So, last night i got to eat dinner late. I was very hungry and was feeling weird. DH fixes me some soup and as I am about to dive into it I got this horrific wave of nausea. I try to eat some soup but I couldn't choke it down. DH gets me my anti-nausea pills and drills me on how much water I had drunk that day. Plenty! Soon the nausea turned into stomach cramps that felt like severe period cramps. Then the back ache. Then the stomach cramps and the back ache began to come together. I was on the floor on my knees rocking back and forth on my exercise ball.
I eventually went to the bathroom to see if it was gas or not and nothing happened. In the meantime DH called the doctors and they wanted to me to go to the hospital to get checked and to see if I was actually having contractions.
By the time my Dad showed up to watch Alex (it was 10:30pm, btw) most of my discomfort had faded (total cramping time about 45min-1hr). So now i was just going to the hospital to make sure that the baby was alright and that something serious wasn't happening.
Well, long story short we get checked in and after a few hours checked right back out. The baby was perfect and happily active. They have no idea what started those cramps.
But I do. All the way home we had the car windows down.
Haha. I've had some awful, awful gas cramps myself. There's been a few times it really scared me! Next time, try drinking some warm water. I know it sounds gross, but it always works for me - either bringing the gas up or moving it down. Glad you're both okay, though! Better safe than sorry!
And the hilarious thing was that as we were waiting for my Dad I was telling DH that in my last DDC there was a woman who went to the ER thinking she was in labor and it turned out that she was just backed up and gassy. I told him that I would die if that were the case with me.
Also, I found out what my priorities are when packing a hospital bag in a panic: Lanolin and a boppy pillow. It didn't occur to me to pack anything else until just before my Dad came, lol.
