I don't blame you, I'd probably do the same shit

Wow :shock: that's not comforting at all :( is there another nicu nearby?

No this is the one they transfer all nicu babies to from other hospitals.

Sunday January 13 2012 Day 9
I have good new and bad news. It's looking like as long as I stay good with no leaking, bleeding, contractions, and baby's HB, my blood pressure and my temp stay good I can go home Tuesday or Wednesday. I had a long talk with the high risk doc today. He said if fluid levels are up Tuesday we will make a plan for me to go home. I asked what if the fluid levels aren't back to normal, and he said then I would be a candidate for the dye test where they inject blue dye with the same type of procedure as an amniocentesis but they shoot it in instead of pulling something out. Then you put in a tampon and see what happens.
I asked him what we can do if I don't want to do the dye test, because it's obvious to me I'm not leaking anymore and I don't want to do it. I told him I hate it here, I have no privacy, I feel like yeah I'm safe IF something were to happen but I live close by anyway and it's not like they are actually doing anything for me. I don't need fluids, I don't need special meds. I'm just laying here in bed all day. I could do that at home. He seemed very understanding and open to letting me still go home as long as I have some fluid! I asked, "So on Friday there were a few pockets but they were small. Does that mean there was enough to be satisfied with?" He said yes! So as long as I have the same or more I will probably be going home Tuesday. Then I would be coming back every Friday and Tuesday for ultrasounds/ other tests and meeting with the high risk doctor on Tuesdays. On the 22nd I will have another echocardiogram to check on the heart and they will also measure the baby to see how he's growing. The last time they measured him was the 5th so it will be 2 1/2 weeks later. If he's not growing consistently, they will probably want to take him out because that means the placenta isn't doing it's job and he's not getting everything he needs. I'm hoping this isn't the case! I will only be 28 1/2 weeks so...that won't be good.

That would be nice to just do bed rest at home instead. I hope your fluid continues to rise. Good luck and keep us updated of course :)

I'm thinking he has more fluid because he is moving around like crazy. Usually he's kicking a lot, but last night his head moved all the way from my right side to my left side which NEVER happens, and right now I can't even find it so it's a mystery lol. I'm really hoping he's trying to flip. I keep waiting ro feel kicks up higher but nope they're still in the normal spot. Idk what the hell he's doing in there

Fingers crossed for you!
I know it'll be a relief to finally go home, especially since you've been leak-free for a good amount of time. I'm sure you already know, but pound down that water and stay hydrated :)

I'm glad to hear things are stabalizing for you! On a positive note I just wanted to share with you that I had something similar at 28 weeks (water ruptured, contracting every 3 minutes, 3 cm dilated, bleeding profusely from a previously undiagnosed previa) they basically told me I was having a c-section in 2 days or less, that I likely wouldn't make it 24 hours but our goal was to be 48 for the steroid shots to work but that there was absolutely no way that I would make it beyond that.....I made it to 39 weeks :) There's always room for hope!
