False Alarm

So friday was the baby shower at Mike's work which was super fun, but I have no pictures right now. I will post when I get pictures. After the baby shower I wasn't feeling very good, so I laid down for a while. When I got back up I was still feeling really sick (headache, nausea, lightheaded, mild contractions) so at my mom's insistence I called my doctor who told me to go to the hospital (since it was time for them to close) to get check for preeclampsia (which is when the mom gets sick). So I called brittany to see if she would come get me since Mike wasn't off of work. She ended up getting caught in traffic so they arrived home about the same time. So for the next 5 hours this is what we did...

The blue band is a monitor for contractions, the pink for the baby's heart rate. The nurse put me on a an IV for fluids after drawing blood. My hands and feet were pretty swollen so the nurse had a hard time finding my veins which was not very fun.
As it turns out I may have had a little bit of a flu bug, but they said everything looked really good so they didn't induce me (which is good and bad). So we went home. Saturday I woke up ok, but I didn't stay well and by the time we were supposed to go to Stake Conference I wasn't doing so well and we didn't go. Sunday I felt great! I got stuff done (nesting urge) and was good. So It was defintetly an interesting weekend. Tomorrow is my doctor's appointment and we'll see what he says.
