Oh y'all I am so uncomfortable! Bella is tipping the scales at 5 lbs and a couple of ounces and shes so long, a good 20 inches! It might sound average for a 34 weeker but it makes me terribly uncomfy. Im only 5 feet tall and she is constantly kicking my ribs, my doc told me to be careful when sitting because she has already signifigantly bruised and possibly cracked my lower right rib! Nobody thought I would make it this long and now im praying every day that I go into labor. Im not sure how much longer I can hold her, im also worried about delivery and how I am going to get her out if she gets much bigger!

Oh I hope that bella comes sometime soon. She has also dropped which makes it really uncomfortable for me, just getting in and out of the shower is a tedious task now!

hey be carefull doin that, I fell during my pregnancy in the tub, and right on the baby too. Do you know if you are heving her vaginal, or c-section (thats what I had), natural or epidural? I suggest a spinal, they are so painless, that u dont even know when they do it! I'v heard things about epidurals, so be educated! Anyway keep us posted on how you are, and when u have her, cuz u really got me interested now! Good luck with the upcomming event.... You'll need it!

I am having her vaginally and with no pain medicine, except staydol or nubain. Honestly I just cant pay for an epidural and I have been in the hospital so many times in my short life that I am very resistant to any medication. When I went in for pre-term labor they gave me demerol to try to stop my contractions. They gave me a dose that supposedly would have knocked a grown man out, it did not work, then they proceeded to give me 2 more doses of the same magnitude! The funny thing was, 10 minuets after giving me the medicine I got up by myself and went to the bathroom because I was not going to use the bed pan or the portable potty that they provided for me. Lol, my nurse came in and freaked out! So I think it would be awful for me to pay for the epidural and have to go through the pain of having a needle stuck in my back, and then have the thing not work! Of coarse, these are only my wishes! If I had to have a c-section I most definantly would! Infact I will most likely do whatever the doctor says, I just like to think that im the one in control. Hense the reason I have so much fun with steen! Lmao

Hey you know about medicade dont you? I had pregnancy medicade, and now my daughter is on it. I'm so happy that I got on it bacause when I got the bill it was over 21 thousand dollars! .... Not to scare you or anything! Anyway if you think u can do it on ur own... More power to u! I wish I couldve, but I couldnt work during my pregnancy cuz of coplications, and my husband is not from this country so he cant legally work, although he has a job, hes not paid much because of his status. I work now (at a daycare) so my daughter is the only one on it. I'm so happy that there are things like medicade to help women out.

Yeah steen has no idea! :lol:

Oh god jen I know exactly how you feel. Trey is 5 1/2 lbs and i'm 34 1/2 weeks. At the doc's today they said he's a lil large (well no duh!!!) i'm sick of being preggers i'm so ready for this lil boy to come out, I don't think I can wait another 5 weeks. I just wanna tie my own shoes and shave my bikini area-lol or at least see it.

I actually went to the doctor today and my doctor said that she could touch the top of bella's head! I am dilated a bit and soon after my visit I started to bleed like a period! I freaked out and my mom yelled at a few people so that we could talk to a doctor because the office was closed. The doc on call said that it was most likely because my cervix is open and when she did the internal exam she torn it a little because she wasnt expecting that kind of dilation. Its not anything significant just enough to cause a little bleeding. So hopefully soon I will be having this little girl! My membranes are still intact.
