Four weeks down

I end my fourth week in the hospital as the nation prepares to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday. And, although the past month certainly hasn't been an easy one, Ted and I have much to be thankful for, including the fact that the babies continue to stay put and grow (believe it or not, I gained 12 pounds last week!).

Unfortunately, my poor uterus is sick and tired of being stretched out, so it keeps contracting like crazy. As I type this, I am getting my second bolus of the week in an effort to calm down my relentless contractions. I guess that this Thanksgiving I'll just be substituting the traditional tryptophan coma for a magnesium sulfate brain fog. (Hmm, I'm pretty sure that I'd rather eat too much turkey ... )

So glad to hear they're still staying put. It's hard to believe you've been there for a month. Here's to another 4 weeks. =/

Four weeks! WOW! You're doing a great job. I can't belive it's been that long. Happy Thanksgiving! Hope you and Ted are able to spend a little bit of time together today. (you will probably be out of it though) Still praying.....

Happy Thanksgiving Suzy! Did you get to enjoy the Jon & Kate marathon on TV today? Or just sticking with the computer?

Hi, you are carrying double the number of babies I am and I think we are about the same dates wise {although I assume you may have yours before I have mine!!:)}

I just wanted to say good luck and you seem to be handling it all so very well....keep posting, I'm sure I'm not the only 'stranger' who has read your blog...weird isn't it??
