*sigh*. Last Friday morning I woke up with a LOT of pressure and some mild bh contractions. It took me a while to get out of bed, thankfully dh was home for the day. After about an hour without things getting better, I realized it was probably a urinary tract infection (UTI), so I headed into Emerg. I had been peeing tons, but just little amounts, no matter how much fluids I had. (I also have two kidney stones right now, one in each kidney).They took one look at me at ER and sent me up to L&D to get assessed. The nurse started hooking me up to the NST, and I mentioned to her that I was in the care of midwives, and they said they weren't supposed to touch me, and then went off to page my midwife. I figured that since it was probably a UTI I didn't think it was a pregnancy-related emergency. So the nurse comes back in, hooks me up to the NST, and says that my midwives were all busy, and that I should have paged them. 3 hours later, another midwife came in to assess me (not one on my team), and did a urine sample, some bloodwork, etc... and then we were to wait to see the OB. She ended up having to do a c-sec, and had a ton of patients to see in the hospital, so finally at 5pm I saw her. She prescribed me amoxicillan for the uti, and did a quick ultrasound. Baby was great, but she noticed my placenta was still lower than normal, so they booked me for an u/s Monday morning for the placenta, kidneys and bladder. I am awaiting my results now. Both Saturday and Sunday I had horrible kidney pain from the stones, which is awful being pregnant. I will keep you posted once I get my u/s results, please pray that everything is okay with the placenta, and baby! Oh, and me too! I am struggling right now, with the kidney stone pains, being 30wks pregnant, and taking care of two small children... I appreciate any thoughts and prayers! Thanks ladies!
