As I was writing the post earlier, I was also timing contractions. They came every 20 mins, then every 15 mins, and then I had an hour of them coming every 10 mins. So I decided it was time to call. They told me to come on in to get monitored. They did a quick sonogram and hold on to your shorts!!
Abigail is 6 lbs 13 oz and Olivia is 7 lbs !!!!!!!!! Girlies, you are huge!!
They could not get the babies to stay still long enough to get a reading on the monitors. We (me and 2 nurses) tried for about 20 mins. I had 2 contractions that didn't even register because the babies kept kicking the monitor up and flipping it over. It would have been funny if we didn't need to get a reading so bad! The nurses could feel the contractions and finally gave up because they weren't getting registered anyway.
I saw Dr. Read and he said that he wanted me to hold off and make it to Wednesday so he could do the surgery. Awww...I MUST be one of his favorites. Of course, my cervix was hard and closed. He started to just prescribe me something to stop the contractions, but as we sat there and waited for him to come back and talk to me after he did a procedure, I had 4 contractions in about 15 minutes. So he sent me over to L&D to get shots (heavy duty) to stop my contractions. The L&D nurse commented that I was contracting pretty hard, so if we didn't already have Wednesday planned, we would have had babies today!! Wheee...but no.
Here I am at home. The meds make me jittery and dizzy and give me a headache, so that's fun. Z is with my mom and I can rest up tomorrow for my big day.
