so i'm going to make this very long story short but I have been in the hospital since 4am sat.got out thursday after much begging.I went in fri pm with contractions,to be honest they weren't too bad but my doctor(whom i LOVE and is more like a midwife)asked me to please just let her check me if they picked up,which they had.after monitoring for a couple of hours I was clock watching as I had my first nephew's christening at 11am the next morning(dh is the godfather)and I was going through my mental to do list,not the most relaxing thing i know but hey I am a mum of two,it never ends
: so they let me go at 11pm after checing me(fingertip/thick) and said i had a fever but not too bad.I woke up at 2am in agony but mostly on my lower left side so I didn't really think about it being contractions.then a 3 I was throwing up and shivering so we called the doc,I am screaming at everyone and everything by the time we get there,traffic lights,parking attendant,nurses....you name it..if they got in the way..oh I felt so bad
I was like this at transistion so i thought that the buddha was almost out,not to mention I was grunting through ctx and when they put me on the moitor they were between 130 and 150
: my doc was shocked(and relieved) when she checked me and i was only 1cm.anway my fever spiked,they couldn't figure out what was wrong,after 6 shots of brethine they hadn't stopped,just weakened so they gave me steriods(which killed me to do but what can I say,I was petrified for my little babe)they thought maybe i had a amniotic infection,so I had an amnio,nopewasn't that,then I had an MRI.my stomach was so tender by now that even the monitor wasd making me crawl backwards up the bed
.my doc was apologizing the whole time that I was having to go through all these procedures and needles that I we had agreed wouldn't happen(but this was at my birth)still she felt terrible.
anyway they finally found a minute amount of GBS in my fourth urine and concluded that it had gotten in my kidneys and gave me three rounds of antibiotics hich did take the tenderness away but I am still not convinced!!
so...this means an iv at birth
with GBS antibiotocs and I am in so much agony from ctx that range from 5mins for hours to 10-15mins that I am such a mess and they are going to let me go when it kicks in properly.i am 33 weeks and two days and I am praying for extra time but also I can't deal with these intnse ctx.
i feel like a bad mum wishing it would just be over
sorry to whine and vent,I know I am so lucky in one respect but it has just taken it's toll on me,
anyone have a baby after steriods and it help?the babe's lung maturity was only a 7 on sat and they need to be 40.how soon do the steroids work?
how long will a 33/34 weeeker be in the nicu after steriods?
