I've been off my Procardia for a few weeks now. It was sending my pulse rate above 200! I was to take it as needed, but I haven't needed it at all! Now, no more bedrest! I have three more weeks of the progesterone suppositories for the study. And we agreed since I've always delivered before 36 weeks to do the GBS test next week. Turns out I was negative the first two time, but I was treated anyway because the tests never came back in time. All in all great news for me!

WOOHOO for you!!!! YEAH! So glad to hear that things are still going well! I'm down to 9 more hours of terb. After midnight tonight, dd is welcome to show up whenever she wants! I'm just glad to be out of the woods, so to speak. I'm sure you must be feeling a lot of relief. Just keep telling that baby to stay put for a little longer. Take care!

Me too!!!

Brinda, that IS great news!!!
I am pretty much right there with you
I just flew to NY for just one day for work-my doctor let me and everything was fine!
Ive been lying down since I got home from NY though...except I did let myself wash all the baby clothes and clean up the laundry room which was a disaster. Which totally fulfilled my nesting urges that have been bottled up for so long now with this bedrest!!!
And today DB cleaned THE WHOLE house.
Dare I say I am ACTUALLY STARTING TO FEEL READY!!!!!!! Of course I want baby to stay in for awhile still. Im due May 21st, but my doc and I dont think I will be making it to my due date. Im thinking sometime around May 15 is ok with me!!!
Until then I am still going to try to take it easy..and stay in bed as much as possible.
Stay put little babies, not much longer to go!!!

Happy mama to my four girls S 8.15.02 , L 04.25.06 (gone at 36 weeks ) and L 3.10.07.And another rainbow! Baby C has arrived 10.26.10!
