of stupid contractions! I can't take 10 more weeks of having darn painful contractions. I woke up at 1 this morning having contractions that were about 5 minutes apart. They stayed that way until about 3. I didn't even bother going into L&D this time. I have an appointment Thursday so I am going to discuss everything with my doctor and see what he thinks we should do. I do know that if I go 10 more weeks while still having contractions that I will not have the energy to push this baby out.

I just needed to vent guys. I'm tired and cranky. My feet are swollen and I'm sleep deprived. All of a sudden my belly is huge too. I need to post some new pics so you guys can see the difference.

I can take tyelnol but it doesn't help. If he could just give me something for the pain or maybe some muscle relaxers so I can sleep I would be okay. I may see if he will go ahead and check me again though just to make sure that the contractions aren't dilating me now. I don't want her to come this early at all. I'm not ready. I will be 30 weeks Friday. I want to go at least 7 more weeks before she comes. If I get any worse I will probably have to leave work though. I am planning on working for six more weeks. I really need to so we can pay a few things off but if I can't do then I can't do it. I really just needed to vent. I don't know how my mom dealt with this. She did the same thing with me and my little brother.

take a deep breath and let it out slowly you have waited for this lil one and you can do this ok just try relaxing techniques see what works for you. music worked for me id put my headphones on and turn on robert miles its new age music but it helped alot.

I haven't tried anything like music. I basically just breathe through the contractions which usually works. I'm just afraid that I'm gonna be so tired by the end that I won't have what it takes to get her out. I have waited a long time and I do want her to be here but not just yet. Her little lungs need to mature and she needs ot get a bit bigger yet.

That stuff doesn't do a whole lot for me. I might ask for it though. It's been so long since I've taken anything strong that it might actually work.

Tylenol PM was my lifesaver for sleep. Esp. the nights S/O was away reporting for his weekend and 2 wks...I know it's hard but try your hardest to relax, that baby needs to bake for 10 more weeks...

AWWW!! I'm sooo sorry you're going through this!!!

If it makes you feel any better, I can't sleep AT ALL!! I lay on one side, my hips feel like they've cracked in half. I lay on the other, it's the same thing.

Nothing helps...pillows, nothing.

We're soo close in due dates!! I can't WAIT to see your new belly pics!!!!
I just took some 31 week pics last night!!!
