So I go to my appointment yesterday and while I am there the Dr. tells me I need to check into the hospital becuase I am spilling some protein in my urine. She wants to be sure this is not the start of preclamspia.
So I get to the hospital, they send me up to L & D and I stand in a hall for an hour waiting for a bed. They put me in this curtain area I can hear woman in labor all around me, there are 5 of us in ONE ROOM!
I sit there for another hour no one comes. finally a nurse comes and says oh this monitor doesn't work we need to move you. I end up in my own room, with a T.V and a big bed... ahh I can deal with this.
They hook up Elliot to monitors and get a urine sample and then 2 more hours go by. A Dr. with a thick accent comes in. I said how long do I have to wear this monitor and he says FOREVER. I smile thinking he is kidding... he is not kidding.
He goes you have a rare blood disorder in pregnancy. Your blood is clotting too quickly, your kidneys are failing and we need to have this baby tonight. He says I will need a transfusion and wont be awake for my c-section. Nick is like freaking out. I am like wait wait wait... you can tell all this from URINE?
No, he says he has my blood results. I said no one has taken my blood. He argues with me for 5 minutes, shows me the paperwork with my name my birthday my SS#... I show him my arms.. NO BLOOD!
He calls in a nurse they realize someone has been released who REALLY needs to come back.. and someone is also in a crap load of trouble for not reading the wrist band!
So then he says... well this tracing is no good. We need a better tracing. I said I have heard his heartbeat for 2 hours. He said there are no variables, your baby could be brain dead. I look at Nick and he is not sad anymore, he is pissed.
He tells me to get on my side, plays with the monitor for like 30 seconds and says your too fat we will have to get a bio something profile. I was pretty much at my witts end there. I said why don't you go call the woman YOU SENT HOME and send in a nurse to fix my monitor.
FINALLY a woman comes in takes my blood and an hour later I am driving home. What a night! lol
