Whitey is on her way to save the Day

KIRBY UPDATE:
Well little Miss Kirby tried to make her debut Sunday but we fought it off. I am officially on a modified bedrest (as much as possible bedrest with a 2 and 3 year old). Saturday afternoon I wasn't feeling great and then Sunday morning I was having a crampy feeling with a lot of Braxton Hicks. Finally Sunday afternoon I decided to call the dr. and he thought it was nothing to worry about and that if I thought it was getting worse I could go up to the OB floor. Well, Rusty and I decided to go just to check and get peace of mind. When we got there I was in fact having contractions every two minutes, though I was still at 3cm. Since I am 4 days short of 35 weeks I was given IV fluids, Terbutaline which made me feel terrible, and Demerol for the contractions that were making my toes curl. So...all this to say is that Kirby is coming soon. I am at home taking Procardia to slow down/stop the contractions. Bags are packed and we are getting more excited. Whitey is on her way to save the day and is going to stay with us and help Rusty perform daily duties until Kirby comes. We are praying for healthy lungs and no NICU, but we are excited and know that it is all in God's control. We shall see what the dr. says Thursday:) Next post may be a precious baby girl.

i feel your pain. that happened to me at the beginning of january. i was due jan 29th, but went into preterm labor, just like you at 35 weeks. they did all they could for 2 weeks to stop labor, just to make it to 37 weeks. once i hit that mark, i got off bedrest and meds and my baby came the next day. at 37 weeks exactly.
so, good luck to you! and a happy, safe, and healthy delivery and baby. can't wait to see pictures.
