Best Moment (s) this week: knowing he is still currently baking
I have had a very drama and complication filled last couple of weeks. Where do I begin.
- Wednesday May 20th got admitted to triage for being dehydrated. You would think I would learn by now. I was dealing with a sinus infection though and it was winning.
- Saturday May 23th I went to sit on a cooler and it rolled out from underneath me. I landed on my butt and bruised my tailbone.
- Sunday May 24th starting having cramping. Went to the hospital and got hooked up to the monitors. Determined I was having contractions, but no dilation. Ended up staying in the hospital overnight just to make sure contractions did not turn regular and no other complications happened from the fall.
- Wednesday June 3rd I had my normal appointment. Due to still having contractions and pressure down there they decided to check my cervix. Turns out I was already dilated 1.5cm. The Dr. decided she wanted me to come back on Friday and have a fetal fibronectin test and check my cervix again to see if I have dilated anymore.
-Friday June 5th, had the fetal fibronectin test, which came back negative, checked my cervix, which stayed the same. They also ended up doing a non-stress test. The nst showed in 30 minutes I had 5 regular contractions, but I only felt 1 of them, which is a good sign. My Dr. however decided to send me to the hospital to get the steroid shots to help strength the babys brain, heart, and lungs quicker just in case.
Later that evening I started losing my mucus plug.
-Saturday June 6th, I had to go back to the hospital to get the second dose of the steroid.
I just like keeping everyone on their feet. Austin just needs to keep on baking.
