That's great to hear meggOla! Were you on bed rest or medication? I hope I'm a success story like you!

I was on a sort of self-imposed bed rest because of bad swelling (see photos on the bump pics thread), but was only restricted by my OB from 30-34 weeks after I ended up in the hospital with possible PTL. That's when they discovered I was starting to dilate and efface. At that point I had the steroid shots for the babies lungs and they put me on a med to slow the contractions during the 48 hours needed for the steroids to take effect. Other than that I was not medicated for them. I did have them through out and they got stronger at the end as I and the babies got bigger. I was definitely off of my feet for the last month or so that I was pregnant, which I think probably kept them in a little longer.

Also - just keep telling yourself that every day and every week that they stay put is a victory. That's how I got through those early weeks when I was so scared they were going to come early. It's still crazy to me that I went from almost having them really early and facing NICU time and all that to begging my OB to schedule my c-section and put me out of my misery!
