So Monday night I was having this weird pain in my side. DH kept wanting to take me to the hospital and I kept telling him no I was fine. I was still having it the next morning and I was on the phone with my mom and I was telling her about it she told me to call my doc, and even though I told her I was fine she insisted so I called my doc. They asked me when the pain had started and what it felt like and where on my side it was, and about a million other questions as well. They sent me to L&D when I got there they were waiting on me(doc's had called them) and had me strapped up to machines in minutes. Well turns out the pain I was having was contractions, they just didn't feel anything like what had been described to me so I hadn't realized that was what they were. We got them stopped, and they did a whole bunch of tests, they found some protein in my urine but no other signs of pre-e but I am having to watch closely for more signs. I got to go home about 5 on Tuesday, with instructions of absolutely NO LIFTING whatsoever and a modified bed rest instructions. Which means I had to send 'my' girls back to their bio mom, ugh ugh ugh. How the heck am I suppose to relax when I am worrying about them the whole time? Had my appt on Thursday and doc rechecked everything, baby girl looks good but I am still restricted on what I can do.(Oh by the way did I mention that now that I know what the contractions feel like I am realizing I have actually been having quite a few of them and have been for about a week before my L&D visit and still getting some now). Then on Friday I had to drop the oldest kid off at her mother's as well for the weekend. Then things got a little crazy again, about an hour/hour and half after that I get a call from CPS wanting to know if I have the girls right now or if they are with their mother, asked me several questions. Come to find out their has been another report(we have all been waiting on this knowing it would happen just not when) on the bio-mom and they were going back in to check on the girls, I haven't heard anything back from them yet, but fully expect to sometime next week(I know what that house looks like). So I might be getting 'my' girls back and I am trying to figure out how I am going to have twin 2 year olds, while on modified bed rest and absolutely no lifting allowed. So I've had a long week and maybe having a long one next week. I really want baby girl to stay put a few more weeks, but with the contractions, and everything else going on I am starting to worry that it's not going to happen and of course the worrying is not going to help anything either.
