Well I went to my doctors appointment. She sent me to the emergency department of our regional hospital. Thankfully my mum was already watching DS.
So I had an interesting hours drive in heaps of pain in the car.
When I got into the ED they said that they thought it might be kidney stones. Usually they would do a CT scan to check, but because I'm pregnant they didn't want to do that. They wanted to do an ultrasound instead. But by the time I had got there it was too late to do an ultrasound.
They were trying to get my pain under control while they figured out where to put me. They gave me some coedine, but that didn't do anything. So they gave me 5mg of morphine. It took the edge off, but I was still in a lot of pain. So they gave me another 5mg, and then another, but it didn't do anything.
I ended up staying overnight in the Women's Assessment Unit because I'm pregnant.
In the morning my pain was a lot better. I was told that depending on the scan results I might have needed surgery. But then the pain went away. They took me for an ultrasound and found everything to be fine. So I got discharged.
So they think it was kidney stones, even though I didn't feel any pass. Yay for me.
Poor DS missed me, but when he and DH came to see me yesterday he didn't want to give me a cuddle. I think he was a bit scared because I had an IV in.
DH told me he missed me too. Poor guy had no idea what to do without me. He told me that when he got DS dressed in the morning he saw that DS didn't have any clean undies, and worried that he would have to do some washing when they got home. I didn't tell him that he would have found some clean ones if he had looked in the basket of folded washing roll eyes
