Ian and I are both pretty shocked and scared. They were able to get one round of steroid shots last night.
I woke up yesterday morning and was feeling a lot of pressure and cramping. My midwife had me drink a bunch of water and that didn't help so they sent me to triage to be monitored. I wasn't dialted at all, they didn't pick up a single contraction, and they did a fetal fibronectin test that came back negative so I went home with instructions to rest.
About 3 hours later, I knew I was having contractions but we thought it was because baby A was way down in my pelvis bone. Around 7pm, we got sent back to triage and I was dialated to 2cm. After a ridiclous amount of meds to slow the contractions, things started to look good. My midwife checked me before she left this morning and I was still 2cm and 90% effaced. Throughout the day, the contractions started to pick back up and by noon, they were almost unbearable. My midwife came back to the hospital and I was dialted to a 4, despite the meds. I got prepped for the c/s (they didn't want to do a vaginal birth and risk extra pressure on their heads (something about brain bleeds).
I was only 25 weeks and 4 days. Never in a million years did I think I would have one pound babies. Please keep them in your thoughts. Right now, they're taking it day by day.
