On the way back from the pool yesterday, Mommy had a spill. I fell off of a step onto the concrete sidewalk (onto my knees NOT my belly, Thank God). Mili didn't know what to think and was worried that Mommy's boo boo needed some kisses right now (as I was bleeding and just trying to get Mili back to the apartment). I had to calm myself as we walked back to the apartment. I was worried about Sadie and didn't know what the next step should be (pun intended....smile).
I brought Mili in and and changed her clothes (still bleeding). Of all times she need to go to the potty so I was trying to take care of that and I was still wet and still bleeding. Then I decided to call Brian. He was not at his desk (surprise, surprise). I left a message on his office phone and then called his cell phone. He did not pick up (surprise, surprise). Then I sent a text message "CALL ME". He was in a meeting and stepped out to call me back. By the time he called me I had already decided to call the doctor's office and see what they wanted me to do. At this time they were closing and I got to talk to a nurse who told me to drink a glass of juice and lay down and count the baby's movements. I was doing that when Brian called me back. Sadie was moving so he decided to go back into the meeting and come home directly after that. He brought me dinner (sweet hubby).
After eating and sitting in the recliner for a while I started noticing several contractions. Brian got out a stop watch and decided to time them. I called the doctor who was on call (He was delivering a baby, several babies, they were very busy). I called back again and another doctor called me and told me to go to the hospital since my contractions were 8 to 10 in one hour.
We got dressed and left for the hospital. It was about 4:00 pm when I fell and we left for the hospital about 8:45 pm. We arrived at the hospital shortly after 9:00 pm and finally got admitted (woman at the desk was soooooo slow, but I will cut her some slack since she was working on her 14th hour of work in one day). They monitored me and pumped me full of IV fluids. The contractions when we arrived at the hospital were about 3 to 5 minutes apart so we were a bit worried. The contractions did not subside with fluids so then they gave me a shot (ok, three shots) of medicine to stop the contractions.
We arrived home at 3:30 am. We are pooped. My knees are killing me. Every time I got up to go to the bathroom last night (alot since they put three bags of fluids in me) I hurt like crazy. If you would like to see the knees, I posted a picture below.
We are fine and the important thing is that Sadie is fine and well. She is healthy and we are hoping to keep her in until at least 37 weeks. I am 34 weeks right now. Please pray that she will not try this stunt again and neither will Mommy. I am taking it easy today and just relaxing. Hoping that their will be no more contractions.
Love to ALL!
