I woke up from a nap yesterday not feeling the greatest. My nurse just happened to peak in on me and I told her how I was feeling crampy and maybe a few contractions. She asked me if I wanted to be hooked up to the monitor and I said yes, even if it was to give me some peace of mind. Well turns out I was having some contractions. And they continued for about an hour. The nurse grabbed Dr. Meyer after his c-section to check things out.
We checked and found that I’m still about 3 1/2 cm dilated. But since I was still having contractions we were going to hydrate and lay on my left side. Try to relax and get these little buggers to stay in longer. At first the doc said I could hydrate with drinking lots of water. I was shocked I got out of an IV that easily! But .. he changed his mind and I ended up getting one anyway. That was I was also ready for surgery if these guys decided to come fast and furious.
We made it thru the night! But I’m still having contractions regularly. Just waiting for the doc to come on his rounds now. Doing the best to lay on my side and relax … I’m just SO uncomfortable. More to come soon!
