When we got to the hospital contractions were between 2-4 minutes apart, so they gave me magnesium to stop the labor and steriod shots for baby's lungs. My dr. was *wonderful* as was my husband. The dr.'s best guess is that the baby will be here in 10-12 days (my due date is 10/16). I'm 70 percent effaced and the head is fully engaged. She was able to feel his head easily during my check. I'm on bed rest - obviously - and feeling a tiny bit overwhelmed. Good news is that baby looks great and should be just fine - she said generally babies over 34 weeks (I'll be that on Monday) don't need breathing help and go home with momma.
