I did mention in my earlier posts before that I have a very sensitive uterus. When I was carrying Alycia, I was ordered by my Ob&G to be on partial bed-rest as I had frequent contractions that started at week 20. My tummy would harden and get cramped when I needed to pee, to poo, when I ate, when I was under stress, when I moved too much, when I was in a car ride, etc. Basically, my uterus is just ultra sensitive to movements. Any activity that touches the uterus would make my uterus hardened. My cervix also shortened at week 20+ and I was told by my Ob&G that if I did not take leave from work, I would go into pre-term labor. The same thing happened when I was carrying Sherilyn but my cervix did not shorten this time.
I have been getting these hardenings on my tummy and contractions for the past 2 weeks. It’s worst when I have to bathe the gals, squat down, get up from a lying position, need to pee and poo, when under stress and when I move my body too much. The hardenings were pretty bad yesterday. Yesterday, 2 of my hubby’s aunts came to our house for dinner. By the time my helper finished washing up everything, it was already way past 12 midnight. I had been standing and working in the kitchen almost the whole day – teaching my helper how to make a pot of good soup, helping out hubby’s aunt when she cooked, boiling water, washing bottles, bringing food out from the fridge, storing leftover food in containers, bathed the girls and checking everything before I went upstairs to sleep just to make sure my careless helper did not leave any unfinished food in the wet kitchen till the next morning. Had I not helped out, I think my helper wouldn’t be able to sleep until 2am. I was really exhausted yesterday.
Tomorrow is my appointment with the fetal specialist. I’ll see what Dr Patrick has to say about these hardenings on my tummy. Hopefully my cervix has not shortened this time, else I would have to be on partial bed-rest again.
