Almost 32 weeks...

Figured it's about time for another pregnancy update. Last week I started having some contractions. They put me on some medicine and that seems to have taken care of the issue for now. They weren't painful contractions (sort of like a tightening of my stomach muscles), and I only felt very few of them. But the doctor was worried and he wanted us to stop them.

Today I had another ultrasound where they took measurements of the babies and approximated their weights. Baby A weighed in at 3 pounds 13 ounces, Baby B weighed in at 3 pounds 12 ounces, and are you ready for this???? Baby C weighed in at 4 pounds 7 ounces!!!!!!!!! That is a weight gain of nearly one and a half pounds in the last two weeks for Baby C. I'm still in a bit of shock over that weight gain. Overall, the babies looked good on the ultrasound. I haven't heard from the doctor yet. He usually comes and discusses the ultrasounds with me at some point.

Other than that, I am still on bedrest in the hospital. I will stay here until the babies are born. I've reached (well, almost reached) another milestone of 32 weeks. So now the goal is 33-34 weeks. But the doctor has also said that once we made it to 32 weeks, he would probably let me go into labor rather than trying to stop it again.
