3 Shots Should Do It

Well 3 shots and 3 IV tries was how my Friday night went. Yep preterm labor, so fun. I started having contractions yesterday late afternoon. I was not too worried since they were not lasting very long, but coming every couple of minutes. I got a hold of my doctor's office and they wanted me to go to the hospital to be checked. Brian and I got there around 7 ish and I was hooked up. Her heart beat was going CRAZY. She was any where from 175 to 200 and the normal range is 110 to 160. They took my temp and it was close to 100. I had no idea since I was feeling fine yesterday. So I was lucky to get three shots of terbutaline. They also gave me an IV and it took three tries to get it in. Let's just say my hands hurt right now. So I guess I picked up something this week and baby girl wanted out of the TOO HOT OVEN. Thankfully I was able to cool down and her racing heart did the same. We came home after 10. Now I hope we have no more scares until I am 36 weeks or further along and she can come any time after that.

I hope the rest of your pregnancy goes easy, and that your little girl will stay in the oven just a little while longer. I feel for you.... I had to have terbutaline with Jaren, and that stuff was rough! Take it easy, ok?

That's a little scary! Glad everything worked out though. Lay on your couch and stay cool! Easier said than done with 2 little boys though!

Oh man....hearing the word terbutaline just makes the hairs on my neck stand up. I know ALL about this. I was getting those shots left and right with Cam starting at 24 weeks. I know it's hard, hang in there! At least you are pretty far along, I'll be praying for you! Let me know if you need any help! I'm sure my kids would love to have the boys over to play sometime!
