Yes, that is me... a hypochondriac. I must be a big giant baby or something. So, I was set to have an OB appt today. I awoke this morning in a horrific amount of pain. Aching and throbbing, the pain was so bad that I was nauseous and throwing up. I had myself believing I was (A) going into pre-term labor or (B) the cerclage was being regected by my body and was infected.
So, I called the OB's office to see if I could get in sooner. Instead they recommeded I go to the Periontologists office out of town. The ride was horrific, I was doubled over in pain and spent the whole ride praying for the boys and thinking I might vomit into a plastic bag at any moment.
We got to the office and the doctor came right in. The boys looked great, the fluid was very good, the heart rates were good, and we even got a couple of cute pictures. Next she measured my cervix, which was still doing well. She even inspected my cervix for an infection. Nope... still just a urinary tract infection, a bad UTI, but all this pain and worry still from a UTI! Come on how can it hurt that bad? She also mentioned that the weight of the boys and the stretching of the uterus is causing some of the aches, but the throbbing pelvic and back pain is from the UTI.
She told us things looked good and we just needed to hold on for at least two more weeks. Which she didn't think would be a problem.
She encouraged me to drink a TON of water, which I have been doing and it feels a little better, but wow am I still in total pain. What a baby and a hypochondriac!
