Doctor's Update

Being in the hospital I don't see my doctor everyday but I do see one of the doctors within his practice, its usually a different doctor everyday. A couple of days ago I started asking every doctor "what's the plan?". Of course each response I got was "I'll have to talk to Dr. Ivey about that". After getting that response a few times I started insisting that I see Dr. Ivey or someone that could give me an answers. Well today Dr. Raines came (who I really like, she reminds me of Dr. Appleton-my College Station OB), as she walked in the door she said she was here to find a reason for me to deliver. Finally someone with news I like to hear! She said the plan was to deliver June 23rd at 36 weeks if nothing has happened before then. That was before she checked me and said I was dilated to 4cm and effaced 90%. She just looked at the nurse and told me 36 weeks was probably not going to happen but on the other hand I've been so unpredictable the whole pregnancy who knows what will happen. She also requested several blood test to check my bio acids, liver, etc. With multiples I'm at a greater risk for preclampsia and already having the cholestasis they are just trying to keep an eye on all of it for the safety of the babies and me. The last blood test they took apparently had slightly elevated levels so if the levels are still increasing it could be another reason to deliver. All said and done I had a little uncomfortable exam, gave 3 vials of blood and received an overload of information but we could have babies within the next few days or week! Now I don't know if I'm more nervous, scared, or excited! Nothing is scheduled yet, they want to wait until I show some sign of labor or they get blood result that may indicate its time but the impression I got from Dr. Raines is it could happen soon. I will try to post something as soon as I can or have someone make a post for me but check back soon :)
