Bed Rest ~ Day 28

      Comments Off on Bed Rest ~ Day 28

I guess I jinxed myself with that post yesterday.

Since yesterday morning I’ve been having 3 contractions an hour consistantly. Meaning I don’t have more than 3 an hour but I have 3/hour every hour. Some of them even woke me up last night.

So then today I was talking to one of Dr. D’s nurses about my Heparin (we had a heck of a time finding it for my refill) and I asked her about them. More out of curiosity than concern because I figured I wasn’t having 4-6/hour so I was okay. Well, she talked to Kelli, the nurse practioner, and they wanted me to come in. 

My mom met us at Dr. D’s office and picked up Elliott Richard. I went in and they weighed me (we won’t go there! lol) and all that good fun stuff. Then came time for the NST (non-stress test). I had 2 contractions about 15-20 minutes apart. But 
before the contractions were even registered Kelli talked to Dr. D and he said for me 
to go straight to L&D.

Of course, once in L&D I was still having contractions only they weren’t showing up on the monitor the way they were at Dr. D’s office. *sigh* They monitored us for a while and ran some tests. The big test being my fFN, which was negative. (Yay!) So that means we should have another 2 weeks before going into preterm labor.

I have a regular appointment with Dr. D in the morning and my medications are all kicking in so I’m going to get to bed now.

Thank you so much for the prayers and positive thoughts!
