Well, after contracting all day yesterday into the night last night, and then even stronger today, I decided it was time to call the dr. I started having diarrhea yesterday and it hasn't stopped so I thought I was getting dehydrated. I have drank water all day and it hasn't helped. I was able to put myself on the monitor at work for about 20 minutes and had several contractions that were quite strong. Anyways, so my dr worked me in this morning. I let him see the strip from work and he was quite impressed. Cervix is still closed! He is starting me on some Procardia every 6 hours to see if that will either kill them or lessen the intensity of them. I didn't have any ketones in my urine so I'm not dehydrated. No clue as to why I'm contracting this much at this point. So, I'm off of work for the rest of the week. Told me to take it easy at the house and to rest as much as possible. I go back Monday for my regular appt and we will reassess the situation to see where to go from here. So, I'm on the couch. Nibbling on some chips. Contractions are still going and I'm starving because I'm scared to eat too much. He said I could go to my shower Saturday as long as I took it easy.
