Yesterday I was having contractions. All. day. long.
I went to bed and they were 10 minutes apart.
I couldn't fall asleep forever.
And when I did I kept waking up from my contractions.
I got up and was in some pain....
More than just a Braxton Hicks pain.
Leo woke up.
I was trying to get ahold of my mom.
Leo threw the rest of my things together, I took a bath and was really nervous.
We get to the hospital.
They hook me up....
Madelyn's heart rate? Check.
The nurse loved my contractions and their pattern.
~5 minutes apart. Beautiful.
But then they check me for dialation, effacing...anything.
That's it. All of that work and 1 cm. She wanted me to be a 4 cm to stay.
But then they wanted me to get my blood pressure monitored.
It was high. The average was 150/90's.
I now go in on Thursday for NST monitoring.
And I'm back home. No sleep. Still contracting.
I feel silly for going in. But glad I did since my blood pressure is obviously having
a mind of it's own.
My appointment was cancelled for today. I now will get seen next Monday.
That is if Miss Madelyn doesn't plan on debuting anytime soon....
