Almost but *not quite*

So... a couple of nights ago I started having some contractions. Based on my history I didn't think too much of it. But they were pretty persistent so WorkerBee and I decided that since it was so late and the BabyBee was already asleep we would just go to the hospital, get me a shot of Terbutaline and head on home! Epic FAIL. My body decided to try going into labor early again- I was 35 weeks exactly the night we went in. I honestly don't know how some ladies can make it all the way to their due dates. I applaud you ALL. For me at 28 weeks my body starts saying OK! Let's do this! Which makes the doctors nervous. Anyhow. Long story short, I got put on MORE magnesium sulfate to try and stop my labor, got an "emergency" amniocentesis and prayed really hard to NOT have a baby before Christmas and to be discharged before then. Thankfully I am home now with my Bee boys and we were able to share a wonderful Christmas together! This is our last time we will have a Christmas with just the 3 of us so it was pretty special and important to be able to be there! Hooray for Christmas miracles and modern medicine AND steroid shots. Which by the way HURT. A lot. I will be posting pics from my awesome hospital stay- most of which involve the 5 incredible bruises I got from the nurses attempting to get my IV in. Yeah. I hate needles. And there will be pics from Christmas as well! Hope you all had a Merry Christmas and that we can remember the real reason for the season.
