Hello everyone. First off, let me say that the quads are already grounded. I am serious. They caused me to miss my first Broncos' game in well over 7 years. Turns out, it was a good thing that I missed it. Yes, the Broncos and the Tide are on losing streaks and I am unhappy with that. Anyways, now I will explain why I missed.
Monica thought she was having contractions. She noticed her belly tightening and loosening every 4-5 minutes. (This was about 15 minutes before kickoff, we were getting ready to leave. She still wanted to go to the game, but I told her to quit being ridiculous.) So...we went to the hospital and checked, and once again she had proved her brilliance to me. She was, in fact, having contractions. They hooked her to a fetal monitor to measure the contractions, and she was given a shot of Terbutaline in the muscle to calm the contractions. They gave her two doses, but the contractions didn't quite go away.
Dr. Elliott had her admitted so that she could receive IV magnesium sulfate. All of the medical personnel said that the medication may make her feel more uncomfortable, but it didn't. The only symptom that she felt was that she felt extremely hot. I concurred. She does look hot, but she didn't need the medication to make her look that way. She tested negative for fibrenectin, which is GREAT news. While she is there, they are going to do additional blood work, just to stay on top of everything.
They checked the babies heartrates, and they all looked good. It looked like they were having quite the party in there with all the dancing they were doing. (Another reason why they are grounded...they need to learn when we are upset with how our teams did). I asked about all the babies, and he said they are all looking good. I asked about our little Danna, and he said, "I would say that we are a little concerned about her weight, we are NOT nervous at all yet." That made Moni and me feel a ton better.
That is our newest update. It is hot off the presses. There is no need to worry right now. Moni and babies are all doing well. The contractions this early are completely normal in a multiple pregnancy. We will probably be going back and forth to the hospital throughout the rest of the pregnancy, so we will keep you all updated as soon as we are done there. We love you all, and can't wait to see everyone who is coming to visit.
