It's currently 2 in the morning ...and I have to be up and at work in 5 hours. I can't sleep. I slept for about an hour and then woke up in quite excruciating right upper quadrant abdominal pain that immediately made me think "HELLP" syndrome. Now that the thought is there ...the anxiety is preventing sleep more than the pain, even. It's stupid. I don't know what possessed me to watch ER tonight other than the fact that it was the last episode ...but it's never good to watch a pregnant woman die during delivery when you are ...you know ..pregnant.
The last couple of weeks have been interesting. I went into some pre-term labor last Sunday for a little more than an hour ...contractions every 3 minutes or so for an hour that were fairly uncomfortable. The next day my cervix had started to thin and I've been a paranoid freak ever since. I've had a couple of random contractions here and there which I always immediately drown with about 2 quarts of water.
The pain is actually much better now that I'm sitting up and hunched forward with my elbows on my knees. Maybe I'll try and catch some quick z's like this. Otherwise ..I'm going to have to call in to work in the morning ...and I can't stand that idea :/. Wish me luck.
