What a day..

On my phone so not much typing ability without frustration so ill make this short..

Had a blackout yesterday morning..
Called dr today and let them know about it and that fetal movement is low..
Dr said go straight to LDR.. (Where I am right now)

First test strip for fluid showed I possibly broke my water..
Ordered another internal swab test and US..
US tech said fluid index is 10.44. Normal range for gestation is 14-22..
Did an internal exam and I'm slightly dialated..
Did the swabby test which came back negative.. Yay!!

However, the Dr isn't happy I'm contracting every 3 minutes..
Gave me two pills of something that started with "P" and they will check me in 2 hours..
If all is well, I get to go home!

I'm exhausted!!!

How did I miss this earlier? EEEEK! Glad you're home. No pregnant woman wants that kind of excitement!

What did they suggest for your low amniotic fluid? Drink more water?

Thanks everyone.. One minute at a time right now. lol..

Nope - bedrest was not on the agenda. And I'm ok with that! They gave me a list of things to watch out for and if they start or continue, I need to go back in to get checked.

Some small contractions today but I'm trying to keep it low stress and low key.. Looking fwd to and thinking about my baby shower on Saturday. I can't wait!! Biggrin
