Today was a bit of a roller coaster ride. The first of many, I’m sure! Contractions were quiet all night and all morning and the doctor was ready to send me home on bed rest. My own bed and the comfort of having my family close was at my fingertips. Just as the nurse started putting together my release forms and doing one last monitor strip on me….contractions returned. Boo. After an afternoon and evening of monitoring they really hadn’t slowed or got less intense so here at the hospital I will stay. The doctor did check my cervix and it’s still closed. Tomorrow I’ll have an ultra sound to measure the length again. I’m thinking as long as the length hasn’t changed drastically I’ll be able to head home.
The bright side of being at the hospital? It’s wonderful to have room service all day long since I’m normally the one serving people at home 🙂 Also, it does make me feel safer knowing there are a team of nurses and doctors to monitor the babies and me throughout the day and night.
However, I miss my Greg and Cole. I haven’t seen Cole since Friday morning (it’s Sunday now) and it’s starting to break me down being away from him for so long. We Skyped tonight and the first thing he said to me was, “Mommy can you please come home because I love you so much.” And then gave his boo-boo face. Broke my heart. It was all I could do to hold back tears, because I didn’t want to upset him more! I’m so proud of how well he’s been behaving and coping with this whole situation. We shall see what tomorrow brings. Open mind, open heart.
