So my headache was so bad yesterday that I couldn't eat or do anything. Only thing I was doing was BFing Jacob. So my dr had me admitted again and they did another blood patch and I believe that it took this time. The first time they couldn't get enough out blood out of my arm but yesterday they got more than enough so hopefully it won't come back this time. I never knew a headache could hurt so bad. I've been useless since my baby was born.
Brandy how is your headache? I hope yours doesn't come back either.
I called the office. I was told to go to the ER if I need to. That doesn't make me happy. I'm not dragging Archer there and I'm not gonna be away from him for hours
I'd be a bit pissed if they told me to go to the ER. You will sit in the ER all day. My dr had me come to their office and then they took me over the labor and delivery so I didn't have to deal with the ER. Thankfully my second blood patch seems to have worked and the headaches have not come back. Brandy I hope that yours goes away soon. It is so hard to take care of a new baby with a terrible headache.
Melissa it really makes me mad. He has done a lot of things recently that bothers me. I read the report the nicu dr. gave me to give to the ped today. It said I had light meconium staining. My OB never told me in two conversations I initiated when I asked about details of the surgery! I'm going to bring it up next time I see him. Whether or not it affected him he ended up in the nicu. I would like to have known all known issues we were up against.
And Brandy WOW some DR's really amaze me with the crap they pull.... and the bad thing is you never find out they are not the best DR until its to late. I hope your head gets better soon and you can get more answers as to why the NICU.
My head feels better. Of course I am sucking down caffeine non-stop all day long. I guess it's helping.
My OB was great until toward the end. So frustrating! OH the L&D nurse prepping me for surgery asked about this baby's growth restriction! UM what?! Come to find out he was measuring behind in February. Enough so that I was monitored. I thought he was monitoring me because another of my babies had it.
