So last night I started having random contractions and was very crampy at dinner. They weren't regular, but some were really not playing nice. I went home and laid down and I was able to sleep for the most part waking occasionally to a sharp one here and there.
This morning the crampiness was there right away and the more I moved around the contractions started again. I had my ob appt. at 9am so I dropped G off and headed over. As he measured my belly he said I was having a contraction and asked if I could feel it. I told him yes that I had been having them since yesterday evening. I had thought about going into LD but since they weren't regular I figured I would be ok til I saw him this morning. Then after he listened to her hb he felt another. Said he wanted to check me and send me over to LD himself to be admitted and monitored for awhile to see what was what. He did an exam and said his short fingers weren't reaching my posterior cervix (some of my other docs had this problem with G too). He said it was good that it was still posterior, however it didn't mean I wasn't dialating. He swabbed for the FFN test and commented on the amount of discharge I had and had I noticed. I told him I had complained the last two times I saw him and he always told me it was normal...he goes 'hmm, well I'm not so sure now, I think you have a bacterial infection so I'm going to swab for that too and put you on some antibiotics.' I TOLD YOU BUDDY!! I also told him I couldn't DTD bc it was really uncomfy down there.
So off I went to LD for 4 hours of monitoring. Basically contractions were there but still irregular anywhere from right on top of each other to 2 min to 8 min apart. I was fully hydrated they said. After all that time they let me go on restricted activity and pelvic rest with instructions that if they got any regularity to them to come right back in and to take the antibiotic he prescribed. They said my FFN came back negative so that was good because if it came back positive I would have been put on full out bedrest which I have zero idea what I would have done.
I feel like poo a bit, still very crampy and really tired. Good news is that my GD test came back fine although the bloodwork showed I'm anemic so I've been given an iron supplement.
This is like deja vu' from DD!
