appointment tomorrow morning (UPDATE)

So the doctors stalked me today and wanted me to come in after my weekend excursion in the OBTriage. I told them I couldn't leave work till 3 and they were all booked. So I am going in at 8:30 am. Cross your fingers they don't try to put me on bedrest cause as you know I am on my own and have no one to take care of me. So if the doc.tries I might go a bit crazy. I am scared to death of that, I know it will be in the beat interest of Jayden but I can't do it. I know I have another guy friend that said he will move in and take care of me, but I've got enough drama w/ keanon now and until I get all my stuff I don't want to cause any more.stress. So anyway I'm asking for prayers tonight that all goes well at the appointment. I'll post as soon as I know anything. Thank you all for being here for me, I don't think I could do this without your help support and.kind words.

So I saw the doctor this morning and he really wasn't able to give me a reason why this is happening which is frustrating. He said that because of the test they ran he knows that I will not go into labor in the next 2 weeks so they have time to work on things. He is sending me next wednesday to the fetal medicine at Akron Childrens for another detailed ultrasound on my cervix and the baby. I have my sppointment with them the following week. He said if this happens again he will have to put me on bedrest, which I begged him not to do. He said just make sure I sit as much as possible, don't so anything I dont have to and push fluids. I asked if he thought I was going to carry to term and he said at this point he didn't know. He sometimes people just have contractions thruoghout for whatever reason. So I just have to wait till Wednesday to find out more.

:bigarmhug: Sending lots of prayers for no bedrest.
My midwife has said through this pregnancy and my last that bedrest really isn't proven to help at all anyways. (and without any bedrest I made it to 36 weeks last time, whereas they put me on bedrest with my first and I still went into labor and delivered her at 34w5d) If they insist on anything I'd ask about procardia (if they still give that, it's a muscle relaxer, they gave me a script for that for ptl with DD2) or just insist that you will go to the hospital if you notice anything abnormal.

That stinks that you didn't get any answers really. It's a good thing that the fetal fibronectin test (the one that says you won't go into labor in the next 2 wks) was negative. They are pretty accurate. Hope you are able to take it easy so you don't end up on bedrest. KUP on your next appts.

oh thinking of you, hope that LO stays put for you and you are able to avoid bedrest. I guess it is a one day at a time thing, so best to wait and see, KUP on how your appointment goes.
