On March 6, 2013, I was admitted to the hospital for pre-term labor. I had NO IDEA I was having contractions. But I was and they were affecting my cervix. I went through endless rounds of medicines to stop labor over the next 12 weeks on hospital bedrest. It was the hardest and one of the most challenging times of my life but also the most amazing time of my life. I had to focus on how strong I was and not how miserable I was. It was a life-changing experience. Telling myself that this was just a moment, a memory in my life. It really put things into perspective for me. I remember having my shows that I watched on a daily basis and looked forward to those. I played ALOT of games on my iPhone. I just tried to relax as much as possible. I took it one day at a time, trying so hard to not think about the future. I knew that each day I was there mattered and I would fight each day for my twins. I made it to 33 weeks and 6 days! I know you can do this, I know it!!!
