27 weeks, 7 days pregnant: This was a big day for me with my second son. Around 7:00p.m. I started having heavy contractions. By 9:00p.m. they were a minute a part and starting to hurt. I went to Proctor Hospital where they started an I.V. My husband was out of town. The magnesium wasn't stopping the contractions so I got transferred to OSF in case the baby came early. Yikes! It was scary! I think the ambulance ride made things worse. The contractions finally died down in the middle of the night. All I remember is the mag makes you cold and icky and I was absolutely freezing all night! My mother-in-law was in town and she slept-or tried to sleep-in a chair all night. I stayed on magnesium for two days. My cervix was shortened and funneling at just 28 weeks gestation.
