I just saw this (no internet access on the weekends...)

I'm going to be thinking of you all day... I hope all is well, and if LO has arrived by this time, that he/she is fighting as hard as you've fought... you're a wonderful mama, and this is gonna turn out for the best.

Hugs and hugs and hugs for you, mama...

Hey ladies... Sorry I couldnt update you guys yesterday. I said I was going to have my sister update you but I couldnt even talk to her yesterday. Some people tried calling but I could not even lift up the phone to hold it. I did try answering it once (I guess when my birth buddy called) but it just fell back down. I couldnt even turn myself over in the bed and I was having some nausea and vomitting

I was having contractions on Saturday night and they upped the mag Sunday morning and I went downhill from there. I couldnt move or anything. Mag SUCKS!! They have stopped it now though and Im feeling a lot better but now they are watching for infection. My temp has been up and down but not high and WBC has been up and down (currently down) so they are just keeping an eye on it. Because the baby is fine with no fluid they arent worried about that but if any problems start happening then they will take the baby. They are thinking of moving me from the room Im currently in into another room where I will stay until this baby is here. For now though, things are good.

Im only on antibiotics and fluid. My blood pressure dropped too much on the mag so they stopped it and they stopped giving me the procardia because my pressure is still low but its going back up some. It was 60's over 30's but now its back in the upper 80's over 50's... a little low for me but closer to normal.

Im not really having any contractions since the mag and procardia has been stopped so thats a good thing.

I know you feel bad, but glad baby is doing well. You're 26 weeks today, right? Every little day counts.

The doctors are using a due date of 29th of June but that is not correct. So by them I am 26 weeks yesterday... By my dates (day of conception) Im due 3rd July and will be 26 weeks on Thursday.

I moved rooms. Im going to stay into this room until I deliver.

Khourniey - I just came to MDC for the first time since Friday and found your post. You are going to be in my thoughts and prayers non-stop until I hear you are holding your healthy preemie.

I am glad to hear the contractions stopped. I hope the baby can stay in there a bit longer.

Khourtniey, You & your babe are so in our thoughts!

Your experience really sounds so miserable on the mag. It just seems like the nastiest stuff! I'm so sorry you had to go through that!

It sounds like really good news that your ctx have lightened up even off the mag & procardia. I hope your babe can stay in a lil longer, maybe make it to his/her official 26 week point.

Sending you love!

Still thinking of you and the babe. I hope the baby keeps baking, and that you start to feel better since stopping the medicine.
