2 weeks? or 9 weeks?

I went into labor with Nolan for the first time at 32 1/2 weeks. I'm 30 1/2 weeks now. So, will I go into labor again in 2 weeks or will I make it to full-term?
No one knows. The drs are doing everything to get me to term, but with a history of 2 premature births my chances aren't good.

The stress is really starting to get to me (Cary will tell you - my emotions are everywhere!). I keep thinking about everything I need to do and I might only have 2 weeks left to do everything. Or I might have 9 weeks left. If I make it term, I'll have a scheduled c-section in week 39. The dr told me that at my last appointment. Then added that our first goal is to get me to 37 weeks or at least 35 weeks.

I told my drs I'm having 2-3 contractions a day. They were thrilled. How many people make their drs happy when they have contractions at 30 weeks? They were thrilled that I'm having only 2-3 contractions a day.

Nolan is still growing. He's quickly approaching his terrible twos. I'll try to post pictures of him. Cary got some good pictures of Nolan at the pool a couple of weeks ago. (I'm not allowed to go to the pool, so we got Nolan a baby pool. He plays in the pool and I sit next to the pool.)
