Default Wife Update 6/3 -- new development

http://discussions.texasbowhunter.co...ad.php?t=81757

Update....

Last 7 weeks, my wife has been on bedrest which has kinda turned our lives upside down with 2 other kiddos at home. Ages 4 & 2...

Everything has been going good up until today. She went to her doctor yesterday and everything appeared to be fine and dandy. They called today and said to make our way to Labor & Delivery so she can get an Iron treatment. Her iron levels were extremely low and that is not good for her or the baby.

We get to St. Lukes and of course it takes 2 hours to get the iron treatment from the pharmacy. In the mean time, they have hooked her up to monitor her and the baby and they did not like what they were seeing. She was having contractions every 4 minutes!

Nurse comes back and informs us that we are now guests at St. Lukes and my wife is now being given magnesium sulfide in an IV to stop the contractions. Don't know how long she is going to stay or if they are going to decide to go ahead and take the baby.

I sure thought we were in the clear. Original plan was to have the baby July 6 which was about 2 weeks early. Now who know.


Please continue all of the prayers. My wife and I thank the many of you who have kept us in your thoughts in this exciting, but nervous time.


Maybe this is some of the reasoning behind me being so "crabby" lately..(as my good fishin' bud up told me the other day....all I can say is...."MY BAD"

Many prayers going up for yall - bed rest is tough - can't imagine having 2 little ones running around. My wife did bed rest for 8 weeks and our son was almost a month early when the induced - he and momma are doing great - have faith in the Lord and the doctors - everything will go according to the Lord's plan.

If it any consolation to you early contractions can be slowed down , my ex, Katherine had to be put on bed rest too and on an IV drip to stop the contractions until we got to 36 weeks which is technically considered full term, 40 wks is ideal..the day after they took her off the IV, she delivered Adam who will turn 8 on the thirteenth of this month...he was a little light for birth weight , but he was a very long 19 1/2 inches and healthy as can be..Everything will be fine, trust in your faith and follow the doctors directions to a T...I know what you are going thru...prayers up

prayers sent for you and your family, I can't imagine being on bedrest for as long as she has, if I counted right it should be about 6 weeks until the original due date, my first daughter was born 6 1/2 weeks early and is now 4 and completely healthy. I'm sure everything will be fine. Good luck

Prayers sent. My wife was on mandatory bedrest with both sets of twins. That can be very stressful for all involved. The magnesium can be tough on the Mrs. as well. We will keep your family in our prayers and please update us when you can. God bless.

Yep, right on the money. Saturday she will hit the 34th week mark. The concern is with the lungs. We went through this with our son 2 1/2 years ago.

BOTH SETS OF TWINS?? Noooo, this is not stressful compared to going through that...lol

The Magnesium Sulfate is some bad stuff. One nurse called it "flu in a bag." Wife is having a hard time with that stuff. They just took her off to see where her contraction rate is.






Doctor just left and they are bringing in a High Risk OB Specialist. Everything is looking good. Her EKG checked out fine (had to have that because of a heart murmur). Concern is with her uterus getting too thin. With 2 previous C-sections and the second one being somewhat iffy (sp?) it is a big concern with it rupturing. They have told us of some options. One being delivering next week, another is an amniocentisis to check the baby's lung development..and the other is to keep her in the hospital under controlled environment for the next 5 weeks. OUCH

I'll keep you posted.

Prayers sent! My 8yr old son was 6 weeks early! He had some problems with his lungs(not enough cerphacton, probably misspelled), we spent several weeks in the NICU, till they got him up to par with his breathing and his weight. He is still a smudge smaller than most kids his age, but other than that he is as healthy as a horse, and you would never know his life started out so rough! I'm sure your wife and soon to be new child will be just fine! Keep us updated!
Good Luck!
