"Yes, the babies aren't here yet."
"Yes, we're still aiming for the July 14th date." (Of course, my doctor might feel otherwise...I think she's taking it appointment by appointment at this point.)
Wow, I can't tell you how many times I've said those phrases since Friday. I don't remember it being like this with Miss O. and she was a week late!
On Sunday, I nested. Well, I nested as much as you can from a recliner with a bottle of water in one hand! Poor M., I was his "supervisor", telling him everything that needed to get done NOW and how I wanted it done. He was a great sport, and got almost everything on my list crossed off.
We were going to finish up Monday morning, but instead most of the day was spent up in Labor & Delivery again. I woke up feeling really crampy, nauseous, and swollen. I was also concerned that the babies were quite quiet, which is unusual in the morning. When nothing let up after a few hours, I broke down and called the doctor. She sent me straight up for another NST and some blood work. Babies looked great, of course. Surprisingly, I was having contractions. Not really big ones, not enough to change my cervix, but contractions, none the less. After about 3 hours of laying down in triage, my blood work came back okay and I was released to home. I have to head in to see my doctor in about an hour, so we'll see what she has to say.
I've been wanting to share some of the photographs that my friend took...if you stuck around this long, rambling post you deserve to see them!
I really wanted a family picture...I think this is my favorite!
Miss O. hugging the babies!
