Soooo i went to work at 11. they put me in the kitchen today so i got a bit overheated lol. i tried to keep drinking water but we just got soo busy.  i finally went on break at 345 and started having contractions. which i thought were just braxton  hicks, but they kept coming, and coming, and coming. so i asked to have a little bit longer to hydrate up before i went back to work. i ended up drinking like a gallon of water and having contractions that were 4 mintues apart. (pain about a 6  on the 1-10 scale) so at like 6 o'clock my manager said that she doesnt think its going to get any better  and that i should just go. so i called DH and he came and picked me up. he grabbed my delivery bag and everything and we headed over to the hospital (i begged him not to take me). of course he text and called a million family and friends just to warn them that tonight would be the night. at triage they hook me up to monitors to check baby and contractions. they were about 5 mintues apart, baby sounded great. she checked my cervix which was still only 1cm but babies head was right there. so they sent me on an hour walk around the hospital, a friend of mine showed up for some support. after all that walking we went back to triage and she hooked me up, checked my cervix. no change! but my contractions were 3 minutes apart! i was like you've got to be kidding me, im stomping around for an hour and in all this pain and theres nothing to show for it. darn it. by the time i got home the contractions had pretty much stopped. so that was the end of my wonderful night. i went to bed around 10 and im up now at 5. after waking several times, i just want my baby girl! :( well i have 3 days off of work to walk.

worked 8-4 today. was on my feet from 8-2 then i sat on a stool on and off for 2 hours the rest of my shift. i am in so much pain. it feels like my pubic bone is splitting in half. my yoga ball didn't help with the pain, probably just made it worse. im tired, getting a cold, and just feeling overall horrible. ive been have contractions since i got off of work. they are really uncomfortable but still only braxton hicks because they are irregular and only felt in the front of my abdomen. ive been drinking lots of water, its not helping and just making me get up to pee, which *****. i just want to be done. :(

ligament pain



forgot to post this the day of so i guess i'll just update now. got to see my actual docotr today but ended up waiting hour and 45 min because he was so behind in his appointments :(. i was already exhausted because i had only slept 4 hours last night so when he finally came in the exam room i didn't really care that i was there anymore. he checked heartbeat which is good and measured belly, good too. he asked me if i wanted my cervix to be checked this week or if i wanted to wait until next week. i told him if it wasn't necessary then he doesn't have to do it. im pretty sure he was just trying to get my appointment over and done with since there were other people he needed to see. oh well. i guess i just have to wait until i see the nurse practitioner next week to see if i've progressed at all. doc says he'll be in the hospital the next few weeks so its nice to know he'll most likely be there to deliver Britton. after next week i only have 2 more appointments (with the doc) before my due date.

oh i'm also having that ligament pain (burning/stinging) under my right breast again. its worse then ever.

i think i may have worked myself a little too hard. i got up several times during the night but ended up getting up at 10 and started cleaning. i scrubbed my tiles floors by hand. sitting the whole time so i didnt think it would cause any discomfort or anything. then i mopped up all the dirt and stuff. took a little break and went to the grocery store to pick up a few things. came home and relaxed for 30min then sprayed the carpet with some carpet cleaner i bout (used gloves and opened all the windows to keep it ventilated). then dh and i went to meet some friends at olive garden. thats when i started feeling contractions a lot and a lot of pain/discomfort in my lower abdomen. it seemed like every 10min i was having contractions, but it ended up calming down about half way through dinner. still having a lot of pelvic pressure and some cramping. no spotting or anything, still ahvent lost my mucous plug either. so until that happens or i have spotting i shouldn't be worried right? i dont work until 3pm tomorrow so im going to take it easy before work just incase.
but im definately feeling like theres something going on down there, maybe i'm dilating more? i guess we'll find out at my next appointment.
