Still here. Still pregnant!!
I was released from the hospital on Monday and things are still about the same as far as dilation. Yesterday was pretty rough day. I was having a really hard time getting my breath and in a lot of pain, but I pushed through it last night and thank goodness I did because I feel 100% better today. Had my OB appointment and we just went over things to be on the look out for. He said 20% of woman will have their babies within days of preterm labor and I have passed that mark. He seems to think we might be able to keep these little ladies in until 32 weeks. As much pain as I have been in lately and feeling really bad, I want to keep them in as long as possible. I remind myself that it is only a short time of things being unpleasant and it will all be worth it very soon. And of course I want to do the best thing for the girls. We have switched me over from Lovenox to Heparin. Also trying to figure out the right dosage of Glyburide ( it seems to be bottoming out my sugar levels) I am sure we will find that magical number soon though.
Today we are meeting with the Director of NICU and having a tour. Also got some pretty exciting news yesterday. Not sure if any of you saw where I posted that my hospital was going to put cameras in the NICU so parents could log in and see the babies if they weren't at the hospital. Well it looks like Al and I are going to be the first parents to try this out. They prefer to use an employee to try everything out on before going forward. I am pretty stoked about it. I will be able to see the girls no matter where we are.
I am back to work. Thank goodness. I talked my doctor into letting me work because my job is only 10 minutes from the hospital and my house is over 30 minutes away. My bosses are being completely amazing and so giving. They told me to lay down on my couch whenever I need to.
Let me also brag on my husband. I know I could not go through all of this without him. My god how I got so lucky, I will never know. I promise I don't take advantage of him. During my stay in the hospital he was taking Cierra back and forth to work, taking care of pets and the house, plus seeing me. He is now doing all the cooking, cleaning, driving, etc. I know he is going to be the most amazing father ever. I can't wait to see him meet his girls. I love this man so much. I never knew that marriage was seriously suppose to be like this. I always thought it was so much work to have an "ok" marriage. Now I know that in my marriage, I don't have to work at things, I found my soul mate and it all just comes the way it is suppose to. I will say again I am so LUCKY.
Okay here is my 29 week bump pic and lets hope there is a 30 week!
