I posted this on Suz's thread (thanks again for updating btw!) but figured I'd just post a new one here so ppl saw it.
Hi girls! Thanks for all the support bedrest is doubtfully going to be bedrest w G around but I'm resting as much as possible and have her in daycare 3 days a wk not 2 now. I leaked a bunch more fluid this morning, enough to change my pants, but not a monster gush. I have an appt Thursday and will tell my doc then. Hopefully he will order a fluid chk bc I don't want to be dropping half a cup or so a day and not know what's left ifywim
So basically when I went in yesterday I was having contractions, but mostly showing an 'irritable uterus'. I told the nurse I had a few leakage incidents, and didn't think they were pee, but wasnt sure. She used the paper strip to test....yellow was neg for fluid, blue positive...well don't you know mine turned green She said generally that means there was fluid residue still there from an earlier leak, but the membranes were not fully ruptured. After several hours I was allowed to go home, but put on bedrest as much a possible/pelvic rest etc. They told me to keep an eye on fluid leakage and to come back if a bigger gush should occur. I also found out that I cannot deliver at this hospital intentionally (only if I am deemed to dilated to transfer) until I am 37 wks because they do not have a nicu. The closest hospital that has one where I would have to be sent is more then an hour away...even more to stress about now! So I am trying to hold this baby in here for awhile, and think I will be able to, as long as my water holds.
Thanks for all the support girls, you are so wonderful to be able to have :):):):)
