Ugh, I said I wouldn't have to go back to L&D until it was time but we ended up making a trip there last night. I had been feeling crampy and sore all day, plus I had absolutely NO energy. I literally slept all day and still wanted more sleep. I also (tmi, sorry) had really loose bowel movements the past 3 days. So.. I went to get off the couch and go up to bed and had a gush of fluid! Completely freaked out. Called the docs, and got on the road down to Bethesda. When we got there they hooked me up to all the machines and everything, then after 30 mins of monitoring they did a pelvic exam. Everything looked good, I was very very slightly dialated, but not enough to be concerned. They ran swabs and such, turns out I have bacterial vaginosis.. which I hear is very common during pregnancy. So now I get to be on antibiotics (vaginal suppository.. yay) for the next few days and I get to take it easy.. no cleaning! YAY!
All in all an interesting night. They did an ultrasound and she's STILL breech. Gosh baby, turn around will you?

Glad it hear everything is OK! Did they say what the gush of fluid was? I would have totally freaked out. Sorry about the infection...what a pain. And hopefully your little one will decide to start turning in a few weeks...she still has plenty of time!
