My cervix remains closed, but the best news my OB gave me is that I no longer have to do home monitoring. Yay! Essentially, my last weapon for pre-labor was Terbutaline, but unfortunately I had a bad reaction to it last week, so no more Terb.
Strategy. We’re at a really good place at 33 weeks. Our strategy to stop labor is bed rest, hydrating, Benedryl, and soaks in the tub to relax my uterus. After monitoring for up to 4 hours a day, my doc feels I know my body well enough to monitor my own contractions at home. I found a handy app Labor and Contraction Timer that is fabulous. I tend to average 6 to 8 contractions an hour. My threshold is 10 an hour.
At 33 weeks, only by the grace of God we have come from such a long way from non-viable babies at 21 weeks to where are today. Can’t wait to meet our girls!
