The Bump Baby Registry
Now is the perfect time to start your Baby Registry!START A REGISTRY
Contractions started Saturday night while at a party. They were irregular and not painful. I woke up Sunday to more contractions and figured it was Braxton Hicks. Throughout Sunday they became more regular and constant. Called (sarah) MW and she was wonderful. She kept checking on me and once the contractions got to 6 an hr we knew it was time to go to the ER. ??Away to the hospital DH and I go at 10PM last night. Contractions picked up even more once I was hooked up the the monitors. To stop the contractions, I was given a shot of terbutaline. It made me feel like I drank 5 cups of coffee but other than that I felt fine. Instantly the contractions stopped. Hurray!??I was given the fetal fibronectin test which determines if you will have the baby in the next 2 weeks. Even though I'm 50% effaced, it came back negative and we feel relieved. Cervix was also check and its closed. By 1:00AM we were back home. I was given orders to rest and drink lots of fluids. So my plan is to start with a new practitioner that is a CNM who can proscribe medicine to stop anymore preterm labor. However I'm still set on my natural water birth. My original MW (Sarah) is fine with me switching back to her at 37 weeks to deliver the baby. I just wish she were a CNW so I wouldn't have to do all this switching around!Hope you ladies have a great day!
