day 🙁 After working all day, Eric came home to get me and drive me to the hospital for my second dose of the steroid shots needed to rapidly develop Junior’s lungs. The shot hurt a lot worse tonight than last night for some reason, but I know my short pain will be well worth it in the end. While hooked up to the fetal monitors before the shot, the nurse had us watch a video on pre-term labor. We both agreed that it was more scary than hopeful, but a realistic look at what we might be up against I guess. Might as well be as prepared as possible, and hopefully the preparation will all be for nothing!!!
The nurse tonight again stressed that the next four weeks are critical. I’m hoping that by being on complete bed rest, Junior will stay put and it will be week 28 in no time! Not that we’ll be in the “safe zone” at week 28 but certainly a milestone we would like to reach before we meet Junior!
Contractions came pretty consistently today, about 2-3 every hour… Despite the fact that I didn’t move from bed today, which I thought would maybe make them a little less 🙁
