Could feeling shi!t! be a sign of preterm labor ?

I don’t know what is going on with me. This post’s title is sort of sarcastic, but at the same time it isn’t. I do wonder sometimes if feeling this shi!t! could be a sign of early labor.

The worst part is that I don’t even know how to explain what I am feeling. It is physical and emotional. It almost feel like I am sick. I am so tired, so down. I haven’t been able to sleep well. I can’t find a comfortable position and when I do get to sleep, it is very shallow. I can’t fall deep asleep and therefore anything wakes me up. My stomach feels funny, almost like a stomach flu feeling as if I am going to throw up or have diarrhea, but I never do. It feels like the food is taking forever to digest. Then I get these really mild cramps, but this really weird pain in my back like its splitting in half. I feel ┬álike pushing, I dont know how to explain. I also feel so claustrophobic in my own body like there is no room for me in here anymore. It feels like my skin is this really tight outfit I need to break free from.

Oh, Gosh. I feel awful. And when I do get those lower backaches even tho they are not strong, I do not know why, I feel like crying. It is like I need to push real bad, not the baby out, but some how squeeze my back.

Baby is kicking lots so I guess she hasnt dropped yet and therefore I must not be close to labor. But still, what is this??

I am sorry about the depressing post, but I needed to let it out !!



3D Scan

Yesterday was a great day not only because it was the day we were going to have our 3D scan, but also because my cousin’s baby was born !

My cousin’s wife got pregnant a couple of months before I did and we developed this really strong bond throughout our pregnancies. Even though we live in different countries we managed to stay in touch and speak almost everyday. She is a wonderful person and I am so glad my cousin found a wonderful person to build a beautiful family with.

He was born during the time we were having our 3D scan at around 5 p.m. Welcome Miguel ! May you be showered with blessings !

Now, let’s talk about the scan. It was a wonderful experience. Amber, the lady who performed the scan, was a very sweet and patient person. Even though I had eaten chocolate on my way over there ( as I had been told to in order to get the baby active), it was really hard to get a nice view of her face at first as she was covering it with her arms all the time.

So, Amber and I started poking my belly to get the baby moving and it actually worked. We were finally able to get a nice view of her face and I think it gave us a pretty good idea of what she is going to look like when she is born.



Honestly, I think she looks 80% like daddy and only 20% like mommy. It is his forehead, his nose, his lips, his fingers and toes. The only features that look like mine are her chin and cheeks!
