So, I went in for my NST on Thursday morning and didn't end up leaving until Friday morning.

Sorry about the preterm labor! I hope you can keep your babies in there for a few more weeks with taking it easy and no more work! When do you go back to the doctor again?

Keeping my fingers crossed that you can make it 2.5 more weeks! Keep those feet up as much as you can and only get up for very short periods. Maybe there are other things (exercises) you can do to prevent clots - like when you're on a plane and can't move about. Good luck.

Hope those babies cooperate and can keep baking for a few more weeks! Thinking of you and make sure you do follow dr orders!

So your contractions are painful? Mine weren't painful, just uncomfortable, and when it made the baby move that was painful (he doesn't have much room left in there). I'm aiming for 37 weeks now myself, which would be June 3. Seems so far away! Hope you lay around some more and start to feel even better.

Robin - I'm sorry you are going through that :-( I looked for an update all day Friday and was worried that something had gone wrong at your appointment. I hope that being out of work helps keep those boys in there for a while!

Robin - I was worried about you last week when we hadn't heard from you after your appt.

Robin I just saw this! How scary! I'm glad they were able to get the contractions stopped and that you're home now. Hopefully the next couple weeks will go by quickly. Will they release you from bedrest in 2 weeks and let things happen as they happen or do they want you to continue on bedrest? I've been on restricted activity this whole pregnancy because of my premature delivery & complications in the past so I know it can be a drag. Glad to hear your latest appointment went well and you were able to get some pictures! Keep us posted on how you're doing!

I'm glad your appointment went well and you didn't have any contractions during the NST. I hope things continue to go well so Dawson and Devin can bake a bit longer!
