Bed Rest....

This morning I woke up and still had contractions so I called my doctor. He told me to head on over to labor and delivery to be monitored. When I got there the contrations were pretty regular so they gave me a shot of brethine, and then another shot of it a few hours later. They checked to see if I was dialating or effacing and I am 50% effaced and dialated to a 1. The doctor seems to think everything will be okay so they gave me some more meds and sent me home with restricted rest. I cannot pick up my 22 month old or walk around much. I look around my house and see all that I need to do. I really hope that I can get back to normal soon. I am sooo not ready for an early baby.

That's my update!!


  1. Robyn,

    I'm so sorry you're having this hard time! It's almost impossible to rest when you already have a large family. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

  2. Robyn!
    Tomorrow I'll come over and be your "slave", jump up and run and do whatever you want. I'll clean or do dishes or do laundry or cook. Just know that whatever I cook usually doesn't turn out so you'll need to watch me and give really clear directions to make sure I don't ruin it. We'll get through these last weeks together, sis.


Thanks for leaving me a comment! I love to hear from you!!
