38 week check up

Well at my check up I found out that I was still 3 cm dilated, but have made a little progress from being 50% effaced to 75%:) Hoping that will be my last Appt with that Dr. until our newest baby arrives!lol

I'm still contracting obviously, and half the time not noticing or realizing it. I also have been having a weekly NST(none stress test). That is just where they monitor your baby's heart rate, and picks up any contractions you maybe having. And yep.. I had plenty of contractions show up today.

My Next appt. I have coming up is with my High Risk Dr., and it's on Thursday next week.. August 4th! I'll have my hospital bag in the car since she told me to bring it.. Just in case. And I plan on asking her to try to get me in to be induced that day or the next which will be a Friday. I'll be in the 39th week by then. And she told me she'd give me an induction date sometime with in 39 weeks at that appt. It'll just work out better for us if we can go ahead and do it that weekend as far as Dh's job goes with work and such.

Or guess this little girl could come before then?! Who knows.. We will see:D My sweet Dassah is actually spending the night with her Nana (my mama) tonight. So I better get off of here and get rested up while I can! Although if you knew me in real life.. you'd know I'll be eager to see her in morning.haha Can't help but miss her!

Good Night to you all!

A "scare" at 36 weeks 5 days


This was over a week ago on a Monday night. Me and My husband had already put Dassah down for the night. We were both feeling a little SO.. of course that lead to sex:D The problem came into play during sex. I suddenly felt Extremely Wet, and shortly after that hubby rather urgently said- HONEY YOUR BLEEDING:O! No Lie y'all this was A HUGE amount of Bright Red Blood on the mattress. NOT NORMAL to see when Pregnant. It reminded me of if I had just had a baby... kind of blood loss!

I immediately knew we needed to get to the Hospital ASAP! Thankfully I thought to tell dh to call someone to come over from my aunts house to stay with Dassah. (she lives next door.. Thank God) My aunt and cousin came running from their yard into ours in a flash! And we thankfully didn't have to worry about dassah at that point, she was in good hands.

The ride to the hospital was scary. My worst thoughts were- Did my placenta separate from the wall somewhere? OR the WORSE CASE in my mind at the time.. Dear Lord Please don't let it be that my placenta ruptured and I've already lost my baby. I didn't dwell on that last thought BUT yes it did pop into my mind.

When we go to the hospital they got us back there pretty quick. And Put me on a monitor... BABY GIRLS HEART BEAT WAS PERFECT:D And Guess what??? Nothing Wrong with baby or my uterus/placenta ex. However to My Surprise I was contracting and didn't know Felt like period type cramps from the bleeding to me. They Also informed me that I had Obviously Very Suddenly Dilated, and that Plus the intercourse had led to the bleeding. I basically went from Nothing to 3cm dilated and 50% effaced!

My contractions were coming steadily all night long. SO I stayed in L&D. They acted like I was going to have Her that NIGHT! I so wasn't ready... I didn't even have my camera. And Both our phone charges got left at the house:( To make a long story short I didn't dilate anymore, and they didn't want to give me anything that next morning to induce stronger contractions sicne I wasn't even 37 weeks quite yet. So I spent 1 more day in observation. And Got sent home with the instructions of pelvic rest and no sexual activity.

Since then no more bleeding and everything is normal with me. So YES we had a BIG SCARE with the Bleeding. But everything is fine. My only issue at this point is... That I won't know if I'm in labor since I didn't know I was contracting that night. And Scared that when I finally realize that I am in labor that I won't make it to the hospital that is 45 min away! SO as much as I never wanted my water to break at home with my 1st... IF I was to go into labor before we induce.. I really hope my water breaks SO I'll know for sure to head to the hospital ASAP! lol

I have a check up tomorrow. But not going to get my hopes up too high for more progress. But it wouldn't hurt my feelings at this point (As long as baby's lungs were ready) if I were to have her So We'll see.. either way NOT MUCH LONGER! And very thankful that OUR SCARE turned out OK:)

Going to bed now... up too late blogging. Hope I don't regret it tomorrow morning!

38 weeks and still counting...

Well this is WAY PAST DUE once But here goes. I'll try to fill everyone in a bit on a few things that has went on so far with this pregnancy.

If you remember at my Fetal Anatomy Scan.. it showed that 1 of baby's lateral/back ventricles on her brain was measuring a little bigger than then other. I went for my 1st High Risk Scan. And everything looked Great. Both lateral verticals were measuring 8ish mm. (anything below 1o is normal) So High Risk Dr. wanted to look again in about 6 weeks just to check on everything.
So I think that's what I last posted about concerning that.

On my 2nd high risk US... Both Ventricles had grown to a 10mm. So of course the Dr. wanted to see me again in 4 weeks to see if the continued to progress in growth. I went to my 3rd US and Thank God No More Growth! Both sides were still measuring the same in the 10ish mm range. So Dr said she'd see me one more time 4 weeks later on July 15th. At my 4th appt the Lateral ventricles still looked the same. (on the prominent side) Large end of normal. However the "3rd ventricle" showed up measuring at 10 mm, and we hadn't seen that before then. Basically All this Could Mean Nothing AT ALL.. Or be some.. Mild Ventriculomegaly.. in that case children usually see no side effects or have some mild developmental delays (most catch up in time from what I've read). OR the scary "bit" There could be something that we are not seeing on US right now, that we might not would be able to see until after she's born. SO with all that in mind we decided to Deliver at That Hospital. Its the Best Place for our baby if she were to have ANYTHING pop up after she's born. From as mild as some slight breathing issues to the extreme of an infant Nero Surgeon being called in. Don't let me scare you with all this... There likely isn't.. Anything Wrong. But I'll definitely feel better knowing we are where we should be (hospital wise) if the baby needs anything after she is born. BUT On a GOOD NOTE both of my Dr's I've been seeing this far think its most likely nothing:)

Ok So Since that last high risk US... The Dr. said that I can just continue to go to my check ups with my regular OB. (since its closer) And Scheduled an appt on AUG. 4th at the High risk clinic. Dr also said to bring my hospital bag that day because they could possibly induce that day. But regardless if not they would schedule induction within the next few days. I'll be over 39 week then. ( IF I EVEN MAKE IT TILL THEN) lol

SO INFO OVER LOAD.. I KNOW:/ Hope I haven't confused you too much. Only our family's know about this concerning the baby. We only told Dh's side about 2 months ago. Because Didn't won't to worry anyone.. Plus As I've said there's Just NO WAY we can tell anything at this point until after she's born. And don't want to have to explain to EVERYONE... when don't know what it means.. or if it means anything at all:P

My head can't take I will say that having Dassah probably has helped me not to get consumed in worry over this. She needs me, and fills up my day. I can only imagine how I would've dealt with this if it were my 1st baby and I had nothing to focus on. We're still Believing that everything will be OK no matter what happens. Please Continue to keep this Precious little baby in your Prayers! It means allot.

Alright I have another post lingering in my head... but I think I should separate it from this

Take Care My Bloggy Friends.. I may not post much, but I'm reading your blogs most every day:)
