+ FFN & an overnight in L&D

After closely monitoring my ctx's the last 24 hrs, I decided to come back to L&D to be monitored.

Turns out in 1.5cm dilated & 50% effaced. And, FFN test came back positive. That bought me an overnight stay to continue monitoring. :(.

Prayers these contractions stop or at least slow , there's no more cervical changes & the girls stay in longer!

I'm 32w2d....

If contractions keep up they'll do mag & steroids & I'll have to be transferred to the other hospital if that doesn't stop them.

Nothing like a stay in L&D to make me realize how much needs to be done to be ready!

Re: + FFN & an overnight in L&D

  • Oh, and when I asked if this was gonna put me on bed rest.... The on call OB said - no. That research shows w/ twins bed rest doesn't prove to help & may even have adverse affects.... ?! Huh? :/

  • Good luck girl! I Just posted- same thing happened to me and my girls are here doing great. Hope the can stop contractions a little longer but if they can't the babies will be fine, especially if you can get the teroids in. Hang in there!
