What should have been a relaxing day at home because I over did it at work yesterday, turned into a trip to triage. 🙄
This all started because yesterday we had a required function after school. I didn’t go crazy but walking around compounded with a full day of work led me to be pretty uncomfortable. I came home, laid down felt better. In the middle of the night I was so uncomfortable! I was up for a good hour trying to get comfortable my belly was very achey no matter how I lay. So I stayed home, thinking a half day would be perfect. I felt better this morning but still kind of crampy. So I called the doctor hoping to move up tomorrow’s appointment to today. Instead, they sent me to triage 🙄 I hate this place. Thankfully it wasn’t busy and I was in within 20 min. (I have waited 4+ hours at this place before).
Monitors showed babies heart rates were great. My cervix was closed and Long. But I am having contractions (those are the uncomfortable acheyness I’m feeling.) they aren’t concerned and say to drink lots of fluid and take it easy. Feeling ok when I left the ER and went home but of course when hurricane Ava came home it got harder. Hubby was great, he made dinner we watched a movie but either the stress of her being home or it was just a coincidence, they came back.
I’ve been laying down now for awhile. Going to take a bath once Ava’s on bed. I’ve been chugging liquids but not much eases them. I’ve been told by others that these contractions are normal for twins and could last up until delivery. Hope not though, I was trying to make it another week or two at work. Used a sick day today and tomorrow, maybe I can do some half days but we’ll see. I go to my doctor tomorrow, hopefully she has some more insight.
