Failure is underrated

This morning I took the fetal fibronectin test. (I don’t recommend it.) It’s one of those tests where at this current time, a negative result is good. I took the test at about 10:00, and the results came back two hours later. Yay! I failed! That means that there is a 99% chance that the baby will not be born in the next week to 3 weeks. Tomorrow I am having an ultrasound, and if they like what they see there I will be able to go home. So I’ll be back in my own comfortable bed.

If I do in fact get to go home, which I am starting to feel confident about, I will be under a lot of restrictions. I need to duplicate my hospital lifestyle, meaning that I still have to stay in bed all of the time. I can’t pick up Rachel, I can’t do laundry, I really can’t do anything. When I get my discharge instructions I will ask in more detail about my restrictions, but everything I have heard so far, from both doctors and nurses, is stay in bed, don’t do anything!

Stay tuned for more news tomorrow.
