Just wanted to post an update:
I went out with my DH last Friday night for our wedding anniversary. We decided to go to a movie after dinner. Well.....wouldn't you know I started getting those annoying braxton hicks contractions every 2-4 minutes for over an hour. I didnt feel any cramping or have any other symptoms. My DH made me go into the hospital to get checked to be sure. The OB Doc on call put me on the monitors and I was still having the contractions every 2-3 minutes. He made a comment, "it looks like you are in labor". I gasped but I knew it couldn't be for real because I have had these contrax in the past. He checked me and I was not dilated. So.......they gave me some IV fluids and Procardia, and he did an US on me and found out that my amniotic fluid levels are high which may be causing the contrax. Now I have to in next week for an NST and BPP. I have to see Peri again. Ugh......................this pregnancy is really a rough one physically. I now wonder if the discomfort I have been experiencing was/is due to the high fluid levels. Sometimes I feel like my belly is too big for my EDD, and my skin feels like it about to tear open. Sorry TMI.
So I will update afte my appt next Tuesday. OH and one more surprise that really has me upset: the baby supposedly turned and now is breech!!!??!
Hugs Mimi - thinking about you. Hope things went well yesterday. KUP!
I updated on the monthly thread. Thank you so much for your thoughts and concerns
Well I spent another night in L&D . I had been getting alot of back pressure and tons of BH contrax all throughtout the later part of the day. After i put the girls to bed, I got in a warm bath thinking that would help. I actually wanted to get out for some reason. I started getting the BH evey 2-3 minutes on the dot. Then I got some weird lower tummy pains. I decided to call my DH and we went over to the hospital. I wasnt sure what was going on. I didnt feel like it was sudden labor kicking in but I was getting uncomfortable. So.....they checked me and I was 2-3 cm dilated! BUT I am still thick and long (sorry if tmi). They admitted me and gave me some IV fluids. As of this morning I had no cervical change so they sent me home.
I am still waiting for my antibody level results. URGH. I am stressing over too much right now (lab results and the the size of baby's head..measuring 41 weeks now). My Midwife had been fantastic and so accomodating. I love her! She's the best!!!! she promised she would deliver me this time too, even if she isnt on call!! YAY
Anyway, enough babbling from me. I am so groggy today from not sleeping more than 30 minutes last night. oh well...I guess I better start getting used to this feeling AGAIN....lol
So sorry you had such a rough weekend Mimi. Super big hugs sent your way. Hope you had a better night last night. Thinking of you!
jeez sounds like this baby wants to come early. hope this baby stays put a little longer.
