Belly Pic and Update

So the belly continues to grow - the pictures at 28 weeks. The baby is measuring 2 weeks ahead of schedule which is a good thing. I'm still having all sorts of issues though. Last week I had to go into the hospital to be monitored since I was having regular contractions. They did another ffn test which was negative and there were no other signs of labor - just the weirdness of contractions every 6 minutes. I'm still getting the hormone shots, which may be causing all the heart issues and dizziness. I went to the cardiologist and basically just got more tests scheduled. I'll have to wear a heart monitor to see what's up with all that. I'm hoping it's all just strange pregnancy/hormone related stuff. So I'm getting along. I still don't drive because of the vertigo and limit going out because I get so worn out (and dizzy, can't breathe...). I feel huge and am tired of not doing much of anything. Anyway, that's the status at the moment.

I stumbled onto this site while reading your emergent church site. I wanted to give you some encouragement. 25 years ago I too was on hormones to prevent early labor and it was miserable. I was hoping that in 25 years medicine would have improved the drugs used for this; but I guess not. So the encouragement I want to give to you is that what is going on is 'normal' and I'm glad to hear that you are being taken care of by doctors. Don't be shy about whining. This is an uncomfortable way to spend the last 3 already uncomfortable months of a pregnancy.
By the way my 25 year old daughter is a joy. The drugs worked and in the end that is what it is all about.
