Bed Rest Day 55 - Don't piss off my girly bits

Now in addition to my incompetent cervix, my uterus is irritable. Ha!

Spent the morning in labor & delivery. Started having contractions last night & they didn't stop like they usually do and they weren't spacing out. I hardly slept. When I "woke up" this morning, I was still having them & was certain I was in labor & gonna give birth to a Thanksgiving turkey!

So, Corey & I trek to the hospital - I get monitored. Turns out, I'm slightly (1 cm) dilated & 80% effaced AND I'm contracting every few minutes. Hmmm...sounds like labor to me. So, doc decides to be slightly aggressive & gives me a nice healthy dose of terbutaline. Let the shakes begin!

Contractions slow down, pressure subsides. Home I go - shaking worse than Michael J. Fox after a trip to Starbucks.

One more week of this terbutaline - they promised. I hate it. It makes me feel like crap. My heart is pounding out of my chest. I'm shaking. My belly is tight & I'm incredibley uncomfortable.

I just hope this little one leaves me some room in there to stuff turkey & dressing in there tomorrow.
