I was really naseaus Friday and Saturday, I wasn't able to eat or drink either day. Sunday I woke up still unable to eat or drink. I started having cotractions and when I went to the bathroom thought I had spotted a little ( I now think this may have been in my urine). I had a low fever of 99.1 and horrible lower back pains. I went to the ER because my contractions were getting worse. When I went in they said I was dehydrated (from checking my urine, but they didn't day if they had checked for an infection) and gave me zofran and made me drink lots of sprite. They said I was having contractions but they thought it wa due to dehydration. So they gave me and IV and then they did a vaginal ultrasound to check my cervix. They said it wasn't dialated and it was so thick that even if my contractions were to get worse the baby wasn't going to come out. So then they gave me Vistiril to slow my contractions but it didn't do anything they even pointed this out on the monitor. I was in alot of pain and they asked if maybe it was the baby moving! I was like "NO, I know how it feels when my baby moves and it definately does not hurt!" So the doctor said to think of this as my new "normal". So I am supposed to deal with having horribly painful contractions for two more months?!?! I am so frustrated!! When I finally got home last night and laid down my contractions eased off but I still had sharp pains in my lower back. I am thinking I may have a Kidney infection. They asked last night if it burned when I peed and it didn't then but when I went this morning it burned a little but not as bad as I am used to when I have UTI's. My urine is dark orange and so far I have only peed 3 times today. I rested and drank cranberry juice, I want to drink water but the taste makes me gag. I am going to call the doctor in the morning, until then do you know of anything that can help ease pain from a kidney infection or that might help it from getting worse?
