Still PG but the terb didn't do too much after an hr so I am on magnesium sulfate and that spaced them out a little but still having ctx. I don't think I'll be discharged before delivery but I have no idea, I guess, and no idea when these little guys are going to come. I hope not for awhile. They look great on their NSTs at least.

Thank you. I'm very thankful to say that I was discharged to home! I didn't think I would be but God answered many prayers and my cervix didn't further dilate. I see my OB Tues and have to go back if things get bad again but for now I am going to enjoy a nice nap in my own bed since I didn't sleep last night.
Thank you! Yes, my afternoon nap gave me much more sleep than the barely an hr I got at the hospital. I think it'll take me all tomorrow to recover from lack of sleep there and the magnesium sulfate is still making me really tired and nauseated. It was so good to see my little girl this morning and so good to be home. My mom is back with us now, too, so if we have an emergency again she is here. It was scary thinking I might have to be alone for a section if we couldn't get anyone to watch her.
Banana - I was at 1 cm 4 weeks ago when I was first hospitalized (wow, 4 weeks of bed rest so far!) and I was 1-2 cm this weekend and 50% effaced. When the nurse put her fingers in to check she said "oh no!" I said "oh no?" I don't know what, I thought I'd be a lot further along and delivery was imminent when she said that. I really didn't get along with her between giving me IV fluids when I was already quite hydrated and then arguing with me that dehydration causes ctx, not drinking too much but I said a full bladder causes them too. So I had to go to the bathroom getting in and out of the hospital bed, unhooking myself from the monitor and dragging the IV pole a few times/hr.
