Was supposed to have an appointment on Mon, but I found out my OH's Gramma's funeral is on Mon, so I have to reschedule. This past weds I had protein in my urine and my doctor sent me for urine cultures and bloods to check for UTI or Kidney infection. Weds night I started getting killer cramps, sharp pains and bad lower back pain, which I put down to being a UTI.... So I figured id hold off until Mon... Until I found out about OH's Gramma. I decided if it was a UTI I couldnt stand the pain I was in for another week. So I broke down and went to the hospital today because the pains ive been having were soooo bad and I really wanted drugs for it! Had an asessment and I was 1cm dilated, the doctor who examined me said she couldn't tell me how quick things would go cause my doctor hasn't done an internal yet, well she did at 32ws, but that doesnt matter in regards to this. She said it looks like I am in early labor with the symptoms i've been having and my cervix starting to dilate Had some contractions showing on the NST too. Im to come back if I start getting more frequent or more painful cramping for another assessment... Im kind of annoyed now that I didnt have an internal done at 37ws. Im going to try and re-schedule my appointment with my doc for later in the week, then at least there will be a few days for something to happen. Also my urine dip stick was clear, but under the microscope there was a small amount of bacteria. She said she didn't think I had a UTI or anthing, but gave me a precripstion for a mild anti-biotic that is used to prevent or treat UTIs. Ahhh well.... Heres hoping bubs comes soon!!!! Well, after Mon anyways.
