Bed Rest

It has happened.... COMPLETE bed rest. My cervix has gone from 3.5 to a 2. So they decided to put me on complete bed rest on either of my sides.... no back laying! This has been a huge challenge. My back hurts all the time when I am on my side and I love being on my back! I go see the doc Monday so I will talk to her about reclining.
More news and drama....
Friday, my doc called and asked me to get some testing done. They wanted to make sure I was not having contractions I was not feeling. Got to the hospital and once hooked up to some monitors we got the answer. The boys are doing so well. playing with one another, they couldn't even keep the heartbeats because they were moving so much... isn't that great!!!! BUT, I am indeed having contractions. I was having them pretty often actually and had to be monitored alittle longer. Dr. T decided that I needed some medicine to relax my uterus to see if the contractions would decrease. I took ventolin (asthma medicine) and about 30 minuyes later the contractions were gone. I finally got released and have to take this medicine every 6 hours and be on complete bed rest till other wise told. I am 25 weeks and 2 days today and really want to make it to 30 weeks, would LOVE to make it to 34 weeks.
Please be praying for the contractions to stop, for the boys to get fat and healthy enough to be delivered when needed and that I can handle bed rest!!!

Courtney, Hang in there girl. I'm sorry about the bed rest but so glad your doctors are keeping close tabs on you and it sounds like with the funneling going on, bedrest is the very best thing. I'll be praying for your pain and discomfort and also that those little guys stay put for a long long time! Please let me know if I can do anything for you!

Okay, crying. I am not scared, I just know you are and I love you and the boys so much...

So, that said....I am glad the doctor had the smarts to test you for the contractions. This is a very good thing to find since you were not feeling them.

5 more weeks boys! We want you to hang in there at least that long...
