I think I'm buying myself at least 4-6 weeks of bedrest. I worked today & started having contractions this afternoon. On my way home I called my OB's office just to check if I should call Dr. or come in to the hospital if the contractions didn't ease up. Pam said to go directly to OB at the hospital. So, I came home, chugged some more water and went to bed. Not even 5 mins. after I got into bed, my OB called me. I told him what was going on & he has me taking my meds every 4 hrs. for a few doses, increasing my water and resting. He told me that we'd have to review it this weekend, but he thinks that work is definitely not working for me right now. I'm almost 34 wks by ultrasound and 32.3 weeks by calculation, so it's a little better than last time, but I think I need at least 4 more weeks!

So.... I prolly won't be on much. I'll keep you all updated as I can.

I just talked to my OB.... he's too cute.... calls me at home.

Anywho.... he thinks that it is the physical nature of my job that is causing all of this premature labor. I tend to agree. My other pregnant coworkers BOTH went into premature labor this week and are now on Terbutiline with me. Anyway, I emailed both my boss & charge RN to give them the scoop and see what they want to do. If I can't have a sit down job, he wants me to go on medical leave. I think I might be off work until Lauren comes b/c there's no way in haydes they will come up with a non-physical job for me.

Yup.... I have both Michele and Liz programmed on my cell. And I know ya both can relay a message for me.... Especially on Lauren's arrival. I bet it will be in the next 4 weeks. Oy!

Oh yeah, and my Doc said he didn't think I needed to stay flat all the time. I can be up doing light things, but no housework or any of that. So, when I'm not napping, I can be on the computer! TTYL!
