    This may be one short-lived lodge! She hit 36 weeks today I think.
    The next update from her birth buddy:
    Shes been contracting since 3 pm yesterday - no pain meds so far! So she is well on her way to getting her NCB
    I can't wait to hear what happens next, sending happy positive vibes her way!

    Well I guess I will jst have to start my lodge a little bit backwards. First off thanks Can't wait to share my story but here is my story from L&D today.

    Well yesterday afternoon I started having really bad cramps at about 3 pm but I figured they were just from walking around too much that morning. by about 730 or 8 is was getting to the point that I was really uncomfortable. But I was having a hard time timing my contractions. They weren't like what everyone keep describing. They where just loads of pressure in my pelciv area and some back pain. Well I called the l&d nurse to see what she said to see if I should go in and she told me that it sounded like nothing to put my feet up and drink a couple glasses of water. So between then and about 11 I walked and leaned over the egde of my bed with my knees on the ground took my second hot bath of the day and at 11 i kinda nodded off to sleep. Well 12:30 rolls around and I wake back up with more pressure and back pains so I do the same thing. Walked and leaned and just kind of piddled. by about 230 I was done. Leaning over the toilet puking was kinda my last straw. So off to l&d we went.

    So we get there and get everything started. Well since I was 36 weeks today my doctor ordered a shot of what ever it was to stop the contractions. I was ok with that I was only at 1 cm and it would give my little boy some time to bake. Well at about 4 or 430 they gave me the shot and it looked like the contractions started to lighten up, also let me say at this point I didnt have an IV only the constant monitoring because we wanted to watch the contractions. well at 5 is when it went bad. I had a reaction to the shot they gave me and I passed out my BP plumited and they lost the babies heart beat. All I remember was looking at her and trying to tell her that I was getting really fuzzy and light-headed. Well the next thing I remember its like 45 minutes later. I'm half naked and there are like 4 nurses in the room and I've got an IV in my arm. Luckily everything was stabilized tho.

    After that I was pretty out of it until about 7 am when the contractions started to get really painfull. So at this point after the shot didn't work on the contractions I had desided that I was going to have a baby. My doctor wasn't able to make it in until about noon so one of the nurses checked me... Still at a 1. They asked me if I wanted something to take the edge off and I desided against it. So from about 7 until 1230 when my doctor got there the contraxs stayed pretty constant 2-3 minutes apart. I thought I was making progress. With all the pressure I was feeling. Well when my doc got there and I still hadn't dilated they signed it off as false labor and said that if by 5 I hadn't dilated any then they would be sending me home with something for the pain. I also learned that I have another kidney infection and that this was what was probably causing the false labor

    Im not exactly sure why but at this point I kind of lost the last bit of mental composure I had. So I spend the next 5 and a half hours sitting in my hospital bed in my mom's arms like a 5 year old crying. I'd been told several times since about 7 that morning that I was going to have a baby and that in the next day I'd get to meet my son and then had it ripped away from me.

    So now its 7 pm and im sitting at home miserabley still having contractions about every 7 minutes with tons of pressure and a killer head ache trying not to be upset.... That was probably one of the hardest things I've ever done... walking out of that hospital still pregnant. I know that its going to give him more time to bake.... But it's still really hard... I just have to keep telling myself he needed a few more weeks to bake any ways.
