Today was a very rough day on my blood sugars. Dr. Kirshon decided to put me on a different drug to help stop contractions. I started to have more contractions. The contractions were not very painful, but my doctor was being cautious. He decided it was time to start Terbutaline.
(Terbutaline is a β2-adrenergic receptor agonist, used as a fast-acting bronchodilator (often used as a short-term asthma treatment) and as a tocolytic to delay premature labour. The inhaled form of terbutaline starts working within 15 minutes and can last up to 6 hours).
This medication has really had an effect on my Blood Sugars. It has made them high. So that has been a little discouraging today. We shall see if my body ajusts to this medication like they say it will.
I was excited to see my Mother and Father In-law this eveing, they helped brighten my day. They are about to embark on a full time mission tomorrow. They have been called to serve in the louisiana, Baton Rouge Mission. So we won't see them for a year and a half. It was so nice to be able to see them and visit with them before they left for their mission. I wish them the best.
