Back home again. I was given a script for procardia that I can take every 6 hrs/as needed. I don't really like that it's a category C though so i don't think I'll take it. If my contractions happen, I'm gonna let them happen and just only go back into the hospital when I feel like I'm definitely in labor.
The hospital bag got packed pretty quickly since we decided we were gonna go in. I dont like some of the stuff he packed but I'll probably try to have DH switch some stuff out. he was pretty exhausted yesterday as he worked a 10 hr day and then went grocery shopping and then made a salad and some friends brought us dinner and ate with us.
Bed rest is boring but I know it keeps me from contracting as much. I've been seeing a lot of mucus each day and it was blood tinged yesterday and today... So I'm just waiting and seeing....
Wonder how long he'll stay in...
Here's hoping he hangs in a while longer. I'm sure bed rest is the most boring and frustrating thing ever but the longer he hangs around the better.
Thinking of you Maddie - i'm sure he'll come sooner then later, but try to bake him up a bit longer.....

My DECEMBER 2013 SNOWBUNNY is a GIRL!
My Dr appointment:
Went pretty well. I feel better after talking to my OB.. I was starting to not like her much at all but feel better now.
She said I don't have to take Procardia, she doesn't think it'll stop anything anyway and that its more for comfort and is totally fine with me not taking it.
My belly is measuring 30 weeks (I'm now 34) so I have an ultrasound scheduled for tomorrow morning to make sure baby is measuring okay and all of that.
Heart rate was 139
Bed Rest regulations: modified bed rest- I can get up to shower, make light meals, eat, do some walking around the house... but I need to be resting more than moving. But I'm allowed to do some light chores like folding laundry and such. Bed Rest will be until 37 weeks or until I go into labor. If I need to drive Riley to school (its a 20 min drive each way) I am allowed to do that but she would prefer if I stay home... Try to make arrangements was kinda the deal.
Labor will not be stopped from here on out.
She and I both think I probably won't go much longer but she also said you never know what will happen.
Weekly appointments so my next OB appt is going to be Wednesday next week.
