So all day I was cramping on and off. I called the dr. and they told me to drink two tall glasses of water and lay down and if it goes away then it was just dehydration. Well I didn't think that was the case so I did what they told me and waited a few hours. Still I was cramping. It didn't feel like contractions or anything but I thought maybe a kidney infection or uti or something like that. So I debated on going to the hospital because it always takes so long to be seen. Anyways I just couldn't live with myself if something went wrong and I didn't go in. So we went. I got there and got sent up to L&D right away they hooked the baby up to the fetal monitor and the one to check for contractions. She was doing good, started getting active once we were hooked up to the monitor (figures..huh?) and although I was having very minor contractions it wasn't anything to worry about. They checked my cervix and it was still closed so they left me hooked up for another hour and sent me home on pelvic rest for now. My urine was clean so they said it wasn't kidney stones or infections. I felt better just getting to hear her moving around and feel her too. They told me that it was most likely just round ligament pain. Now that I know that I can sleep tonight! My next appt. with the dr. is next thursday and they will be doing another u/s then too just for my peace of mind since we lost abby somewhere around 26-27 weeks. I will be 24 weeks then.

It was pretty hard going into the labor unit though. Last time I was there was when I left holding only a teddy bear. I was so scared the same thing was going to happen. At least now I am feeling a little better. Hannah and I are both doing fine!

RLP can be so frustrating, it can seem like so many other things when its just RLP, I have aches along the bottom of my tummy and they say its the ligament pain. Im really glad that everything is okay. And Rhonda is about 20 weeks you are going have a much much better exit at l&d and I cant wait to see the pictures!

Rhonda! I'm so glad that things are ok, how scary I bet that was. Your pregnancy seems to be going by so quickly though! To me anyways haha. It seems as if you were just announcing that beautiful bfp yesterday. I'm so excited for December when we all get to meet her!!!

I'm so glad to know mine is going by fast for someone because it isn't going by fast enough for me haha. I'm so greatful to be pregnant and to have made it this far, but I'm so uncomfortable these days and still have at least 6 weeks! Dr. Says its because she is already head down so I guess that's good!

I'm on here almost everyday checking on you though! I just don't always sign on because I always look from my phone. (it hurts to sit in the computer chair lately )
