I'm so glad you are getting help lined up! That will be a big relief for you and I bet it will be a great distraction for Jordan. I wish I could do something to help! I hope the combo of the medicine/ bed rest help you get through the next few weeks!

Kayla- I'm glad you have people stepping up to help. Bed rest is tough and really, it's painful to lay in bed for days on end. But every 1 day in utero is 3 less days in NICU. I know we've talked about it, but I think when I was there with Andrew, it would have helped me to hear it over and over again. It gets even more difficult with a LO around. Just remember you'll be a better Mommy to Jordan and Nora if Nora has a reduced NICU stay. When I was there, Ava was my first concern. In hindsight that was a mistake. She would have been fine. And it left me with a lot of what-if's had I done things differently that day I went in to the hospital.
I'm glad you found my info helpful. I know as a medical professional and as a NICU parent, that they don't really give you the info you need. And, it's hard to know the right questions to ask when you have no idea what you're in for. For what it's worth, G's cousin (the one who had the twins) her first daughter was born at 35 weeks and 1 day, she had NO NICU stay. My friends twins were born at 34 and 6. They were in NICU for 17 days.
You're so close! I bet once (if) you get to 36 weeks, they'll put you on modified bedrest until she comes, and stop the procardia.
I wish I lived closer to help you guys out. You are in my thoughts, and I pray for your and Nora's health and Jason's strength.
