Last night I started having BH's on the way home from a movie with my mom and the kids. I have been having pain and pressure in my pelvis/vaginal area for a while now, but that got worse too. Then, I started having diarrhea (tmi, sorry). I called the clinic, but my regular OB was out. Luckily I was able to leave a message for the other OB at the clinic. They called back and had me rest the rest of the night, and drink as much water as possible. If anything got worse through the night then I was supposed to go in. Other than that, if the symptoms were still there in the morning then I was to call my regular OB.
So, this morning I was feeling better, but again, the pressure got worse and I was having BH's as well as tightening in my pelvis. I called, and they got me in right away. Unfortunately I had to drag all 3 kiddos in with me. They were fine in the waiting room, right up to when the Dr. called us back. Then DS2 threw a tantrum. Great way to start it off. The kids were loud, and having trouble listening the whole time we were back in the room. I was so mad. In there defence, it was lunch and getting to be nap time when we went in, but still. Any way. They had me give a urine sample, checked the baby's heart beat, felt my belly, and checked to see if I was dilating. Luckily my cervix looked great. Nice and thick, and shut. Baby also looked great. They still hadnt had the labs back, but sent me home, told me to rest, keep pushing fluids, etc. The doctor said that its probably just a combo of my digestive track being irritated, the heat, and this being my 4th. They did call a couple of hours later and let me know that I did infact have a UTI and that they had faxed a script for some meds into the pharmacy.
Right now I am breathing a sigh of relief. I can handle a UTI. I am still able to hold out hope that my pre term contractions wont hit this pregnancy the way they did with the other 3. Fingers crossed.
