We spent the better part of the day at the hospital today. Mama wasn’t feeling too good this morning, even throwing up. She called her doctor, and just to be on the safe side, we were told to go to the Labor and Delivery department.<br />n<br />nWe checked in, got put on a fetal monitor, and after a while and some tests, it was determined that there was nothing wrong with the baby inside, nor with the pregnancy itself. That was a relief.<br />n<br />nShe was put on an IV to get some fluids inside her since she was purging a lot of fluids, and plans were made to send her down to the ER, since it wasn’t really a Labor or Delivery issue anymore.<br />n<br />nOnce in the ER, she was poked and prodded and plans were made for some blood tests and an ultrasound to make sure it was a problem with the appendix.<br />n<br />nSeveral hours later (doesn’t it always take several hours in the ER?), everything was checking in as being in good shape, and the issues she was having was being chalked up to dehydration. The somewhat disconcerting thing that was found was that the cord was wrapped around the baby’s neck. Twice. But, since it’s still a good 10 weeks or so left before having to slide down the chute, it’s ok for now.<br />n<br />nWe were home by about 6:30 and she took it easy for the rest of the night.
