Monday stunk...Tuesday was better...hoping Wednesday rocks...

In general, I think Mondays tend to stink, but yesterday was worse than usual. I got up earlier than I like to and then received a call from my mom that my pregnant sister was at the hospital. She's 24 weeks. She was having what my mom described as "uncomfortable pressure". I guess it was uncomfortable enough to make her go to the hospital! Anyway, I freaked out. Things turned out okay. I had some work to do only about 20 minutes from that hospital (she lives about and hour and a half from me) and even though my mom and step dad were on their way there, I decided to go and see her at the hospital. I wasn't sure at first if it would be a good idea, she was in labor and delivery.....I just wasn't sure if I could handle it. After finally talking to her and hearing how scared she sounded, I knew that I had to go there. I arrived just in time to take her home. She wasn't dilated and they had given her some medication to help with the contractions.

As always the Medical profession in my opinion seems so nonchalant about it!
Why is this happening?
      Mmm, don't know, just happens???!!!
     Could be something you ate, stress, etc.
   They'll probably come back.
Well, that's reassuring!
     If you have them for an hour in a half at 10 minutes apart, definitely come back in.
Again, reassuring!

After I brought her home, my mom and step dad showed up. I stayed for a little while, and then headed home. Which took over 2 hours because we were having a hurricane like storm. I talked to them a few times last night and all seemed well, but this morning, my mom told me they'd gone back to the hospital last night. She was home again and this time the Dr. seems to be relatively certain that the cause is some GI issue. Hmm...Apparently my sister says someone else was in there with the same thing!?!? Now her stomach is killing her, but she seems better, probably having something as a possible cause makes it a little less upsetting. I'm still very nervous, but I know she'll be alright.

On another front, I still haven't gotten my PERIOD!!!! I called today and asked what happens if I don't get it by Thursday, which was when she told me to call if I hadn't gotten it. The nurse told me, they will test my hormones on Friday and usually even though there hasn't been a "bleed" the hormones are where they need them to be. I guess that the hormones are the important thing, not the actual period. I'm still hoping to get it. Tomorrow maybe? Tomorrow will be day 33, I don't think it's ever been that late before.

So, I'm hoping that tomorrow I get AF and my little sister is feeling a whole lot better.


  1. hoping your sister is ok and that today is a better day. :)

  2. Thinking of your sister. What a horrible reminder for you, and a stressful time for her. You're amazingly supportive.

    I hope AF comes, too! Although, from my experience and what I've read, Lupron can either decrease it or prevent it altogether - like the nurse said, it's all about your levels. Hoping those are great!

  3. Sorry to hear about your sister. I hope everything goes okay with her! I hate how the doctors act so cavalier about the whole thing. That's why I changed doctors after the last loss.

    I had the same experience with AF too with it being later than normal after my last baby. I think the fact that I was freaking out about it being late made it even later...not sure about that though. It can be upsetting by try to relax. This may be TMI, but an orgasm always seems to get it started for me. It's worth a try!

  4. Thanks for all the support guys! It really helped today. I was down in the dumps, but getting your comments definitely made me feel better.

    Angie-Thanks...your right, it is all about the levels, I'm trying to focus on that. I guess I'm hanging on to the way my last cycle went. I might not have my period, but I would say the hormones are right in line! lol

    Rachael- Thanks for the tip! :-)
