Hey everyone. My due date is oct.29 2004. My stomach is really hard sometimes because of the baby and sometimes just because is this normal and could this possibly mean I m getting closer to having my bundle of joy?
This is what I found for you.
Just when you think you can't possibly get any bigger and you'll never get off the couch without a crane, you may experience the following symptoms that let you know the time is near. Note that these symptoms don't occur in any particular order, and several may occur within the same day or a few days of each other.
An increase in vaginal discharge, possibly brownish or pinkish in color
"engagement," or the sensation of the baby dropping lower into your pelvic cavity
braxton hicks contractions or "practice" contractions that feel like a tightening or hardening of the uterus with possible mild cramps
slight weight loss
dull pain low in your back that comes and goes
loose and frequent bowel movements with cramping
sensation of building pressure or cramping in your pelvic/rectal area
a feeling of restlessness/increased energy, or marked sense of fatigue
softening, thinning, or dilation of cervix (as shown by doctor's internal exam)
Have you had your burst of energy yet? And if you aren't already in labor...Try eating a green apple! I know it sounds weird but my grandma had 7 kids and she knows!!! My mom had her burst of energy...She felt pressure down below my grandma made her sit on a wooden chair and then my grandpa gave her a green apple! She went to the bathroom to go # 2 and then the labor came and I was as healthy as can be! A month and 6 days overdue!! Old myths like that really do work!
Haha!! What can we say...We just didn't wanna come outta there!!She couldn't have me vaginally though...I was caught on her rib or something so it was either break my collar bone (which makes me think I wasn't turned the right way?), break my moms rib, or do a c-section! And that was it...7lbs 2oz , 5 inches of black hair, and they got me mixed up with an asian baby that was next to me in the nursery...They found out about the mix up when they saw that it was an asian boy baby
I have no idea if they are mild contractions, my stomach and back have been aching for the like past couplke of days today is my due date and so I really really want it all to happeni dont think that the baby is even head down anymore silly thing wont styay in one spot...Ive tried almost everything to make labor start...I need it to come!!!
Well you can
take baths (sit in water)
take a walk
eat green apples haha
talk to your belly (it sounds weird but some believe it works)
instead of sitting on like a couch or something, I know it sounds uncomfy, but sit on hard flat surfaces
....Those may help ya....
Were you guys really a month overdue or do you suppose the doctors were off with the due date and thought that your moms were further along than they actually were? Hmmmm I puzzle myself to my own questions...Could be possible you think?
Lol I have been doing all of those (except the green apples) for a long time...I have baths cause I cant stand in the shower...Feet go numb
sit on a hard wood computer chair
talk to my belly cause im crazy lol
have sex well we all know that I obviously like otherwise I wouldnt be like this lol (sorry)
and walk when I can (feet swell and go numb)
if also tried:
nipple stimulation(didnt work just made them very sore)
massageing my belly
eating something that makes you need to go to the bathroom
