Well ladies, this may be last time I post for awhile. I was admitted into the hospital yesterday, having horrible back pains. I was having contractions every 6 minutes, then went down to every 3 minutes, then anywhere from 2-5 minutes. I was one cm dialated and they said my cervix was very, very mushy.
My nurse came in and said "Well, we would like you deliver at 35-36 weeks if possible, but since you are uh...34 and 6/7ths that....*long pause* okay, hold on I'm going to go call your doctor."
The doctor said not to give me anything to stop it and to monitor me for 3 hours and NOT to give me another cervixal exam because that increased my contraction rate. I was so exhausted I couldn't even breathe through the contractions so they gave me sleeping pills. The pills almost stopped my contractions and now are only on in back, coming every 30 minutes, no biggie. But they say that within a week to 1 1/2 weeks he'll be here.
I'll try to update when I can. I'm just getting all the rest and pampering I can get my hands on before I go back into the hospital.
