Be careful what you wish for

So, you know how much I have wanted to stop working, well the good news is I am off work, the bad news is that I have pre-term labor.

I was not feeling well at all Weds. night and Thurs. so I went in to the dr. sure that they were going to say I was crazy again, but this time I had started dialating and am 70% effaced. Not good. Especially since the doc thinks that I am 1 week behind where I think I am which puts me at only 34 weeks 2 days. I went to the hospital where they told me that they would give me a shot to stop the contractions (every 2 min) and put me on modified bed rest but would not aggressivly stop labor since I am far enough along that the babe should be fine. All I can say is HOLY SHIT! I am not ready to be a mother! I am terrified of giving birth! I am SO FREAKED OUT! we have no crib.

I want my mommy.

Deep breath in, deep breath out. How exciting and scary at the same time! You'll do fine, and good luck!

Holy shit indeed! I had a dream a couple months ago that I finished work on the 1st, and gave birth on the 2nd! Weird dream, cos bubs popped out and I tried to push it back in... But that's another story!

Hope all is going well for you and the bed rest isn't too taxing. I know I'd find that harder than going all the way up to 42 weeks.

Ditto Amy's comment. Plus, you are totally ready to be a mother, and I've known babies who slept in car seats their first few weeks home, so don't stress about not having a crib :) Good luck with the bed rest, and hang in there!
