    I'm praying for you and the girls, st!! My daughter was born 32 weeks early and you can't even tell. At the same time I was in the hospital, there was a mom who had twins that were the same age. Those boys are doing fine now.

    It's a busy day at the hospital...they are backed up and I don't have a room yet!
    I want to get started on my meds so they have a better chance of staying put.
    I didn't even have a bag packed...my mom bringing all toiletry items and socks.
    Couldn't wash their clothes or set up rest of room :(

    32 weeks isn't bad at all.

    I was born at 26 weeks, so I might just be comparing 32 weeks to my 26 weeks and going "hey not that bad"

    But everything will be perfectly alright. Even if they come out now, nothing bad will happen.

    Don't worry about the room or the clothes. Your mom and bf can put a load in the laundry and as long as they have a place to sleep that is all you need. Hang in there, girl!

    My good thoughts are going to you. Thanks for letting us know, and keep us posted. I would be glad to come over and set up the babies' room, but you are too far away.

    WooHoo! Breathe...Breathe...Breathe

    if they are allowing you to eat...THAT is a GOOD sign.

    If you are even a POSSIBLE delivery..NO EATING at ALL!

    (Man...do I remember THAT! I craved a donut - of all things- SO badly!! The nurse told me... "you have a choice. Donut or a baby. You can't have them both." And as much as i love my son...the donut was almost chosen. :p )

    ST, you stay put and don't move around too much. Tell Aliyah and Alexis it is not time just yet.

    You're doing great. I'll be up another 3-4 hours if you need someone to "talk" to. Can't wait to see pictures of your beautiful, healthy girls (in a couple more weeks!)

    I hope they get the contractions under control so you can sleep comfortably. Stay positive - let your mother do the worrying for you.
