stuck in the hospital :(

    So I went into labor & delivery last night because I was having contractions. Turns out I'm 2-3 cm dilated so they admitted me, put me on the monitor. Baby is great, fluid is still low, contractions are coming & going which is a huge pain in the ass. Speaking of pain in the ass, I had the first of two steroid shots for her lungs last night. They should be coming with another one soon, oh joyous day, my butt cheek is twitching. Sigh. I'm on the ward now so at least the bed is more comfy & there's a kitchen. I think I'll go take a shower. I haven't been here in a whole day so I guess I'm rambling! Ugh. I don't even know what we are doing at this point I think it's touch & go. They can't figure out why my fluid is low because baby is fine & the placenta is still working properly, and I haven't ruptured my membranes. I trust them, they're great doctors, but I'm so frustrated.

    Sending you love. I know how scary and exhausting coming and going contractions are, especially before 36 weeks. Spent many nights in the hospital my other 2 pregnancies, and i am getting frustrated myself this time. Wish we were in the same country so we could text. :(

    Damn computer, I lost my post!

    Anyway, best place for you!  At least you're in a "real" bed, I was in the maternity equivalent of the ICU bed for 3 1/2 days...nothin' like being 35 1/2 weeks of beached whale on a glorified gurney!

    You and the baby are going to be just fine!!!  PM me if you need to chat or just need some moral support!
    Bite me, cupcake!

    Oh man, that is frustrating. At least you are in the best place to be. At the very least try and get some rest.

    I went into preterm labor at 34 week in a situation somewhat similar to yours (although no low fluid- I got dehydrated thanks to being forced to go on an outdoor field trip in 95 degree weather).

    I got the shots, and they put me on Nifedipine to stop contractions etc. I was pretty freaked out, but doctors really DO know what they are doing, and @bellabefana is dead right that you are right where you want to be.

    In my case, I got to go home after a week in the hospital (at 35 weeks) stayed on bed rest, and DD came out at 38 weeks 2 days.
    The answer is chocolate. I don't care what the question is.

    @456imamom @sahm1020 @aaa08 @Bellabefana @shouldclean @chocoholic @lakegirl34 @wickedbitchoftheeast thank you guys!. It really is the best place, I love that I can relax a bit here knowing if anything happened we are so well monitored. I just miss my hubby & kiddo so much already. It's a nice quiet little vacation ;) but it's very lonely.

    @aaa08 yes that would be great wouldn't it? I how your little dude comes out soon for you!

    @Bellabefana those beds are hell on wheels. So glad they switched me!

    @chocoholic the steroid shots are so painful but worth it! I'll be 34 Weeks tomorrow.

    FWIW I got my prednisone shots in my arm... Mind you she stabbed me like she was trying to kill me lol but way better than an ass shot. It's worth asking about, if your poor ass is tired of being stuck with those giant needles

    ((Hugs)) honey! I knew something was up when I didn't see you post at all today. Didn't want to seem like a crazy stalker starting a thread about it though...

    Glad you are there and they are watching you closely should things get bad.

    Keep on cooking just a little bit longer sweet baby girl.

    @missmama5 I noticed too, but like @llb I didn't want to seem like a stalker or make you feel bad if you were just taking some time off to rest.
    I think I'm stalking most of the pregnant SM's on here that actively post, and maybe just need to admit I'm a creepy stalker. :\">

    This may just be the optimist in me but someone else is cooking (how good the food is is beside the point), there's tv, some quiet alone time, and ummm you can focus on keeping Avery baking.

    When I was in for my c-section, I liked to make up story lines for the nurses and doctors a la greys anatomy.
  • KrabbyKay
    Posts: 5,914Member
    @squish LOL!!!!! That's a great idea!! I was already in labor, water broken the whole deal, so I didn't get to do any fun stuff. I had been on terb, mag and bedrest at home since the 22nd week, I was already damn near out of my everlovin gourd!!!
    I agree with read, tv, try to relax a little with no children/DH nagging the life out of you, make up stories haha!
  • missmama5missmama5
    Posts: 6,874Member
    @krabbykay haha oh no, no labor for me! Ahhhhh! :) you have a 34 weeker?

    @sunnymomma @squish that's actually what I do, I just eavesdrop like crazy lol I'm so bad. But it passes the time! And you're right, I don't have to cook or clean or anything it is quite nice. Not to mention the food here isn't half bad....maybe because I didn't have to cook it? Lol!

    I loved to peak in rooms. I'm horribly nosey. I also love hospitals and doctors for some reason. I was way too excited to be in the hospital.

    @sunnymomma yep gotta pay for it. I guess that's what happens when the health care is free, somethings gotta give! Lol! There's a common area with TV but the chairs suck and I'm tired & sore. I'll have to find out about the charger, good idea!

    Hmm. If you need company & aren't too sore, ask if they get that OWN, Oprah station. Lance Armstrong interview tonight. If you turn that on, that should suck in some staff to keep you company!
