Sunday morning I awoke feeling a little different, not terribly bad but just not normal. So I waited until lunch when Karen and Steve, came over. I told her about my symptoms and she insisted on me calling the doctor. So I called and they suggested me come over to the hospital. Thank goodness that week I decided to make a list of what I would need should I have to go to the hospital. So, we packed a bag with all the things I may need. I decided on the way to the hospital I needed to call my mother, sister, and friend Ashleigh. They were on the way to the beach for the hair show we had all scheduled to go to that weekend. Obviously I wasn't venturing off to the beach with being put on bed rest. I hated to call and put a damper on the much needed vacation that they were about to enjoy, but obviously Wesley and Cooper thought otherwise.
Once we got to triage the doctors asked me all the questions about my symptoms and decided to do an exam. Well, turns out one of the amniotic sacs had burst and I was leaking some fluid. I had not noticed anything so obviously this was a surprise to me. They immediately decided to admit me to the hospital. The doctors said chances of infection can be high when you start to leak so they started a IV's with antibiotics. They gave me steroid shots to help the babies lungs develop in the event that I go into labor. Although they had a plan to do their best to stop labor if it should happen so we just hoped for the best. All my family were on the way to the hospital and we were doing our best to keep everyone informed.
Over the next 24 hours the babies heart rates were measured continuously which was pretty hard since they are busy little ones most all the time. They started running test for gestational diabetes and preclamsia. These were not fun at all I felt like a pin cushion and the labor and delivery beds are NOT made for laying in for 24 hours while all these test were run. By Monday night they were ready to move me to a area of maternity called antepartum where they monitor moms with preterm labor 24-7. A much more comfortable place for me to considering I wasn't having contractions so labor hadn't started. I was ready for a shower and a comfy bed and that I got. The doctors have informed me now that they want me to stay in the hospital until the boys are born so they can monitor us all continuously.
Now it is all up to Wesley and Cooper and when they decide to make their grand entrance. It could be 7 weeks or less no matter what they will deliver the boys by 34 weeks. I'm resting as much as possible but they have allowed me to shower once a day and go to the bathroom. Today they said I can even have 2 20 minute wheelchair rides a day!! After being stuck in a room 2 days I'm super excited about going out and about. I have had lots of visitors so far so I haven't had time to get bored or go stir crazy. Thank goodness for all my friends and family who care so much about Wesley, Cooper, Justin and I. I am so blessed to still have two healthy babies and so I thank god everyday that he is watching over my babies and I. I just have to remember he is in control and it is all up to him. I am doing my best to try and be patient and let the boys decide when they want to come the longer they wait the better. but it is up to them and god. Thank you so much to everyone so far who has been to visit and prayed for the health of my babies and I. I also wanted to post my 27 week pictures. From now on I guess I will be taking them in a night gown, haha. I will have updates next week so stay tuned I'm hoping there isn't much to report for a little while.
