Fun evening in L&D

I started having contractions again tonight. I called and got sent to L&D. They gave me terbutaline and omg I am shaking. I feel like I am on speed. They also found blood, glucose, and bacteria in my urine so they sent it to check for a kidney infection or something. If its not one thing it's another :/

Yes. I have been on bed rest for three weeks now. Just this past Wednesday we were thinking how stable things have been and my cervix hasn't gotten any shorter. Then BAM tonight these contractions start up again. So nerve wracking. And it was dhs only night to watch the basketball games so I am disappointed for him but obviously baby comes first.

Aweeeee, you poor thing. Sad Sometimes I sort of wish I had to go on bed rest so I could do nothing but then I realize that's stupid. I'd go crazy after 24 hours.

Ya I thought this isn't going to be so bad getting to lay in bed all day watching movies and reading. Then the guilt comes in because you can't take of yourself and your child and you body is so sore from laying down so much and my mind is so stressed watching movies and reading doesn't really help.

That suuuucks. Did they ever find out if you had a kidney infection or something? I hope LO stays put for a while longer. How are you feeling now?

That's so true. I only had a small taste of it after my CVS...less than 24 hours in bed and I was going crazy. I feel for anyone stuck on bed rest who DOESN'T have an older child to care for...and it just gets that much worse when you do.

Oh wow, sorry you are going thru all this. Hope your little girl keeps baking awhile longer. And hope you don't have a kidney infection. Bedrest sounds tough. Hang in there. Just take it day by day.
