31 weeks, irritable uterus
« on: November 22, 2016 at 11:40 AM »
Hello all,

I have recently been placed on modified bed rest following a 2 day hospital stay due to unexplained preterm contractions. My cervix is 85% thinned out and slightly shortened. I was put on magnesium sulfate during the hospital stay and am now taking Procardia every 6 hours to try to keep my little guy in there. I am due January 21 with a boy but we are just hoping he will stay in for another 4 to 6 weeks! I have done a good job keeping myself entertained so far but it hasn't been very long! Right now I am just happy to be at home and not in the hospital! Trying to keep a positive attitude and not focus on the things I can't do (like Thanksgiving festivities and wedding dress shopping with my little sister!) This year for Thanksgiving, I am super thankful for FaceTime!!!

Hello, Andrasme!

Welcome and congrats on your little one! It it strange to be unable to do so many things. I missed flying to see my sister's first little baby...like you said, thankful for technology that can connect us. :) Hang in there. You're so close to the end. A month, week by week, can go by more quickly than you'd think! :)

Hi, Andrasme! I'm so glad you joined our group. How has the past week been? Any contractions? Hopefully no more trips back to the hospital!

Positive thoughts coming your way!
