In the Hospital...

Well I said I was going to blog more but I haven't. Even now that I have all the time in the world I just don't have the motivation. I don't know why.

I'm currently 32 weeks and 2 days along. HOWEVER, Baby a tried to make an escape last Wednesday she ruptured her membranes (broke her water). It was 1am and I was getting up for my first pee of the night since falling asleep at 11pm. I went to get up and a little wetness came out. I was wondering if I just wasn't holding it in. I kept my momentum of getting up and made my way to the bathroom. I got up to go wake J and more leaked out...that's when it really clicked in that it had happened.

I went to wake him up from his deep slumber and had to tell him I wasn't joking. He was great though. I had to go back to the bathroom because of the leaking and had to delegate to him from was pretty funny. I had an emergency number in my purse and asked for one of my baby books that had a list of what to bring to the hospital because of course that bag wasn't packed, even with the list I forgot a lot.

It only took us about 25 minutes to get to the hospital. You kind of have to put all decency aside when walking into a hospital with wet jogging pants...but at least I have a big belly to explain it!

I was admitted into the hospital and given a steroid shot for the baby's lung development and hooked up to IVs and baby heart rate monitors. I didn't sleep very much.

I wasn't having any contractions through the night so they transferred me to another area for monitoring and well here I am still a week later in the hospital. My fluid is too low for them to feel comfortable sending me home. But they keep dangling it in front of me...I'm going to tell the doctor to only tell me when they are 100% sure I'm going home.

I was transferred to from by window side bed yesterday to a less optimal one. But it is what it is...

The babies are both doing well. The heart rates are perfect and they are growing like weeds! Baby A is 4lbs and Baby B is 3lb 14 oz.

So that's where I'm at currently.
