Another trip to L&D

I was having contractions this morning and called my doctor to let her know. After hearing about my trip yesterday, she told me to go straight to L&D. I'm still dilated 1cm and 70% effaced and -1 station. My doctor said that she can even feel her head when she was checking me!!! :eek: BTW, those checks really are starting to be quite uncomfortable. I am on strict bedrest for the next 3 weeks which I am so depressed about. Sad I can't even drive!! They also gave me a steroid injection which hurt like SOB and prescribed me Procardia to stop the contractions. If I don't have her in the next 3 weeks, then I can come off bedrest and go back to work. I just can't believe how close I am gettiing!!

I'm glad you were able to come home. Hoping Sophia stays put & all the meds work like they are supposed to. Try to enjoy resting as much as you can... soon we will all be praying for rest when all the LOs come. Smile

Thank you everybody! It's depressing being on bedrest, but I know it is for the best. I have always felt so bad for women who have to be on bedrest and now look at me! Go figure! It kind of makes me feel like a failure in a way especially since this is my 2nd complicated pregnancy. My body just does not like being pregnant at the end, I guess, or I just have very impatient children. I'm trying to be positive though and try my best to not get addicted to online shopping the next 3 weeks. Smile

That is so funny that you say that because when the nurse was going over my bedrest instructions, she said the same thing! I feel bad for DH having to do both our chores though. Plus DS starts Kindergarten on Monday so he is really going to have his hands full. I already have been jokingly calling him "Mr. Mom!" I don't think he likes that so much. LOL!
