Need lots of prayers for my twins!!!

I went for my 28 week check up on Friday and I was 1-1.5 cm dilated and my cervix is soft.  My Dr. sent me to L&D to be monitored.  I was having contractions....I could not feel them so that was a big part of the problem.  I was given the steroid shots to help the babies develop a bit quicker.  After much medication....of which I thought I would have to be rushed to the cardiac unit due to my heart jumping out of my chest, I was able to leave Sunday afternoon to attend my first shower if I promised to lay down...."Hey thanks for coming...sorry I am taking up the entire couch!"
I am on complete bedrest...I am to lay on my side which is very hard for me.  It is so painful...always has been.  I swear I think my hips are deformed!  I have never been able to sleep on my side.  BUT, I will do anything to keep these two monkeys from making an early debut.  
My appt. today showed no change.  My cervix length is 3cm.....  I go back next week and will be hooked up to the monitor to see if I am having more contractions.
I am so afraid of going into full labor way too soon......

I am praying you hear good news next week.  I am so sorry about the early labor, but I did have a friend that went into labor early too and they put her on bed rest and she was able to hold her little girl in until 38 weeks (not twins though).  I know what you mean too about not being able to lay on your side and I am sure it has not felt any better not that you are preggnant with twins.  Good luck and prayers!

I will be praying for you and the little ones. Try and think positive as getting stressed wont help and do as the doctors tell you.I know it is hard but you are strong enough to do this.

Gosh....you need about 4 wks more to not make it as "scary".  I agree its worth the bed rest to get them here healthy and in the "oven" a bit longer!  It does suck sleeping on your side....i dont sleep much because of it hurting.  But I wish you the best and will keep you and the babies in my prayers!

Oh I will say a prayer for you three too!

I'm so sorry you are on bedrest!

I know what you mean about the laying on your side. I have a hard time too! It feels very unnatural and uncomfortable!

Good luck!
