In hospital :(

Well tuesday morning I woke up bright and early to contractions that were 2-5 minute apart, so I had Dave take me to L&D.After getting checked out they made an attempt to stop contraction with terbutaline shots, that helped for about 10 min and then the contractions came back.Dr. Luna decided to admit me for closer monitoring and after a full day and partial night of contracting we have figured out a that 5mg terbutaline and 20mg procardia an hour later keeps them under control.Now I just have to stay stable through the night and will get released in the morning.On a bright note if I go into labor again after this coming tuesday they will just let me go as Caitlyn should be perfectly fine and will likely not need NICU time. So that's the latest baby update.

Good luck! Hopefully she behaves(actually I guess hopefully your body behaves) for just a little while longer!!!

I hope you are already home and doing better. Keep us posted!

I am so glad that the medicine seems to be working - when Eric told me you had gone to the hospital I was worried!!

Hopefully that baby girl can stay inside and cook a little longer for you! Let me know if there's anything I can do!
