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 up...here 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!
