Well two days after posting that I think 6 weeks is not enough time, I ended up in the hospital last night. I had been contracting all day and tried everything. I drank so much water my feet and hands were huge. I took two long baths. I spent as much time laying on my side as possible. This is everything my Dr has told me to do. If anyone has any other suggestions to slow down contractions, please let me know. Around 9:30pm the contractions were between 5 and 10 minutes apart and I was in so much pain I couldn't stop crying (hormones are probably a huge factor in this as well). So Josh decided that we should go to the hospital. My Dr is out of town this week so the Dr on call had them give me a muscle relaxer that makes your uterus relax thus (hopefully) slowing the contractions. The shot worked and we came back home. I started contracting again at church this morning and decided to come home and rest. I seem to be doing okay as long as I stay laying down.
Benjamin was born at 35 weeks and I am now almost 34 weeks with this baby. I had really hoped to have a full-term healthy baby this time. Now I am wondering if I am going to need to buy some Preemie size clothes and diapers.
