A timeline of the days events...
9:00am-The Dr visit started off as usual, weight (boo), heartbeat 149, and any concerns. At this time Mommy explained to the Dr what had went on that past Friday and described what the other Dr said when I came in to the office Friday afternoon. This time though, Dr. Kramer seemed a little more concerned, especially when Mommy told her she was up the night before because it felt again like she'd had a little accident. (3 times)
Dr. Kramer decided to check Mommy to see what was going on. As she was checking Mommy, Daddy was holding my hand and reassuring me that everything was going to be fine. All of the sudden Daddy left Mommy's side and Dr. Kramer told Mommy she needed to check the fluid under the microscope that she was finding, because Mommy was starting to bleed. How scary! In the meantime nurses were coming in and out of the room with wash cloths and water...but why?? It was for Daddy! He had gotten really light headed and sick from seeing Mommy in pain and bleeding.
Dr. Kramer came back in and told us that what was leaking was in fact amniotic fluid, which means we needed to head upstairs to labor and delivery. We were going to have you that day or the next! 9:30 am--Daddy and I just looked at eachother like WHAT?! Dr. Kramer described what would happen after we made it upstairs, the plan was to give Mommy cervadil which would soften her cervix, that would stay in for 12 hours and then we would begin pitocin which would make me contract and start laboring. Dr. Kramer left the room a came back with a sono machine to check the amount of fluid still left, luckily there was a lot left in there for you, which made Mommy feel better. After she checked we headed upstairs, nervous, anxious, excited and scared for what was to come, afterall you were supposed to grow in my belly for 4 more weeks.
10 am--Daddy and I made it upstairs, got checked in and waited for Nani.
10:30am--The nurses came in and explained the plan again and then gave Mommy the cervidil. The plan was for it to be in for 12 hours, so Daddy left to go get out hospital bag and Nani and I started the waiting game. Little did we know, we wouldn't be waiting as long as we thought.
After my water broke the contractions came, very mild at first.
