This is Rob writing. I was able to spend 3 hours with Dana after work today without kids thanks to my mother and mother-in-law. She is getting rather restless...would love to walk around the hallways or outside, but is confined to her bed. We had several heart rate decelerations with one of the babys this afternoon which prompted the doctor to give her a shot of betamethasone in the hip. She'll receive another shot...same time...same place...other cheek tomorrow. The shot is to help with lung development in case of delivery in the next 7 days. We obviously hope that's not the case, but is a definite possibility.
The doctor on call visited and said she believes the deceleration happens in just about everyone that's monitored constantly...that it's from the babies rolling onto the cords and compressing blood flow.
Contractions have been much better the last 2 days. No more medicine has been given to subside them.
We appreciate everyones help, phone calls, rides to and from, meals, and prayers. Please continue to pray for safe, growing babies...for peace and patience for Dana...for wisdom for those making critical decisions...and thanks for allowing us to make it this far.
