Maze I'm so sorry you had such a crappy day! Is there a reason they won't let you go to the ob/l&d part of the hospital? Hope the contractions stop rest up. Are you alone with during the day? I hope you'll have some help we are all thinking about you!

I think it is most likely because in Ontario they tell you that you cant go to L&D until you are after 21 weeks i think it is (i cant remember the exact week but i am sure it is sometime after 20 weeks)? Before that they say you have to go to the ER.

Soo dumb because they always end up calling an OB down to see you anyways, you just have to wait forever and you end up seeing a Dr. before that that scare the crap out of you like what happened to Maze

Interesting.... Up here I think you can go to ob if you're 14 weeks (in 2nd trimester).

We only have 2 doctors in our town, so if we go to the ER we automatically get sent upstairs to OB. It's nice, you don't have to deal with the ER at all, but it sucks because they never call the on-call doctor in right away unless it's an absolute emergency. So you deal with nurses, which can go really well or really wrong.

Maze, so sorry to hear you've had such a bad day! Sending loads of positive thoughts your way that you and baby stay healthy, and get plenty of rest. I hope there's somebody who can watch the kids for you while you're having to stay on bed rest?

They spent a good half hour trying to find the baby's heart beat on the doppler but gave up, then when they brought in the portable ultrasound machine they turned it away so I couldn't see. The doctor in ER admitted she is not a pro-ultrasound tech, but it was clear she was concerned by what she saw.

I was devastated. I still am in some way as for that bit of time I felt like my heart was being ripped out of my chest.

An OB from the hospital came in and was able to confirm a heart beat though, when the ER doctor couldn't find one.

I am on strict bed rest for the next two weeks. They gave me some kind of shot to help with the contractions or something but I don't even know right now, I was basically hysterical the whole time. They might put me on permanent bed rest if I continue to get contractions.

It's been an emotional afternoon... and they never did let me see my baby, even after convincing me they had passed.
Oh my god maze that's so terrible!! I hope that you weren't alone while that was all going on!! I'm glad they found the heartbeat, but its scary not being able to see the baby on scan after all that. Its stupid, but hospital policy. When I was admitted over night a few months back w bleeding and same thing, er Dr couldn't find a heartbeat, they never let me see baby either. I had to wait a week for another scan, but I'm sure if Dr let you go home, that baby is OK.
Bed rest for a week will be challenging, but its for the greater good, so try and relax! I was onbedrest for 5 months with the last preg, and I know how hard it can be! Sending hugs!!! Keep us posted!!

Thanks everyone for your support.

Junebugs is right, you have to be over 20 weeks to go to labour and delivery in Ontario. I think it is pretty dumb because meanwhile you're in a bed next to someone horribly ill and possibly being exposed to their germs. Not to mention how ridiculous the ER doctors are when it comes to pregnancy, if anything is amiss they automatically assume the worst. I guess because they see the worst so frequently.

My husband is taking today and tomorrow off and then my mom is coming up from Boston on Wednesday. So I do have help. I am down though, I was getting a nice routine of morning walks with my daughter and enjoying the remaining time we have together just the two of us during the days.

I do have my morphology scan tomorrow, so that is somewhat of a relief.

I'm glad you have help!
That sucks that you have to be so far along to go to l&d. I think things just changed around here to 10-12 weeks, but when I stayed overnight last time to get my picc line put in I was in the prenatal section..which I where they send people who they are trying to keep from delivering. A lot of the people in that section are there long term. I was sent there from l&d, and I was only 9 weeks. Seems like a waste of everyone's time to have to go to the er. It just makes things scarier and it does expose you to a lot more germs!

I hope the morphology scan goes well tomorrow! That's something to look forward to. Hopefully you and your daughter can get back to your routine soon keep us posted hun.

Maze what a horrible day you had and a scary one at that.

DO they think you have an irritable uterus..From about 19w onwards last pregnancy I had daily contractions quite painful although they never progress or get closer together. I thought I was in labour several times and i am sure i will get it again this time.

Hope everything settles for you.
