Amy: I am on bed rest. I have to go upstairs because the shower is up there. And after not being able to shower for 2 1/2 days I feel like I need a shower! I'm so glad Bryce is still baking too. But it feels like he's trying to come out. The pressure is getting really bad like his head is just in the right spot. I Google the diarrhea thing and it says it's a sign of early labor. I'm definitely asking my Dr tomorrow. They gave me pre - term labor meds, the magnesium drip and something for pain cause the contractions were really bad and so close together. They had to put me on oxygen too cause the pain med put me in a deep sleep.

Amy: I would be happy if he lasted to 35 weeks. They did give me the celestone shots to help develop his lungs because the dr was so sure I was being transported to a different hospital to have him. The pressure is horrible! It makes the back pain worse and makes me feel like I never leave the toilet cause it always make me feel like I have a full bladder.i will let you know what the dr says tomorrow! I'm so nervous and scared of what she will tell us.

Alix- Sorry to hear that you're fighting to keep him in there longer. Diarrhea and back pain can be signs of preterm labor. The diarrhea could also maybe be from the mag, too. If you are conracting frequently or having new symptoms I'd error on the side of caution. Most doctors have an answering service that you can call their office after hours and they will have the doc on call call you back if you're on the fence about going to the hospital. Glad you got both doses of the betamethasone for his lungs. Like Chrisitine said be careful to stay hydrated especially with the diarrhea. Sending you prayers that he'll stay put longer. Come on 37 weeks!

Alix i hope you can keep him in longer. With my twins i had ptl and was hospitalized for 6 days and went home on procardia. My contractions never stopped, but they stoped doing anything to my cervix. It wasn't until I was told to stop the med that my contractions stopped completely which is why I was induced with them.
AFM I went to the doctor yesterday morning because my throat hurt so much. Well i have strep throat. Then last night I started having very bad crqmps and went to yhe bathroom and af stqrted. so yesterday morning i started out with cd 54 and ended the day on cd 1.
Only 10 more days and we will be able to bring Ty back home.
