SHhhhh! Don't Tell On Me....

I snuck out of bed to write this real quick. Last Thursday Liam attempted to make a run for the border. I was having contractions, lost my mucous plug (ewwww!!!!), my cervix thinned out and was dialating. I have been in the hospital 5 times since then. Don't worry only once was overnight. 2 of the visits were for shots to develop Liam's lungs. He looks fantastic by the way. It is my body that is lame, not his. 2 visits were for monitoring only and the overnight was for severe contractions. I'll will tell you another time about the Nurse Nazi. I haven't been back in over a week. I have a doc appt tomorrow and I have been on constant bedrest. I guess he could come any day now. They put me on meds to stop/slow the contractions and it seems to be working. Chris watches me on his days of, my Mom comes on his work days and friends help me on the weekend. I can shower and go to the bathroom alone, thank God! The day before the drama started I had Liam's last U/S. Well, now there may be more because he is so big, they may have to watch that and induce me. At 32 weeks he was est. at 5 pounds 11oz, his body was 34 weeks along and his head was 36 weeks along!!!!! Big boy!!! Well I gotta go lay back down. Talk to you as soon as I can!

...I won't tell. =) Lord knows I did more than I will admit to my husband while I was on bed rest!

Saying a prayer for you, Liam, and a safe delivery. Good luck!
