Can someone help me understand since the Dr didn't?
Had bad back pain and period cramping from lunch time Saturday which kept me up all night. Called the hospital at 1:20am as I'm VBACing and they told me to try and rest.
Had a shower, took panadol and used a heat pack. Started getting painful tightenings 5 mins apart and put up with it for 2 hours before going to the hospital.
Cervix was thick but slightly open they said if there wasn't much progression they'd rupture my membranes and failing that a c-section.
They did a blood test to cross match, put a cannula in and then left me for 9 hours.
Contractions got down to 2 mins apart and lasting 40 seconds, they put me on the CTG and the contractions were showing up on there.
Jumped in the bath and after an hour everything fizzled out.
Dr came back and said I was fully effaced but only 1cm and midwife sent me home saying I wasn't even in labour and to come back when I was.
No explanation but wrote on a Dr's cert for my DF (he had to take work off) that I was treated for irritable uterus.
So today I'm feeling exhausted and sore, still getting irregular tightenings and period cramping. I'm really angry that they left me so long and didn't explain anything to me. My OB was away but gets back tomorrow and I have an appointment with him in the morning.
Has anyone else had something like this happen? I'm 37 weeks today and don't even want to go to the hospital next time something happens unless my waters break or I'm pushing, I feel so deflated and stupid.
