Possibly in labor, but I REALLY don't want this baby TODAY! *Update*
Since Wednesday, I've been feeling contractions that have been getting more intense very slowly. They spread into my back, and it just sucks. So, today, I wake up completely nauseous. I've had a few bouts of diarrhea. The contractions are becoming more painful and consistent. I'm having this almost constant period pain in my lower abdomen.
I don't want this baby TODAY, though. I really don't. Yesterday, I would have welcomed these things 100% (despite the crappy sick and pains). I'm over 40 weeks, 3 days now. I'm ready for this to be over.
We just got the call that my soon to be mother-in-law's ex-husband died today. He's the father of my fiance's four siblings. I really, really don't want to have the baby the same day that he dies. I can't imagine what my fiance's sisters are feeling right now (not to mention his nieces and nephews). I don't want them to have to celebrate their dad's death every year with a birthday party, or to come to the hospital when I know they're in pain. ): It'd be so sad.
Edit: UGH. What is this?! I finally threw up.
My entire uterus contracted, and I felt like I was about to have diarrhea. I rushed to the bathroom, but when I got there, I threw up instead. As soon as the contraction went away, the feeling of diarrhea went away. The nausea is still slightly there, though.
I tried calling my doctor, but they haven't called me back. I'm not sure if I should go in or not. :/
Update: I just got home from the doctor's.
I am having contractions 10 minutes apart. He told me to come home, stick to the BRAT diet (for the nausea), and wait. Once the contractions get to five minutes apart, I need to come back in.
I feel so icky right now, and I hurt. I wish they could go ahead and do something more, but they won't until the contractions are closer together. Oh well! At least I know something now.
Thanks for the advice and support! :) It's been a rough day, but it seems like my fiance's sisters are using the wait for our baby as a distraction from their dad dying. We went to visit one of his sisters, and she was really happy to see us. I was happy we could visit her. It really seemed like she needed the company.
