These last few days have been rough ones. On Tuesday I started having contractions ever 5-7 minutes so I called my doctor and we headed into the office to be monitored. They kept coming and started to get more painful so they sent me to Labor and Delivery to get a shot of Terbutaline. After only one shot they seemed to have calmed down. They checked me while I was there and I'm 1cm and 20%...no biggie, I could be at that for WEEKS. Well, that night I started to get more but they stopped after a few hours. Then later in the afternoon on Wed. they started up again. I called my doctor and she had me come in to be checked and make sure they weren't making me progress more. Thankfully I am still at 1cm and 20% so she gave me prescription for Procardia (which is supposed to stop them). I've been taking that since Wed. evening and it seems to be working. I'm hating these side effects though. I've got a constant headache and feel dizzy most the time. The baby is moving tons and keeps dropping. I don't think I can drop anymore! haha! So, I think this little guy may be a July baby but keep your fingers crossed that he decides to stay in for AT LEAST 2 more weeks. :) Anyways, I thought I would update.
