Pregnant after IF

Update-discharged (long)

Thanks for all of your kind words- I really appreciated them! We talked to two people from the NICU last night which is typical if there is a chance you will deliver early. I know I needed to hear all of the information about what to expect but it was very scary and overwhelming. I was/am trying really hard to be positive but I just broke down in tears and all I could think was "it's not fair!" It took us all so long to get here can't we just have relatively smooth pregnancies? DH was great and supportive and then we spent a couple hours watching tv to take our mind off of everything. I had a good few hours where I had no contractions at all (had been having 1-3 an hour) then unfortunately they picked up again and I had a few pretty close together so they put me on all the monitors again. We started to see a pattern that if I needed to pee I was having contractions and they would often stop or slow after I went. This morning they ran a urine test (guess they ran something right at admission so either they did it again or did something else) and think I may have a bladder infection though they need a few more days for all the tests to come back. In the meantime they are going to start me on antibiotics. I hope that stops things! 

So I am home and will start antibiotics tonight. No work this weeks and will follow up with my OB to make a more long term plan (bed rest, follow ups, ect). I hope to keep this baby cooking as long as possible! Thanks for all your thoughts!
