I'm so paranoid/doctor visit

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
OMG I think Im loosing my mind. This morning I decided to go to work. I dont get paid when I dont work (no sick days) so we currently have no money coming in. And my boss isnt to happy with me at all. So I went to work. Ended up puking the whole way there. Around 10 am the little boy I watch (Im a nanny) was throwing a fit and kicked me really really hard in the stomach. I immediately threw up all over the place. I started cleaning it up and started worrying about Lava Girl. At around 2 I realised she hadnt moved at all today. So I started freaking out. I called my mom and she said call my doctor. So I did and she said to come in right away. So I did with Kaidence in tow. He was very whiney and I was still throwing up every 2 minutes (ok more like 15). So they had me wait in the room for about 30 minutes and by that time I was crying like crazy. Lava Girl is always soooo active I was sure something was horribly wrong. So the doctor put the heart beat thing on my belly and immediatly found her heart beat. It was 135 which was up from the last time. Friday it was 130. And while I was in the hospital her heart beat went down to 115. Which wasnt good. Thats the same as my heart beat! Anyways so I overreacted. The doctor said its better to overreact then wait to long when something does go wrong. She also told me I shouldnt be working. But I have to work. I have to. Anyways she said that the reason Lava Girl wasnt moving is because shes getting soooo big. I got another ultrasound just to make sure she was ok. She also decided to schedule a c-section for Febuary 27. They think shes going to be way to big for me. So I guess that has been decided.

I've been following your story and all I have to say is luck and some I hope things get better soon .

Amber, I don't think you can overreact where LavaGirl is concerned. I'm praying that everything will get better for you.

good luck with lavagirl.
You must be one small mama!
Better have her big then IUGR/small.

Schedule Sections arent the end of the world..your a strong women and you will do just fine.
If you can work part time...then do so...try and give your self a break!

I'm sorry you have to have a C-section, but it is probably what's best for you & Lava girl. Just out of curiosity, have you guys considered keeping her name as is?

Thanks you! Thats what John said but I feel very silly rushing to the doctor over every little thing. I mean Ive gone more then Ive posted because some of the stuff just turned out to be totally silly.

Sadly Im very small. I'm only 5'. But my pelvis is very very small. And have some hip problems (sockets are to large) so they are afraid that I might dislocate my hips during birth and she has a big head and I have a small whole. My boss doesnt want me to work part time. Which is a problem. Im probably gonna loose my job over this. But Im sure I can find another one pretty easy.

Thank you. John asked me if I was just going to name her Lava Girl L*******
and I said noooo but she will probably be called Lava Girl her whole life. I mean Im still called Wild Thing from when I was still in my mom. My brother is still Bug. Shes gonna be 20 years old and we will still call her Lava Girl!

I'm glad little Lava Girl is gonna be ok / I would have freaked out too sweetie- so don't feel bad! You are such a good momma already! As far as your job goes- I definitely understand not being able to quit/ but needing the time off. Try to do just part time (and your boss can eithor get over it or find someone else.) You have to do what's best for you and Lava Girl. I would go ahead and put a resume together so that when you do have little lava girl- you are able to find another job when your ready. I'm sorry all this is happening right now. Try not to stress too much- it could make you feel worse. / Also- at least now you have a set date for the C-section- that's a good thing! You have time to prepare yourself and to know ahead of time what will likely happen

A little off topic but I have a story for you. My mom's friend had one child and one one the way and her 2 year old kicked her stomach and all the sudden the baby inside kicked her sister right back and they been fighting ever since.

I'm glad everything turned out ok for you! I too have been reading along every thread and my whole house is cheering you guys on! Keep your chin up. You're going to be a brilliant mommy!

