im in the hospital on bedrest.

Friday night (5.21)i had bad diarreah, i blew it off like it was nothing because usually certain foods hurt my tummy anyway.

after going 4 times i got concerned. i drank water and layed down and had cramps. i went to pee and wiped and i was loosing chunks off plug/show and i knew then that the cramps wernt poo cramps they were contractions!

i woke hubby and we headed to l&d they checked me i was a 3 and completely effaced. they gave me a steriod shot for his lungs and stopped contractions. they wanted to keep me until sunday morning so they can monitor and give me the 2nd steriod shot.

Well, saturday came around and things were great. i was feeling fine. they had the contractions stopped and they were getting ready to discharge me and send me home on complete bedrest. i was told to go pee and give a last urine specimine and i went to sit back in bed and felt a trickle. i thought i peed on myself some. i went ot get up and then SWOOOSH. my water broke full force everywhere.

 i screamed for the nurses and they got me up on the bed and checked me i was still a 3. they had to call the university hospital because they didnt have a nicu at that one. i got flown to here and was checked by speculum and was still a 3. they are giving me antibiotics to keep infection from coming and im on procardia every 3 hrs. im on complete hospital bedrest they are gonna continue the procardia to keep contractions from coming until i hit 32 weeks.

once saturday comes they wont stop labor because my water has been broken for so long. they are monitoring connor and hes doing great. there are still pockets of fluid around his boy parts and left side of his head.  

right now its a waiting game. i started bleeding this morning but not to bad. they keep checking on the baby and such but arnt doing any vaginal exams until they see that im in full blown labor.

im now 31weeks and 5 days and it will be great if we can make it a few more days at the least.

thought id add my original due date was 7.24.10
