The ob said I can be off bedrest and procardia as of friday when I was 36 weeks. I'm dialated to 2 and baby is probably at -1 but contractions are def pushing down into my pelvis. He kept saying "you might go this weekend" which I hate when they say that. By him saying that, that means I will not go this weekend which is fine. I still have 4 weeks.
But since going off the procardia I have been contracting constantly. Most of them just tightening but a few have been starting to get painful. I also have been sick feeling all day. Like i want to throw up, take a bm and crawl into bed. So this could be a looooong 4 weeks if I keep the contractions up like this, and it's hard to tell is labor starting or just bh that keep going on. arg.
Last night I had something come out after peeing, but it was 3 am and dark in the bathroom so I just kept wiping until it was not there and thought "huh I should turn the light on and see what that is". and then proceeded to throw the paper in the toilet and flush (i think i was half asleep). I shocked this morning when i was having brown discharge all day (like my period was ending and a panty liner would be needed). It was probably from the exam but I have never had that before. Not after any paps, dtd, or cervical checks. Oh well. I get to go back to work monday so we shall see how that goes.
