This past week from being sick I had back pain and didn't thinking on it. I thought it was from coughing. Thursday visit to doctor, i was given an antibiotic shot and Z-pack. Well, yesterday evening around 5:30 I started to have period cramping. I laid down - made it worse. Chugged down three bottles of water. The pain got worse. I gave up and went to the ER at around 230 am. They did a swab to see if my cervix was dilating and would show if I were to deliver before 35 weeks. It came out negative. I was dehydrated so I had 2 liters pumped into me. The contractions I was having stopped while getting my second bag of fluids. Then out of no where I had a huge pain from needing to go to the bathroom. Somehow my contractions had gotten worse after the fluids instead of better. I was given med to stop the contractions and finally got sent home after 9:30 this morning. I'm now on complete bed rest. With two other toddlers, we are going to be getting creative with entertainment.
