Dr. Case came in to see me this morning. She didn’t really have anything new to say, but I asked her about what would happen when I got to 36 weeks. She said if I’m still 5 cm they will likely send me home, but if I am any bigger than that, they’ll go ahead and consider me “in labor” for real, and I guess deliver the baby.
The lady who brought me breakfast must have been new. Anyway I had never seen her before. She did not pick up my breakfast tray, therefore she didn’t pick up my menu either. The nurse finally collected it, and faxed my menu to them. Unfortunately they messed up both my lunch and my dinner. The worst of it was I had asked for chocolate milk for lunch, and I didn’t get it. How am I supposed to survive?
So for a while there I was having tons of contractions, so many that I was getting Terbutaline shots practically every day, sometimes two times a day. Since Friday, though, my contractions have slowed down quite a lot. This morning was pretty boring, no contractions or anything, but after I got off the monitor, I started feeling pressure. Not bad, but definitely different. Then during my my afternoon monitoring I was having contractions, along with the pressure. I got another Terb shot, and finally things started to slow down. What does all this mean? I have no idea.
