Looks like I may be first. . .

post #1 of 50
Thread Starter 

My water broke at work yesterday afternoon.  I was 33 weeks yesterday.  I called Dr. and headed to the hospital.  They've got me on antibiotics, steriods to mature the lungs and bed rest.  My fluid at my BPP on Tuesday was a little over 10, today it measured 3.7. . . so I was definitley ruptured.   The nurse checked me when I got there, and my cervix was high, and very tightly closed  - she said not even a pinhole dialated.   This afternoon my contractions have picked up some and I'm having some pink tinged discharge, so I'm hopeful I'll continue progressing.  I get my second steroid injection this evening and they are planning on delivering via C-Section Saturday morning if nothing is looking more favorable. . . I was really hoping for a VBAC, but overall, I want what's best for the baby in the end. 


Maybe send me some labor vibes tonight and tomorrow if you can, I'll keep you all updated.   Right now contractions are 5 - 20 minutes apart, and not strong feeling at all.  Occasionally, I'll have one that I can really feel, but nothing painful, maybe just a little distracting. 


I'm really loving my Dr - He's being great, neo-natologist is great, he was one of dd's Dr.'s 12 years ago, although I don't remember him. 


FYI, right now my Bishop's score is a 1, so it's looking like a probable C-section.

Good vibes for you and your baby.  Sounds like you have a great team caring for you and your LO.  Rest up and let the steroids do their thing! :)

I was just reading through spinningbabies' exercises. Maybe some of them will help? Sometimes it's just comforting to be able to do something while waiting for progress, and sometimes those make a big difference.


Sending you thoughts toward a positive experience full of respect and flexibility and ending with health and vitality all around.
