oh.....I never said whatever became of the contractions I was having during my appt this morning. I came home after doctor checked me and was still feeling them. Drank water and stayed in bed since on bedrest anyway......and kept having them. I called because they were starting to be regular for a few hours but never gained in intensity. I was assuming they were BH but I called anyway and they said to comei in just to be sure since I had some other preterm labor symptoms. I have been having flu like symptoms for the past two days and today had 3 loose BMs within 10 minutes. They ended up giving me zofran for my "blahness" and it did thankfully help with all my heartburn and then a liter of fluids. Can't really say I've perked up much but the contractions did go away. None were measuring all that big on the monitor, so I told them I was sorry I had wasted their time for just BH contractions.
I can't believe how many people talk about nursing staff that is so rude about things. Maybe it's because I am in a small town (about 10000) I don't know. The staff always has me come in because it's "better safe than sorry" Even my doctor came to see me as I was walking out the door to say he was glad I called. When I told him I hate to waste people's time he laughed and said, "better to waste our time and NOT have a baby at home!" Of course, it was good I came in to get the fluids because obviously all the water I think that I drink is keeping me hydrated obviously isn't enough.
