Hospital Visit

Well, our relaxing babymoon hasn't started the way we anticipated. Last night was spent in labor and delivery at St. Petersburg General Hospital...

There are a lot of details that I'll go into later. I keep losing internet connection and don't have time right now. Mainly, I was dehydrated, having contractions and dealing with upper abdominal pain.

They hydrated me, the contractions ceased and then they tried to figure out what the pain was from. They didn't find anything major and let me go home earlier today. I am a little worried about flying home Sunday. Please say a prayer that we get home safely and Peanut keeps cooking for 15 more weeks.

Thank you!

I had the same thing start to happen to me around the same time as you (in pregnancy weeks I mean) and I was just dehydrated ALL the time. So honestly, carry a jug of water with you at all times and keep hydrated. I never knew that not drinking enough really could turn into labor!

Oh no, I hope everything stays good from now on out. I'll pray for you guys.
Its amazing how easily our body can be thrown into these early labor signs from something we didn't realize was even going on. I'm glad you went to the hospital. I hope the rest of your trip is ok.

Thank God you aren't at Orlanda (Ghetto) Regional. I ended up there on my honeymoon and it was horrible. I hope St Petersburg takes good care of you.

I'm saying a lot of prayers for you and the peanut and will continue to do so. I'm sure that being in a hospital away from home and worrying about your little one was scary. By the way, my aunt and uncle live in St. Petersburg a mile (less than 5 minutes) away from the hospital you were in.

Ashley said...

Oh honey! I'm so sorry that you had to go through that! I'm glad that they stopped the contractions though and will be praying for you. ((HUGS))

LucieP said...

oh jeez-this d!mn FL heat!!! I had contractions at 25 weeks and they attributed it to the heat and need for hydration!
Hope that you made it home safely and are resting!!

Stephanie said...
