A very LONG few days but very thankful

I woke up this past Sunday morning with painful contractions. I really wasn't thinking much of it and just stayed home and rested. I had decided to go to work Monday morning and call my OB from work. I called and they told me I needed to come to the hospital right away. We get checked into the hospital and it turns out I was in preterm labor with 2-3 minute contractions and dialated to a 2 which I should not have been dialated at 33 weeks. I went through several painful medications to slow down the labor but nothing was working. On Tuesday morning my OB came in my room and told us we needed to make a choice to stay at St. Anthony or go to Mercy where there is a great NICU because they thought I was going to have this baby girl that day! So we decided to go to Mercy. I got off of all the medication and the contractions started to get worse but Lord willing nothing else happened. To make a long story short we have finally come back home last night. I'm back with my regular OB at St. Anthony and saw him this morning. He has put me on bedrest and is really not sure when our little girl will decide to come. We are just thankful for each day she stays in the oven longer! Keep us in your prayers and come visit me at home!!
