tuesday was my 33week appt. i had an ultrasound that showed he was ahead another week but they didnt want to change my due date again. he weighs around 5 lbs. YEAH! they said everything looked great and that he was quite a chunk. and REALLY low.
on the way home from the appt i stopped at taco bell. came home and scarfed it down. yuuuum. and was sooooo sick. i felt like i needed to use the restroom, but couldnt. this started around 1. i would walk around, try to use the restroom, get on my hands and knees with my butt up in the air. blah blah blah. finally i COULDNT get off the floor. called my husband and sister in law. hubby took me to labor and del. i was having contractions. grrrrr. every TWO MINUTES! dilated to a 3 and over 60% effaced. i sure felt like an idiot for trying to push in the bathroom!
so, they put me on the magnesium, that did nothing. then the breathene with the magnesium, that worked until the breathene wore off. so they gave me another shot, and it seemed to calm things down. they gave me two steroid shots for the babys lungs just in case. they took me off everything last night to see how i would do. i started contracting again around 3 this morning. they now have me on something weird and drops under my tongue. i am so out of it i have no idea what im on anymore.
all i know is this bed is horrible and im not allowed to leave it. they were making me use a bed pan, but i finally graduated to restroom privileges last night. thank goodness!
i walk like brand new bambi and i say the most ridiculous things. yes im pretty drugged. thanks for bearing with me.
most importantly, the baby is doing great. this hospital does not have a nicu or anything so if things take a turn for the worst, we will be transferred early enough so that we can stay together, my dr promised. he said that we should pray for 2-3 weeks more baking. i will be on the strictest bed rest and to do NOTHING but bathroom. i have to have someone there 24/7 to wait on me. ew. i LOVE being alone. but ill do anything for this little escape artist. and try to enjoy being catered to. hahahaha. i hate attention. thanks for listening to me. im soooooo bored in this hospital room.
Wow, what's with all this babes wanting to come early? I'm so glad that he's still baking for now and its also good to hear that he is measuring ahead....so if he does come, he'll weigh a bit more and be a bit stronger. The bedrest must be terrible, but at the same time its nice to know that the light at the end of the tunnel is having your sweet little baby to hold. Hang in there and thanks for updating us!!
Wow, Mistie!! I'm so sorry you are going through this, hun!! I had a similar episode last week, but I haven't dialated as far as you are. Our doctors are so different though, mine is ready to let my little one come but I suppose that has to do with having a very good NICU and my having been closely monitored for so long. I hope your little guy stays in there longer for you!!!! Keep baking Mason, it's not time yet!!!!!!!