Glad to read that all is well! My sis had a C-section, too, cuz my niece was almost 10 lbs., and my sis is 5'1. Anyway, after the effects of the anesthesia wore off, my sis actually did quite well, and her stitches didn't seem to bother her anywhere nearly as badly as mine did, when I had an episiotomy for my first daughter, 29 years ago.
I am sending {{{better job}}} prayers and vibes for you - you don't need that kind of stress during what should be such a happy time
As for the nickname, Lava Girl, I think it's really cute. My girlfriend used to call her unborn baby "Hairball" cuz she was always yackin' as much as a cat And then when the baby was born, she hadn't picked out a name, and for 8 days we co-workers wondered Fortunately, she picked out a nice one, very lovely, but unique so I won't say it online.

With John not being able to work. Im having to take care of everything. Im gonna have to get at Stan to help out some. I know if I talk to his mom she'll help but she will want to get together and "talk". Which really means try to convince me and Stan to get back together. Which both of us is not going to happen. We are much happier away from each other. I mean I dont get the urge to throw up when I think about him now. John thinks he called the other day. Some guy called and asked for me but wouldnt tell him who it was. I dunno what he would want but John says the guy sounded like how I discribed Stans voice.

Im trying not to worry to much over my job. Im going to have a talk with them tomorow and so we will see what happens. She's annoyed with me anyways right now. So I probably will be loosing my job. But oh well. Theres nothing I can do about it. If it happens it happens. John said his parents will help us out. But I dont want to need help. Im slightly stubborn.

Though Im a little worried about the fact that Im having the c-section I'm also excited because at least now I know for sure when shes coming.

I would try and avoid stan and his mom right now if they cause you a lot of distress- that is the last thing you need this late in your pregnancy./ I would say though- if you do loose your job- and John's parents are wanting to help you- don't take advantage of them- but do take the help if you need it- the obviously care a lot about you and John and see that you are in a delicate state right now- so them offering help is a bit of a blessing. Especially since you're having a rough pregnancy- so if you see that you do need help....maybe put a little bit of the stubborness aside (i know it's hard! i'm a little stubborn too) and count your blessings Besides, with a c-section and having to have that type of surgery...you are not going to be able to go right back into work afterwards...so you may wind up needing help. Don't burn your bridges If you need help, be gracious...and know when to take it up That will save you and John a lot of stress right now as you're getting ready for little lava girl

Amber, your size doesn't really matter about wheither or not you can push her out.It's your hips that count.
I am only 5' 3" and I had
Amber--8 pounds 2 ounces
Devin-- 9 pounds 4 ounces
Jordan--9 pounds 9 ounces
Seth-- 8 pounds even.
they took Seth early cause he would have weighed atleast 10 pounds!!!!By taking him, I mean the wonderful Pictocin induction.
My hips are fairly big.But, I still had forceps with Amber,Jordan and Seth.Plus, they used Vacuum suction with Jordan and Seth.

Like your doctor said, you did the right thing in going in.

Best of luck to you and John and Lava Girl - and don't worry that's a really cute nickname to get to keep for life!

Glad you and Lava Girl are OK, Amber. And I agree with Nikki - avoid Stan at all costs. You don't need that drama.

And John's parents being there when you guys need them is a great thing. Be glad they care enough to help. Some families don't.

I know I really need to get over my Irish stubborness. But its not an easy thing. I like to be able to do things by myself. But I know its not really possible but I want it to be.

I do have very small hips. Ive had many xrays on them. I have arthritis in them and also the sockets are to big for the ball. I take after my dads side and they all had alot of trouble giving birth.

I'm gonna try and avoid Stan. But he DID call today while I was at work. I didnt answer my cell though. But he knows where I live and I have no doubt if he wnats to talk to me bad enough he will come by the house. I just hope he doesnt want to talk to me that bad. I also have my parents. But they financially cant help but my mom will be watching Lava Girl while I'm working and taking care of John. She's already taking care of John while Im working since his sister left.

I'm glad your okay Amber

Aww Don't worry. Here's a little trick I learned when I was pregnant with my boys.

When you don't feel her move, drink something sweet. Like chocolate milk. It always worked for me. Withen like 15 mins, they would move.

Cool I will definatly try that out! It scares me to death when she doesnt move. Because normally shes a little wiggle worm.
