I'm starting to wonder what I should do about my current situation.
I'm still having cramping and contractions, and am starting to wonder if my amniotic fluid is leaking. The baby has slowed down his movements, but I don't know if I am imagining it or if it's real.
The tests at the hospital showed negative reactions to fluid, though it showed nothing with my daughter either, and an ultrasound with her showed my water had broken.
So far, I haven't had an ultrasound because they're not able to arrange one at night and my OB doesn't seem to think it's necessary. I haven't had meds to stop the contractions because my cervix isn't dilating.
I guess I'm just starting to feel like nothing is being done about a situation that could become incredibly serious incredibly quickly. Bed rest helps, but full fledged bed rest isn't possible with my home situation.
In Canada, it's not possible to always switch doctors easily, not to mention how hard it was to find this guy in the first place.
What would you ladies do?? Should I assert myself a little louder and request ultrasounds and terbutaline (to stop the contractions) or do I just trust that my doctor knows what he's doing...
