Spent the night at L&D - Page 2

post #21 of 43

OMG. I just spent some time on youtube watching preemie videos. Wow. We really have babies. Amazing.

Just wanted to check in with you sweetie...Have been keeping you in my thoughts. I have a dear friend who was put on bed rest in her 2nd month of pregnancy...she was so afraid as she lost her first daughter to cancer. They were really worried...but I wanted to tell you that though she was on complete bed rest and pelvic rest all together (no bending or anything else) Her twins were born full term!!! So keep those feet up and stack up a bunch of books! Your kiddos will be o.k. In the meantime....hang in there. blowkiss.gif

ya, those videos are great for people that don't ever get to see that.
The ONE good thing about dd3 being born early is that she may have saved her little brother, because we were extra cautious this pregnancy, where if I'd continued with my m/w, we would have just ignored them. This is because in my second pregnancy I had similar contractions (from 28weeks on) and she ended up being born at 41 weeks. This time we obviously needed to pay more attention!
And, if heaven forbid he IS born early and needs NICU time, then we'll know what to expect as dd3 spent 2 weeks there, and we already know the building, the routines, the staff, etc very well. There won't be the OMG shock like there was last time, or the incredible fear when other babies (usually much sicker with genetic issues) die in the beds next to her.

EB: THANK YOU mama! I hate checking in day to day as I myself get sick of complaining. smile.gif It isn't good on the mojo! lol. I'm doing ok...still getting a lot of contractions, mostly in the evenings. Last night got sketchy, but they finally slowed down. I'm getting kind of nervous for Monday, even though I know it's out of my control. I'm afraid I'll have to miss more of the summer outside, and of my girls'.

Personally...I'd love to fast forward through the summer to the end when I get to have my buttercup in my arms all pink and wiggly. I'd feel much better if I could do that. Unfortunately, I have to just hang out and WAIT. I can understand the anxiety....big time.

Sending you warmth and sticky baby thoughts! And hey...hanging out on a lawn chair by a blow up pool in the summer isn't the worst thing that could happen... but bed rest in the winter? no thanks. ugggg....

Oh no! Hang in there! I know how it feels and what a scary situation it truly is. With my son, I almost delivered him at right around 7 months because they couldn't control my contractions. I was in and out of L&D 8-9 times if not more and had some very close calls where they almost had to airlift me to a different hospital because nothing they were giving me would stop the contractions. I spent two months straight on strict bed rest and felt like a complete prisoner in my own home while taking medicines to keep me from going back into labor. Praying for you and your little boy! I hope he stays in and continues to bake a pt least a little longer if not full term!

Thanks so much you guys! It's wonderful knowing that people are thinking of us...I tend to feel forgotten and lost in our tiny little town lol.

Contractions still suck. I usually have a couple of good days after my shots (wednesdays) but yesterday was pretty bad. It's getting harder and harder to do even basic "mommy" tasks, and the kids are suffering because of it. We're looking at getting some help, because even getting up to go kiss a boo-boo starts contractions for a while. I'm pretty adamant to not take the drugs, so I tend to take it extra easy. I have another cervix check on Monday, and I'm praying it still holds!

My thoughts are with you and your family.

I hope you can find some help, Jill, and those contractions stay quiet! Rooting for you and your baby!

I hope you get the help that you you need. You are doing great so far. hug.gif

Jill, have you posted in your tribal area?  I know your tagline is that you're in a hole by a mountain, but maybe someone would be nearby?  I'm glad to see that you're trying to get some help, but it sounds like you need more than some help, you need lots of help!

 

Thinking thick cervical thoughts for you!!

Keep those feet up and call the kiddos TO you to kiss boo boos. ((HUG)) They will learn fast enough that if they need something they will be able to do it for themselves...and yes, getting help is a great idea! Keeping you in my heart...blowkiss.gif

There are a whole bunch of ladies about 2 hours away, but we are REALLY REALLY rural, and I've posted in there many times over the years without finding anyone! eyesroll.gif
