I had so many questions today because I've been having all kinds of aches and pains and after all those questions, I forgot to ask about the brownish-tinted mucus discharge I had a few days ago!! I also had been up since 3am this morning, completely sleepless, so I'm not really thinking straight today. I need to pick up Tylenol PM today, recommended by the doctor for insomnia. The doctor told me the baby was measuring large and that I might have to have a growth ultrasound in the next couple of weeks when I come back, depending on how big I measure next time. He is down LOOOOOOW. She didn't tell me how low, but I already knew he was. I have been feeling his shoulders in the crease between my hip and leg at night. He really lodges the shoulders in that area and makes it really uncomfortable to sleep. I didn't think his shoulders could be that low, but that's the explanation the doctor gave me. I just wonder then, where is his head? Obviously in my pelvis, but if the shoulders are so low, how is his head even lower? Kind of scary! I go in for NST and group B strep test next time (and maybe ultrasound?).
I just have a weird feeling this kid's not going to last in there until Halloween. I'm not placing bets, but it just seems hard to believe he'll be able to stay in there for five more weeks.
