Update

Thanks for all the sweet comments and concern!  I went to the doctor this morning and they did an ultrasound to measure my cervix (sorry if thats TMI!).  Everything looks good and there is nothing to worry about!  The fFN test that they did in the hospital on Saturday that came back positive is just a preliminary test.  A positive result doesn't always mean anything but it could mean that you will go into labor fairly soon.  When you get a positive result they pair it with an ultrasound and if the ultrasound looks good then there is nothing to worry about.  The pains I am having are just a result of carrying twins and doing too much, so I just need to take it easy and not do as much as I have been.  I am SO grateful that everything is still okay and that I don't have to be on bedrest!  I wish I had known that the bedrest would only last a day and a half, I would have enjoyed the pampering a lot more :)  Instead, I was worrying the whole time about what I would do if I had to be on bedrest for the next 13 weeks! The first morning that I didn't get out of bed with Daci, she was so sad.  She kept pulling on my arm and saying, "Mommy, I want you get up! Come downstairs with me!"  It broke my heart!  It was so hard to explain why I had to lay in bed all day and not be with her. Rick was so amazing this weekend. He did all of my work, plus his own.  Daci was so well taken care of, and I was treated like a princess.  So grateful for a wonderful husband, daughter, family and friends! Love you all!

I am so happy and relieved that everything is okay! I'm sure it is scary to have those pains and then have that positive test result. But thank goodness everything's okay. I'm glad you're going to take it easy. You will be plenty busy once those little peanuts are here.
I'm so glad you have a sweet husband who will take such good care of you!

So wonderful. You should probably take a few more princess weekends within the next thirteen weeks.

So glad your okay. Take it easy. I hear you on the these little toddlers that want you to do something with them and you just can't. It's my least favorite part of being preggo. It just breaks my heart to tell my boys no all the time. Let me know if I can do anything for you
