Day 3

Well I should have knocked on wood yesterday when I mentioned how bored I was. It turned eventful last night. First of all I was confused on exactly what status my cervix was in. Turns out I was 100% effaced and dilated to 1 cm. For some reason I had it in my mind that I did indeed have cervix left, but no such luck. My back starting hurting around noon yesterday so they kept an eye on things. I am doing the monitoring for girls and contractions twice a day. There were no contractions on my afternoon monitoring. Around 7 after my shower my back was still hurting and I started cramping so they decided to hook me up again. To my surprise I was having pretty good contractions at 2 minutes apart. They called the doctor to do a check on me. I am at 1 1/2- 2cm and she was able to feel the sacs. After a few hours of IV meds they slowed down and eventually stopped. I won't lie I was really freaked out and scared.. Even though the doctors keep telling me that the girls will be just fine at 28w4d, it doesn't make me feel better. I don't want them here this early. I am going to do everything and anything to keep them in until at least 30 weeks. I am cramping this morning though. Waiting on my team of doctors to come in and see me. Not sure how this day will play out, but lets hope it is BORING!!

Thanks again for all your support and please feel free to share your stories of pre-term labor or stories of friends that are in my situation. I am not sure if the 100% effacement makes a difference on how long I can keep these ladies in. Doctors seem to think a week on the longer side.


  1. you know how my story of pre-term labor ended and I don't think it's helpful for you to rehash it here. But I want you to know I am thinking about you every day and sending lots of good thoughts towards you and your girls.

  2. Thinking about you and hoping for 30 weeks. Stay put little ones!

  3. Wow, I am so sorry you're having to go through this. Thinking of you and the girls. Stay in just a little longer, ladies! XO
