A tiny scare...

We had quite the scare this morning! I tried to go to sleep last night, but woke up with a terrible sideache and back pain...not to mention flu like symptoms...so much so that there was no way I could handle it. I didn't know if I was in labor or if the baby was okay...very scary. We ended up going to our Hospital, where they monitored the baby and me and she was fine, and gave me some tylenol with codine. PG and I decided to try to manage the pain at home, since Avery was with us and the whole insurance stuff. We came home, and after an hour or so of the worst back pain ever, I called my BIG TOWN doctors, and they told me to go back to the hospital here in town ASAP. They weren't sure if it was kidney, baby, infections, or placenta issues, so off we went again at 4 am with Avery with us, and that's when it all got a little crazy...I was contracting every 2 minutes, in horrible pain, and so they gave me some medicine to stop the contractions. The placenta and baby looked great on ultrasound, so no worries there. The cause of it all....a kidney infection. That was what made the back pain horrible, and the infection was causing the uterus to react and contract...putting me in pre-term labor. So, lots of medicine, and tears, and no sleep later, I was able to come back home this morning, free of pain...PRAISE GOD! My poor husband and daughter had to go through all this with me with no sleep. PG had like 30-45 minutes of sleep, and he had to preach this morning...If there is an award, he deserves one!Please pray for the contractions not to come back, and the kidney infection to also be treated with the meds. We are very excited to meet Olivia, but we'd like to keep it on the 24th if at all possible!
