Just wanted to do an update. I made it through the two shots of steroids to help my girl's lungs develop better and I also made it through the hell that is Magnesium. If anyone has ever had to have that stuff ivy'd into you, I am so sorry for what you must have experienced. If you haven't, I sure hope you never do.
Yesterday I reached 34 weeks and they are not doing anything further to prevent her from coming. They aren't accelerating it either, I'm at home on strict bed rest, but if she comes, she comes. The hospital fully expects to see me any time now. I left having regular contractions and just lots of pelvic pressure, but no "active labor" and my water is still intact.
I feel better being at home, although I'm not the sit still type, so this has been kinda hard for me, but I'm doing fine. Anything for her. All of this is worth it to have my healthy baby girl, I just hope it turns out as good as it plays out in my head.
Right now my personal goal is to make it until Friday, at the minimum, when my OB will be back. I hope he's able to be the one to deliver her and just seeing him and getting his input will help me. It's hard dealing with on-call doctors, I felt like no one really cared. They had their own patients, and then there was me, and no one wanted to deal with it.
My husband's job is awesome and is letting him work from home the rest of the week, so he's here with me and checks up on me and gets me anything I need. I really appreciate all of your love, thoughts, and prayers during this time.
