Wednesday morning update

NOON UPDATE: Dr Hill came in and now they are monitoring Babies D and A. Good news is Kami has only had 1 contraction in the past hour!! She's also feeling a little better since they've lowered the mag.

The mag has started to settle in a little more on Kami. She is very groggy since the meds act as a strong muscle relaxer. She is still in good spirits and cracks a joke occasionally. She got sick and threw up a little around midnight but they gave her something for the nausea and she hasn't been sick since.

Drs Hill and Elliott stopped by this morning after reviewing Kami's charts from last night. All signs are good so far but still very touch-and-go. As of this morning, Kami's contractions have spread out to about 1 every 10 minutes. She does feel the contractions now - tightening in her belly and shortness or breath, but they are not painful. They are continuing to monitor several things via hookups, blood/urine tests, etc.

Dr E decreased her mag to 2.5 about 10am this morning. They've also decided to monitor 2 babies at a time just to make sure they're all doing ok. Currently they're monitoring Babies C and D and will do A and B later. The babies heartrates are down a little but that is to be expected since they're feeling some of effects of the mag as well.

I'll try to keep everyone up to date as much as possible. As always, we thank you all so much for the prayers! I've been saying prayers aloud with Kami and I can tell it makes her feel better.

I have been following your site for a while but have not commented yet - sorry. I am Sheri and a mom of triplets. I just wanted to let you know how excited I am for you!!! Also, when i was expecting my babies I spent 9 weeks in the hospital and 6 weeks on the Mag. It is yucky, but works great! Hang in there. You are doing FABULOUS!!!! :)
