(Sorry, that’s an inside joke that only my Mom will really get. lol)
It’s nearly 11pm here. I just got home a few minutes ago. My mom is a life-saver and has both boys for the night, unless I receive a “ransome” call sometime tonight. It feels strange without the boys in the house but I could definitely use the sleep. So I’ll go with it.
Now what you’ve all really been waiting for…Your prayers worked!!!!!
I am okay. Tiny is okay. (I’m tearing up as I type this. It’s been a long day.) I have been having cramping pretty consistantly all day today. At times it felt as if I had contractions sneaking in here and there. Then shortly after 5pm (of course) I had a few other things going on that gave me reason to pause.
I called the answering service fully expecting to hear that everything was tied to me starting the progesterone injections yesterday. No such luck. The on-call nurse wanted me to go to the ER because of my history of preterm labor. While she was debating if I should go to the ER or to Labor & Delivery by way of the ER, I asked out right if I could go to L&D. (Last time I was in the ER they flat out told me that they didn’t have enough experience with OB cases, which doesn’t instill faith especially given our complications.) She agreed that would be best given my history.
We got there. The ER debated with L&D over who would take me. I won out in the end and up to L&D we went. My nurse B(renda) was amazing! My med student/resident was amazing! My doctor (not Dr. D) was amazing! They were all super nice and treated me really, really well. I could not have asked for a better group of people (except for Dr. D and his nurses, of course).
They all did a bunch of tests which came back negative. Except for 2 that we won’t have the results for another 2-3 days. And the one that showed I may have some type of infection. So I’m on some antibiotics for the next 7 days. The infection stinks but at least it wasn’t preterm labor. I just hope this solves my problems.
Thank you all for you love and support and concern. Thank you a million times over for your prayers! I firmly believe that all of the prayers offered up to God on our behalf are a big part of how and why things are going as “smoothly” with this pregnancy as they are. Thank you.
If you want to keep “helping” please pray that the antibiotics work. That the preterm labor stays at bay and the progesterone injections help. And please pray that Tiny decides to hang around and “bake” 4-5 months longer. Aside from that, sanity and peace of mind of Rob and I. Lord knows we need tons of that!
Thank you again. I truly believe that you are all so so SO important right now. And I don’t know if you realize how much your love, support and prayers means for/to us right now. It may seem like a small thing for you, but it helps to know that you care. So thank you.
I’m going to drink some more fluids and rest some more. Then it’s off to bed.
Love you all!
