And spent 3 hours in Labor and Delivery last night?
Yesterday morning, before posting my blog, I woke up and felt a...gush. Followed by some real wetness on my thigh and blanket. Yum.
I remembered one of my friends saying that her doctor told her to lay down for a little while, and if there was another gush, that it was probably her water. So I did, and it didn't happen again. But things felt...a little...slick? Or, something. For the rest of the day.
This was after I was up all night with really stiff Braxton-Hicks every half hour, followed by 5 minutes of kicky baby retaliation with every BH. It was a fun night, and by morning I was nauseated and my entire abdomen just felt tight and kind of sore.
So I did what any responsible mother-to-be would do: I ignored the entire situation and went to my hilite appointment! Because screw labor! I need beauty!
After my hilite appointment, I decided that I was a bit perplexed by the feeling of sitting in wet underwear all day and decided to call the OB, who decided to send me to Labor and Delivery because it all just sounded a lot like I was leaking amniotic fluid.
As it turns out, my iPhone battery was dead because I surfed the internet during my entire appointment, so I had to stop at Wal-Mart for a phone charger to call Mark and my mom. When I got to the check out line, the electronics guy told me that I was wasting my money on the charger I bought, and gave me one that was half the price. Sweet!
Until I plug it in and get the message: "This accessory is not compatible with your iPhone." Fucker.
So I went to Radio Shack, where they sold me the correct, sufficiently expensive car phone charger, and I was on my way! To embarrass myself! In Labor and Delivery!
So I started this entry this morning, with the intentions of finishing up after my appointment today. But, as it turns out, Sexy Suzy is sending me to Labor and Delivery again because my blood pressure is being a total asshole. After some labs and monitoring, if things don't calm down, we're inducing tonight.
If not, Tuesday for sure. Not because of the beetus, but because of the blood pressure.
