So upset :( L&D last night
Copied from May EC:
I had two doc's appts, one w/ the reg OB and one w/ the peri. I had my
first 17P shot yesterday, got the flu shot, and had blood drawn. I told
them both about my occasional contractions and neither of them seemed
worried about it since my cervix is still super long and closed.
starting around 6pm last night, I started having more contractions and
cramping. I stumbled through bedtime with the kids (DH was at class til
9:20p) and then just laid on the couch petrified. I was having 2-3 an
hour along with poo cramps and nausea. Once DH got home, I decided to
call the OB on call and she said I had to go to L&D.
monitored me for a while and picked up some contractions and
irritability. So they had to give me 3 shots of terbutaline (30 minutes
apart) and two oral doses of another anti-contraction medication. The
nurse blew out a vein in my hand and so I had the iv in my wrist, which
they gave me two bags of fluid through. Things finally calmed down so
the OB sent me home (at 3am) with a prescription of procardia every 6
hours and no bedrest per say, but instructions to take it easy for a few
I am just so mad at my body! I cried on the whole drive
to the hospital (had to drive myself so DH could stay with the twins).
It reminds me of what I went through with the twins and so close in gestational age too (started procardia at 17 weeks with them). I'm worried that these contractions will just escalate and
I'll end up with a cerclage, terb pump, and bedrest for 3 months again.
I just can't do that this time! I have all of Liam's therapy
appointments I have to take him to. I just can't be on bedrest again. I'm so disappointed with myself. I was hoping this singleton pregnancy would be different.
