37w 4d ... and a stomach bug to join us
Saturday morning about 3:00 I woke up just not feeling right. Not knowing if this was early labor or what, I started texting my mom. Then I got sick. Close for 12 hours I was violetly ill. I couldn't keep anything down, not even Gatorade. I finally paged my doctor and he wanted Kris to get some freeze pops and call back in 2 hours. So that's exactly what we did. Only to find out after talking to him the second time, he wanted us to go to L&D. When I got there my blood pressure was up (slightly) but that wasn't the main concern. They had me on the monitor and JB's heartrate was in the 170's and had them concerned. My pulse was also high. In the meantime, 2 women came in and the doctor's had to tend to them. In the meantime, they did let me eat crushed ice for 2 hours. When a doctor made it back to me, my pulse was down just a little but the baby's was still slightly elevated. They decided to check me since I had been so violently sick and having irregular contractions. Although I didn't even feel all of them; some lasting 40-60 seconds. I was 1cm and 20%. Surprise! I wasn't expecting that at all. After 4 1/2 hours of monitoring, eating ice chips and 3 packs of crackers, they sent us home!
