So the other day I felt crampy all day. But I had a NST scheduled for that afternoon, so I figured I'd just wait and have it checked out then.
Sure enough, contractions. I was sent to Labor & Delivery triage to determine if I were in pre-term labor.
After a shot of something to stop the contractions, they were milder, but didn't go away. So I was given a liter of fluid in the hopes that being hydrated would stop them. Nope. In fact, by the end the intensity was returning.
But I wasn't dilated at all, so I was sent home. Without restrictions.
All good news, but I have to say I think once they determine you're having honest-to-God for real contractions, you should at least get a couple of days off of work. At least.
Can I get a witness?
In other news, assuming Peanut doesn't decide to make an early entrance, we have a C-section scheduled for May 20.
