28 Weeks & Contractions

Well I have been in a Better mood lately. Thank you to everyone for your Understanding and Well Wishes. I had my Husband take a picture of me 3 Days ago. Wow I look Huge even in black...LOL... I went out to Dinner with My Cousin in law. We went to the Olive Garden. Yum yum Yum!







On Tuesday Morning I woke up and the shorts that I wore to bed were pretty Damp.(warning this will contain alot of information) I thought maybe my water was leaking. I put on a Pantyliner and went about my day. I took my Older son to Summer Camp and Lil Worm and I went to Target and Babies R Us to run errands. About a Hour and a half after I first put on that Pantyliner I went to the Bathroom. The Liner was completely wet. I started to get concerned, but continued with my errands (after all I am a Busy Mom) and then picked up Monkey Boy from Summer Camp. I headed home and made everyone Lunch. On the way Home in the car I started to feel contractions. I put Lil Worm in his Crib for a nap and decided to text my Husband at Work. I told him I felt like I was leaking Something and I was starting to have Contractions. I told him I felt like I should probably call the DR. However I did not want to make a mountain out of a molehill so I wanted his opinion. He told me to call. I called and they told me to go the the emergency room. I was very nervous and the Contractions were getting much worse. The Nurse was great and she tested me with the paper to see if my water was leaking. I cannot remember the name of the paper ,but if you are leaking amniotic Fluid the paper will turn blue. The paper remained the normal color,however when she ran the paper on my Pantyliner it did turn Blue. I am 28 weeks with my 3rd Baby and my 2ND Baby was born at 36 weeks. I went into early Labor with him and they could not stop it. His Lungs were not developed and it was very scary at Even 36 weeks. I do not want to go into Labor at 28 weeks. They sent me down to have a Ultrasound to see how much Fluid the Baby Had. The Baby had plenty of Fluid,but everyone was wondering what was I leaking and why was I still having strong contractions about every 3to 4 min. My Dr came to the Hospital and did a internal exam to see if I had a small tear or something. I did not. Thank Goodness!! It turns out that I have a Bacteria Infection witch can cause the uterine wall to contract. I just got over a Bladder Infection and that left everything venerable to get other infections. In the Hospital they gave me Procardia to stop the Contractions witch made my Heart race and feel like it was coming out of my chest. I stayed overnight to be Monitored and went home with a prescription antibiotic . I was told to stop teaching Dance. I asked him If I could pick up my 1 year old and walk up and down stairs. He told me yes I can,but I need to go home and be extremely Lazy Just the Bare Minimum to get buy. So have any of you experienced something like this ? Did you Deliver Early? Did the infection come back after the antibiotics? Would love to read some similar situations.

I'm so sorry that happened but I'm glad they were able to stop it. I don't have any experence in early labor but I have a lot of experence in being lazy so if you need some pointers on that let me know!!! LOL

Do you have any one who can come over and help you out with the little ones just to give you a break?

Take care and keep us updated.

Praise God that everything is okay! Saying a prayer that the rest of your (full term) pregnancy goes well. You look great. :)
