Episode 3 Preterm Labor

Jun 10, 2010 - 3 comments

I was actually feeling contractions yesterday.  I timed them myself and went in to labor and delivery.  They were every 2-3 minutes apart.  My doc was on call she had just checked me the day prior I was still dialated to a 1.  So, she just gave me the magic shot and they stopped just like before.  She was happy I caught them so quick.  Asked her if my medication I am on is not working?  She said it does most of the time, but my body just has break throughs because meds fight the contractions every day.  She was really questioning me, asked me if I was breaking the rules but I haven't at all.  I do not want to have an early baby and nothing would make me risk it.  Most I do is get something quick to eat, shower, get dressed and go to my appointments.  I don't know what else I can do.  This is going to be a long three weeks.

Oh jeeze! That little boy is definitely not cooperating with your medicine! I think that you will make it the next 3 weeks but I don't know how long it will be after that.... Poor guy is making his mommy look bad! I really hope that he cooperates!

I wonder how many more times this will happen?  So far it has happend about weekly.  If I can just keep catching it I know it will be OK. I will just have to go in even if I think it's nothing.  I don't care if they get sick of me.  I am lucky it is only a few miles from my house.
LOL he is making me look so bad like I am cheating on bedrest.  Doctor kept asking if I had sex... finally I just told her I wish since I have contractions anyway...this pelvic rest has been awful, my husband has been supportive he will barely hug  I would never bring this upon myself it's way to scary and would be so harmful to the baby if he is born now.

Oh heather-  Sorry that little boy keeps trying to come early.  You will make it the next few weeks!  Good thing you have been catching it early!
