update on my fall... I got a call back
from my Dr. she made me go into Labor and Delivery. Of course they put
me on the monitor...everything looked great for my boy and then my Dr.
ordered an Ultrasound. So we waited and waited and finally went in for
the u/s. The girl did an entire scan of my tummy and even of my cervix
(which is closed and looks good...what she said..) then she leaves the
room, after telling me my son's head was measuring big...so I'm like
kind of freaking out...that turned out a false measurement because he
was so low she couldn't get a good shot of it...anyway the Dr. comes in
makes faces at the ultrasound and says 'stop wait...go back over it, yes
I see it...' And the whole time I'm like okay somebody tell me what the
hell is going on. Well the girl scanning thought she saw a tear in my
placenta and he was coming in to confirm it. When he looked though it
wasn't what she thought she saw and he said all looked fine to him. If something would be wrong with the placenta he would have been born today. So
needless to say I was on edge...They even had to wheel me through the
hospital in the bed to get my u/s. First time doing that! 5 hours later
I was released. If I feel any pain whatsoever I need to go in right
away. Hopefully we'll be fine. Did find out that my Boy is 5 lbs and
5ozs..... right on target!! Now I'm going take a bubble bath then going to bed. I have a Dr. appt. tomorrow and I'm asking her if I can quit working....lol

AJCUK - Friday, 21 Nov You have been through it! Try and take it easy, I know from experience that is harder than it sounds, but it has helped me and thankfully, the contractions are easing, so fingers crossed little man will stay in there a bit longer!
Kara G. - Thursday, 20 Nov Guess it is a good thing you went in and your mind at peace. Glad to hear you are doing well and baby is weighing in at healthy weight. Take care, Kara
inspired - Thursday, 20 Nov Thank goodness everything is ok. So scary though. I hate when the doctors and nurses talk about stuff and you are absolutely clueless, they shoudl know better than to do that to preggers.
melanie rae - Thursday, 20 Nov OMG, I just read where you had fallen. Looks like from your story about the L&D everything seems to be ok. Thank Goodness. I fell down my back step outside early on during my pregnancy. I didn't hit my stomach but as I fell my back raked each part of the steps on the way down. It hurt pretty bad but I wasn't that far along to really be that concerned. It's scary though. I'm glad all is fine with you and the baby! Us preggo women have to be careful. I climb up and down stairs all day at work which is not good. Lately I've resorted to using the elevator more. Just don't want to take the risk and it also helps with the pressure on my feet. By the end of the day everyday, my feet are killing me anyways.
