Pregnancy Update

I seriously do not want to get pregnant ever again.  As much as I'd love my own daughter, I cannot do this again.

Last night, when I took off the "belly squisher" I started having regular contractions again & was in quite a bit of pain.  (Felt like I'd been working out & was sore.)  Also the pain in my ribs was more intense. :(

Then, about 2 hours later when I got into bed, the baby was going nuts.  My entire belly was rolling & shaking and was sore.  It felt like 3 or 4 babies in there, not just one!  Tim and I both put our hands on my stomach & we were feeling strong jabs & kicks and lots of tightening & rolling.  It was not pleasant & lasted about 40 minutes.

Then it seemed to settle down & I was able to sleep.

My belly felt achy all night, I did not sleep well.

This morning, since 7:40 am, I wasn't really feeling the baby at all.  I felt a few "movements" but not his normal kicking & jabbing close to 10:00 and at 10:40 decided to call in to the doctor.

Since then, I felt 3 kicks & 2 movements in 30 minutes, then had a contraction.  Since 11:20, I've felt 2 more movements.

It is so nerve-racking to not know what is going on in there.  I am 29 weeks and 5 days, so it is way too early for him to be born!

I just ate a bowl of cereal & drank a glass of soda so I'm hoping maybe it had something to do with being hungry.

The doc is taking an extra long time to call back too....

ETA: The doc called back.  She says most likely last nights acrobatics were a result of the freed up space & he might have changed positions.  She said if that's the case then his movements will feel different to me today.  I have felt a few more kicks in the last 1/2 hour too...since drinking a soda & eating.

I miss feeling all those kicks from the little

Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy. Hopefully little one will be easier on you :P
