So I'll be 40 weeks on monday (may 6th) and today I've had little to no fetal movement all day. Yesterday it was sort of the same thing and I had a doctors appointment and I told them what was going in along with my symptoms I've been having and she suggested I go to the hospital. So I did after running errands and I felt like our was a waste of time. They drew blood, had me attached to a machine the whole time, they told me my blood pressure was fine. (my doctor told me mind was elevated). I was dizzy, thirsty, (though I drank more than a gallon of fluid) lightheaded, seeing stars, fuzzy, and had migraines that would not go away.
Now today I feel like crap, I can't breath out my nose, my neck is sore, it all started this morning when my tongue started feeling funny. I think I caught something from the hospital ...
Back on track- I haven't felt him move all day until like 5 pm. (its 11:37 pm right now) then out was just a simple kick, I felt him move less than 10x all day and its starting to freak me out. My dh thinks he's just running out of room, but I'm starting to get concerned.
Also, I'm not sure if I lost my mucous plug but at L/D yesterday they told me I was 1% dialated (and 50% effaced). This is my first pregnancy and I'm clueless as to what to expect...
UPDATE: So its now 5 am. I'm FINALLY feeling some movement, I would up to pee and felt him move but I think I might still try to convince dh to take me to the doctor later on.
Also, I feel SICK AS A DOG! My whole body is sore, and my nose is both runny and stuffy. :( I hate being sick, but can be being sick affect my baby as well?
I haven't felt him kick or hiccup just movements
EDIT: I'm in the hospital now. Convinced hubby to take me :) apparently I'm contracting, and I don't feel shit. Weird... This happen to anyone?
UPDATE: I LEFT THE HOSPITAL! I was there from like 4 pm- 9:30 they swabbed me to check for the flu, they checked my cervix twice. First nurse said I wasn't dialated. Which I knew was BULLSH*T because they tools new I was 1 cm last time I went to the doctor. So the next nurse checked me and corrected the last one. They took a urine test to see if I had anything. Turns out I'm good, no flu, no uti, no fever but the nurse even told me I felt hot.
They monitered me because they said I was having contractions and they wanted to make sure I wasn't in preterm labor. So I asked the doctor if I was considered preterm at 40 weeks and then he corrected himself, lol.
They also told me if baby wasn't out by 41 weeks they were going to induce me. Them he said "sadly" their c-section rate is quite high for people who get induced here......great..so much for natural birth.
