I think my body wants to join in the fun of all the early labors we have here.
we've had a fun last 36ish hours.
Last night at about bed time I thought I was going to be sick again. Well that turned into intense pain above my belly button that spread through out my whole stomach and a very hard stomach. That went on for about an hour last night, then I fell asleep with scary thoughts of waking up to a new crying in our bedroom.
Sara went to work this morning and all was fine. Then at about 3pm, I went to lay shay down on his play mat, and the super sharp pain was back and harder. It lasted for about 2 minutes, and then came back a few more times. I told Sara and she said I should call the ob and talk to them, incase I was in early labor or just having a bunch of contractions. So I called at 3:45 and they said to be there by 4:15 at the latest because they can't make the doctors stay late. So I woke up shay, put him in a diaper, threw milk into the diaper bag and threw him in the car. He wasn't thrilled I woke him up.
I got there 5 minutes late because the short cut road to town was closed (I think because of high water). I got in, and Shay hung out with the nurses while I was examined. My cervix was a little soft but not open at all. She saw a bit of funneling and called for an ultra sound to measure my cervix. Well its starting to get a little shorter, which if I were anywhere farther along they wouldn't be worried, but because I'm 31wks and 6 days, they had some cause for concern.
They said I had to have a FFN test run (to see if I'm in danger of having the baby in the next 2 weeks) and I needed to be monitored while they ran the test. I had to also call someone to watch shay during it. I called my MIL and she came racing to the hospital. I had to be wheeled next door to the hospital and hooked up and I think that freaked Shay out about. Poor sara had to hear all of this second hand via the phone or texts.
So if I passed the FFN, then I'd have to have steroids for the baby to make his lungs mature and stay over night to be monitored. If I failed, it meant no need to worry because they were 100% sure I wouldn't give birth in the next 2 weeks. OY!
After about an hour more, the test came back negative and I was free to go with strick instructions to come back if my water breaks.
That could have been really scary. I'm thrilled it came back negative.
