Quick update

My doctor (Dr. S) came to see me this afternoon, just after I got my steroid shot, and asked, "You know why we're torturing you, don't you?" He stressed that once labor gets going, the momentum is very hard to stop, so we have to put the brakes on it now, while it's in its early stages. He also told me that we need to get my uterus completely quiet before I can go home—and he said that that might not happen for several more days (boo!). The time estimates for a discharge date seem to get longer and longer, but I am glad that I and my babies are being so well taken care of. Thanks for all the prayers and well wishes you have been sending our way today!

Sounds like you are in the best hands--these docs know what they are doing--and even being in the hospital for a few days as a precaution sounds like a good idea. Like Heather said, please let us know if you are allowed to have visitors! I'm making great strides to get over my hospi-phobia. :)

Mi Suzy! So sad to hear that you're in the hospital but so glad that you're in good hands. I'm so glad they are taking great care of you and being very cautious! We don't want the babies to come so soon, but you never know...they could be totally fine! We'll be praying TONS!!!! Love you lots! Julieta

You've got heaps of hopes and prayers going up for you! Dawn and I were talking about you and your impending crew earlier this eve. We care greatly for you!

Count us in on those prayers. :-) We are just praying that God continues to watch over you all and keeps those sweet babies where they need to be for the next few weeks. Just hang in there! Each day you get through - whether it's at the hospital or at home - is one step closer to having healthy, beautiful babies.

You can do it, Suzy! There are so many people praying for you and your precious babies. You have an amazing spirit about this challenge, and we are all pulling for you. I say you've got 32 weeks in you!
