All day today it got worse and worse and worse. I took 3 baths, 2 showers, tried walking, tried sleeping, tried sitting on my ball (which was the most relief I found).
Needless to say I cried all day long.
I think I am going crazy.
The pressure is unbelivable.
When Alex got home, he shipped the kids off to a friends house and took me for a long walk. That was the most relaxed I have felt for days. We got home and the pressure and random really strong contractions were still present.
So we decided to take 1 1/2 tbsp of castor oil. I am 35Weeks and 3Days. The baby is over 5lbs.
I will keep you posted on how things go.
Please be praying for me.
Still feeling the same :(
Nothing too eventful happened last night.
My contractions got a bit stronger, but nothing too terrible.
They were 10 minutes apart, then 5, then 2, then around midnight they slowed down.
I got to sleep around 2am (like I have been for weeks)
This morning I still have lots of pressure, random stronger contractions,
nausea, and just REALLY down in the dumps.
Thankfully someone has my kids.
I plan on doing some more walking today since that's all that seems to alleviate the pressure.
In al honesty, I feel like a terrible mom.
Yesterday I just cried all day and asked the girls to leave me alone.
Then when they were gone last night I missed them terribly and felt terrible for sending them away.
This pregnancy has been very challenging.
It's not too much more difficult physically then the last two (since I seem to always labor for a month before I deliver), but emotionally.
I think it has to do with just taking care of 3 kids 2 & under while feeling like this.
35W 4D & still counting.
