Well, I had peace for almost two weeks but then last night right when I woke up from a nap, I turned to my other side because my stomach felt funny & right when I did it felt like my water had broken. Confused I sat up & right there my boyfriend called me to tell me some good news but I was worried. I told him to keep me company over the phone while I went to the bathroom because something didn't feel right. When I pulled down my underwear I was facing A LOT of blood in my pad. I guess because I was still half asleep I couldn't comprehend & I told my boyfriend what was going on & I went into a slight panic but he was keeping me calm on the phone. I called the nurse & when she came I cleaned myself & was put on the monitor. Before I left the bathroom I was having some weird strong stomach pains & when I laid down they were worse. They felt like nothing I have ever felt before & it was a horrible pain that had me crying. They felt like contractions to me but the monitor wasn't picking it up for some reason so the nurse thought it was probably just gas from when I ate at 4:30 (this was happening at 7) but I was very worried because they truly felt like contractions. After 30mins, the pain finally eased & the bleeding was slowing down a little but I was still bleeding. Right now when I wipe it's just pink on the toilet paper & I'm hoping the bleeding stops completely so I can start my countdown again of no bleeding.
I guess I had gone into a panic because I was alone when it happened & my boyfriend is back to manager hours at his job & he works 45-50mins away & he will be doing 12hr shifts again. & the thought of being rushed to an emergency section is scary to me. I was already worrying about tomorrow because the nurses are letting me use the Conference Room for a small baby shower & I was worrying about something like this happening before or during the shower because I wanted to have a good time & spend time with my kids since I haven't seen them since the last time I bled. I just hope everything goes okay between now & tomorrow...I've never had a baby shower before & even tho it's last minute & very small, I just want to have that experience since I won't be able to again. Yesterday my boyfriend had called me to let me know we got approved to rent the house we wanted & we got it yesterday but with everything going on I couldn't really feel the excitement towards it. I still feel numb & like I can't be excited over it because of all this. But if she comes now instead of waiting until she turns 36 weeks, that's fine by me.
On Weds I had my ultrasound where they measured her & stuff & the tech told me she is very big for her "age" that her development is 5 days ahead of itself & she's very shocked, she's extremely healthy & all. When she told me that I responded without thinking "....I wonder if it's from the steroids they gave me last month..." & she started cracking up real hard. Just a thought! Hahaha
