Well, things don't always seem to go as planned, no matter how much I fight for them to! I was 33 weeks and 6 days pregant yesterday and started having some pretty decent contractions and had a Dr appt scheduled anyway, so went in for that around lunch. The first bad news came before I even saw the doctor...high blood pressure and protein in my urine (which shouldn't be there). Then came the ultrasound...baby A (the girl) has decided to flip around and be breech. That means they get to come out via c-section....my worst nightmare....so, I had a bit of a freak out in the Dr office, but have come to terms with it and realize that I just have to deal with it. So, from the Dr office, I headed to the hospital for labs and monitoring... and here I sit a day later on mag sulfate (for the BP), bedrest for the most part, and after no food all day yesterday I did get to have some oatmeal and coffee this morning. I've had the pleasure of a shot to hopefully stop contractions (which burns, and didn't work), and then the first of the steroid shots (which do more than burn...ouch) that will help the babies' lung mature. I'll get another this afternoon and then the plan is that 24 hours after that they will do the c-section to deliver.
So....that's my plan for the next two days....not at all what I thought I would be doing...but then when is it ever?? My parents have come up to stay with the boys, so I know they are in good hands, so that's one less thing to worry about! I know that I need to be here and getting the meds for all of us to be as healthy and safe as possible, but it does suck...no other way around that. Good news is that the parents are on the way and should be here by tonight and hopefully the plan continues and they will be here when the babies' arrive. So, all is good, but I would ask for prayers for a c-section which is honestly terrifying for me, and that the babies are as healthy as can be. I know we are all in good hands, and feel very safe being here where we need to be. And, prayers for the parents for safe travels as they are on their way over right now.
