Going Back to the Hospital :(

Well, we had our dr's appointment today to check on things from our contraction issue last week. The medicine seems to be working as far as the contractions go. Of course, we had an internal exam and as much as I was hoping and praying for 1cm, that is not what she found. We are now 2cm and 50% effaced. Um....what?? So, since the bed rest isn't "working" and things are moving along without me knowing (therefore I couldn't call the dr and say hey this is going on), they want me to be monitored closely in the hospital. She's really hoping we can make it to 32 weeks before delivery. Um...what? These babies better stay inside for at least another 5-6 weeks if not longer!!! We hit 29 tomorrow and we're really praying for 34. I know with twins we're going to deliver early, I was just not expecting too early. I've been reading about preterm labor and all the risks/complications the babies can face by coming too early. I'm praying so hard they do not have to experience that. As much as I don't want to be in the hospital for weeks, I can handle that because that's what I have to do for them. I'll finish the nursery later. I'll organize later. I just need my cervix to cooperate!

Oh man that sucks, hospital bed rest, yuck!! Ok so did you ever tell us why you have 2 tickers, or why they are different?

Ugh, I'm sorry. I guess if something were to happen, you'll be at the right place. Stay in babies!!
