I counted my kicks and only got 4 which I thought was pretty good since I'm only 18 weeks. I called the dr. and they told me to go up to L&D and be monitored. While on the way they called me back and said to cancel that because L&D wouldn't see me since I'm not 20 weeks. So they told me to go in and see them. They checked the baby and the hb was 158. They checked my urine and I have a bladder infection. Plus they think it's round ligament pain. They also told me to stay off my feet the rest of the day and rest lots and lots. So I'm off to lay in the bed for awhile. I guess I just scared myself because I was 18 weeks pregnant when Makayla stopped growing. Thanks for all the hugs and prayers. I'll have an ultrasound on the 18th and I can't wait to see the little booger.
Sounds like a pretty good update! 158 is a great heart rate, and, the pain from the ligaments and uti explains a lot. Get lots and lots of rest. Stay hydrated and take care of yourself and your little one We're all thinking about you. You need to keep us updated! I can imagine how worried you've been. Your u/s is just around the corner. I can't wait to see pics!
Glad to hear the babe is doing good. I must say this from experience though, if the pain is mid-back and becomes relentless....go back in! My first kidney stone episode was at about 17 weeks and they thought it was a UTI at first too. Hope you're feeling better soon!
