Just a quick update, I'll do personals later. I'm in the hospital!!!!! most likely our little one will be born tomorrow
I developed a similar condition as alreadyblessed. I had this "allergic reaction" (that's what I thought it was) in my feet and hands. I took benadryl and nothing was happening, in fact it was getting worse, so dh and I decided to drive to ER just to have it checked. Well, my midwife happened to be at L &D attending a birth and she had me come up for a check up. She thinks I have that liver condition that some women develop at the end of pregnancy (sorry, can't remember the name), but the only way to confirm it is through a test that takes 10 days. In any case, she strongly encouraged us to start inducing. Her opinion is that both baby and I are looking great, why risk it and wait for some complication to arise? afterall my due date was two days ago. Of course, we still sort of had the option of going home, but dh and I decided to listen to her advice and here we are!!!
They put that vaginal cream to start labor, and oh Lord, contractions started about 30 minutes after. I've been having a lot of them, but I'm still coping with the pain ok
They think she'll come tomorrow sometime during the day, maybe in the AM? we'll see.
Anyway, send your love, prayers, and positive vibes. Thank you for all your support and for being so sympathetic about my venting
