Hello everyone! I hope things are going well for all of you. Things are going ok with me. Just starting to count down the weeks left of this pregnancy. I don't mind being pregnant - just getting to the point now that I am starting to get uncomfortable and really tired. I keep telling myself only 2 1/2 - 3 months to go. I can't wait to see these babies! My little Caylee and Cayden!
This week I had noticed side cramping and had been experiencing it for a few days so I called my doctor and they told me to go to the ER to be checked out for safe measure. So I went and ended up staying the night. They monitored the babies and their heartbeats were great. Come to find out I started to have small and very few contractions but enough to keep me for observation and give me steroid shots to help mature the babies' lungs more quickly. I also have to take Brethine for the remaining of my pregnancy or at least until 36 weeks. This medicine is used to stop contractions. So I have to take it every four hours like clock work. I really don't like the way it makes me feel. I feel shaky - tired - nauseated - etc. but if it is going to keep Caylee and Cayden in my belly longer than I will do what ever it takes. I wasn't expecting that at all. However - I am able to work and continue with my daily activities so I am not forced to bed rest yet so that's good.
My next appointment is April 24th. This appointment I will get another ultrasound and I will get my sugar test done. I am looking forward to the ultrasound to see how much Caylee and Cayden have grown. I am getting anxious to see what and who they look like - but I do want them to cook a little longer before they enter the world!
Other than that - things have been going good. The weather is starting to get nicer so that makes the days that much brighter.
I have dates set for my baby showers so that's exciting to look forward to. The month of May should go by really fast with three baby showers scheduled and weekly doctor's appointments.
This weekend I am going to take it easy. I am looking forward to relaxing and kicking my feet up. It seems like I have been so busy lately I have not had much time just to take it easy. Well I am going to do that this weekend. Doctor's orders!
I hope everyone has a great week. Check back next week for another update.
