my not so fun labor day.
I started cramping Thursday evening. It was mild so I ignored it. I'm thirty-three weeks pregnant so I expect to be uncomfortable. Well around midnight of both Thursday and Friday night, I had three very intense cramps within an hour and then back to just mild constant cramping. Saturday and Sunday passed without any more of the intense cramps so I had decided to just call my doctor Tuesday morning and ask to come in. Well today the constant mild cramping was becoming more intense so I called the answering service that my doctor's office has. The doctor on call recommended that I go into labor and delivery because it had been going on for so long. Well after three hours of being monitored, a bag of fluids, and a shot of terbutaline I was allowed to go home. They diagnosed me with an irritable uterus. Since none of the cramps or pains lasted longer than thirty seconds I was not considered to be in labor. They have no idea what caused my uterus to get irritated but they got the pain to stop. So far, I am not dilated and they did not seem concerned about possible preterm labor. All in all, not the day I was expecting but I'm just thankful that my body is holding her in.
