When we got to the hospital they checked me in at Labor & Delivery. The nurse was really nice but had us kinda freaking out. She was prepping me to deliver within the next 24 hours. I had to be monitored for 24 hours and then they would make the decision. They had the NICU head doc come and talk to us (which also freaked me out). In my mind, I was just going in to be monitored and maybe in a few weeks I would be delivered - not that weekend or even in the next couple weeks!!
After 24 hours, my levels and bp had stabilized to a point where Dr. O felt like she could hold off on delivering, but she did say the babies would probably be here before 38 weeks. I was moved to the Ante Partum unit and monitored for another couple days. They monitored the babies every 4 hours so we got to hear their sweet little hearts beats A LOT. I think Hayden has settled in because he's been pretty quite lately. Connor on the other hand has been a wild man. The nurses were always laughing because he was constantly moving away from the monitor and they would have to hunt him down. I also showed some major contractions while being monitored. I love my sweet babies but I don't want to meet them just yet. I want them to get bigger and stronger! Thankfully, I was sent home after 3 days at the hospital and spent the rest of the week on strict bed rest and monitoring my blood pressure. I have a couple appts with Dr. O to make sure the pre-e hasn't gotten worse.
