I am always leery of taking medications…I take vitamins and herbs and try to find ANY other way to cure my ailments…..I never unnecessarily pop pills and always get on K even if she takes a few too many t.ylenol….but boy am I thankful for these antibiotics right now. It had gotten so out of control….I was about ready to lose it! I take my third dose of Z.ithromax (Z-Pak) tonight and am starting to feel a little better. They kick in pretty fast. My eye gunk has drastically diminished, and my sore throat isn’t quite as severe. I still hate that I’m taking them, seeing as I had to take antibiotics at the beginning of my pregnancy too – for strep. Ultimately though, I REALLY needed them, so what can you do. Thanks for all the get-well wishes guys….I think it helped! I am so thankful my boy held off too. I was actually really worried he wouldn’t! Now that I am starting to feel a bit better, I give this boy permission to join us!
Last night I had cramping that lasted about a 1/2 hour. It was more uncomfortable than painful, but I found myself rocking in bed….until I fell asleep. I don’t know what that was. I’m having more BH contractions today, but still no real sign that labour is about to start. I just feel “crampy”….almost like how you do before you start your period. I feel that Wee One is getting pretty big too…his movements feel more like shifting now….I can’t imagine he has much room in there! He has dropped so low, I find myself holding my tummy up when I walk!
Tomorrow is 40 weeks. I can’t believe it. Well, there’s still a chance he’ll come on his due date. We shall see. Wednesday is our next midwife appointment….if we make it till then. I wonder if you can dilate beyond 3cm without feeling any pain!? Curious to see if my cervix has effaced any further, and if our little boy has dropped to an even lower station. Updates to come.
