1st trip to L&D

I spent a little time in L&D today. I was bleeding a little at work and then had some pain in my lower back. Everything seems normal and they did a few fun swabs. Hopefully, I don't hear back from them since no news is good news. One of the tests was to see if the baby will be here in the next 2weeks. Keep your fingers crossed since I still have 7 weeks to go.

Thanks, girls.

Sarah-Olivia only needed a little blow-by o2 when she popped out and then was fine. The problem came when she just kept shrinking. I had to beg her Dr to release her and agree to suplliment with formula. The shrinking was a pattern that continued till I switched to straight formula.

Jayla-the source of the blood iss till unknow. Assuming the tests come back fine, we're going to assume one of the vessels in my cervix burst. She didn't mention that I was having contractions. I didn't feel anything.

As scared as I was, I did enjoying hearing his little heartbeat and movements for an extended amout of time. I just hope not to repeat it.

I'll share what my MW told me -- while the FFN test is fairly accurate if negative, when it shows up positive, it doesn't necessarily mean anything.

That's what I read, too. Since I'm not having any other signs,I'm happy to believe it was a fluke.
