More Drama..It is going to be a long sum

The drama started on Monday, I had contractions all day.. cramps and just all over discomfort more then normal. Tuesday got worse so I call my OB, she sent me straight to L&D. I got admitted and stayed for 3 hours for observation to monitor the babies and contractions. I was having 10+ an hour. The babies were doing good kicking and moving strong heartbeats, but still have contractions like crazy. They examed me and I was not dilated for the what the nurse could feel. I was released around 8pm told to go home, go to bed and stay in bed and drink lots of water, then go to OB on Thursday for followup.

I'm just returned from follow up OB appt. I'm not actually in labor or having PTL, no dilating. OB siad it is BH due to irratatible uterus, the twins are moving more and weight more so they are causing things to act up more than with Hayden. No bedrest yet:) Instead I'm under house arrest. I can go to dr appt, allergy shots and dropping off and picking up Hayden from school. I can cook dinner every other night. I can no longer clean, do laundry, shop, etc. I have to rest and stay relaxed as much as possible to keep my uterus from getting irratated. I have to take Benadryl or Tyenol PM to make my body relax in hope to stop contractions.

She said I will be put on bedrest in the near future, and to find full time care for Hayden by the end of the month and for the rest of the summer.
