Taytum Update

On Friday September 23, I had a Drs appt to check and see how the baby and I are doing. My Dr was going to be out of town so I saw his PA. I have been having some pain up under my left rib area. It doesn't feel like its the baby kicking its like a burning/muscles being ripped apart. Not very fun. I mentioned this to the PA and she said "oh it probably just your baby". She did the normal measure my belly and said lets get some blood work and put you on a monitor just to make sure there isnt anything out of the normal going on. They hooked my up and waited 20 minutes and the PA came back and looked at the print out of results and said" oh my you are having contractions every 1-2 minutes get to the hospital now!" Brandon and I looked at her and were like what? I wasn't feeling anything other then the pain under my ribs. She said she was calling the hospital to let them know we were on our way but we needed to get there now. We looked at each other and were in a daze and headed to the hospital. I called my mom to see if they were going to meet us at an ultrasound appt we had and told her we werent going to make it there because of what was going on. The whole time Brandon and I were like should we be nervous, worried, or scared. We didn't know if we were going to go have baby or what. We got to the hospital and told them our dr sent us because I was having contractions every 1-2 minutes and the looked at me like are you really? They hooked me up to their monitors and sure enough I was still having contractions but I had no clue. After 3 rounds of shots they were able to get them to stop. It was such a weird experience. I wasn't nervous or freaking out. They put me on bedrest for the weekend and said if I had any more contractions to go back in. We laughed because I said I didn't know I was having them to begin with. I had to go back on monday because my pain under my ribs was back and pretty strong and had to have 2 more rounds of shots to stop contractions again. I saw the Dr Tuesday and he put me on a pill to try to get them to stop and keep Taytum cooking for 2 more weeks. He's hoping I make it 2 more weeks but said she might come anytime and will most likely not make it to Nov.6. Brandon and I were joking that after all this the little stinker is now going to hold on and I will go over my due date. I see the Dr Thursday to see whats going on. Its crazy to think she is actually going to come and we are going to have a baby.

I had a similar thing happen a few weeks ago but mine was due to dehydration. Yeah didn't know that if you got dehydrated that you can start having contractions! But I hope everything goes well these next few weeks! We are all excited to meet this cute little girl! Love ya!
