I think I am going to start naming Tuesday's, "Feel Bad Tuesday's" because again yesterday, I felt bad. I woke up several times on Monday night with contractions, a few of them were VERY painful and woke me out of a deep sleep. I could not get comfortable and I had a nasty, middle back ache. I was a little reassured since my backache was in the middle of my back & not my lower... But, I still felt terrible nonetheless. I took some Tylenol that did not even TOUCH the pain.
I woke up when Dustin went to work because I just couldn't stand to toss and turn in bed anymore. I ate some breakfast, drank some water, took my procardia and laid back down. At one point, before the procardia, my contractions were pretty regular & intense. I drank more water and laid on my left side and it eventually subsided.
I tossed around the idea of going into Labor & Delivery all morning, but as soon as the medicine kicked in, the contractions stopped. I have no idea what brought them on, I imagine the interrupted sleep. That is not going to get any better unfortunately.
I am so big and so awkward. I can not turn in bed on my own. I can barely get up to go to the bathroom. I am ready to have these babies, but I just want to avoid the NICU. At 35 weeks, they can be delivered in Princeton with no Neonatal ICU. Just a few more days I NEED them to hang around.
I have another doctor appointment next Thursday, April 30th. It feels like forever away, but of course, if I need to go in sooner, L & D is only a few minutes away.
