10 HOURS LATER WE ARE HOME!!!


WELL, WE HAD A REGULAR VISIT TODAY THAT ENDED UP BEING AN ALL DAY EXPERIENCE DOWN IN LABOR AND DELIVERY. IT STARTED OFF GOOD WITH JUST THE REGULAR VITAL SIGN CHECK AND WEIGH IN, WHICH WENT BETTER THAN I EXPECTED! I ONLY GAINED A POUND,BUT FELT LIKE I GAINED WAAAAY MORE THAN THAT. NEXT WE MET WITH ONE OF THE OTHER DOCTORS THAT IS IN OUR GROUP BECAUSE WE STARTED ROTATING THIS WEEK TO MEET ALL THE DOCTORS IN THE GROUP JUST IN CASE OUR DOCTOR HAPPENED TO BE OUT OF TOWN OR SOMETHING WHEN THE BABY DECIDED TO COME! I HAVE BEEN FEELING LIKE SOMETHING WAS NOT RIGHT OR THAT THE BABY WAS NOT MOVING ENOUGH AND WE EXPLAINED TO HER OUR HISTORY WITH THE BOYS BEING BORN AT 32 WEEKS BECAUSE AUSTIN WAS STRESSING OUT. SO TO MAKE US ALL FEEL BETTER SHE SENT US TO GET AN ULTRASOUND AND NON STRESS TEST. THE ULTRASOUND WENT GREAT AND WE GOT TO SEE OUR LITTLE MAN THAT IS NOW 4 LBS! THE NON STRESS TEST WAS NOT SO GREAT! THE BABY LOOKED PERFECT, BUT MOMMY WAS HAVING CONTRACTIONS EVERY 5 MINUTES. THEY SENT US TO LABOR AND DELIVERY TO BE MONITORED SOME MORE AND I ENDED UP HAVING TO GET TWO SHOTS TO HELP STOP THE CONTRACTIONS. AFTER 6 HOURS OF MONITORING WE WERE ABLE TO COME HOME. I AM STILL HAVING CONTRACTIONS,BUT THEY GAVE ME SOME PILL MEDICATION TO TAKE FOR THEM AND IF THE MEDICINE DOES NOT STOP THEM, THEN OFF TO THE HOSPITAL WE WILL GO! WE ARE NOW ON WEEKLY VISITS AND DR. BENTON WANTS TO GET ME TO 35 WEEKS! I AM JUST SO THANKFUL THAT THE BABY IS DOING GREAT AND THAT THIS WAS CAUGHT AND CAN HOPEFULLY BE TAKEN CARE OF. I KNOW HE WEIGHS MORE THAN AUSTIN DID AND ALMOST AS MUCH AS AIDEN DID,BUT HE NEEDS TO BAKE ALITTLE MORE! I JUST WANT A HEALTHY BABY THAT GETS TO COME HOME WITH MOMMY AND DADDY FROM THE HOSPITAL! SO PLEASE KEEP US IN YOUR PRAYERS AND I WILL KEEP YOU ALL POSTED!
