(first of all - everything is fine!!)

So the nurse called back...
Here is our conversation:
Nurse: "well I spoke with the doctor and she wants you to just head on over to Labor & Delivery"
Me: "seriously?! um... why... really..."
Nurse: "this is normal procedure since you are so far along"
Me: "okay... I don't even know where to go..."
Nurse: "it's okay, this is normal. Just go to blah blah blah..."

Yes, that's right. I went to the hospital to L & D. I called the Mr. to meet me there AFTER I reassured him that this was "normal". I was really nervous though.

They took me to a delivery room (which was super nice, by the way!) and hooked up our little man to the Doppler, and monitored me to make sure I wasn't having contractions. (which I wasn't). I was there for around 45 min I think. Then they checked my cervix just to make sure I wasn't dilated. And then I was okay to go.

She said it sounds like round ligament pain. Since I wasn't dilated, wasn't having contractions, and the pain wasn't constant or accompanied by any other symptoms... it seems my belly/uterus is just stretching.

Thank you God that everything is still looking right! Though that made me nervous to be walking into the hospital... 3 more months to go!


  1. Glad that everything is okay!!

  2. Glad that both you and baby are doing well!

  3. Wow, I would be a little nervous going to Labor and Delivery that soon too! I'm glad it all looked good. I just came across your blog, and I've been enjoying reading it! Congratulatiosn on your little miracle!
    I'm a Christian as well, and I love finding other like-minded people on here. :-)

  4. Whoops, that would be "congratulations", not "congratulatiosn". Ha!
