29 W 1 D
Well, this week was a repeat of last week. Why can't we skip Wednesday and Thursdays? Wednesday I did the 24 hour monitoring again which results in NO sleep. I had a few hours with 6 contractions so I might need to get my medicine increased again. Thursday I was exhausted. I did my evening monitoring and had 6. That was not long after a big dose of medicine. So, I gave myself a demand dose, drank water, went to the restroom and remonitored. Then I had 7. The nurse called me and told me to get ready to go to the hospital and she'd call my doctor. I ended up having to get another demand dose, drink water, go to the restroom and remonitor again. At 1:30 am I had 4 contractions and was allowed to go to sleep. Phew! Today is our long ultra sound appointment. I am excited and anxious to see the girls and how much they have grown. The appointments are getting more difficult for me because I get so worn out. But then again everything is difficult these days. I had measure 52 inches around earlier this week. Then all of a sudden gravity took over and my belly has dropped several inches which makes it difficult to do anything. I am very excited to have made it to 29 weeks and still be at home. My body is very tired though and everything hurts. I am so grateful for each day I make it further though. Stay tuned for the ultra sound results.
