Hospital Update

20130720-101744.jpg
Apparently I’m a fall risk lol! This magnesium is awful. Aside from the benefits of slowing down contractions and aiding in the babies’ brain development, it sucks! It makes me so tired, you know that tired where your eyes burn? That’s what it’s like, except I can’t sleep much. That’s also in part due to the amount of liquids I’m drinking to help my dry mouth and crazy thirst. I think I’m drinking 2-3 gallons of liquids a day, plus IV fluids, so you can only imagine how much I have to get up to use the bathroom. Add to this blood work every six hours. They’ve had to move to my fingers because I’ve been stuck so much in my arm. Then there’s the nurse checking my vitals and lungs every couple hours. It’s crazy!!

The plan is to stop the magnesium tonight at 11pm. It can be detrimental to have it for five days at a time. They wanted to keep it on long enough so I could have a set of steroid shots. They have me the second one at 100am so they will stop the mag tonight and see how it goes without it. My doctor will check in on Monday to see how I’m doing with no medication. Hopefully I’ll continue to have minimal contractions and I can go home! I’m not holding my breath but we will see.

Also, we are famous! Lol. A nice article from our local paper with a video:

Thanks for all the love and support. Keep it coming!!
