for a visit at the L&D! I fainted in a parking lot while putting groceries in my vehicle and ended up at the hospital in town for 5 hours. I had NST done, checked the baby, checked my bloodwork, my heart and my blood sugar. I knew my blood pressure was up a bit and had little protein in my urine at my last doctor's visit, so they checked all that out for me. It turns out that all is good, bp is great, blood sugar is perfect, EKG done on my heart turned out good. The baby is doing extremely well and there are no concerns there. I also am not anemic as well. So they think my fainting had to do with poor circulation, had a bit of heat stroke and my body just said, "enough and RELAX!"

It was one of those fluke days as a long time acquaintance saw me and saw my fainting and he RAN to catch me so I wouldn't hit the pavement or my vehicle. He was my saint!

I possibly may have UTI or bladder infection and doc sent my culture away for testing to be SURE as I'm not experiencing any symptoms of either infections.

But on the plus side, I got to have a sneak peak of the delivery room as they put me there for the afternoon and I'm pretty impressed by it. Mom and baby stays together, huge bathroom with a huge shower in it, very spacious and comfortable. I think it should be fine for us!

So, I hope the next time I'm back there is when I actually DELIVER my baby there!

Thanks, ladies for your concerns! Today, we took it easy and baby & I are doing very well! I felt kinda stupid for fainting like that but extremely grateful that my long time friend saw me and caught me in time. He told me that he saw me walk out of the grocery store and proceeded to come to say hi to me and saw the event unfold, so he ran and caught me....guess you have to be in the right place at the right time!

Thanks for thinking of me....ya gals are great!
