Exciting Night Out at Labor and Delivery 25 weeks

Ladies... Drink your fluids!!

For two days in a row with breaks I kept feeling a really strong pain in my abdomen above my bump. Yesterday afternoon I slept all afternoon but could not get comfortable. Eventually I vomited. So, finally I called my doctor and he advised me to go to Labor and Delivery at my hospital. They told me I was having contractions, like in false labor, and concluded it was probably from dehydration. It was 104° here in LA, so this makes sense, even though I drank like 2 liters of fluid. They put me on an IV and sent me home. Overnight I slept with a heating pad on my abdomen because the contractions were still there. Today I feel way better but I'm hungry and can't seem to drink enough fluids! So crazy!
