Little Miss 33 weeks

It's been quite the adventure the past two weeks but I am so glad to say I am still pregnant! During my 32 week doctor visit Jed and I were told that I was in 'preterm' labor. Meaning that little miss was trying to come out! I had to spend a few hours in Labor and Delivery in triage, given a shot, and lots of medication that slowed down my contractions. I was also put on bed rest for the week.

Poor Jed, he looked so scared in the hospital room. We both were in shock and didn't really know how to act or what to say. My pregnancy had been so easy up to this point and neither of us were excepting any major complications. We felt overwhelmed and worried.

I took it easy for the week and when I went to my next appointment we were told that I was still in 'active preterm labor' but my progression had slowed, which was good news. I was put on bed rest indefinitely, it's been a little boring, and I had to quit working which was unplanned. My bosses have been very supportive and Jed and I know it's for the best.

Other than that excitement, Jed and I have been busy finishing up little miss' room. It's almost finished and I am loving how it is coming together. It's crazy to think that she'll be here so soon, we feel completely unprepared without a clue on how to take care of a baby... Which I hear is normal for first time parents!

Reading this brought back memories of the last few weeks of my pregnancy. I was in preterm labor and put on bed rest at 33 weeks, as well. I spent five long weeks lounging around the house and getting things ready. My son was born at 38 weeks.
