This afternoon I started to have contractions about 4 min apart. I spent about 4 hours up in labor and delivery. They finally got them stopped with procardia, and they sent me home. My cervix is long and closed, so that is good. I have to call my doctor tomorrow to get a follow up with them, and I am taking the procardia four times a day now. I am supposed to take it easy for the next few weeks, and go back in if I start having more contractions. It was really hard having to go up there alone since I haven't lined up a sitter for my kids yet. I thought I had more time to figure that out. I guess I was wrong. My dh wanted to go with me, but I knew it would be hard on him to sit up there with three kids around dinner time. I am just going to hang out in bed for the rest of the evening and keep my fingers crossed that this little girl stays in for at least 14 more weeks.
Well things have been fine since I got home. Dh fed me and put me to bed last night. Today I still have to take the kids to school and stuff, but I am not going to do much of anything else. Dh is getting out of work early, so he should be able to get my dd from school this afternoon. I called my Ob office, and I will see them after I get my progesterone shot on Tuesday. That will give me time to see how this medicine works, and to make sure that I don't have any issues with it. I was on it with my last pregnancy, and it worked really well that time. My dh made it very clear that I am not going to be doing anything this weekend, so I guess I will have a lot of time to crochet up some cute baby clothes.
