I'm writing from the hospital tonight. On Friday, the 15th I started having contractions at home. I went the the doctor's office that afternoon, and they sent me to the hospital to be monitored because I was 1cm dialated. They gave me a shot to stop the contractions that didn't work, so they started an IV of magnesium sulfate. Oh wow, was that rough. I felt like my entire body was on fire...even my eyes. It was really rough going for a while. The had cold clothes wiping me down, a fan blowing on me - nothing seemed to relieve it. After a while it settled down a little, and now, Saturday night, they have lowered the dose and I am hoping to be home by Monday. They also gave me steroid shots yesterday and today (Saturday) in case the labor starts again and they are unable to stop it. Since I am 30 weeks, they would have to send me to another hospital to deliver, if I can make it to 32 weeks I'll be able to deliver here, which is really what I want to do. Please keep our girls in your thoughts and prayers.
