Last night I knew something was off -- I kept having these funny cramps every hour. I thought I might have overdone it with my walk with Diana. Then this morning, the little bugger wasn't moving and I freaked out. Work has been a little bit on the stressful side so I thought that maybe I was too busy to sit and take notice so I called the doctor.
An hour later, she ran all kinds of test ... FFT, UTI and then the non-stress test. She said my cervix was hard as a rock but then the non-stress test came by I was having mild contractions twice an hour. The culprit -- water. I'm only drinking 26 oz a day when I should be drinking 100 oz. Do you know how much peeing that is? That is going to the bathroom twice and hour.
So, I've drank 78 oz today so far and my kidneys are hurting but I have 7 weeks to go.
The doctor says that if I go full term my baby is going to be 9 lbs now. She's going to sit and think about it until my next appointment. She's also toying with the idea of me starting maternity leave at 36 weeks to reduce my stress levels which is scary because that's not far off. YIKES!
I'll keep you posted!
