It feels wonderful to finally be posting a positive update! I''ve been home from the hospital almost a week now and as of today I made it to 28 weeks! 2 weeks ago I never thought I would!
I think the day or two they gave me the super-doses of the contraction meds gave my uterus the break it needed to start calming down. I haven''t had a single string of contractions in 3 days! I get one here and there but no more constant ones. Starting today, I''m spreading out my doses more and I''m now allowed to sit up and to be on my feet for short periods of time. I go in on Friday to get my cervical length checked again and if all is well I can switch to only taking the meds when I start to get a lot of irritability and contractions! I really hope that this will last and that I''m cured! Let''s hope my uterus behaves itself now.
I''m so lucky to have Josh and Dobby through all this. Besides taking over the house for me despite all his overtime at work, Josh is the sweetest guy in the whole world. He takes such good care of me and never seems to get tired of it. He''s constantly bringing me things to eat and drink and he gives the best footrubs ever. He definately kept up our wedding vows of "in sickness and in health!" And Dobby spends his whole day curled up beside me cuddling with me. I''ve got two great guys already and a 3rd on the way!
Please keep us in your prayers- we can see how much prayer is working for us and we''re so thrilled that things are looking like they''re going to be ok. Have a Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
