Hi ladies - wow, sounds like everyone is really progressing along -good job!

Reagan - oh my!  keep us potsed and good luck to you!!

As for me, I hit 29 weeks on Sunday (6 weeks hospital BR).  It has been a tough week for us.  My contractions increased Sunday night and my terb pump bolises weren't helping.  They sent me to L&D for 48 hrs for magnesium sulfate and now I'm back in my antepartum room.  Terb pump is now controlling my contractions again.   I'm just happy baby is still in there cooking.   Oh, and through it all my cervix length maintained!!

We passed my 1st baby's gest age today!!  29/4 days.

My dr appointment went well..met a new dr at the hospital since my file is being transferred to a high risk specialist. I had an ultrasound done & my cervical length measured between 1.1-1.3 cms so no real changes. However there is funneling now & it concerned me. The drs aren't concerned since nothing changed but they are concerned about baby's growth. Seems he has slowed down a little bit & in turn had a TORCH test done which is a blood test to look for infectious diseases I may have contracted from my kids since they're young. Other than that I'm on bed rest still but am off blood thinners & allowed small walks within my home ie bathroom breaks..

I'm not sure if it was a good visit or not but I'm still continuing my bed rest at home :)

Good luck aylw88!  Keep thinking happy thoughts.  I'll send some your way.  If the doctor's aren't too concerned, follow their lead.

Lanespoli,

Hi, I'm 26 weeks along :)

Reaganh3,

Thanks! I'm trying to stay positive, I definitely need to get to bare minimum 28 weeks. I'm convinced I can go full term though!

Update:  I had contractions yesterday evening and all night, but then this morning they stopped.  So we are just waiting.  I have no idea what to expect now - if they will start up again soon, or if it will be days from now.
