Ok Ladies everyone needs to have Lauren (the_elmel) in your thoughts and prayers.....
Today she went into her doctor's appointment and told them she had been having contractions - they checked her and she is dilated at 2CM and is 70% effaced. She started having contractions 2 minutes apart sometime around 3 this afternoon and they slowed down to 8 minutes apart around 6 this evening. They are monitoring her and have her on a magnesium sulfate drip. They are gving her steroids to progress lung development for Joshua. Please, please, please keep her in your thoughts...she is giving me updates when she can!!! I will make sure everyone is up to date with her condition....
Lauren just let me know that they can not stop her contractions....
They went ahead and measured Joshua to see how much he weighs, he is at 3 pounds 6 OZ and she is still in labor! The doctors are giving her a 50/50 chance he could come soon!!!! I have not heard from her since 9:20 this evening, so I am hoping she is fine!!!
I just heard from Lauren at 11:30 this morning and she has progressed into her labor - she is now dilated to 4 CM - looks like we might be having our first baby soon!!! I am getting her hospital info as well, so if anyone wants to send flowers or anything!!!! Her contractions are back, but she did not tell me how far apart!!! She will be in the hospital a very long time and her doctors dont know if she can hold out.... PLEASE KEEP HER AND JOSHUA IN YOUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS!!!!
UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE
Lauren might be able to have internet access soon - she just made me aware of this a few minutes ago (she misses us wayyyy too much - plus she needs her post count up - LOL) just a little joke to lighten everything up!! She feels miserable right now - I am not sure if it is the pain or the fear, maybe a mixture of both!!!
If you have AIM or MSN - let me know your screen name - I will be online if anyone wants to chat!!![/b]
