Why when under 38 weeks...

Wanting my bub to come now and i am 37 weeks, doctors were looking at inducing me as i got a rare skin condition called puppps and it drives you insane you cannot scratch enough. Nothing and i mean nothing works! I tried everything! The only thing that has helped a little was an oral steroid which i was a little hesitant to take but at that point would try ANYTHING. I wasnt sleeping my anxiety and stress levels were through the roof. I didnt leave the house because i had these big welt like rash. I became depressed and wasnt even looking forward to having him anymore i just wanted him out.

—Guest Princess B

31.5 weeks

My Ella's been in upside down position for at least a week and her head dropped when I was walking the dog. I then felt a hardening of my uterus for about 3 1/2 hours. I got to the hospital, took my pants off which felt tighter because of the lwer position shes in, and immediately the hardening stopped. I am praying that she stays in as long as possible. The doctor said its normal to drop around this time but boy was it uncomfortable. Tons of pressure in pelvic area. Have a very religious friend who said a prayer with her hand over my pelvic area requesting that the baby move back up a little and low and behold, when I stood up the pelvic pressure was gone. She dropped a little more again in my sleep last night but not too bad. My wish is for this little girl to come out when she needs to and to have her health :0)
