We have made it to 30 weeks with these little boys. A lot has been going on. I was in the hospital for about 5 days on magnesium sulfate then discharged with a breathine pump. Then went back to the hospital that night with more contractions and about 2a.m. we got to go home and have been home since. What is a breathine pump???? Well, it is an IV in my leg that continually gives me medicine. Does it work???? Well, sometimes! The catch is that I also have a home monitoring system that I use twice a day to see how many contractions I am having and then it gets sent off and I get a phone call from a home health care system and they tell me if I failed or passed. I pass if I have less than 8 contractions an hour.... that happens some but sometimes I fail and i have to get an extra dose of medicine and do the monitoring again. I love being home but not knowing if they will call and tell me to go to the hospital is always a worry of mine. I am so ready for these boys to be born. I am sore, tired, BIG, frustrated.... I know they need to stay in as long as possible and I will not do anything to endanger that but I AM READY!!!!!
I have doc appointments this coming Wednesday so hopefully they will go well!!!!
