Hi! I am the crazy mom.
How am I supposed to make it to 39 weeks? Not without loss of sleep I can tell you that much.
I keep getting perfect check ups, she keeps passing her 6 moves in an hour kick count daily with not problem at all. I have weekly biophysicals about to begin..none of it makes the crazies go away.
I have somehow convinced myself that if I don’t feel 5-6 moves every single hour of every day then something must be wrong. Um, sleep?
Last night/this morning I woke up at 4am and thought I hadn’t felt her move since bedtime at 11pm. (I was sleeping). So I got up, drank cranberry juice and laid on my side for 1 hour, til 5am til I felt 4 kicks, she was sleeping that is why the slo-mo, I know that, but I was overtaken by the crazies. I woke up at 8am to her kicking up a storm and she hasen’t stopped since, there is nothing wrong with this baby.
I am losing my mind the longer I can’t see her and know she is ok. I will be 37 weeks in 4 weeks 4 days, I want her out then. Grr for having to wait til 39 weeks. I know it is probably better for her to bake longer but I just hope I can make it with my sanity intact.
Maybe I will do better when I am on mat leave and can spend more of the day paying attention to her movements.
