Updates again

Things happen quickly...

Let's see what we have found today.

1. I failed the first glucose tolerance test... 3 hour test tomorrow AM.

2. Apparently my cervix has shortened a little... though we were cautioned not to worry too much about the measurements because they can differ depending on who is measuring.

3.  Apparently my cervix has opened a little... though not much.  Enough to freak me out and to make the doctor nervous.

4. I'm having mild contractions that I can't feel... I'm on blood pressure meds to stop them.

5. Steroids are coming tomorrow... not Saturday.

I was pretty shaken up, but like my hubby said... I'm doing absolutely everything I have been told.  I'm doing my part... the rest is up to my body.

The babies??  They're still great.  They're what we're pulling for.  :)

The moral of today?  I would not have made it though all this bad news if my hubby hadn't been here.  I miss him a ton when he's not here.

Awww, you poor thing. You're doing everything you can for your babies. Stay strong. I know it has to be hard without your husband with you all the time. Keep us updated.

You are right. . . You are doing everything you can do for your babies, and that is all you can do right now. It sounds like your husband has been an excellent support system for you. Hang in there.

Huge hugs!

Again, I'm so sorry you and your husband are having to face this difficult, anxiety-provoking experience, though your attitude is inspiring... Keep that positive thinking!

I'm hoping and praying that things remain stable and calm.

Argh about the glucose screen. I hope the follow up test shows you're just fine. Nothing like bedrest and a GD diet! Make that double argh.

Stay tough, Stace - you guys will get through this! Glad to see some good news on the diabeties, though. Just think, every day you get through means they're that much healthier!!

Praying for you and those babies Stace!! ((HUGS))
