So I went to L&D, and felt silly, but something just seemed off. They hooked me up to a monitor for two hours and hooked the boys up to fetal monitors. The small amount of tightening I was feeling did NOT register as contractions. My OB was on call at the hospital, he thinks that is braxton hicks or the boys moving. As for the achenes and just not feeling right, turns out I have a pretty bad urinary tract infection. I guess I do know my body! I don't know what my body is telling me, but I know when it is "off."
The cervix was still long and closed. I asked the OB how far I would have to make it to delivery here in town. He told me 28 weeks and gave me a 99% chance of making it there and farther. That put a huge smile on my face, he told me I am doing just fine and my cervix was great today. I am NOT in pre-term labor, I have a UTI. I am now popping antibiotics and chugging cranberry juice. Oh and he put me on progesterone supplements which have been shown to keep the uterus calm and keep labor away.
SO GLAD I WENT!!!!
