35 weeks

A couple days ago, I had an extra visit with my high risk OB due to the polyhydramnios (extra fluid). Baby and placenta looked great! Baby was estimated at 7.5 lbs and we could see hair floating above his head! I noticed just before the appointment that I must’ve lost my mucous plug that afternoon so the doc checked but my cervix was closed, maybe 50% effaced. He did feel two contractions during the exam so he sent me to be monitored which turned into admission to labor and delivery as contractions were 2-3minutes apart. These contractions were just tight, not painful. Through the course of the evening and a few bags of IV fluids, the contractions became lower and painful, so I got additional meds and was able to sleep just a bit. Good news was that I finally got to eat the next morning when contractions were 6-12 minutes apart. My doc explained that the contractions won’t stop due to the hydramnios. I was discharged from the hospital last night after my second steroid shot for baby. I’m now on bedrest and out of work probably until baby arrives which is planned for 37 weeks if he stays out until then. Any and all prayers for my body to calm down, baby to get heads down into delivery position, and baby to stay strong are very much appreciated. He’s still moving well and we got some great face pictures!
