Bed Rest

So, I have been on "bed rest" for quite a few weeks of this pregnancy. During that time I pretty much considered bed rest sitting down to watch TV a little more often than normal. I noticed contractions here and there, but they didn't really bother me. So then at my last dr. appointment, they sent me immediately to labor and delivery at the hospital. 3 previous pre-term babies, and I was dialated to a 3 and 50% effaced. CRAP, this again.

The dr. gave me a choice between Mag. or some blood pressure meds, both would stop labor. I knew Mag makes me vomit uncontrollably, so I picked the blood pressure meds.

Little did I know they should have said would you rather vomit uncontrollably or have a migraine so bad you would rather die. They both sound so nice, what would you choose???

After thinking I was seriously having some kind of brain annyerism, they finally took pity on me and gave me some more meds to fix my headache. They told me they were giving me stadol and phenegren. At that point they could have told me they were going to hit me with a hammer and I would not have cared.

Once they injected the meds I felt this weird thick sensation move through my body finally stopping in my head. The really crazy thing is the dreams! Very, very disturbing dreams. Have you ever had a dream so bad you can't even talk about it days later? I have one image in my head still, that is just haunting me.

After a really long night of this, and being woken up every 20 min for blood pressures, vital signs, and moving moniters. They let me go back home.

Let me just say I am SO incredibly thankful for some of the friends that I have that would take care of all three kids at the drop of a hat. I don't know what I would do if I was worried about my kids while all this was going on.

My mother-in-law flew in to save the day. I have been ordered on strict bedrest, and I will do anything to avoid going back to the hospital. So, here I lay.

Georgia gets stung by a wasp, and I lay here
Katherine gets a diaper change, but not by me, because I am in bed
Tommy wants to play on his scooter, so I watch from the window
They need help finding shoes and sunscreen, and I tell them from bed where to look
My MIL is incredible for taking over all my duties,
it is hard to let her, because I FEEL FINE!
I have tons of energy... sigh
I have a feeling I am going to be blogging a lot in the next few days>
