I’m officially the most pregnant I’ve ever been with any of the kids. We thought Sunday night was it. Put everyone on notice, regular contractions 4 minutes apart, intense. And then suddenly….nothing. I did this with the 2 little kids as well, lots and lots of pre-labor. Monday and Tuesday very few contractions, but I was beyond exhausted from not sleeping well. Super cranky too, so I’ve been laying low and hiding out to not subject everyone to my moods.
I had a midwife appointment and a chiropractic appointment yesterday. My midwife was pretty sure that Jonah is head down, but not certain. When we got home, I was super uncomfortable, more so than usual. I started feeling feet kicks to the cervix and hiccups up high under my ribs. I’m pretty sure he’s flipped back to breech *again*. UGH! Head down and stay put kiddo!! After all that work to flip him over a few weeks ago! Stay put kid and stop messing with me! So…we are going in for a presentation check later this afternoon and then I have an acupuncture appointment after that in case we need to flip him. I feel like the acupuncture last time, with acupressure and the homeopathic Pulsatilla did the job in flipping him a few weeks ago. So we will do those things again if needed, but it may take a day or two. Hopefully if that is the case he’ll sit tight and give us some time. I woke up super crampy this morning and have a few other early labor signs, so I think we are getting close no matter what, but you never know. He could just be a really indecisive Libra.
