…if you would please…
They restarted the vote count…AGAIN! (If you’re confused, see this post from a couple days ago)…so if you could again do me all a favor and click the hell outta the link on the right that says “We’re Listed! @TopBabyBlogs.com” (or for you RSS readers, the banner at the bottom of each update) – that would be swell!
(We were doing so well – this blog was ranked 19th! And now…pffftt. So, if you could help out with a bunch of clicks on those, that’d be the greatest virtual gift to give to Abby!)
That’s right, your mom.
No wait…I mean, me.
The verdict is in: pregnancy-induced hypertension. My BP was elevated, gained 3lbs since Thursday and protein was in the pee again. And after feeling like ass yesterday, John the Midwife made the call – today is the day.
The hubs and I are at home, repacking our already packed hospital bags and getting ready to go to L&D. They’re going to start by breaking my water – I’m at 5cms today, so…here’s hoping I don’t speed through this! My parents are getting their shit together and driving back in the next hour…it takes about 5 hours to get here. I just hope they’re here in time!
So, to repeat – HOLY SHIT I’M GOING TO HAVE A BABY IN THE NEXT 24 HOURS.
I’ll blog/tweet as I can. Follow me on twitter (link on the right in my blog) if you’d like to stay posted.
Posted at 12:44am – so when I say “tomorrow,” that really means today. FYI.
As I was saying goodnight to the hubs and getting ready to settle in on the couch, I started getting a sensation something along the lines of “this kid finally punched through my cervix and I know if I check I’ll have an arm hanging out of my vag.” I’m not joking. I started panicking a little. Every movement the ninja made felt like things were just opening up for it to fall out.
Then I remembered that since my water still hasn’t broken, that thankfully, that is not possible.
However, I am in full panic mode about WTF is going on down there. My pants-baby fears are not being quelled. I just spent the last 30 minutes googling “10 cms without pain” and “full dilation without warning.” Luckily there wasn’t much. But I’m still worried.
Huhhh, now the kid is awake and moving again. Sleep is not happening tonight. I just know it.
I have an “appointment” with John the Midwife tomorrow (appointment meaning I have to call and find out when to come in tomorrow morning) and part of me is wishing for induction or maybe “holy crap you’re 8 cms dilated – to Labor & Delivery!” just because I can’t imagine living with this baby-falling-out sensation for much longer.
But do you see that badge to the right? The one that says “We’re Listed! Top Baby Blogs!”? It’s also at the bottom of every RSS feed.
Well, they just restarted the count, so I need all the help I can get to go back to the number I was at before! I think I was around #56, which is awesome considering how many blogs are registered through the site.
Anyway – any clicks you’d like to give me would be greatly appreciated. There are a lot of other awesome blogs listed at this site as well that you should check out.
Thanks!!! You’re all swell…as well as the bees knees.
(Obviously I still have an inside baby. I’m working on it. Trust me.)
