Update on me

Thank you, Mandi, for updating everyone. I was so out of sorts once I started getting drugs last night.

Those darn contractions picked right back up after I posted and I couldn't talk through them. The pain was in my back and lower belly. So I called the hospital and they had me come in. Dh called his parents to come over to watch dd but they took forever, so when we finally got out I was crying in pain. We got to the hospital and the nurses were jumping around like crazy, I had three working on me at one point. When they checked my cervix, she said it was 1-2cm and very thick. I broke down crying at that point, I was so afraid the baby was coming. They said it was ok, I was probably just dilating a little early and being thick still was a good sign. They couldn't do the fetal fibronectan shot to see if I am going into labor in the next couple weeks b/c I had dtd. So they gave me an IV and terbutaline. About an hour later I felt the contractions again and they gave me another shot and the nubaine. The nubaine made me itchy all over so they also gave me bendaryl and half an hour later another shot of terbutaline. I wasn't feeling the contractions but they were still every 5 minutes. Between being itchy, disoriented and the bed felt like I was laying on a table, I didn't get much sleep.

But I'm doing lots better now, especially after sleeping. I have an appt with the dr over the midwives on Wednesday so we will see how that goes. Until then I'm on bedrest.
