Well I spent all day friday in Labour and Delivery being assessed and then put on a ward with new babies and slow labour women for 8 hours. The pain I had in the top of my bump was not normal. it was a inflamed something which caused severe heart burn. This was caused by dehydration, my something I forgot wat they said was not lubricated by my bodies waters enough to work properly. With it being squashed anyway its hard to work so being not wet enough it was harder. I had 8 hours of IV fluids, loads of meds, a anti sickness injection in my butt which still hurts. A weeks worth of meds yet to have and a very harsh word about making sure I drink water.

They did want to keep me in for another 8 hour IV fluids but I said hell no. Those beds were killing me.

Thanks for the well wishes, they said when my meds are done in 5 days I should be 100% well more than 100% now i know I was dehydrated and feeling bla. x

Glad it turned out okay! I know it's difficult sometimes to remember to drink enough water every day. So important though... I've also had days when I haven't drank enough water and I pay for it every time!

Its soooo easy to become dehydrated...sounds like you've just got some added complications there! Glad to hear you're better now -- now stay out of l&d until you're supposed to be there!
