Stop your belly-achin?

Bob is back in town now. We both slept better on Saturday night, and even though it's New Year's Eve, I have a feeling we'll be hitting the hay early again tonight. (11 p.m. has gotten to be pretty late to me.)

Someone at our vet's office mentioned that she was going to an Irish New Year's party this year. Ireland's about 5 hours ahead of us, so they planned to ring in the new year at 7 p.m. and then enjoy a restful evening. I feel like such a dork for admitting that that sounded like such a great idea to me.

I have no idea what our new sleep schedule will become once Little Elvis arrives, and I wonder if we'll be too exhausted for a New Year's bash next year.

One of my co-workers has a 5 1/2 month old daughter and she told me that her daughter actually slept through the entire night last week. That sounds very impressive to me. I'm hoping Little Elvis will be able to sleep through the night that early as well.

I haven't figured out his schedule yet. He doesn't move so much after I eat or drink. There's not really a rhyme or reason to when he moves. At least not one that I can understand yet.

On Friday night, it was just me and the cats again. This was probably even better for Bob. My stomach started really hurting around 7 p.m. that evening. It hurt to sit, stand, walk, lie down, pretty much do anything.

It felt like I had done 2,000 sit-ups while holding weights and hanging upside down. (Those are the hardest, right?)

Luckily, our doctor had talked to us about Braxton Hicks contractions at our last appointment. She said my whole stomach would feel really hard and tight. It definitely didn't feel hard or tight. It just felt sore. I'm thinking the muscles were just stretching more.

Since I have already scared Bob fairly recently with an oddly timed call, I debated calling my mom to find out if she thought I could rub "Icy Hot" on my stomach. I didn't want to bother her either, though. So, I just whined to the cats and went to sleep fairly early.

I opted not to use the muscle rub, by the way. There are so many things I can't do right now, I figured that Icy Hot use on my stomach would certainly be one of them.

Do your muscles still hurt? Is it ok to rub muscle stuff on them?

I had to check back in on you, since we are so close to our due dates. I'm telling little Bunny Scratch to come early, and you're telling Little Elvis to take his time. That must be a major difference between first time moms and those of us who have had a ton of kids. :-D

I can't imagine rubbing Icy Hot on my belly; that made me laugh and wince all at the same time. I'm having plenty of BH contractions, especially when I go for my walks, but they usually stop when I rest. Bunny Scratch is really active all the time, except when it's noisy. He/She seems to enjoy waking ME up from naps and deep sleep.

Happy New Year, and may everything good come to you and your family in 2007!

I too have wondered about muscle creams such as "Icy Hot".... but I am not too sure if pregnat women should stay away from that sort of thing. I am now so used to not being able to take anyuthing, I have just figured those would be out of the question too. There is probably some sort of "active ingredient" that seeps into the skin which might not be too good for baby.

Anyway, just thought I would say Happy New Year... and all the best in the coming months!

I concur with Caerynn and Taraden and would also opt out of using Icy-Hot.. you never know...

Thanks! I'm also glad I stayed away from the Icy Hot. It probably made me stronger anyway. I hope you guys have great New Year's, too!
