Sunday, December 11

December 11 already?  Sorry for the delay in blogging.  As you can imagine, things have been quite busy around here with the scurry to get ready for two little boys.  But, everything came to an abrupt halt last night.

I've been having contractions for days (well weeks really, but consistently for days).  Nothing painful, just uncomfortable and annoying.  Yesterday they got more intense and after a few hours of painful contractions and pressure, we decided to go to the hospital.  I knew full well they would send me home, but I didn't want to risk anything with this pregnancy.  Twins are just too touchy.

After a few hours of monitoring and getting fluids through an IV, they determined that my hemoglobin was dangerously low, my blood pressure was high and the contractions I was experiencing were real.  Thankfully, they were able to stop the contractions, get my blood pressure to a normal level and sent me home...on strict bed rest.  Ouch!

Bed rest and Type A - OCD don't mix.  However, I promised my husband I've obey doctor's orders and lay low.  I see the doc tomorrow to determine next steps.  I'm a hair shy of 36 weeks and so thankful I've made it this far.  More to come...
