The most eventful week of this pregnancy so far!

Well after a very eventful weekend the week hasn't gotten much better!  I have had at least a few hours of contractions everyday!  Last night was the worst they got very painful and I called my OB.  He said to give it a few more hours and if it gets worse to go in and they would start me on steroids to help mature the girls lungs.  Then I would be shipped to Dartmouth or Boston.  I prayed they wouldn't get worse!  I would feel better if I was at 26 plus weeks because the chance of survival is good.  Wow I never thought I would think a 26 week delivery would be a wish!  I obviously hope they stay in way longer than that but I would rather 26 weeks instead of 24!  I am grateful I am at the point where they would fight for our girls if they were born in the next week or so.  I haven't been back to work since Friday when everything started going haywire and I am hoping at my appointment Monday I get put on modified bed rest for the rest of the pregnancy!  Anyway, the contractions stayed the same and I went to bed.  This morning I just feel sore and I am sure if I get up and do any light activity the contractions will start again so I am trying to stay on the couch.   Hopefully with modified bed rest I can keep these babies in for a long time!  We will see what happens!
