If you didnt read my other post on Sunday I started to feel like I was getting my period. Well on Sunday night I started to spot some. So Monday I called my Dr (my midwife was gone) and she said to go to L&D to get checked because it sounded like pre-term labor. So I got DS into daycare and decided to take my 2 girls with me. Since I didnt really think I was in labor I just thought I had my bacterial infection back. The hospital is 70 miles away from here. My parents were at a retirement party in the same town so I met my mom and she went with to the hospital so my girls could go with her for a while. They said they maybe wanted to stay in the car for a while so I said that was ok and left my keys with my mom. So off to L&D..... I was put on monitors and no contractions (I was monitored for 1 and 1/2 hours before my Dr came in to check me. She said I had white cells in my urine. She did a pap and checked my cervix (which was closed). Come to find out I have a bladder infection the starts of a kindey infection and my bacterial infection AGAIN!!!! So I said that since everything seemed good my mom could go and leave the kids there. I waitted about an hour for my meds and to be released from the hospital. I was sent home with meds and I went to get ready. OH CRAP!!!!! (did you see this coming?) My mom had my keys still!!! And she was already back at work 70 miles from where I was. LOL!!! Luckly I called a friend and we hung out with her and her kids till my husband could come with my keys. LOL!!!! I am sure thats what the Dr meant by go home and take it easy. Hey I did learn something though - Did you know you can call the car dealership with your VIN and they will get you a key? I didnt till I got home. Looks like I will know for next time.
So I am on more meds but everything looks great.
