A Stressful Day

Jan 9, 2012

We had a great weekend this past weekend. We spent Friday night with friends, and the weekend with my family on the farm. We got back in decent time Sunday so Daniel could pack up and leave for a busy week at meetings in Saskatoon. I thought I would take total advantage of being home alone and get some cleaning and lots of organizing done, but after today I don't think I will be doing any of that.

I made an emergency appointment with an intern at the doctor's clinic. My regular N.P. wasn't in but I need to see someone. I was having bad cramps and my back has been super sore the past couple days. My N.P. kept telling me if your having cramps there isn't anything we can do to save baby, etc.. I wasn't really worried about it at the start, and I just kept assuming that what I was having was the round ligament pain I keep hearing about. So she made me do the usual urine sample, then hop up on the bed to find the heartbeat. It took her almost 15 minutes to find the heartbeat, and in the mean time I'm close to panic! She eventually found it and promised me it was healthy and strong! Turns out I just have the beginnings of a lovely bladder infection, and was prescribed some weak antibiotics. She mentioned she can't give me anything stronger because I'm pregnant, and should drink lots of fluids to help flush out the infection, and should also take it easy and hopefully my back pain will heal itself. Well, since I'm home alone I friend up some fresh fish in a flour coating and bought a salad from the grocery store, and I also managed to make some of the most delicious banana bread I have ever had!
