This morning, very early (1 am ) I had some very sharp pain on the front wall of my belly. I happen to know that is where my placenta is. The baby wasn't really moving much last night, but I didn't really worry too much. The pain went away, then at 5 am I woke up and tried to get the baby to respond to anything, and he wouldn't. He literally felt limp in there. It scared me to death and, of course is even scarier at 5am. I drank some OJ and got 4 little movements in 1/2 an hour. That was not enough for me. I didn't feel like I should call the Dr yet, since technically he did move, so at 9 I called the Dr and she asked that I come in to the hospital to check everything again. I was more than willing to do that. So Jason and I got up, grabbed the bags and went to the hospital. I am so happy that it ended up being a dry run because we had the camera bag, but no camera! And I forgot my pillows and my medications. Next time we will be more prepared. Everything was fine of course, just my paranoia. I know to much about what can go wrong. I wish I could just forget all the awful things I know and go into this blindly. Ignorance is bliss. So now we are back on for Tuesday at 4:30pm. By wednesday night we should have a baby. I can't wait till he is out and I can SEE that he is breathing and FEEL his pulse. I think my insurance company will be much happier too!
