Heard the "d" word..........

Just got checked and we are dilated. Sitting at the hospital for my fetal testing apt. I guess all those cramps last week did some work on my body. More than likely getting the beta shots today... Yay me....

Good thing I brought my iPad and phone charger... Now all I need is my iPad charger....

Contractions were 2-3 mins and slowed to 5-6 . I'm 2 cm dilated. Started procardia, so hopefully that will do the trick

I had to check back in to see how you were doing. Hopefully the procardia is working!!! WORK WORK WORK! With my last pregnancy, my water broke at 31 weeks and I was hospitalized for 3 weeks while they kept me pregnant so I feel for you! Keeping my fingers crossed that the procardia keeps the labor at bay and they'll let you go home!

7 cm yikes! I went through the whole steroids/mag sulfate too with DD (at 33 and 35 weeks) but I got lucky and didn't progress past 2-3 cm until I delivered at 36 weeks.

It's got to be tough being stuck in the hospital, but I hope baby can keep baking for as long as possible! Thinking of you!
