I'm at the hospital.
I was having some contractions and cramping, so I called my doctor. They don't want me to contract for too long with the cerclage in, so they told me to go to the hospital for observation. After I checked in, the contractions started to pick up. So, I got 2 shots of drugs to stop the contractions. The contractions stopped - for a few hours. They are more space out now. I'm having about 2 an hour. The main goal right now is to get some steriods in me to speed up the development of monster's lungs. I got the 1st round at 5 pm today. I will get round 2 at 5 pm tomorrow. If all goes well, 24 hours after round 2 they will let me go home on bed rest.
The OB and the perinat stopped by today. They both said having the baby at 33ish weeks isn't bad. He should have some fat on him by now, he should be maintaining his own body temp., he should be breathing. Basically, he will go to the NICU to perfect everything. Of course, the longer he stays in my belly, the better.
Monster is still breech. My cervix is still measuring long.
I can get up and go to the bathroom, I can eat whatever I want, and I can sit up in bed. This is much better then last time! And the hospital has wireless internet! I can play all day in blogland!!
The hospital was full when I got here - I took the last room. I'm in a tiny room. I'm waiting to get moved to a larger room in the high risk wing. High risk is nice. The rooms are HUGE - they have a little table with 2 chairs, microwave, fridge, a big TV, and a VCR! They spoil you there. But, I'd rather be home...
Anyone know how to turn the lights off? It's bedtime.
