It’s been a month since I was admitted to the hospital and put on strict bed rest and I’m honestly getting so tired of it and could not wait to go home. Two days ago, I was hooked back up to an IV because I’ve been contracting a lot and I’ve also been hooked up to the monitors 24/7 since then. I thought they’d do the c-section because of it but thankfully, the meds slowed the contractions down. My OB thinks that I won’t make it until the 18th – she thinks I’ll go into labor before then & that we’d have to do an emergency c-section because these contractions could make me bleed again.
However, 9 more days left before my scheduled c-section so I’m crossing my fingers that Jelly B would stay put until then or at least wait until tomorrow when we’re full-term. Despite all these whining, I’m very thankful that I made it this far without losing my sanity or going into depression. I’m proud to say that I managed to keep the positive attitude and I really thank my husband, my parents, my son, and most specially God for that.
Michael’s getting very excited for Small Fry #2′s arrival and has been working a lot to make sure that he’s got everything covered before he goes on paternity leave. A couple nights ago, he worked until midnight and started working again (from home) at 6:00 AM the next day!
I know that he’s been really tired from working long hours and running errands but he still put aside some time to give me back rubs and foot/leg massage almost every night! I hope this doesn’t come across as bragging but I just really believe my husband deserves some recognition for everything that he does for me and our family. ♥
