I saw a posting in the UC forum this morning that said she was admitted to the hospital, started on turbutalene and given an epidural.

http://www.mothering.com/discussions...d.php?t=605255

My prayers are with you mama and baby!

Mama to ds 11, ds 7, dd 5, dd 2, and dd born on 6/17/12!

Holy cow! I hope everything is okay! I'll keep Mama in my thoughts and send positive vibes in the southwestern direction. Anyone know if her DH is home or away?

The hospiatal told me.. i was no longer my Doc patient and i was to go to there hosptail.. hummm HELLL NO... my i went to see my Docotor today and she was SOOO PISSSED.... she freaked out on the staff the gloded me out to the other hospital..sooo she checked my and said YEs i am 2 Cm dialted, but not all the way, i was maybe, barley a 1 at the top.. i had a sono and grow
the scan and she is about 5 lbs 7oz.. soo she is doing good... i got the steroids shot to speed her lungs up.... Soo my plann is to stay prego fpr at least anothe three weeks and from theni will be 36ish Wks and all is fair game from then on... i may not be on the UC path still, but at least my Doctor will to a VABC.. which IMO is much better than a C/S...Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers.. i was sooo scared and crying.. but im glad i had ppl thinking about me and our baby..
Thanks you again..

Oh, Mamacita, that sounds awful! I'm glad they were able to stop the ctx and you are home with baby still where she needs to be. I would have been SOOOOO pissed at the staff at that hospital.

Fingers crossed things return to semi-normal now.

I am so glad that you all are ok. That is a scary thought of having the baby early. I am glad that you all will be ok and will at least get your VBAC still. Good luck to you. And sending vibes that baby will get comfy and want to stay in there a little while longer.

Mamacita, did they ever say anything to you like that you have a small epidural space? Your experience with it sounds a lot like my experience with first. They told me that I should have never gotten an epi and the person should have realized that after 7 pokes:
I am glad that you are home though now and that your baby is still inside.

Thank you so much for updating us - we were worried about you! What a crappy experience at that other hospital. I'm so glad you didn't end up giving birth there. I can imagine how that might have turned out. Are you on bed rest now for the next few weeks?

You know, just because we were talking about making a birth announcements sticky doesn't mean that you need to go out and have a baby to fill up the list! Seriously though, I'm glad that you are ok and that your little lady is still where she belongs. Keep cooking, Gabriella! And you take good care of yourself, Mamacita.

Mamacita - so glad you are home and Gabriella is still on the inside. I hope you learned your lesson about the dangers of DtD I hope she stays cooking for a nice long while - but good to know some prostaglandins can help you out if you need them... So sorry for the traumatic experience at the hospital - at least you know what to prepare for if you end up there, bottom-of-the-barrel care That's so infuriating!

I am glad everything is ok and sorry you had such a dreadful experience.
I was put on terb at 28 weeks with #2 and know it is no picnic
Not sure if this would work for you but I had contractions all day on Saturday, not BH but the wrap around your hips and grab your back kind. I drank a bunch of water and got in the bathtub and as long as I was submerged and laying on my side they would calm down but if I was sitting up or semi-reclined they came back.
They were definitely uncomfortable but I wouldn't describe them as painful. Saturday evening while driving I timed them at 3-4 minutes apart but not getting more intense really. I stopped at the vitamin store and picked up some Boiron homeopathic magnesia phosphorica as well as a good cal/mag supplement. I took double doses of the homeo and took two of the cal/mag supplements and the contractions faded after less than an hour and I slept just fine.
Contractions started up again last night, I did the same thing and they went away.
I am not sure if it would work for you but it's worth a try and MUCH easier on you and baby than terb.

Good luck,
Keri
