Hey sorry it's been forever but i've been away from the internet for a WHILE!!!! Baby girl is still hanging in there. I got put in the hospital like i said on November 2nd and had to be given 3 brethrine shots and a whole bag of magnesium (sp?) to stop my contractions that night. I was released from the hosptial on November 3rd at about 5pm and went home to rest. Well, two days later I ended up back in the hospital back I was running a fever of 102.1 and contracting again. Come to find out i had the flu and got to spend another night in the hospital until my fever broke. I got to go home the next morning at 6am. Then about a week later I ended up having to go back to the hospital and getting two more shots of brethrine to stop my contractions again. I'm only .5cm dilated and 50% effaced right now. I was on the brethrine pills from week 34 until week 37 and now i'm almost 38 weeks and the doctor has taken me completely off my medication so I finally get to have Emma if she would just decide to get here now lol. Tomorrow was my day that I guessed she would get here but I'm not too sure now. She's being so stubborn right now!!!! I will get contractions every 5 minutes for about 30 minutes or so and then they will just stop for a little bit. I am completely off of work until she gets here too. It sucks that we didn't have more time to save more money for my leave but i'm getting short term disability from both my job and from AFLAC so that should help some. I hope everyone is doing well and it's nice to see that there are mommy's having their babies and they are healthy!!!! I hope to get to welcome my little one soon!!! She's out of room COMPLETELY!!! At my ultrasound when i was 35 weeks they said she's growing great and that she was measuring around 5lbs 6oz and that was almost 3 weeks ago. SOOOO i might be a little off on my weight guess for my little one too lol.
