How many scares? Really...
Fri, 12-31-2010 - 3:53pm

Weds night I woke up at 2am with my underwear soaked through. I thought I had just let go some pee in the middle of the night (which has never ever happened to me) so I changed and went back to sleep. Yesterday morning, I continued to leak clear fluid and hadn't felt baby girl move all morning by 11am. I panicked and called my OB, who wanted me to come in immediately. For the longest hour ever, I thought we had lost our baby girl! She came in and did an u/s immediately which showed baby alive with a strong heartbeat, but not moving much. She was worried about my fluid levels, so she sent me to the peri who squeezed me in for a high level u/s. That u/s showed "perfect" fluid levels and the baby moving around again. I was so relieved! I was sent home on bedrest for a few days and with instructions to go directly to L&D if I get any more "gushes" or if the leaking picks ups. Luckily, it went away yesterday afternoon and I haven't had any more since then.

Why can't this just be easy for me? There's only baby in there for goodness sake! I am just so disappointed with my body and cursing those women who have easy pregnancies. I was in NO WAY thinking I would be on bedrest at New Years and only 21 weeks along :*( Hopefully the rest of the pregnancy will go more smoothly, but seeing as how it's gone so far, I doubt that will happen...
