Woohoo, today I am at 100 days so tomorrow I will be in double digits only. I know I am further down the due date list at the end of June so I am so exited to see that number on my ticker today.
I really hope baby cooks at least 80 more of those days but right now we are shooting for a first goal of 30 weeks and crossing all we can cross for 32 weeks or over. I hate the Procardia. It just makes me feel terrible and while I am "lucky" to be able to be at home resting during this yuck period, it is really awful. I keep scouring other boards and moms who say after a few days they got used to it but it has been a week and I still get flushed, massive headache and start sweating everywhere!!! I see the doctor again Tuesday and hoping he will lower dosage or maybe we can try something else. I just can't imagine taking this for months and feeling like this.
Yay for double digits! You made me realize that I'm already down to 95 left! I didn't even notice. Time flies. Sorry you're having a hard time getting baby to stay put. I know that has to be hard. I hope they can give you something better to help besides the procardia.
I know how hard it is to be placed on br., I had it with our second. Here is a little good news. I took the Procardia and it worked. I went into PT around 26 (and a couple day). I delivered a couple day prior to 38 week! The doc said there is no guarantee that it was the Procardia. All I know is that I had our child within a week of d/c of the Procardia. Hope you have a similar wonderful outcome.
Just another thought. Did you get an IV of Magnesium. It used to be used to stop PT. They found that calcium blockers work better (hence the Procardia). However, research has shown that if you deliver early the mag greatly decreases CP. Just something to talk with your doc. Here is a link http://www.rcog.org.uk/news/magnesiu...-preterm-birth I was at a lecture where this was discussed as well.
Thank you guys for all the sweet words and sharing your stories.
I did get off the Procardia on a scheduled dosage because the side effects were too much. So I am just supposed to take it if the contractions are out of control and see if that helps them stop before deciding to go to hospital.
I am almost 27 weeks so baby is still baking for me
