Patsy, you're only one day away! How are you feeling? Are you nervous at all? I'm not so much nervous or scared about becoming a mom...it's the giving birth part that freaks me out. I'm such a pansy when it comes to pain...I just hope I don't completely overreact or lose it


My family are all going out of town this Saturday and they'll be gone for two weeks. I'm a little scared about being alone that long. I don't really think anything will happen between 31-33 weeks but it's still a little nerve wracking to have them so far away. I have lots of other family and friends in town that I know are just a phone call away but...I'm still freaking out a little. Silly, I know It's times like this when it really sucks to be a single mom
Well, crap. I still haven't made up my mind about pain medications! I meant to ask my OB today and totally forgot.
Nubain drip... or epidural?... gah! another decision.

I'm good. More mobile than I was last week, how weird is that? It's gotta be how he lays. Last week I had a ton of pain in my hips that was interchangeable with gallbladder attacks and marshmallow cankle ankles... today, I'm fine. People kept asking me when I was due while I was out today and going when I said "Wednesday."
I've had a super great, spectacular pregnancy though so it's nice to go out this way


I'd be nervous about being by myself, too. Is there a friend that can come have a perpetual sleepover with you? Maybe we should all chip in and buy one of those "Med Alert" things you see on TV for the elderly... ya know, just in case...

As little pain as possible...that's all I ask for. I'm gonna assume the epidural will help me accomplish that goal

I'm so glad you're feeling better! I know you were having a lot of pain last week, especially with your gallbladder acting up. Wednesday it is! How exciting!

I thought about asking someone to stay with me but in the end, I was too embarassed. Although I have had a few of my guy friends offer to come stay over but I think that has much more to do with my dad's built in bar and the pool in the backyard than concern for me "Med Alert"... I do FEEL elderly these days. I've been moving more slowly and less gracefully than usual...my belly is really starting to hinder movement. Guess that means I am just that much closer to meeting my little guy

I didn't have a drip, but I did have a single shot of nubain in the butt. it really helped me to be able to relax between contractions... I had pitocin also (as this seems to be what your plan is too). I thought it was totally doable. I really didn't want the epidural though! I wanted to be able to get up and move around and not have a catheter! Though looking back on it, I don't think I got up after the shot until after I pushed her out and was being transfered to post partum.

Good luck with you decision! He'll be here before you know it.

I'm leaning towards the nubain drip. They said I'd have it through the IV, no mention of a shot in my butt! eek. I'm not fond of anyone looking at my butt.. though I suppose childbirth will cure most of my modesty issues, huh?

I really, really, really don't want an epidural either. Really, really don't.

We'll see, I guess. Thanks so much for your input-- I have a very high tolerance for pain but know pitocin usually makes labor harder so I was worried about that. Glad to here, on a personal account, that it was doable sans-epidural.

I'll do some more research tomorrow probably but I think you sealed the deal with Nubain for me!!



Veronica- I can see being embarassed but at least think about it some more-- it would be much more embarassing to fall and have to call an ambulance or eat your words if something happens and there is no one around to help... At least vow to keep your cell phone tied on a chain around your neck, like a younger-hipper version of "Med Alert"..

I'm going to go finish the Pirates of the Caribbean marathon DH and I have had going... we're almost done with 2, I might end up with #3 in the hospital Wednesday!

Patsy-it sounds like your bag might be complete-I can't think of anything off the top of my head that you might be missing. I've just got last minute items I have to add to my bag (like a little makeup, razor, etc.)

I had the epidural with Madeline and plan to have it with this one as well. I'm more afraid of the pain of labor than I am of the poke in the back! I don't know that I ever got the option of the Nubain shot (I don't remember it being mentioned with either pregnancy).

Veronica- I totally get the not wanting to be alone right now! I would feel the same way. DH had to go out of town for a few trips around that time with this pregnancy and I was so worried while he was gone. I'm just glad that are no more trips planned until well after my due date! Now if I can just wait till Monday when my mom gets here to take care of Madeline for me, it will all be good!!

