Hello all!

I have finally finished writing my birth story, and wanted to share it with you all.

I'm just going to post a link to my personal journal, so venture on over and read it there. (Fair warning, it contains details about a vaginal birth, occuring in a hospital with minimal interventions.)

i didnt cut since it was one small picture, if its a problem i apologize and i will fix it.

anyway - i want to know how far along i "look" because my doc and i have a difference of opinion (i am going with my LNMP - he with an EDD based on my first ultrasound).... so, ladies, how many weeks would you guess i am? this picture was taken today, by the way.

i had my 36 week apt. yesterday and baby is now deciding that hes comfy in there i think and doesn't want to come out. my first did that as well was anxious to come out at 7 & 8 months, but once 9 months hit he decided he didn't want to come out anymore! i just hope he comes out really soon because my foots killing me.. its getting worse everyday. i have physical therapy for it now and i was told it won't get any better if its getting worse still since its been over a week now since i hurt it. i need ibrouphen for it they say and its swollen on the bottom of my foot and the therapist thinks i might of fractured my heal and i tore the ligament in my arch. i'm really starting to hate crutches too. i can't even limp on it now it hurts so much and my percocets don't do a thing.. but let me sleep. the only time i feel no pain is when i'm in the warm bath. anyways though i thought i'd post a few tummy pictures just for the fun of it too from 31 to 36 weeks.

I got an email from my aunt this morning about a problem with the Simplicity 4-in-1 Winnie the Pooh bassinet (model number 3112DOH6).  A baby died in one after she "slipped out the side of the bassinet feet first and had become trapped with her chest in a 4-inch gap between the railing and the top of the mattress."

I got this model from WalMart, but thankfully it is still in the box, so I should be able to easily return it.  I'm normally not prone to get overly excited about recalls, but a 4" gap seems like a recipe for disaster to me.  It is really too bad, it was a very nice looking bassinet.

i had my 33 week OB appointment today and starting now i have to do NST's 2 times a week along with seeing the OB once a week on fridays after my NST that morning since i'm having trouble getting him to move somedays 10 times in a 2 period. i'm still having alot of contractions especially when i have to get up to do something, but i don't pay attention to them anymore unless there painful or like period like cramps. in 3 weeks hes taking me off procardia for contractions and will let me go. his goals to get me to 36 weeks since right now everyday hes in me is 4 days less he'd be in the NICU he said. i want to make it to 37 though not 36. so to think anytime after october 10th my baby boy could be here. i have my NST's every tuesday and friday mornings. anyways though it's time to make some lunch for me and my son then off to watch the wiggles, elmo, doodlebops, or diego whatever one he picks to watch in my bed.

i'm seeing my OB tomorrow for a regular check up and plan on telling him about this, but til then i was wondering if any of you have ever had this happen. today thru out the day i've felt out of breath here and there like i just ran up a flight of stairs and i haven't i'm on bedrest so i don't do anything as it is. so i went to the drug store by me to check my BP since i was curious what its at. i'm on BP medication right now for high BP. the first time i took it it was 108/over 60 something the 2nd time it was 96/42 and then i took it once more and it was 107/over 60 something again. is that to low of BP? tia!

i only have 5 more weeks bedrest to go with 4 weeks done so far.. i'm almost halfway off it.. october 17th can't come quick enough. it'll be nice then not being confined to my bed or couch all day long. i want to be able to take my 2 year old out to do stuff before the baby comes since it'll be hard when the new baby comes at first. anyways though before i go i thought i'd post some new tummy pictures for the fun of it.

my OB decided to keep me on the atenolol 100mg once a day bc the benefits of the med out weigh the risks.. last week my BP was 138 over 90 something. only thing is i have to take that med in the morning when i wake up and i take it. i'll be up for a hour and then i feel like i need another 8 hours of sleep after that.. it does help with me being on bedrest and all and making my day go faster since i'm sleeping all day. the only problem is though i have a 2 year old at home who doesn't go to daycare thursday and friday so i have to be awake those days to entertain him and play.. i was wondering what are some other BP meds out there that don't make you extremely tired like that?  i'm already on procardia 60mg, but thats to stop contractions.i see my OB on thursday for a BP/med check and plan on talkng to him then about changing it bc i can't be sleeping when my sons here. tia!

i'm also extremely bored on bedrest right now and looking for more mommy friends that are due around me! feel free to add me if you want. ♥
