Update May 17, 2007

Filed under: Uncategorized — the108 @ 4:01 am

Dean’s work sucks a big, fat one.

Dean wasn’t even told about my bleeding until 2:30 in the afternoon…. four hours after they had called and told me he was on his way. In the course of those four hours, I went into labor and by the time I got to the hospital, they were admitting me at 2 cm dilated and 50% effaced… way too much progress for 32 weeks pregnant. To top it off, my contractions never stopped and they were insisting I stay the night so they could keep checking me and administer magnesium and steroids to try to stop the labor and help develop Emi’s little lungs.

Worse yet, the NICU was packed and I was informed that if magnesium wouldn’t stop my labor then I would be transported to another hospital with more room in the NICU.

I begged to be allowed to come home and they resisted and then allowed me so long as I followed the rules. I had to sign a paper stating that I left against their better judgement, and if I have the slightest change, then I have to come back in immediately. I’m not allowed to walk or move and I have to be back at labor and delivery at 6 in the morning and readmitted.

Had Dean’s work notified him and released him hours earlier, they would have stopped these contractions before I dilated. Dean is pissed.

Now I’m home for the time being and trying to not move but I’m not too hopeful that I’ll make it the night without heading back in. My contractions are getting worse, but I’m hoping that that is just from coming home and that if I relax, drink a lot of water and take a warm bath, they’ll slow down a bit.

We need a couple more weeks.

The bleeding is because the baby was putting so much pressure on my nether regions that my perineum split back open. They ran a ton of tests for infections and everything looked good except that they also ran another swab to test for imminent labor. I guess a few days before you give birth your cervix releases some kind of hormone and if you test negative, then great but if you test positive for the hormone, labor is very likely. I tested positive and so we’re watching very closely.

I really hope they can stop this labor and give is some more time. Fingers crossed.

    Good luck kiddo. I know this is a scary time so you really, really need to work on being as calm as possible. Deep breathing, cartoons, naps and good food served to you. Read a good book and draws some pictures.
    Thinking of you and baby girl too. xxxJolie
