Yesterday I felt off the whole day. I woke up and immediately after eating breakfast I feel like I had a lump in my stomach. Had nausea before lunch that subsided once I ate. Then had nausea again after work that subsided once I laid down. Then had nausea again after waking up from an evening nap.
I was initially concerned I had possibly picked up a stomach bug, but I wasn't puking and I was actually constipated (though I had three bowel movements that day). After the final BM at 9pm, I started getting irregular rhythmic cramping at the front of my pelvis. The pain would wax and wane; not completely going away but relatively manageable. Being just about 30 weeks, I called triage and they told me to come him.
Got hooked up to fetal monitor and all that lovely stuff involved. Nothing alarming with contractions, thankfully, but the doctors got to see the kind of pain I was having. A transvaginal ultrasound showed my cervix was closed and about 3.5cm long. They had no idea what was going on, but all the bad stuff got ruled out (thankfully!). A catheter was inserted to check urine for bacteria, that came up clean (hey, I also found out my protein is really low in my urine- WOOT!). Still had some cramping when I got home but got to sleep... and here I am!
I really hope this doesn't start being a consistent thing. For false labor, those suckers hurt pretty decently. Not impossible to work through, but absolutely not pleasant.
Thanks to *Vicki* for an AMAZING siggy
