Pregnant after IF

Apparently I don't know how to edit a post, so here's an update

OB came in this morning and said that I'm still contracting at least every 7 minutes, and that's WITH drugs every 3 hours. She said if he was head-down she would have no problem sending me home on bedrest, but since he's footling breech it's far too dangerous to have me at home where my water could break and his cord could come down first. She said he could die very quickly if that were to happen :(

Needless to say, I am NOT willing to risk anything, so it looks like I'll be living here for the long haul! Hopefully I can keep myself busy/distracted. I'm sure you ladies will  help with that :)

I hope everyone is doing GREAT! And I can't wait to see bump pics this week.

Our 1st IVF miracle, Briggs Sterling, born via c-section due to IUGR and footling breech. 6.5.11. 5:51am. 5lbs 1.5oz.
