Double negative
« on: January 29, 2013 at 11:49 PM »
What a week. Monday we realized two of our daughters have fifths disease, which is no big deal to the, but can be a problem for baby and me. I got blood work drawn Monday and am waiting for the results.

Then, I have been in such pain for two days, with no relief. Today, it seemed to be bothering baby, too, as his/her activity level dropped way wy down. Off we went to L&D tonight for an NST. Babe woke up after about 30minutes on the monitor, thankfully. It also showed contractions every 3-5 minutes. I also lost my mucus plug today, I think, and am now just a fingertip dilated. At least the increased intensity in the contractions might be doing some good. Unfortunately, we don't really have anything else to do about them. They sent me home with an "I'm sorry you are hurting, but...four more weeks."

And so I'm miserable and hurting, but at least baby is happier tonight. And I'm going back to the couch until this pain lessens.
