Once again, I've been MIA, but I have a legit excuse! LOL
Monday evening, after grocery shopping with the littles, I took a nasty spill in the garage. (Didn't see a rain puddle that formed after I put the door up and retrieved mail, trash cans, etc.)
Anyway, of course Fire Hubby was on-duty and it was after hours. I called the OB on call and he was pretty insistent that I be seen at the hospital. Fortunately, I was able to skip ER entirely and head straight up to Labor and Delivery to a triage room. They kept me for about 5 hours monitoring my contractions and performing an internal exam.
Water didnt' break, no bleeding or spotting, and contractions were sporadic/normal for that stage of pregnancy. My tush, hip, ankle, and shoulder have been sore, but that's about it!
Had regular weekly OB appt. yesterday. All continued to look good. I will be seen again this coming Monday (19th). Growth scan will be performed. If baby measures too large, c-section date will be moved up from the 29th of July.
This concerns me.
While the selfish side of me would love to deliver even earlier than July 29th, I'm worried about delivering too early. What if the growth scans are off and he isn't as big as they are estimating? My scheduled c-section is already 9-days ahead of EDD, so...
Other than that all is well. Have done a great job this past week keeping blood sugar under control, but man the contractions are terrible. This is all new to me as I have never experienced labor and/or contractions before.
That's about it,
