Hey ladies, I'm still here, though I haven't been around in a few days. Memorial Day weekend was very busy for us, and then on Wednesday (at 34 weeks) I started going into labor. So I spent the day Thursday at the hospital while they tried to stop my labor.

Now, I'm home on bedrest and dosed up on Terbutaline to keep the contractions from starting up again. I'm 2-3 cm dilated and 20% effaced, and they're hoping to keep me there for another week or so, if possible. We can't hold off labor forever, but the longer the better, as you know. So there will be a new baby on here soon...hopefully not until like June 8, though, if we can hold on that long. This child is just impatient!

Just wanted to let you girls know I'm still around...hope you're all doing well!

I noticed the other day that you were missing and I thought about maybe you had gone into labor! I'm glad they were able to get your labor stopped. I don't know anything about Terbutaline or how long it can hold off labor, but I hope your little stays in there for a while longer. June 8...is that when you'll be at term? I hope you make it to then!

No, I'll be 35.5 weeks...my midwife thinks that might be the best we can hope for at this point.
