Yesterday I posted about losing my MP. Talked to the doc, she said that was ok, just to be watching for regular contractions. Walked the mall and walked at work. Which apparently worked-sort of.
AT 1:30 am woke up with pretty intense contractions and I began timing them...They were about 7-10 minutes apart and I was having cramping when I wasn't having the actual contractions. So I call the hospital and they have me come in.
I get settled in, get checked and I'm still 2cm/50%effaced. They monitor my contractions which they see are pretty frequently and some are definately big contractions. They call my doctor, who suggests Nubane, to slow down the contractions. Nurse injects that right into my behind! Other than that medicine made feel drunk, tired, & crazy loopy. It did nothing. I still had the big contractions, just took away some of the little contractions.
So I suck it up and deal with being uncomfortable for the next few hours until Dr. Dameron can get in. Finally she arrives and checks me again. Still 2cm and 50-60% effaced. At this point I'm holding back tears. She tells me if I would have dialted just half a centimeter she would break my water to get everything going. Instead she gives me some Ambian to take at home, and hopefully when I wake up I'm in full blown labor. She told me to go home take a nap and when I wake up she hopes I call her and tell her I'm in labor. (Me too)
She told me the baby is perfectly fine, lungs are ok, everythings working great so if I deliver, I deliver....I just hate this stupid waiting game! Right as we were leaving the music came over the speaker that means a baby was born. I lost it, totally started bawling. I just keep thinking "I want MY baby!"
Sorry, just needed to vent to other pregant ladies....No one else would understand
