It is called Baptist Hospital!
That being said, it is pretty obvious today's appointment did not go as well as we had hoped. Over the weekend, my contractions seemed to pick up a bit, requiring me to take extra doses of terbutaline. I was a little concerned that things would have changed for the worse, and it did! My cervix changed quite a bit in a weeks time. The longest measurement we got today was .8cm/8 mm. Not soo good. I left the ultrasound on the verge of tears, concerned with what would happen next. Too be honest, I was more scared that I would be sent home rather than be admitted. My nerves could not take going home after what I had seen. While waiting to see Dr. B, I had a hard time holding back the tears. "I didn't pet Nugget and Olive before we left." Blake looked at me like I was crazy. I was.
After seeing Dr. B, it was decided that I would be admitted for monitoring. I would start terbutaline, orally, every 4 hours and resume Indocin every 6 hours for the next 72 hours. They would hook me up to monitors to watch my contraction activity and baby boys heart rate. So, off we go to the main hospital.
For now, my contractions are being managed managed. Things are a lot quieter than when I arrived. I would write more but I keep losing my Internet connection and have lost what I have written too many times to count now! So...I will update tomorrow.
We just ask for prayers tonight. 1) That the contractions will remain under control. 2) For our peace of mind 3) Strength for this little guy!
