Never out of the woods with this "journey"! Ugh, can't sit back and relax for one moment and think it's all safe.
On Wednesday my waters broke. Quite a bit earlier than expected! Called the maternity assessment centre who checked me over and confirmed my waters had broke and my cervix was open 1cm, and admitted me to the labour ward.
Luckily have had no other signs of labour (apart from minor "uterine activity"), but they have been monitoring the twins since then and I am still in hospital in the antenatal ward now. Main risks are infection and, of course, very premature birth. They have said that if I go in to labour they won't stop it, so just have to hope they hang on in there a bit longer and also don't get an infection. As - if they get an infection, then they will definitely have to be dragged out.
Have had the steroid injections to help the babies' lungs, magnesium sulphate to protect their brains, and antibiotics to help ward off infection.
Just going to be on bed rest now until they come. Yay..... won't be doing that maternity photo shoot I had planned! And really need to ramp up getting everything ready as it is looking a lot less likely they will make it to the 37 week mark when they were scheduled to be coming out.
Lots of love
