Hospital Admission

Thought I would send out a mass email instead of trying to answer all the Q's on facebook and what not...

I woke up this AM and had some bleeding, so I called and was told to come in. When we got here I was having contractions every 2-3 mins. They took a urine sample to see if maybe I had a bladder infection causing the contractions...it was negative....then I was checked for dilation...and I am 2.5 CM dilated.
I was given a series of shots to try and stop the contractions...that did not happen....

So I was admitted to the hospital....and they started a magnesium drip....the contractions have stopped for now, I have no dilated anymore.

If nothing happens tonight(no dilation or contractions) they will wean me off the magnesium tomorrow and start me on a oral med to keep the contractions from coming back....I will be monitred on this pill as well for 24 hours....if it keeps the contractions away I will be allowed to go home on Thursday. If they do not work, I have to go back on magnesium which means I have to stay in the hospital. If I am able to go home I am being put on bedrest so I can get to at least 36 weeks.

Ultrasound today showed baby was very very low. He is 5lbs 3 ounces right now and has had a great heartbeat through out it all. Im listening to him on the monitor now, he has the hiccups! ;) He is head down. DOctor said she could feel his head when she checked me.

So Im still on the mag drip, I have gotten the steriod shot to help mature his lungs if something should happen and I deliver early....

Anyways, thats the update from here...I will let you know when I know more.
