Laying In My Electric Bed

I wish I had great news to give but I will start from last Friday. I was checked again and they said I had improved a lot and allowed me to go home. My weekend was great, I got to spend time at home with Ian and enjoy some quality time with my Husband.

I scheduled my next OB appointment for Wednesday because the doctors wanted a follow up. At the appointment, right away he told me that he wished he could say I could stay home but my cervix was just too short (1.07cm) and funneling. I was so surprised to hear this since I had been following strict bedrest at home and been feeling pretty good.

Once I got here last night, they did the usual admittance check. I was hooked up to the contraction monitor and to my surprise I was having contractions but couldn’t even feel them. They put me on Gynipral through IV to keep the contractions away. I am supposed to stay on this for three days. It is noon here and I haven’t felt any contractions, so I guess all is good. The doctor came in earlier and said they might transfer me to another hospital this weekend that can handle preemie births, but she said she will have to talk to the chief about that first. So I am here to stay in the hospital till the girls make their arrival. It is going to be a rough ride.

I cannot believe how fast things can change without you even knowing it and even more how different pregnancies can be. With Ian I pretty much had a picture perfect pregnancy and now this is the complete opposite. I hope I can keep the Twins in, to at least 32 weeks. My emotions are really all over the place. Please continue praying for us.
