After reading a bunch of posts and hearing about 2 LOs being born in August, I laughed and jokingly said to myself that my wee one was going to take his sweet time to get here.
I was kinda wrong??
Thursday I had contractions all day, sporadic but scheduled - started at an hour apart, went to about 30 min apart, then to 7-10 min, then to 4 min. They were strong but nothing major. I just figured I over did it and went to bed.
At about 4am I woke up and didn't go back to bed - these contractions were very intermittent. Drank some water, walked around, ate a snack. Finally called the Dr at 9am - they told me to come in.
Once in and being examined they determined I was about 1cm dilated. No big deal - but when she pulled her glove out it was full of blood. The pad under me, the tissues I used to wipe off with - everything.... so they sent me to the hospital and admitted me.
I was given fluids and IV antibiotics (gbstrep) they told me they wouldn't stop my labor, but they weren't going to help it along either - (35 weeks) so my contractions got to be 2 min apart for several hours and lots of breathing - but no change to my cervix...... they evenutally stopped on their own.
I am still having bloody show with the stronger contractions now that I am at home - but again they aren't very regular.
Not looking forward to playing this game for the next few weeks - hoping on my dr appt on Monday when I see my doctor he will decide something different.
Guess we are all trying to have August babies
