Remember how I said I was gonna do better??!
Like, 15 times?! I'm so sorry ya'll. Every time I start to share something I think that it is nothing anyone else cares to hear! BUT today I thought you might like to see what me and this baby look like together, and I thought I could explain how we spent several hours in Labor and Delivery the other night!
First of all, thankfully, nothing is wrong! I was having some pains that I thought were contractions, and they were coming every few minutes for about an hour, so I called the doctor's office. The phone nurse, when she realized that this was baby #3 for me, told me to go on over to the hospital to get checked out. I was NOT expecting that, but I went ahead and called my parents to drive me over there since Chris was at his school 30 min. away (this was at the end of the school day). We got over there and they asked 5 million questions and got me set up in the lovely hospital gown, and hooked me up to the doppler to listen to Robbie's heartbeat. He did NOT like having the monitor on, as usual, and ran away from it and kicked at it every chance he got.
They did a preterm labor test, and checked me, and I was as I should be at this point. Finally, several hours later, the doctor on call came by and basically said he thought it was intestinal upset. Nothing to make you feel like a huge fool than that! So I cried in frustration and we got ready to head home. Chris took me to Chik-fil-A for dinner and we went to pick the boys up from my parents, then went home, where I crashed.
I'm still having some of the same type pains and I'm not convinced that it is just gas. I'm thinking it is round ligament pains, personally. I have a doctor's appointment this week so we'll see what he says. All I know is I am so stinkin' TIRED! I make it through work each day, but I get very little done here around the house. That another reason I don't post here or on my usual message boards, cause I'm too tired to think of something to say!
Well, friends, there is an update. Hopefully life will become more interesting in my mind soon so I can find something to tell you about! :)
