Today, I went up to OB on my lunch break and had my second Celestone injection (steroid to promote the baby’s lung maturity). I also got started on Procardia three times daily (to stop contractions). I have had one dose so far, and I think that it makes me a little jittery. The baby is 2+ engaged currently, but I have not had anymore contractions today so that is good news. The baby looks great on the monitor so this is also good. I’m less worried about things today. Yesterday, was just a plain painful day. I feel good now besides the nausea. I’m supposed to be on bedrest, but it is so hard especially when I was on self-induced bedrest for so long when the hyperemesis was bad, but I also don’t want to put my baby in danger. I had two really good OB nurses again today, and it was good to get caught up with them. One is due with her first baby a week behind me so it was fun to talk with her, and the other, I have known since elementary school.
I have two more high school students that I am working with to make a total of three through volunteering. They seem like good kids. One has a really funny sense of humor that I like. They all either want to be physicians or nurses.
Tomorrow, my boys have lines in the primary program at church. My oldest’s line is, “I can choose the right by helping my mom.” I definitely need his help right now. I feel bad that I have to miss them talk.
