Little hats...

I am getting more and more excited about the arrival of my baby boys!  Fear has left and anticipation has arrived!  At 34 +5  we are in a safe zone if they were delivered.  I am sure what I was struggling with prior, had a lot to do with having premature babies.  I know now that my babies will be safe!

I had another NST today and the boys did awesome!  It showed my uterus is still very irritable, however, and I had only one big contraction.  During that contraction, Baby B moved and it started picking up my heart beat, which scared me!  As I was watching the monitor I saw his heart rate decel! So, Dr. I wanted to ensure that it was just my own heart rate and so he did a BPP (Biophysical Profile)as well, which monitors fluid, hear rate, muscle tone, movement and breathing.  It was awesome seeing both boys doing their practices breathing!  And Baby B had the hiccups!   So cute!  All was confirmed good for both. 

My cervix is STILL CLOSED, however, it is beginning to soften.  So it looks like we're headed in the right direction!

I have already booked a photographer for when the boys come home.  Newborn photo's should be done within the first two weeks after birth, or once I'm able to bring them home.  I saw these cute little elf hats and thought they would look adorable for their photo shoot... I can't wait!

Glad to hear that you and your boys are doing so good. The hats are so cute.... i love them!
To answer your question, i felt that once i stopped the procardia my contractions were more frequent and stronger. But after a few days i feel that it has gone down to my normal amount of contractions, which is about 6-9 every hour. I am trying to just ignore them.... i am so over it! Although some are painful so it makes it a little difficult. Hope all goes well when you stop taking it.... but it sounds like for the most part that you have just about stopped.

Uneggsplained... thanks for the reply! As for my contractions, they haven't totally stopped. Its strange, I'll be doing good all day then in the evening, I'll lay down, and I start contracting every 5-8 min. I've had to take 1 pill every day this wk! I took one tonight and they haven't totally settled down :-\ But, like you, I'm trying to ignor them! Some of mine are getting really uncomfortable as well. Glad your still doing good!

Glad the babies are doing well:) The little hats are SO cute! We actually got some similar ones- just can't wait to see them on their cute little heads! It really is a relief to have passed the 34 week mark- we're getting so close!
