No baby yet!
After definitely losing my mucus plus (all I'm gonna say is GROOOOOSS! LOL) yesterday morning, my Braxton Hicks contractions picked up. And a dull, steady period-like cramp kept up most of the day. But by evening, everything calmed down again.
So at this point, it is looking like we won't have any baby appearance till at least tomorrow, my induction date! (and of course depending on long my labor goes, maybe not till Wednesday?).
My low back has been steadily hurting for the past couple of days and sleeping is so uncomfortable (even though I'm still managing TO sleep in between my pee breaks) and I can barely sleep on my right side anymore from the throbbing in my hip. So I've been napping when/if I can.
Today I went with Daryl to his doctor's appointment. We found out some more info about his medicines (changing some, getting new ones) and one bit of info I was NOT happy to hear. He was recently changed to a new blood pressure med about a month ago and this medicine is brand new to the market. Anyway, today at the office, the RN told Daryl he is the THIRD patient she's seen who has been hospitalized with acute Pancreatitis approximately a month after going on this new medication! So she immediately took him off of it and switched to something else. Also she referred him to a Gasteronentoligist (or however that's spelled) AND I asked about a dietitian since we now have to make sure Daryl eats not only a diabetic diet but low fat/low cholesterol. Your pancreas is what helps regulate your sugar so since Daryl AND his pancreas are still recup'ing, his blood sugar levels have still been all over the board. He is giving himself insulin once a day now and I'm trying my best to find healthy things for us to eat.
In addition, since he is anemic, he gets very dizzy/light headed and tires out easily. So needless to say, BOTH of us have been napping/resting when we can. I feel horribly lazy cuz it's driving me insane that there is still stuff I want to do but I just can't.
But again on a good note, tomorrow is the day!!! I am so thankful and excited and can't wait to meet our little boy!!
