Tonight I gave in and called the Family Maternity Center. These inconsistent contractions, the cramps whenever I try to lay down to sleep. It’s driving me nuts and when I called, they said to come in.
So they took me to triage to monitor me. Baby Madeleine is fine. She’s moving around like crazy. I am still only 1cm dilated. She thinks it is prodromal labor since I didn’t have any significant contractions for the hour and a half I was there. So. Blah.
There was, however, some protein in my urine. Combined with my puffiness and I had mildly high blood pressure – again they are concerned about preeclampsia. 😦 So they took my blood again.
We’ll hear if there is anything concerning in the labs. Otherwise, my doctor told the nurse to give me some medicine to help me relax and get some sleep. I was told to drink more water (I don’t feel dehydrated, but evidently I am) and sent home.
So…here I am. Making some food and about to take my pills. Ugggg. Come on Madeleine!!
