Combined Threads - Formerly Officially A BOY!! + Water Broke!

I'm sure Mike's going to realllly appreciate this. So he and I are officially trying for our kiddo #2. We had unprotected sex last night, which marks the only other time we've EVER had unprotected sex. We grew up freaking out about unplanned pregnancies so we feel good about being able to plan our two. Don't get me wrong, surprises are good too - but I kinda don't like being surprised hehe. Especially since I'm diabetic so I have to come off a lot of medication. So I'm checking my blood pressure everyday and sugar. Anyway - if it's anything like Catherine, I'll be pregnant by next week O_o

Cross your fingers!

Well he's hiccuping and breathing all good inside me and his head is friggin down low, but they can't tell yet if he's in the canal. It's still pretty early in the grand scheme of things - I'm only 36 weeks right now. Estimated time of arrival is approximately 2 weeks - week 38. I have my new OB appt with my new civi doc (yeah, at 36 weeks it's my new ob appt /rolls eyes) on wednesday (tomorrow) and hopefully she'll tell us when we're going to do the amnio - either this week (i doubt it) or after she gets back from her little vaca - week 38. I'm guessing they'll check his lungs via the amnio on week 38 just to be sure and then induce me.

This civi hospital lets you use your phone, just on vibrate, but I don't think it has wireless so I doubt it'll be play by play unless Jello posts for me. I'll be calling/texting Vex when I squirt him out though =)

Ok after my OB appointment today the plan is this:

Tuesday 1/22 I am scheduled for my amnio to check on his lungs. If all goes well...
Thursday 1/24 - Inducement begins and hopefully that same day - David Paul Rosario Hartmann will squirt out kicking and screaming!

He weighs approximately 7 pounds and 11 ounces today O_o Definitely going to be my little fat boy =)

Well I was 10lbs 11oz, Mike was 9+lbs so Catherine being 7lbs 14oz was a surprise to us. We just got nervous - they originally wanted to wait until next thursday to even do the amnio but we asked why the other doc in the office couldn't (my doc now is going out of town for 1 week - thursday to thursday). Anyway, I'm not looking forward to a needle in my uterus but keep your fingers crossed that he's all ready to come out =)

I've been having horrible lower back pain since about 8pm last night. I didn't go into labor naturally with Catherine so I'm not sure what this is - but it hurts like fucking hell =/

Whoo boy, sounds like my labor experience from start to finish; lower back hell. Luckily it started at 6AM and was done at 11:17AM; hopefully yours will be short and sweet (well, ya) also!!

Yea...sounds like back labor. I had that with Stef.

Or those fun Braxton Hicks contractions that make you wish you were about the squeeze the kid out. When I went into labor I had this really weird feeling like something had changed and that was the day CeCe would be born.....at 4 in the morning. She wasn't born until 9:45 the next night =\ I don't really remember much about the pain, low back and around the front like a band was squeezing me. But I was so out of it by the time they had me pushing it's all a blur of pain and drugs. They didn't even give me an epidural til we were preparing for the c-section.

I hope it is labor I'm evil like that and want to see your baby so badly lol!

I had back labor mainly due to Alison's position. She was long and had her head pressed into my hip/sciatic nerve. My back killed me about the last month until they finally caved and did an ultrasound to show her size.

So THAT's what happens when you forget to drink enough water. /whistles. I went in with the worst labor pains and come to find out, I hadn't been drinking enough water. In fact I plum forgot to drink any =x I usually drink water at work, but at home I just drank milk and had 1 cup of coffee =x So the hospital sent me home with an ambient sleeping pill and WOW those things kick in fast. I've been waking up hourly drinking tons of water and the pain has pretty much subsided.

Sheesh.

Amnio is in about 5 hrs. Yeah for more pain.
Lolanae 15 years ago
I was going to ask you if you were staying hydrated. Glad everything is okies, good luck with the Amnio!

If it comes back that he is baked to completion, are they going to deliver him soon or wait more?
ROzbeans 15 years ago
If he's cooked, they'll induce this thursday...thank god.
