Week 32

Well, week 31 ended with a bang. A taste of real labor that is... :(

We went in to the Dr.'s on Wed. evening for a routine check that revealed that I was dilated to 2 so from there we were sent to the hospital to receive another round of steroids for the babies' lungs. The plan was to get the shots and go home but before they could start anything I started contracting 5 min. apart with back labor and the worst pain I've ever felt. That led them to start a medicine called Magnesium Sulfate to stop labor. This is a pretty intense med and while it did work it was a long hour or so of labor before things started to subside. The babies got their steroid shots which will greatly help them in case of an early delivery and they have been monitoring me since then to make sure I don't start to go into labor again. Last night they took me off the magnesium and are now trying to see if a single oral med is enough to keep labor from starting. We are still praying for that 35 week mark to be here before the babies come but we are in the right place if we don't get that far. I am ok with staying in the hospital if that's what it takes to get us there. Friends and family have been keeping us company and taking great care of us too; Jared and I are so thankful for them! So for now we will wait and see what happens. I will keep this updated as much as I can. Thank you for the prayers and support, we are so thankful!!

Blessings,
