Several things have changed since I last posted. 9 min contractions took me to LDR Wednesday night. Over night stay then released with the contractions being 11 min then. Got home exhaulsted (hard beds) Rested for a couple hour while the boy's parents were on their way. My Illinois doctor suggested getting my butt 'here' asap. So I am now in Illinois until delivery. I have spent the last 2 days in a hospital bed and am planning on 1 more. When we got into town Thurs I was to go to LDR for monitoring and steroid shot and I am still here. Praying I can go to M&M's house tomorrow and relax until D-day.
Got the 1st steriod shot last night.
Labs drawn for pre-eclampsia screen last night.
Currently in the process of a 24 hr urine collection.
Started Nifedipine last night, to stop my contractions that were 4 min apart.
Still having them, not sure how far apart they are. Just tired now and need some sleep!!!!
I had an u/s done this morning by a specialtist in high risk preg. Boys weigh 4.2 & 4.7 lbs. They look good. Both placenta are out of the way for a vag delivery. A has flipped head down... B is transverse.
At the hosp. back home the doctor checked me and said I was 1-2 cm and 20% effaced with a -2 station.
During the vag u/s he said without anyone poking and prodding in there... I appeared closed and he didn't expect me to deliver within the week b/c of the length of the cervix.
OK e'nuff of me... hope all is well.
