labor and delivery....

I'm at l&d due to tummy pains again... I'm dilated 2 cm and contractions.are 9 min apart. They are keeping me in giving me meds to stop labor.. got steroids for their lungs. Dr said if labor stops I will be here until I deliver and on strickt bed rest...
My boys are doing well. Heartbeats and everything are strong. Please send a prayer or 2... I'm scared I'm actually in labor... 30 weeks is too soon...

Sending prayers and positive energy. I'm sure they'll be able to get them to stop. Its a good sign that your water hasn't broken. They are both just so excited to see their nursery that momma worked so hard to get ready for them :)

Thank you ladies. They did manage to get them stopped for now. But they are keeping me on them iv and in here for a few days to see how things go. My water hasn't broken but they want me on strickt bed rest until 35-36 weeks. I've been given steroids for their lil lungs. Got this is so.scary .. but everything will be OK at this point right? They won't give me a straight answer! I'm still dilated at a 2 so that's a good thing I guess since it didn't get worse. Anyone have a cork and superglue I can borrow? Lol

What would I do without you ladies. You have all been a huge support for me this pregnancy..  

I comforted by your stories and hearing other babies have been fine born early.. gives me more hope. :-)  

I can't sleep nurses keep coming in every hour to check my blood pressure or something. Grr

Eh sleep is overrated...that's what I keep telling myself anyway. Glad you have the means to keep entertained while there (via the web). Contractions finally all stopped?

So glad to hear contractions are stopping. I have a feeling you're gonna have two fiesty little boys with how they are already giving you a hard time :)   Hopefully the nurses will give you some peace and you can get some sleep.

Just think.....rough pregnancy....easy birth. We've got this!
Blank
4437866_tn?1388123224
I've got that same feeling! I'm gonna blame their father for that since I'm an angel haha.
They have me on a stronger dose of anti contraction meds. That's should stop them I hope...

Oh Emma!! How scary. Ill be praying for you. I'm so glad to hear your contractions are slowing way down.  At this point, even though your boys would have a long haul, they should be fine. Just take it week by week at this point. At this stage a lot happens with their development in a week and there are so many resources available to babies born this early. You guys will be fine. I believe someone upstairs must have some pretty big and special plans for you. You're a strong woman!!

Update?????

Everything is OK for now. They are keeping me until I deliver.But Dr was talking about pulling the babes at 35 weeks or so depending how I'm holding up. They have me on them anti contraction meds now again
They took me off for a little bit and sure enough they started again. I'm not quite 3 cm. Dilated and about 70% effaced. This is going to be a very long stay ladies...  oh and I'm on a horrible diet since I failed the glucose test... don't have diabetes but I am hypoglycemic....

Lots of oranges eh? Well you were expecting them early...now you have a clue of when..Only 4 1/2 more weeks. We will have to keep you entertained while your stuck on bedrest.
Blank
4437866_tn?1388123224
I was. Just didn't think this soon. Thank god for medication haha.
Nurses are pretty nice. Kinda slow when you ask for something. Took me over an hour for water refill...of well. Least they don't work for tips haha. Sorry I'm bored right now.

Just remember it'll be all worth it once they are here and healthy. How's your son handling this?

You ladies are awesome you know that?
I'm sorry I've been away for a bit
Been catching up on sleep when I can. I'm well rested now :-)
Contractions have stopped but dilated to 3 cm so I'm stuck here until d day. Everything is going great other than that. the staff here is amazing with allowing my son to come and visit me everyday. We get to have our dinner together and part of his homework. Babies are rolling now. No more hard kicks.
Blank
4268628_tn?1375044776
Yay that things are calming down. Wanna catch up on some sleep for me while your at it? :)  is that something to expect, the kicks turning from hard to rolling???
Blank
4484425_tn?1384231934
Happy to hear things are on the mellow side :)  Yep Flickan its something you can expect. As baby gets bigger they run out of room so they can really kick anymore so they just roll and push mostly. Mine loves to stretch out and it'll feel like she's gonna push right threw my skin when she does it.
Blank
4545793_tn?1394596144
Aww rolling babies how cute !! Mine is rolling alot too but he thinks he has room in my belly to stretch ya doesn't feel to great lol
Blank
4268628_tn?1375044776
I'm still getting the kicks. She is breech so she is trying to use my bladder for a soccer ball....when she doesn't aim straight down...good to know. I will be excited to not have those random hits. Rolling sounds like less pain.
Blank
4437866_tn?1388123224
Its still painful time to time. Lol. Not as bad as kicks but still knocks breath out sometimes
Blank
5305961_tn?1366466454
I've been away for a while, just thought I would check to see if you were still in the hospital and if you had the babies yet. I have a long way to go, at about 7 weeks now. Having nausea constantly. but so worth it. well i hope you have a great day !
