thanks precious, jen and mandy
mandy am so glad for you re. no preterm labour. continued labour-less days for you! an epsom salt bath sounds so good right about now.
afm, my 2ry midwife conferred with a few of the other midwives and were suggesting an u/s to check fluid levels. but an appt was nowhere to be found (ottawa is a city of just over 1 million people so you would THINK it would be easy enough to get an appt last minute if needed, but i guess it isn't considered high risk enough- i was leaning towards not getting an u/s at this point). my primary is back on call tomorrow so she and i will discuss and see what's going on. i did clarify again with my 2ry that the positive was the nitrazine test and the negative was the fern test which is more specific anyhow.
but 4 phone calls with my 2ry today - has to be a record
...and more to come tomorrow
i told her i have no edema, no fever, clear fluid that is odourless and since the office couldn't secure an u/s for me today or tomorrow then i am going to try not to worry about it. my primary knows my history really well so if she thinks i need an u/s i know she'll set up one at the hospital immediately. i am tired and i think i am going to have a small glass of wine tonight to calm my nerves and maybe help me sleep off a bit of this anxiety.
jen, hang in there - hopefully amelia will be out of the nicu soon!!!
