Well we had Round two in labor and deliver yesterday. I called my dr and went in around noon yesterday afternoon after having cramping all night. Got there they admitted us, hooked me up and I was having contractions pretty good ones and close together. So they moved us to a big labor room thinking we may be in for good. They hooked us up again her heart rate sounded wonderfully and she was moving like crazy, probably mostly becuase she had not eaten either all day,with the exception of the ice chips they let me have! (They wouldnt let me eat all day in case) My dr came in checked me a few hours later and I was not dialated and my water had not broke so they monitored my contractions and hooked me up to an IV thinking maybe dehydration was causeing my contractions we did that till about 730pm that was not helping. They then tried to stop my contractions again by giving me a shot of tribudaline as they appreared to not be doing much, the medication did not stop them just made me feel loopy but my pain did go away. After another couple of hours my contractions started getting further apart so they decided it would be ok to send us home for the night, since i was still not dialated. Thank goodness cause I was starving and still had not packed for the hospital yet..i know i know. I will be doing that today so still no baby but Dr apt on thursday to find out our induction day! Being there was a very anxious, nervous, sureal and scary feeling. I know that may seem silly but really i have no idea what we are in for when we get there, the posibility of C seciton is just a small piece of the equation. The head of the NICU team did however come into our room and reasure us that they are awear of little Ella and are 100 percent ready for her whenever she comes. That was nice to hear.
Not sure if i will ever be able to put into words exactly how im feeling at this very moment. For my theater friends and family, it almost feels like getting ready for opening night only with no idea what character you are about to play, or what any of your lines are, or maybe ever what show you are about to be apart of! haha My nerves and emotions are at an all time high, all i want to be is excited but i know i have to be realistic. Life as we know it is about to completly change and that terrifies me. I need now more than ever to find some true strength in myself and good motivation to push me through this next week so I can be as prepared as possible for our baby girls arrival. I know we have a wonderful support group cheering us on and praying for us, I just wish they wernt all so far away :) ok im gonna go now, cause i still need to pack... ;) thanks for listening everyone. From our hearts to yours xoxo
