Feel Bad Tuesdays

I think I am going to start naming Tuesday's, "Feel Bad Tuesday's" because again yesterday, I felt bad. I woke up several times on Monday night with contractions, a few of them were VERY painful and woke me out of a deep sleep. I could not get comfortable and I had a nasty, middle back ache. I was a little reassured since my backache was in the middle of my back & not my lower... But, I still felt terrible nonetheless. I took some Tylenol that did not even TOUCH the pain.

I woke up when Dustin went to work because I just couldn't stand to toss and turn in bed anymore. I ate some breakfast, drank some water, took my procardia and laid back down. At one point, before the procardia, my contractions were pretty regular & intense. I drank more water and laid on my left side and it eventually subsided.

I tossed around the idea of going into Labor & Delivery all morning, but as soon as the medicine kicked in, the contractions stopped. I have no idea what brought them on, I imagine the interrupted sleep. That is not going to get any better unfortunately.

I am so big and so awkward. I can not turn in bed on my own. I can barely get up to go to the bathroom. I am ready to have these babies, but I just want to avoid the NICU. At 35 weeks, they can be delivered in Princeton with no Neonatal ICU. Just a few more days I NEED them to hang around.

I have another doctor appointment next Thursday, April 30th. It feels like forever away, but of course, if I need to go in sooner, L & D is only a few minutes away.

Love, Sara

I know you have been so brave through this all Sara, but now you need to just think about you and the babies. You MUST stay in bed now to keep those contractions down. Do what the doctors tell you. I CANNOT wait to see the boys (and you as a non-pregnant Sarah). Keep in bed, keep up with the Procardia. You're almost there, and I must say how impressed I am with you! Good job Momma~ :)
