We found out today what the baby is... but I wouldn't recommend our method for acquiring an ultrasound. I woke up this morning feeling fine, but by quarter to nine, I was having such bad abdominal pain we were heading for the hospital. It didn't feel like I was having contractions, but the pain was so intense I did worry I was in labor.
I ended up being in the hospital until 5:00 this evening. I had every test imaginable, including an ultrasound for Baby Boy White! Everything tested out fine-- no kidney stones, bladder infection, pre-term labor, etc. So I was left with excruciating pain for the afternoon AND the feeling that I was a hypochondriac! The end result was that I am now home, feeling MUCH better. The pain started lifting about five, and it's pretty mild now. The doctor says the only thing he can think of is some sort of gastro-intestinal bug.
So, after a day of writhing in pain and bawling like a baby, while not eating anything all day, I am now home, glad that my little boy intends to stay inside for a while longer! I'm glad we had a nice lazy afternoon yesterday, since I certainly did not get my lovely Sunday afternoon this week! Thanks to Ginger, we didn't have to worry about our kids today-- she took the three of them to meeting this morning, and watched them all afternoon for us!
