Today's doctor's appointment revealed that I am still 80% effaced and fingertip dilated. Great news. At least I know that all of this terribly boring bedrest is doing something good! I also had a Non-stress test today (NST) which showed pretty steady contractions. I had about 6 over a 30-40 minute span. They aren't really painful, just really uncomfortable because they create so much pressure. The nurse seemed slightly concerned about this. After showing it to the doctor I was sent home with instructions to call if the contractions get any closer together or get more painful. Both babies heartbeats showed accelerations which is really good.
The doctor today said if I go into labor in the next 2 weeks the will do everything they can to stop it, but once I hit 34 weeks they will go ahead and deliver the babies if my body decides it is time. I am still really hoping to hold out for 36 weeks. I asked the doctor about this and he said it might be possible to go up until my due date. He said there is really no way to tell. So now I just sit and wait!
