Lockdown. Day 7

I have officially been here on lockdown for one full week. I have to say that things aren't so bad. Home would be better, but for now this is my home and I'm trying to make the best out of a crazy situation.

The rundown.

The babies are doing great. All of the Nurses and Doctors are pleased with the outcome of the monitoring. Heart rates are strong and steady.

I am now on medication to stop the contractions that I've been having for several days now. I've been told this can stall labor for weeks. In the meantime, the medicine makes me somewhat sick, makes my heart race, and makes me shake like Michael J Foxx. (Excuse will I pack for my trip to hell.)

The nursing staff is fantastic, they are taking great care of me. They have been very tolerant of my visitors, contraband, and even let me have the Munchkin up here with me for a little while this morning for some much needed one on one time.

My view? It could best be described as the prison yard you see in Shawshank Redemption. Nothing but rocks, and the back side of another building. I can't even tell if the sun is shining - which, on the plus side allows me to sleep a little later.

All in all, things are going well. I miss my family, my home, and my friends, but in my heart I know that what we are doing is going to make a world of difference in the outcome of this pregnancy. What's that saying? If it doesn't kill us, it make us stronger? I'm gonna be a modern day Superhero! I will just need a little time before fitting into my skinsuit and tights.

We're all loving your daily posts these days. Try to stay positive! You get to do all those things you don't get to do at home. And, you will be getting two little girls out of this.
