33 weeks, 5 days ~
I’m still having some cramping and contractions here and there. Mostly, I’m experiencing Braxton Hicks contractions. Last night, I had 3 “real” contractions that came every 8-10 minutes. I was beginning to get nervous, but thankfully they stopped.
I’m resting and staying hydrated. I haven’t done anything out of the ordinary the times I’ve had contractions. Pre-term labor is one of my risk factors, but it still comes as a shock. I will listen to my body and won’t hesitate to go to Labor & Delivery again if needed.
I plan on calling my OB AND my high risk doc tomorrow morning (Monday). I have an appointment with my high risk doc on Thursday and an appointment with my OB on Friday. They may want to see me sooner. I would have called them already, but things have been pretty calm. My next growth scan is this week. I can’t wait to see how big Graham is now! I think he should be about 5 lbs, maybe a little over.
I just really really hope Graham keeps baking for awhile. I want him to be healthy as can be! Not only that, but I love being pregnant and having him in my belly (I’m selfish haha). Plus, we have more to do before his arrival. I’m nervous that he may come early, but then again he might not. Even if does, he’ll be in good hands. Everyone has been so reassuring and supportive. I really appreciate it.
