Live...from OB triage...

So here I am at the hospital once again...this won't really be live live...just a timeline of how things go Yeah, I'm that bored

Got here just before noon, set up in triage.  As soon as I got hooked come the contractions!  Still at 5cm (so no change there!), but the contractions were coming at a rate of about 4 in a 10 minute window. Lots of blood.

12:20 p.m.:  Shot of terbutaline.  Makes the heart race, but flat lines contractions!

1:20 p.m.:  Feeling the terb wear off a little...waiting to see if contractions return...

2:00 p.m.:  cervix check.  Lots of bloody show, 6cm...bulging amniotic sac.

4:00 p.m.:  all set up in labor and delivery.  Getting antibiotics for GBS.

5:30 p.m.:  second terbutaline shot (stalling to make sure those antibiotics have a 4 hour window to be effective). 

Almost 7:00p.m.:  I'm in pain...menstrual cramps on crack!
