I spent all of last week in the hospital on magnesium sulfate trying to stop pre-term labor. It felt like a very long week, but the mag slowed the contractions and we kept the babies growing and healthy. They were also given a steroid to help their lungs develop. I am home from the hospital now and it feels SO GOOD to sleep in my own bed and breath fresh air. Since I've been home I've had a chance to properly pack my bags feel prepared. Now...we wait. The doctors are confident that if the babies were to come now they would be healthy and ready to come home with us. I feel big, uncomfortable, and a mix of tired and restless. My contractions have not stopped, but they are mild and I'm not about to go back to the hospital until I really think it's time.
I don't think I have officially shared the babies names yet. Below I have posted pictures of their room. May I present...Maxwell and Ella's nursery.
