Labor Watch Part 2

I just wanted to jot down a couple things for my own future reference. So this is going to be TMI, just a little heads up if you want to stop reading, I’d do it now. This past week, daily, I have had pain right under my shoulder blade where my ribs meet my spine. […]

Bump day week 36!

Hello cankles! This week I have started getting swollen ankles by the days end. It isn’t too bad yet but I do notice it. My back is also bothering me a little bit more as it is really starting to curve back. I have been drinking lots of water to try and keep hydrated and […]

Labor Watch Part 1

Yep, you read that title right. Yesterday I went to the bathroom as part of my morning ritual and saw that I had lost a large piece of brown mucus plug. About the size of my thumb from the first knuckle. I had some BH contractions that eventually got to 3 minutes apart and were […]

Bump day week 35!

So I am going to start this post out for apologizing for what you are about to read. I am going to dump my stress and feelings here and I hope that it doesn’t make this an awful post to read. Today has just been a long day and I am so ready to go […]

Bump day week 34!

My baby boy is the size of a melon at 4 and 3/4 pounds! He is still pretty active for as crowded as we are getting. I seem to have lost my appetite this week and I don’t really want to eat anything. There are days when I have to make myself pick something from […]

Bump day week 33!

Only 48 days(ish) to go! Baby brother is starting to run out of room in there. I had my NST Monday and it went smoothly; still no dilation but regular Braxton Hicks. I saw the nurse practitioner at my appointment Wednesday and she said that baby is passing his tests with flying colors so they […]

What’s In My Diaper Bag?

In my honest opinion, I don’t think you need much of anything for baby when you go to the hospital. The hospital/birthing center will usually provide you with everything that you need to get through those couple days that you stay. Diapers, wipes, formula (if you choose), binkie, a swaddle and even a little onsie. […]

Bump day week 32!

This week has been another pretty average week. My second NST went much more smoothly and I was in and out in just over an hour. I even waited for a room because OB was busy. They didn’t do any extra testing even though my contractions were still consistent. I am really anxious to hear […]

First Non Stress Test

Last Thursday I had my first NST. I went to radiology at 2 and got the biophysical profile done and then headed to the OB ward. My nurse hooked me up to the monitors and then started asking questions for my chart (height, weight, how many pregnancies, medical history blah blah blah). After we got […]

Bump day week 31!

Today I had a doctors appointment. It was one of those in and out ones. I saw the nurse practitioner instead of my doctor today because he was at the hospital. There wasn’t a whole lot to go over or check up on today so it was pretty fast. I got a note to get […]
