My trip to the Triage of Labor and Delivery EARLY Friday Morning

So I had false labor on Monday, and the next day I started feeling really swollen and a little itchy, I figured I was going in Thursday I would talk to the doctor about it then. So Wednesday it got a little worse and then Thursday morning I was really itchy and the doctor thought that I had eaten too much salt for dinner the night or two before causing swelling and itching. I have been losing about a pound a day, and my blood pressure was perfect, so she didn't see a problem other than me just swelling up. She told me to put hydrocortizone on my hands to help with the itching. I went home and it started getting really bad really fast. By 6 or 7 I told Evan that something was wrong and I started itching all over my body, I called my mom for advice and tried to down as much water as I could to flush out the swelling. Well, we ended up calling my friend and asking for advice, since she works with pregnant women, and her husband came over to help Evan give me a blessing around 10:00pm. It was a good blessing and I felt comforted, and felt that I needed to call the nurse, but wanted to chug more water first. So by the time I called around 11:00, the nurse told me that I needed to take benedryl and soak in baking soda water.
before swelling and then after swelling up around 11pm(not even half of what it became)



After finding the benedryl and soaking and crying lots because my hands, face, legs, feet and back of my head were all now swollen, itchy, burning, covered in hives and welts, I tried going to sleep just after midnight. I told Evan that I might need to wake him up in the middle of the night to help me or drive me to the ER. I woke up around 1:30 and hurt so much and my hands were now doubled in size and I couldn't even bend my fingers, they had to stay straight because of how swollen they were. I was in tears, and Evan was getting everything ready to take us to the hospital. We got to the hospital around 2am, and they hooked us up to the monitors and started working on what the problem was.



They thought that I had eaten something to cause this reaction, but nothing new was introduced into my diet. They said I didn't overeat on salt, that wouldn't have caused this much of a reaction. My blood pressure was perfect again, and everything was getting ruled out for a different cause. I was in SOOO much pain..I could hardly move, and I itched and burned soooo much. They made little ice packs for me to hold onto to try to calm my hands down. After getting a urine sample and blood work drawn up, I had to wait for those results and for the attending doctor to finish a c-section before she could come help us. Meanwhile the monitors showed the baby was perfect and happy inside of me:)..(doesn't she know she needs to come out already!!!!)

We didn't get a picture at my worst point, but my fingers looked something like these that I found on the internet....
(not my hands)

So, Evan watched sports center and tried staying awake for me, and I kept trying to get comfortable while drifting in and out of sleep. The entire time I was hooked up to monitors and Evan kept trying to videotape our baby moving...she moved SOOO much, and we finally got a good video of her towards the end. (Everytime we tried getting her on video this pregnancy, she would be camera shy) They had great ice for me to chomp on...I have been craving ice this entire pregnancy!!! (I love Sonic ice)
video
Finally around 7am, they were allowed to give me benedryl and send me home with a week supply of steroids. I was still swollen, I can't hold things very well because of the pressure and burning and itchy feelings, so Evan is doing TONS for me.

We got discharged at 7:30 and went home. We went through the drive thru pharmacy at RiteAid to get more bendryl and finally made it home. Evan showered and went off to work. Poor guy, no sleep and had to work still. I slept all day, the Benedryl really knocks you out! Evan came home and crashed as well. He said that a lady at work swelled up right before delivering, so maybe this is a good sign???

I was totally bummed out because I was going to have breakfast with the Mia Maids, and I couldn't function, so they switched it to a different house. While I was working on this blog, they all stopped by with a card...so sweet!!!!! I love my Mia Maid girls! I hope this baby comes soon so that I can do more activities with them.

I am feeling a little better, just extrememly itchy and still have hives all over and some swelling. I wish It could all go away right now, but I guess I am having the trial now, and will be blessed with a baby afterwards...

So now, we are nearing the 38 week mark..we shall see:)

Oh Hilary! Not fun at all! I am so sorry you are having to go through all of this. Hopefully Lucy will get the memo soon.

Nolo and Lauren said...

poor Hil... I'm praying for you. I really hope you get filling better soon. my love is with you.

Angela said...

Hilary- I had those symptoms right before Mitchell. My wrists hands and ankles were swollen so much I couldn't wear any shoes, and my fingers were so swollen they went numb and I started crying because I couldn't hold my fork up to eat! So Alexander fed me. Hang in there, you will be amazed at how good you will feel after Lucy comes out! it all gets better. I'm thinking of you!

Shenna said...

Poor thing!!! That doesn't sound like any fun at all. I hope it is all over soon for you! :)

Amanda said...

My heart goes out to you. Let me know if I can ever help.

coloradoeaston said...

I feel for you. I had the same thing at the end of my pregnancy with Isaac. I was soooo swollen but I didn't have the itchy part. I can't imagine, how miserable. Just keep telling yourself "this to shall pass." Your almost there, hang in there.

Ugh, that sounds aweful! It will be over soon, and amazingly you won't remember all the horrible things that happened when you are holding your own baby. I know it sucks to hear people say that, but it is true.

I will not agree on it. I regard as nice post. Particularly the title attracted me to be familiar with the sound story.
