I am tempted to make an excuse to go get checked again tomorrow (er... today... it's 2:00 am! LOL!)
She's passed kick counts, but I woke up here at 2:00 am with a sharp sharp pain on my lower left side down low. It's probably just round ligament pain, but since I woke up, I went to the bathroom and it seemed like I may have been leaking fluid. My underwear was wet - and I wear Poise pads due to urine leaks in late pregnancy.
It didn't smell like pee, it didn't smell like anything... So it's hard to say for sure what that was.... sweat? pee? fluid?
I did another kick count here at 2:00 am, just to be safe, and she passed. So I feel safe waiting until morning to call.
So my hope is to get an ultrasound tomorrow to just check in with the baby. I'm a bit nervous about... well, a laundry list of things. Mostly fluid levels. I want her fluid to get checked, though, and I don't want to wait until Tuesday.
I know you guys aren't psychic... but I want to say the right thing to the nurses when I call in to ensure a fluid check. If I say I am maybe leaking, would that prompt a check or would they likely just say "call again when you are in labor?" What about this pain, could that be significant? Should I be worried about this pain? (It's sharp, burning kind of pain. It hasn't gone away yet since I woke up an hour ago, but the stabbing part comes and goes at random.)
Sorry if I sound really naive. It just seems like they are resistant to ultrasounds unless they really think they are necessary. I know I could say "I want my fluids checked" but I don't think they would allow that without reason.
Thanks so much for your advice/opinions. I apologize if this post makes no sense... it is 2 am afterall.
