31 weeks 4 days
Another day here at the hospital. Today is Monday. Last night I spent the night alone at the hospital and it was fine. I was having contractions for several hours that I took some pain meds to help with the pain, so I thought things were going, but then everything settled down again. The nurse did check me and I am dilated to a 3 and 60% effaced. Later this morning I got pretty sick with a headache and nausea. I threw up 2 times and after doing that it made my headache go away. So now I am feeling pretty good. Getting lots of anti-biotics through my IV. I think this baby is going to be coming in the next couple of days....but no one really knows. I am so grateful that the baby has stayed in long enough to get the things he needs to be as healthy as he can be. I know its going to be hard when he is born because he will be so small and will have to stay in the NICU for several weeks, but I know he will be okay and we will be able to take him home sooner than we think. We will see what happens for the rest of the day. I am feeling better a little so that is a good thing. We will let you know if anything else happens. If the baby comes now I feel good about his survival. We have learned a lot from the doctors here to prepare us for whats to come. Thanks for reading this. Have a good day!
