Well this week has been crazy! I thought I should tell everyone just to update.
On Wednesday, I started contracting at 11:00 am and didn't stop. It just got worse and worse throughout the day. It got so painful that I could hardly breathe. I stayed on the couch all day. Finally my mom told me I needed to go to the hospital. So I waited for Jacob to come home from work at 6:00pm. Then I started to feel much better...I DID NOT want to go the hospital. Anyways, we ended up going to my parents house to eat dinner since I didn't feel good enough to cook.
Then the contractions came worse and in my back. It was the worse pain I have ever felt in my life! So we headed off to the emergency room where they took me up to the maternity floor to look at me. Little did I know...I was contracting every 2 minutes!!! Crazy! And then they checked me and I was already dilated to a 1 and 50% effaced. So I had to spend the night and didn't get home until 10:00pm Thursday night.
They were giving me IVs, drawing my blood a million times and giving me shots of tribulene to stop the contractions. They put a monitor on me to monitor the contractions and one to monitor the baby's heartbeat. For awhile, his heartbeat was in the 180's! Scary! So anyway, I'm now on bedrest and can't drive, cook, clean or go to the store. I also am sick with the flu at the same time. It stinks. So we just moved in with my parents for now until I get off bedrest or have the baby.
I'm still having contractions every day so it is not fun! they are definately painful! I just hope they don't get too bad because I do not want to go back! And I'm going to the doctor at least once a week now. I just hope I can hold him in for at least a few more weeks!!
