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.
Today I took my daughter to daycare, which has graciously agreed to an extra day a week now so she will be there 3 days a week instead of 2. She can't get in full time again until Aug. 22 bc of the summer schedule being different. I took a nap from 11-2 and when I got up went to the restroom. I was walking out to get a drink to bring back to my room and had another leak spring. It wet through my pants but was prob only 1/4 cup? hard to tell but not a huge gush for sure. I have an appt. Thursday with my ob and I'm hoping he will order a fluid scan to make sure the level is still ok at this point if it's been leaking.
It was also my birthday yesterday and this little lady made it eventful!
