the story: part two

After a few hours of sleep Ashleigh woke up again Wednesday morning with increasing contractions. They started the iv fluids and again the contractions slowed down a bit. As the day progressed it seemed the contractions were mild unless Ashleigh needed to get up and use the bathroom (which was every 15-20 minutes) with all the fluids running into her. At 3:30pm she had an ultrasound to check on the baby and see if there was any further dilation (1cm on Tuesday). Good news! The baby looked great, gave a high five in utero and Ash was still only 1cm. She got another steroid shot for the baby's lungs and continued the iv fluid and antibiotics through the night...
