I rang in my 30th birthday (until about 4 am) in the labor and delivery ward of the hospital thinking I was in labor. I had terrible back pain and contractions every 90 seconds apart. I was really terrified of having her 8 weeks premature but I could not imagine what on earth was causing the terrible pain I was feeling other than labor. Well, long story short and several days later it turns out I've got kidney stones.

I haven't gone to work all week. I haven't done anything except go to the doctor and feel sorry for myself. I have an u/s tomorrow to see how things are going, how many there are, etc. Nothing has passed yet.

The good news is that they did an fFn test and it's not likely I'll go into preterm labor in the next 7 to 14 days. The fierce contractions I was having were irritbility contractions from the pain and stress on my system. The baby is in really good condition, strong HB, doing well. So on that front I couldn't be happier.

But I feel like shit and am so whiny and woah-is-me that I'm sure I'm miserable to be around.

What the hell is in the water up here that both Mark and I have now had stones?
