In need of sedation

I found out, mostly because I had an intuition that something was off, that J discharged herself against medical advice, and has gone home. Nobody even bothered informing me of this: I found out because I asked.

I don't know her medical condition and what was done in the past 4 days when she was in the hospital. Right now, I have to wonder if the baby would be safer out of her than in her, but we have to wait to talk to the OB to figure that out.

I have to take really deep breaths and pray that everything will be okay.


  1. Hugs. I'm so sorry to hear this. I hope that J and your baby are both okay. Sending good thought!

  2. Oh no, stress & worry you did not need. Thinking good thoughts for you & your babe

  3. Hang in there - I can't even imagine how hard it must be to have so little control over all this. I hope you get to talk to the OB soon and get some (hopefully reassuring) updates. UGH.

  4. I am so sorry - This would make me crazy.

  5. What a super stressful turn of events! So sorry. I know you are ready to get in and see that doctor...you are so close now, to meeting your baby. Hang in there...

  6. How freaking scary. Hope you find out more, thinking of you.

  7. Oh dear. I'd be so stressed. Hoping and praying that everything turns out ok.

  8. I say keep off the sedatives for now. You might need all your faculties in the days/weeks to come.
    I'm sorry this is unfolding not according to your wishes. I sincerely hope all is well with J and the baby.
    FYI, I know we are talking about very different situations, but I was managed out of hospital for the last 2 weeks of my pregnancy even though my bp was very high. The beta-blocker helped and I continued to be monitored, which I hope will be true for J.
    Keep us posted.
