I had been miserable all weekend (sounds like a lot of you ladies have had the same kinda stuff going on!) nausea, with or without vomiting, diarrhea, horrible cramps, headaches, low back pain, some really good strong contractions mixed in with my braxton hicks, and generally just feeling "off". I am also still dealing with pulled groin muscles, and limited movement due to that. I had called my doctor, and with my existing health issues, and with the pregnancy being as rough as it is, they were ok with me waiting to see my doctor this week (I see her tomorrow).

Yesterday I was having more intense contractions that were starting in my back and I had a lot more nausea. I also started losing some clear fluid that was pretty watery. I went in last night, and they took me back for the amnio swab (sidenote...omg OW! That little q-tip hurt like crazy! A little tiny cotton swab!!) and it came back negative (kinda relieved, but with him being so big and healthy, Doctor said at last visit we're not stopping labor and he's ready to come - I was half hoping to get some relief and get him out ) and it was change of shift. New nurse brought me water (another side note, Im in love with the hospital ice... I eat like 2 cups of it every time I go ) and she said we were waiting on my urine results. She came back about an hour later, said I had small amounts of protein in my urine, but nothing they were concerned with. She handed me a discharge sheet and said "if you experience any of these, please just call and come back..." She reads the list. Headaches with blurry vision, low dull back pain that wont go away, painful menstrual like cramps, vomiting, gas pains with diarrhea, and so on..... I say "Well I have those right now, have had them all weekend."

She smiles at me for like ten awkward seconds, tells me to have a good night, and leaves.

Ummmmmmmm....... ok? You want me to step into the hallway, call, and come back in? Or am I supposed to go home and pretend you didn't say any of that? I just went home, because I had been told previously I was ok to go until I see my doc, and there was no amniotic fluid. I called my doctor today and she suggested a few things to keep me comfy until I see her tomorrow.

Im just kinda upset they didnt ask me any questions when I came in, didnt address my concerns with the "come back in" warning signs and didnt do a cervical check. I had switched hospitals because I wasnt comfortable with the one I had chosen after I was given narcotics without consent... now I have little faith in the new one being any better with their care, AND I find out after I leave that last week that hospital was in the news for accidentally switching babies in the nursery and the moms had been nursing the wrong babies.

So, Im about ready to deliver this baby myself! I know Im extra critical being a nurse myself... but seriously, my comrades are making us all look bad.

I was happy to come on tonight and see Im not alone! Although Im not happy some of you are having a rough time too Im ready for all of us to have healthy babies and be home and safe with our little ones!

Rant over.... Promise.

Yea.. We are all biting the dust a bit over here. Ha- I think I speak for everyone when I say we are all experiencing the typical preggo stuff, most of us wondering what the heck is going on. This time of year stinks too for those 24 hour funky bugs. Madison is all the time give Dh and I something. Anyways, sorry your visit wasn't pleasant and you left with little reassurance. I just don't know what is going on with some places. feel better..
