First of all, please excuse typos- am blogging from my iPhone.
Well, I've landed myself in the hospital.
After a week of more cramping, contractions and drugs, my cervix shortened. It was 2.1-3 cm which is still "not terrible" according to Dr. P, but we need to monitor me to figure out how to slow the contractions. So I am being monitored constantly and we've upped my Nifedipine and still using Terb as needed. I need to lay on my side all day but am allowed one shower and one wheelchair ride per day... thank goodness!
Best news of today: a negative fFN!!!! So that means despite the scary shortening and contracting, we are very reassured that I will NOT go into labor in the next two weeks! That gets us to about 27 weeks and we all know that 28 is our most important milestone.
The boys look awesome! Still no signs of TTTS, another huge blessing.
I am actually feeling pretty calm, like this is where we need to be. The hardest part was leaving A today. I kept kissing her face, smelling her head, and left while trying to hide my big tears. I cannot wait to see her later today! My awesome mom and hubby are making me feel very taken care of by filling the fridge and thinking of things I might like. Hubby is staying with me all day which helps ease the transition and my mom is bringing A up for dinner. I miss her so much already.
Thanks for all the encouragement. October or bust is still our mantra!
