I have apparently learned the hard way that when you are 8 months pregnant and can't see your feet, it is probably best to shave while taking a bath, not a shower. And another good thing to remember is that a shower curtain will NOT catch you when you fall! On April 27th, I fell out of the shower while shaving and landed directly on my belly on the edge of the tub! OUCH! It actually didn't hurt that bad and I felt fine, but I called my docotor JUST to make sure! Well, she wanted me to come in so we could make sure Miss Kyleigh was doing alright. After being hooked up to the fetal monitor for about and hour and a half, Kyleigh's heartbeat was fast and strong and she was still moving like crazy BUT I was having mild contractions! And when you are only 31 weeks pregnant, that is NOT something you wanna hear! Dr. Hensarling believed the contractions were brought on by stress and said alot of water, tylenol, and rest would calm them down. So, I was placed on bed rest for 48 hours! I am just thankful that I am ok and most importantly Kyleigh is doing just fine and is still healthy as ever!

Friday, April 9, 2010
So now that I have FINALLY entered my 3rd trimester, my body is going through some MAJOR changes! I guess I am still getting used to those changes! I had a HUGE scare today! I had very severe abdominal cramping! It brought me to tears! I was so worried about our little Kyleigh. I guess that is normal for a first time mom-to-be! After enduring the pain for about an hour and a half, I contacted my nurse and she told me to try drinking lots of water, taking tylenol, and lying on my left side for an hour! WHEW! It worked! She informed me that I would start feeling Braxton Hicks Contractions around this time (28 weeks), and that my uterus could have also been under stress from not drinking enough fluids and being too active and over doing it! I am so relieved to be feeling much better!
