A few days ago i went into labor. I'm due on November 27th (i'm 29 weeks), so this was really scary. They were able to stop it with a shot and some IV fluid in L&D but it came back 10 minutes later so they just repeated the whole process. The labor didn't come back and I was allowed to go home on bedrest.
AND ITS BEEN DRIVING ME INSANE.
Last night (or early this morning, rather) I started contracting again, getting more and more regular, but my mom and i were able to stop it at home so there was no need to go to L&D this time.
I've been feeling so out of control and scared. The doctor says there isnt anything i can do to help myself besides stay in bed and drink lots of water. But knowing that my little baby is so small and unready, and that i could go into preterm labor anytime is horrifying. My boyfriend's been grounded from me by his dad since he came home early and i was at his house unsupervised (keep in mind we're 19 and 20). He wasn't even allowed go to to the hospital with me. I felt so alone. I feel so alone. And bored. That doesnt make anything better. And niether do the wisdom teeth that are just coming in... lucky pregnant ladies dont get pain meds...
I know this is a a total pity party, but i've just been crying all day and it's made me feel a bit better to get some of the feelings out.
Has anyone ever been on bedrest before and how did you cope? any tips, girls?
Thanks a lot for the vent.