I kept dreaming last night that the baby was coming in the next day or two!! Then I woke up I guess around 4ish and could not get back to sleep, my mind just wouldn't turn off. I have had this problem several times lately. Anybody else this late in the pregnancy experiencing some insomnia?

It's nice to hear about the differences in pain medication from everyone. For some reason in my circle of friends at home, the only way to go is no meds. I'm sure it's doable, but I'm still gonna want something!

I received a coupon from BRU yesterday in the mail. Receive a $5 gift card when you register at any BRU or TRU store between 5/1 and 8/31. Of course, we've already registered so it has no use to us. If anyone would like it, let me know and I can get it out to you in the mail.

Piecey~ I had a nubain drip with my 1st and 2nd. It made me really groggy and totally out of it so I had them turn it off and I went without drugs after that.... and the 2nd one I was on pitocin as well. With my 3rd I said NO nubain and got the epidural. I labored for 17 hours before I got it and ended up delivering within an hour of getting it... that was the best hour of all 3 labors for me.

Best of luck tomorrow morning!!

Yes, that is true about the groggy feeling. Funny how much you forget about labor. I only had one shot though- so by the time I was pushing, I was not groggy anymore- just when I went from 4cm- to fully dilated!!!

My original plan was not to have any meds at all though after more than 48 hours of labor (BACK labor at that), I just was so exhausted that I needed a little something to help me to relax to have enough energy to push that baby out. By the way, pushing was the EASY part! totally!

one thing for the hospital bag!

Piecey, (and anyone else) one thing you may want to pick up for your hospital bag is a sleep mask. It is totally the best thing I've had with me. Hospital rooms, even real spiffy LDR rooms are never dark. I find it hard to sleep if it's not pretty dark. So bring a sleep mask.

I'm finally back! And I'm a mommy!!!

After 12 hours of 'cramps, not contractions' from a failed induction, an emergency c-section and 6 weeks of crazy breastfeeding issues, I finally have the time to come here and post some pictures of my amazing little guy!! Mr James Dawson (though we're calling him Dawson or JD) Born on April 14 at 11:37am. 10lbs, 22"!












He's the best kid ever. I seriously couldn't ask for anything more. He's so calm, and friendly, and just the cliche bundle of joy. And freakin cute, if I do say so myself!

Thanks everyone for the welcome.I have been so sick this time-with my 1st I had morning sickness that was more managable and went away by 16 weeks.This time it is all day and it is so bad I can't do things.I am laying down all the time and feel horrible.Even talking makes me feel worse.I am taking progesterone because I was spotting at 6 weeks and my numbers were a little on the low side so I don't know if the extra hormones are causing it but I go to my doctor today and am going to talk to him about it.Even my daughter looks at me and says go lay down mom I will do that for you cause I look so horrible! It is hard for me to not do everything-I am a clean freak so it is hard to not keep things spotless(though I must say the rest of my family seems happier with out me on their case to not make a mess because I just cleaned!)Anyway,we haven't told everyone yet because of the spotting in the beginning we wanted to wait-I am 34(35 in Sept)so I know my risks are higher than last time.I saw some of you guys talking about pain meds-I was enduced with my 1st and had an epidural but I am not sure this time if I get one again.I didn't like it at all,and after I had alot of pain in my back.It took 2 tries for them to get it so I don't know if that is why.Good luck to all the moms close to delievering and thanks for listening to me whine!

We are taking my son for his first birthday December 5-11. Any ideas or do you think we need to cancel?

Congrats!!! I just saw your name on the list! My first 2 boys are close together---it can get crazy at times (meaning ALL the time), but they are soooo close! They refuse to sleep in separate beds, it's so cute.

As far as your December trip goes, as long as you aren't having any preg. complication, I say go for it! The weather will be awesome and James will have a blast! It will be your special trip with him before the baby comes!
