Been to there done that. So we had our first trip to the hospital this afternoon. It wasn't due to contractions or labor or whatever. . .I had a little "episode" this morning. Around 9 am I was helping get the kids ready for the day. I had had a blueberry muffin, water and a little coffee for breakfast. Well around 9 am I started feeling really weird. Like I was in a cloud. I couldn't focus, my heart was racing, I couldn't answer questions really. Anyways, I figured I was fine and really shouldn't be having a problem so I drove to Target and let me Mom run in real fast to get a camera battery. While she was inside Grace kept talking to me and I couldn't answer her. Nothing was really computing in my head. When I did answer her my answers were not making sense. When my mom came out I drove to Panera Bread. I thought some food would help me out. We got there and I couldn't figure out the menu. Like, it wouldn't make sense. I couldn't make sense of any of it. Finally I ordered a chicken Cesar salad since I knew they had that...its not what I really wanted but I just felt like I was in a daze and couldn't make sense of anything. . .or answer any questions people were asking me. It was really weird. My mom drove us home and I took a nap. When I got up I had a really bad head ache and took some Tylenol. When Mike got home around 3:30 pm. he called the doctor and my first trip to the hospital began. I was starving. They monitored the baby. . .all looked well. They asked me a bunch of questions and decided it was probably related to my blood sugar in some way. After my doctor was called back I had to get a CAT scan to make sure my brain was OK. It was. It was still there all in working order. . .the final conclusion was that my blood sugar level had a major drop after the muffin and it was taking my body a little bit to get it up to normal again. I don't have diabetes or anything, it was just from "fasting" all night and then starting my day off with a bit too much sugar. I had been having contractions that I could feel and that also showed up on the monitor so they went ahead and checked me again. I was 4 cm and 80% so there was some progress from yesterday. The house doctor said they could probably get me a little pitocin to get my started and let me have the baby if I wanted. I declined and am still hoping we see the new little one by Saturday.
