apparently it was going TOO slow.
spent an absolute BLAST of a nite in the hospital in labor & delivery being hooked up to monitors to eliminate the possibility that my body has begun to shut down on this pregnancy. I have never, during ANY pregnancy thus far, spent that much time flat on a bed with straps hooked up to me! It was TORTURE!!!!
the good news is that all looks good now.
The bad news is – there really isn’t a reason why. Of course there isn’t. There never is with me – it just IS.
So my go home instructions: go on a low salt diet (i think this may be the worst form of human torture encountered in my life thus far), and restrict your daily activities. If anyone has a handbook on HOW to do that, please share.
