30w0d High Risk Appointment

I feel much better now. The visit with the high risk OB went well. Our little girl weighs 3lbs 6oz, which puts her in the 53 percentile. I told the doctor about the contractions, and she agreed with everything my regular OB had said. It was nice for the extra reassurance.

After that appointment, I headed downstairs to see my regular OB. She said she was glad I came in after having 14 contractions in two hours this morning. My cervix still look great. And now I am relaxing - I am done writing down the time of every contraction and will just make a note of it if they become more frequent or intense than what is normal for me.

I did freak out a little when I got home because I had a bunch of bleeding and passed a clot. I called my OB's office right away, and they said it was caused by the exam. And, 6 hours later, there is been no further bleeding.

So, tomorrow I am off to New England for my shower! I am so excited!

I would love to talk to you! I'm 15 weeks pregnant w/ Atypical CF and Bronchiectasis. Wondering how much you struggled with your lungs while pregnant? I've been sick for 7 weeks spitting the junk up.

I had an 'irritated uterus' starting at 21 weeks which we only knew because I also had a bleed sending me to the ER. After that, about 22 weeks I started having contractions and a few weeks later ended up on meds for them.

I contracted even with the meds, much like you are describing, all the way through. My high risk OB didnt think I would make it until thansgiviing and I ended up being induced a day overdue.

I dont plan to take the terbutaline if I am so fortunate as to get pregnant again. I know another one like myself and she did pregnancies with and without it and being on them never delayed her labor any at all.

One thing I would look into with the knowledge I have now is magnesium levels. Low magnesium which CF'ers are prone to due to a number of factors including antibiotic use is related to muscle contractions.

I would be very interested to know if you have low magnesium.
