I made it another week. It was a rough one for my husband, because he had his tonsils removed and sinus surgery last Friday. He has been on liquid lortab every 4 hours and says it's the worst pain he has ever dealt with. He has been meaning to get his tonsils removed for a long time, but there was never a good time to do it. After his last sinus infection a couple of months ago, he finally decided to pull the trigger during this small window before our baby's birth and while we are still have COBRA for our health insurance.
My Braxton Hicks seem to have settled down since I have been sitting around the house alot more with him. But yesterday, I did a bunch of errands all day and cleaning up around the house and they came back with a vengeance last night while sitting on the couch watching TV. Baby W was moving around so much while I was trying to go to sleep last night I had to move to the couch and literally rock my body to sleep to make him stop moving. Lots of jabs to the bladder now and I can feel his little hands fluttering so low in my pelvis.
I had a scary dream last night that I lost my mucus plug and I was bleeding. I really hope I do not go into labor until my husband has recovered from his tonsillectomy.
I saw my OB today and she checked my cervix and it's still firmly closed, so that's good news. Also she signed off on my birth plan - whoohoo! She said she is scanning it into the computer, so the nurses at the hospital will be able to see it once I go in for labor and delivery.
It really seems surreal that I am getting this close to meeting him!
