So this week I am 35 weeks. I am super sleepy all the time and I can't rest very well because baby moves a lot at night and also the belly is starting to feel very uncomfy...last night I had to build a fortress of pillows around my belly so that when i turned sides it would land on a pillow...otherwise, it hurt to lay it flat on the bed. By the end of the day my ankles look like they have have tires around them and I can't fit any shoes. The heartburn is the worst ever and tums aren't really helping. its constant and all day. Sorry to say it, but I have served this kid his eviction notice... he must go! I know that it will be hard when he is finally here, but right now I am welcomin the feeling of having my body back...or at least most of it.
Last week, I had to spend the night in the hospital because he wasnt moving during my biophysical...then they sent me to Maternity Triage where they did a non stress test. He passed the test but I was having steady contractions (that I couldn't feel) every two minutes and I am dialated a centemeter already. The doc wanted to observe me overnight and repeat the biophysical the next morning. Needless to say after causing all this trouble, the boy started boucing around consistently. He is a little trickster indeed!
I've decided that at this point, I'm ready to meet this kid. Depending on how my biophysicals go, they will induce me around 38 - 39 weeks (last week of the month). I am afraid that is tooooooo long of a wait... I am wondering how I will get through these next three weeks.
Any advice on how to cope with the last weeks? Its beating me up!
