Morning spent in L&D - x posted

Well I had my NST at 9am this morning in L&D at the hospital I want to deliver in. My dr was oncall so was there this morning.

While on the machines I was contracting every 2-3 minutes and for approx 40 sec in length. Both boys looked good though. After my hour of monitoring the nurses unhooked me but when they checked with my dr she said not to let me go. She wanted the nurses to check me and make sure the contrax weren't doing anything, give me an IV of fluids and monitor me for another hour and then recheck me.

Well, I was a fingertip dialated before and after. The fluids did slow my contrax down some and made them less intense and less regular, so I was allowed to leave after another hour of monitoring.

The nurse I had was the same one I had when I had DD. She told me she hasn't had a set of twins on her shift in over 2 yrs (our hospital won't take any babies born before 36 weeks). I am bound and determined to make it until at least Friday. On Friday I will be 36 weeks. Now I just have to keep these contrax away for a few more days.

You are almost there! 36 weeks is within sight! It definitely looks like you will make it...you've only got another 3 days! Glad everything slowed down with the fluids.

Just a bit longer! You've done a great job so far keeping those boys in as long as possible. My good friend from work kept her twins till 38 or 39 weeks I think.
