    So yesterday I saw my ob and we decided to just put me on strict bedrest and to take Terbulatine if I get contractions. I'm allwoed a maximum dose of 3 tablets a day. Well last night went well but i woke up today to some contractions at about 630am.


    I started drinking fluids and took the first tablet...nothing helped. Took the second tablet.....still contracting. Just took the 3rd one about 25mins ago and STILL contracting. I'm having about 5 or 6 in an hour.

    On top of the contractions this medication makes your heart race and makes you very shaky. I feel so crappy right now...:( I'm shaking as i type this and I feel like throwing up!!!:cry:

    I rang my doctors office.....but they just got in so I'm sure it will be alittle bit before they call back. ARgh....i'll probably have to go in!!!

    Thought i'd just update you girls incase i get admitted. I'm just so annoyed with all of this and really stressed out.

    If they check me and my cervix hasnt changed at all thats a great thing.....but these contractions need to stop!!!!!:(

    Thanks for listening to me.....you all are so wonderful.! :hug::hugs:

    Just spoke with the nurse about 10mins ago. She said to drink, drink, drink and dont get up AT ALL.....and wait and see what happends in the next two hours. If I'm having more then 5 contractions in an hour after the two hours is up then i need to call back and we'll go from there.

    i just hate it though that my heart rate is 180bpm...it feels terrible like i'm having my SVT attacks.:( It sucks and im nevous and shaky. I'm so worried for my little one and i just wish they could get these to stop and frankly they dont seem as worried as i am....umm i'm 19wks 2days....so very scary.....and have a pounding headache.

    Thanks for all your wishes. I will keep updating for now.

    Oh Gabs, I'm so sorry you are having to go through this my lovely... :hugs: :hugs: :hugs:

    I really hope things settle down... I'm sorry there's not more we can do to help you, I hope you have plenty of help and support and just try to keep your chin up, a positive outlook can be quite a powerful thing when medical stuff is concerned, I've always found. I know that is SO much easier said than done...

    Massive :hug: my lovely, take it easy and thanks so much for keeping us informed.
    Thinking of you.
