Because my water broke first, I have to go in to the hospital to make sure baby is doing okay but if everything's alright I get to come back home until labour starts or until tomorrow.
Good luck, Kellybeth! I told you we were on a similar path ;)
Back home again after getting my antibiotics for GBS and confirming that my water did indeed break. Contractions have definitely kicked in but I haven't gotten around to start timing them yet. I've had one that was super intense and a lot of little ones so far. Eating some food now to prepare for what's ahead of me and planning to head back to the hospital in 3 hours for another round of meds.
Wow :) So exciting... Happy to hear your water broke Teles!
Mine is still leaking slooooowly. On the advice from telehealth and my doula we're going to head to the hospital since it's been 14 hours since the rupture and no sign of labour progressing. I'm pretty upset about it because I feel like I'm getting on the intervention treadmill, the hospital here won't let you leave once your membranes have ruptured (not sure if that's just VBAC) so I'll probably be induced.
I'm going to go shower and get into a better mindset now. :)
Well... they said it wasn't amniotic fluid so we were allowed to go home.
Which I'm happy about since I wasn't also having contractions, but it would have been nice to have amniotic Fluid and contractions AND A BABY!
Oh well... even if it's not amniotic Fluid, at least it's a lot of pinkish discharge which means stuff is happening so I'm happy.
