I was doing okay after my scary (almost) fall on Saturday. I stayed on the couch (for the most part) for the remainder of the day.
But then Sunday night I started having pain. And I thought they might be Braxton Hicks? Although it stayed constant, it didn't come and go like i thought contractions do? I researched BH and it said that some women don't feel any pain with them and some women do feel pain. And that they usually start around 28 weeks. We are a little over 29 weeks. My stomach did feel tight too. So, as we watched the Grammy's I walked around, changed positions, took a hot shower, laid with a heating pad. Nothing seemed to help. But today I am feeling fine. So maybe it was just digestive issues? Who knows. I'm worried I won't know when I am really in labor because let me tell ya, this shit was painful last night. Not like crampy pain...but PAIN. And then I had a nightmare last night that I woke up bleeding and there was lots of tissue and clots. You better believe I was scared to go to the bathroom after that to check. Everything is fine and I am feeling better today. But geez.
I'm kind of excited for my OB appt on Wednesday. I'm still with the old OB for two more weeks. And even though I have o do the glucose test (ick!) I'm just going to be happy to be back there and for them to check me out. Check my urine and check the baby's HB on doppler. I haven't been there since January 4th! Although, I have been to a variety of emergency rooms/urgent cares/primary doctor's office. So it's not like I haven't been seen at all.
I'm not sure if my new Advair medicine is helping me yet. I'm a little worried that no medicine is even coming out of the thing. I used it it years and years ago, and I remember back then when I would inhale I could sort of taste the medicine/powder. Now, with this one I taste/feel nothing coming out. I'm pretty sure I'm doing it right, but haven't felt any drastic breathing changes yet.
I was hoping maybe the pain I was feeling last night was growing pains or something. And it made me happy to think my stomach was stretching because she is growing! That's what I'd like to think. I did notice recently too that my stretch marks on my stomach are getting worse and that they are travelling higher up on my belly. That means my stomach is growing for the baby right? :) Hope so.
