A glitch in my plans

Somethings just can't be controlled. Like babies! My day yesterday started with big plans - a little cleaning and organizing, then I planned to move on to some fun school stuff for Levi and making up some cookie dough for the freezer. But at lunch all my plans came to a screeching halt when I started having serious "can't talk through them" contractions. So it was off to the doctor, where they stopped (just like when you take your car to the mechanic and it suddenly doesn't make that noise anymore). Everything is fine - it wasn't officially labor. But my cautious doctor started me on brethine anyway to be on the safe side - I really want to keep this little guy on the inside for a few more weeks! The brethine is working like a charm on the contractions, but, boy! The side effects are something. I'm shaking like a leaf! If all goes well today we'll ease up on the dosage tomorrow - but for today I guess I'll just deal with it. At least it's amusing the kids:)

Whew! Glad everything is fine and hope you're able to get back to the things you were wanting to do.

Sarah - Thanks a bunch! I'm so looking forward to cutting back on this medicine tonight. Insomnia is not fun when I'm not nine months pregnant and chasing three littles all day:)

Thanks so much, Holly. It was good news at the doctor - everything looks good and I'm almost 36 weeks so it won't be much longer before the whole issue is kind of beside the point:)
