Contractions

Monday when we got back from Duluth my back was killing me. I ended up just staying home and resting. Around 3 am Tuesday morning I woke up to really bad cramps. It felt like it was that time of the month times ten. This lasted all morning. I called the nurse line around 8 am and they said that I should come in to the hospital. Brent and I arrived at St.Johns around 8:30 am. They hooked me up to all the monitors and were able to see that I was having contractions. At first they thought that it was a UTI but after testing my urine they ruled that out.

After they talked to my doctor she decided to give me a medicine that is suppose to stop contractions. They gave me one dose and they stopped for a little while then they were about 10 min apart and then were about 5 min apart. They gave me another dose and thought that it was working until the contractions started again. After the third dose the contractions seemed to stop. We spent about 8-9 hours there trying to get the contractions to stop and Brent and I were ready to go home.

I felt fine all night until about 9:44 this morning and cramping started again. We have a doctors appointment at 4:30. My doctor but me out of work today and will probably have me out all week.

On top of all this my boss would not return my calls. I called him 3 times and emailed him 2 times. After once last voice mail he emailed me with no concern about how I was doing but just to say how busy they were and OF COURSE I WASN'T THERE. The stress of the way they treat me and having all these problems is more than I feel I can handle right now. Thank god for Brent he is always there to make me see the bigger picture and to make me feel better.

Oh a good note Brent starts his new job Monday...

I know this pregnancy has been kind of tough on you, I hope the contracations slow down until you get a little further along. Is bedrest being considered?? This happened to Michelle with Bennett starting at 28 weeks and she had him at 35 weeks after bedrest

I hope you feel better. As far as your work, that's frustrating. Well now you have your blog as documentation of your issues and log for the doctor that if something were to happen, you might be able to use it down the road.

I hope your contractions subside just for a little longer. Keep us posted. Try to take it easy. I know, easier said than done.

I hope everything is ok. Jman needs to cook a little longer.
That sucks that work is treating you like that. Maybe it is time to start your leave.

Isn't pregnancy full of all sort of highs and lows? The most important thing is that you take care of yourself and that Jacob is born healthy. NOTHING ELSE MATTERS. All will right itself in time. I am looking forward to seeing you tomorrow. Hugs, from your Auntie Debbie

Hope you are doing much better now. Funny that Robyn says that Jman needs to cook a little longer because that is what I told Brent too!! You guys take care and let me know if you need anything.
