I'm not really sure where to put this, so I'll try here. Friday night DS jumped on my belly really hard. He landed across my belly. and it hurt but I didn't think much of it. The pain got worse on Saturday, and a work I had another gush of blood, but once again I didn't think anything of it because I've had the gushes before and was told that they could happen again. Saturday evening the pain was so bad that I couldn't stand up. I was at my parents with DH and DS, and my dad told me that I needed to call the hospital. They told me to come in.
I had been having braxton hicks contractions on and off all day, and while they were a little painful I didn't think much of it. When I got to the hospital they started giving me a NST, they said that baby looked good but the doctor was going to come in and check me out. The doctor came in around 9pm and told me that she was going to keep me overnight because she wanted to make sure that I wasn't showing signs of an abruption. She also mentioned that I had a couple of contractions while I had the NST. I also had protein and keytones in my urine.
I woke up at 2:30am in a lot of pain, and I called the nurse. She decided to hook me up to the NST machine again, and it turns out I was having contractions every 5 minutes. They decided that I needed to have an IV, and called the doctor back in. It took them two tries and two different hands to get my IV started, at this point it was 3am and the contractions were so painful that I started throwing up. They were also having a hard time keeping the baby`s heartbeat on the monitor, it went from 150 to 112, to 78 to 0. I really started to freak out when the nurse started to freak out, her hands were literally shaking when she was trying to write something out. She said I need to go get some help. I am still not 100% sure what was going on with this, something about the baby being smaller so they have a harder time keeping the monitor on him.
Long story short, I had contractions from 2:30am until 7am Sunday. They started talking about sending me to a bigger hospital with a nicu. They gave me stuff to stop my contractions, and it seemed to work. An OB came in around 9, and told me that he didn't`t think it was my placenta, but that he thought it was kidney stones and that I`m not going to the bigger hospital.
I had contractions on and off all day on Sunday and Monday. I had an ultrasound on Monday, and baby looks good and my cervix is long. It also showed that I had no kidney stones. I am still having some pain on the one side, and this new doctor really don`t have an explanation for it. He is taking his kidney stone theory and running with it even though everyone else thinks it's wrong. I was in so much pain that I was on morphine and gravol until yesterday afternoon.
I have to go back in immediately if anything changes or if the pain gets really bad again. Because this doctor thinks that it was a kidney stone, I am able to go back to work tomorrow. So I am....
Everything thing is still such a blur, and I'm still a little freaked out. We went from talking about maybe having the baby this week, to it's just kidney stones in a matter of hours. I know if something happens again I don't want the obgyn again. He just had no bedside manner, and kinda rushed over my worries. I'll post the weekly check in tomorrow, and will comment then too. I am really tired and just wanna be with my little guy, I missed him so much while I was in the hospital.
Sorry for the long story, hope everything is going good for you girls.
