Here We Go Again!!!

Well it is official...Dr's orders and all. I am on COMPLETE bedrest! ARG..and I thought I was going to make it this time without it!
So I am on complete bedrest and taking the AWFUL medicine Terbutaline. The side effects of this horrid med is shaking, VERY fast heartbeats, and utter insaneness..as Phillip would say! lol. I have to check my pulse before I take each dose to make sure that my pulse isn't above 120....120 people...thats an INSANE rate!
I was admitted into the hospital on Monday because they performed a "Fetal Fibronectin" test on me and it came back positive. Positive means I could POSSIBLY have this baby within 2 weeks. Mind you, I am only 29 weeks right now...so this IS NOT good. I was immediately put on a rotation of shots and pills, shots and pills of Terbutaline every 2 hours, from about 7 pm Monday night until around 1 pm Tuesday afternoon. During this time my pulse got up to 130 so they had to slack off on the meds a bit!
So, I have decided that if I don't want this baby to come in 2 weeks, I better keep myself PLANTED to the bed!

Tata for now...I have to go take more psycho med =)! (I'll NEVER understand why ANYONE would want to take REAL drugs!!! Its a HORRIBLE feeling!)

Well just think, when the baby does finally come (when he is supposed to ) you can testify that God delivered you from drugs.

you poor thing! I'll be praying your little guy can hold on at least another month before being born.

Katie, We will be praying for you and baby #3. I'm sure bedrest is tough enough, but with 2 other kids to mommy it's got to be driving you crazy! So we will pray for God to help you and kids and Phillip and of course the baby survive this insanity!

Well, if for some reason bedrest does work and you get past the next two weeks, we will have to have another PJ party for you!

I will be praying for you and the baby! Especially about the psycho part!!!! That is an awful side effect!

Remember my offer to help (and my girls) you with anything...housekeeping, babysitting Trys, etc!

Love ya

Hang in there

Katie, God will take care of you and yours.
