Hospital Trip

So last night we had a little bit of a scare. I started having contractions along with really bad pains right before my doctors appointment. So I talked to my doctor and he said it wasn't anything to worry about unless it got worse. Well I drove home and the whole way home the pain kept getting worse. I didn't know if it was contractions or just Kael pushing on a nerve or something. So I picked up Chase at home and went straight over to my mom's. We tried a few things to see if we could get it to go away but it just seemed that the pain just wasn't getting any better. So Chase called the doctor to find out what else could be done, the doc said go in and get checked. So off to the hospital we went. When we got there, they had me change and hooked me up to the monitors. I was having contractions about every four minutes, but every time Mr. Kael moved it would cause me pain. So after a while they decided to give me terbutaline to stop the contractions and ibprofen to help with the pain and I did a urine test. The test showed I had a urinary tract infection and so they figured that the UTI and the baby's position was the causeo of my pain because I wasn't really feeling my contractions. And the UTI and dehydration probably started my contractions. So once the terbutaline stopped my contractions they gave me a perscription for my UTI told me to drink a ton of water for dehydration and sent me home. I have been feeling pretty good so far. Just a little nervous that something else might happen. Although I'm really excited about having Kael arrive we just aren't quite ready for him. Anyways, while we were waiting for the test results Chase and I entertained ourselves by taking pictures of each other. Lame I know, but we didn't have anything else to do. 
Chase was really bored and I was just thankful for drugs that could stop contractions. Poor baby would have been so sick if he was born this early.

I had your Mommy tell me today when i came to pick up braiden. i'm glad everything is doing better! That's a scary thing! Hey just think you might have him early instead of late like me!!! that's always nice especially if you are ready to have the baby and the baby isn't. it's very frustrating! I'm glad you and kael are okay! Loves
