See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
Welp, I am in labor and delivery because I started having contractions since this morning....3 of them within 10 minutes.
At this time, I was starting to get ready for work.
My hair dryer stopped working, so I went down to the neighbor lady's house, to borrow hers and ended up talking to her for a few minutes and in that time, I had 3 more.
I called my doctors office and asked what they want me to do and they said to come in and get a NST.
Ever since we've gotten here, my contractions are regular, at every 3 minutes.
They checked my cervix almost 2 hours ago and there was nothing but they want to check me again in about an hour and if there's no dilation, they'll give me something to stop the contractions but worst case scenario, I'll be transferred to Pittsburgh where they're more equipped to handle a possible pre-term labor.
Not gonna lie, SO and I are a little worried right now because I'm only 29 weeks 3 days.
Keep me in your thoughts ladies, we don't want to have this baby just yet.
After several hours of being hooked up to the NST equipment, nurses in and out of my room and havig my cervix checked, I was able to be sent home as long as I promised that if my contractions get stronger, that I will go back immediately.
My cervix showed no change, so that made my doctor feel better about sending me home.
I was told that I needed to drink a gallon of water today, stay home from work and rest, so that's what I'm doing.
I felt pretty calm for the most part while in the hospital because the nurses were aweome....they came in and talked to SO and I, they kept close eye on me and my doctor was calling every half hour or so, to check on me, so I really felt looked after by the staff and my doctor.
Now, my goal is to keep this little bean in there as long as possible, so water has to be my best friend from here on out.
I can do this, it's just gonna take some work on mine and SO's part.
