I got with the last two. They're starting to almost "burn" and I feel them in my back as well as my side/front of my abdomen.
It's awful early for that .. especially considering my first two didn't exactly make an easy entrance in the world -- heck, they had to be yanked from the comfort of my womb!
Jeesh -- I wish there was a definitive way to tell what was going on with my body -- like a big neon sign that flashes to tell me "this is it!"
Since I'm sure that it's not the real thing, we're still on for another sonogram and possible induction/planned c-section in 3 weeks. That's not long at all now that I think about it!
I'll take advantage of this holiday weekend to have Mike drag up all of baby stuff so that we can clean it up. I think I have everything that I need at this point, so it's just a matter of setting it up. I guess I'll go ahead and pack my hospital bag -- just to be ready! Half the stuff can't go in until I'm on my way out the door ... but I can have some of it ready!
Well -- I'm off to bath the kids and put my feet up. Hopefully all these little aches and pains will go away! If not, maybe I'll have a different kind of entry next time. LOL
