After being here for monitoring last night, they sent me home and told me to rest until my ultrasound at 2:45 today. Unfortunately the u/s showed a shortened cervix (I don't know how much) and the contractions haven't let up, so I'm back in L&D for monitoring. I'm trying not to worry.

On the plus side, baby seems to be doing great and is measuring big (nearly 30 weeks instead of the 28 based on my due date). She's 3.5 lbs and very active.

Here's hoping I just have a boring few hours and don't wind up on bed rest...

UPDATE 10:02pm: well, things are not so good. My cervix is 2cm long and I'm 2.5cm dilated. They're giving me 50/50 odds of delivering in the next 48 hours. I'm on a drug whose name I forget to slow contractions and they're giving me antibiotics and steroids. The good news is that I haven't changed in the last 2 hours (no more dilated than before) but I'm at the hospital for 48 hours now no matter what.

UPDATE 2 - 2/22/12 6pm: the good news: still no baby! I've been moved out of L&D and into antepartum, which I guess means they think I'm more stable. Still on IVs and nifedipine every 4 hours.

UPDATE 3 - 2/23/12 10am: Things are really stabilizing but I get the impression that I'm not going anywhere for a while. I'm officially on the "day by day" plan -- every time I ask the docs if there's a chance of my going home prior to delivery, they get all, "well, we ---OH LOOK SHINY THING". So I think for now I assume I'm on hospital bed rest until baby gets here, whether that's tomorrow (unlikely) or sometime in the next 10 weeks. On the plus side, the contractions are really stabilizing and I'm only really getting them when I move around. When I was admitted, they were every 90 seconds even when lying down. I'm going to stop updating this thread as I don't have much of interest to say ("today i'm going to try to take a shower! and then I'll have some more meds! and maybe call room service!") and will start a new thread if anything major develops. Thanks for all of your prayers and thoughts.

Praying that the labor stops and your baby keeps baking a little while longer. We are thinking about you and hoping everything will be okay.
