concerned scaired worried doesnt even describe my emotional rollercoaster.

Today I m 32+1  at 31+6 I went into pre term labor. I received steroid shots 24 hours apart from each other to mature the lungs.  Also.I was put on a magnesium drip for 12 hours. It only slowed my contractions. Then they put me on indisen(spelling?) Which I get every 6 hours.it stopped my contractions from 930pm last night to 245pm this evening I'm terrified!
