Spent the day at L&D

I spent all day in L&D today, I woke up in the morning and was bleeding (old blood) so off we went to see what was up. My cervix looked fine and the baby is doing good but I was contracting every 3 min and not feeling them. I had an u/s and he is doing perfect 8/8 on his bio physical they estimate his weight at 5lbs give take a pound which is the 60th percentile. I had to get the shot to mature his lungs and they also ended up giving me morphine and gravel to settle my uterus. When they let me go my contracts were erratic around 12 minutes or longer. I go back tomorrow for the second round of the shot and was told not to work until the bleeding subsides so I will take Friday off and hopefully by Monday all will be good. I have felt a couple BH since I have been home and will tell them when I go back tomorrow... Please send me P&PT all stays okay and he cooks longer.

oh no! so sorry about the contractions, but glad they are giving you the shots just in case he decides to make an early arrival. Thinking good thoughts that he cooks for another 4 weeks, at least!!

Yikes! I'm sorry you have to deal with this already - let's hope your baby bakes a bit longer, but it's reassuring to know they are taking good care of you and baby is already est. at 5 lbs - that is great! Lots of P&PT that he can hold off a bit longer and all goes smoothly!

How scary! I hope he stays put at least til you get to 36 weeks, he's a good size so should be fine if he's born then, especially as you've had the shots. KUP.
