A Trip To L&D

Well, what a fun day...

I'm home and the babies are still baking...thank goodness.

M. and I weren't sure that would be the case, in fact, we were told that we might be saying "Happy Birthday"!

I headed in for my doctor's appointment this morning with Miss O. in tow. My blood pressure was up, I gained almost 3 pounds since Tuesday, and I was still spilling protein, again. Enough to have my doc send me straight to labor & delivery for a NST and blood work. Her final words to me, "You're 36 weeks today, I'm not going to hesitate to take these babies at this point.".

After calling M., and having a quick cry, we headed home to meet him and head up to the hospital. Once there, they strapped on the monitors, drew some blood, and took my pressure. The babies looked good on the monitors and my BP wasn't nearly as high as at the office, and best of all my blood work came back okay!

I don't think I've ever been so happy to be discharged! I just wasn't ready to have these babies today. I really want them to have at least another week to grow and chunk up, you know?

More resting at home was ordered, and I will do just that...


  1. Glad you are able to keep them in a bit longer. Take care of yourself.

  2. Glad they're able to bake a little longer.

    Take care!

  3. You are almost there! And just remember, you have done an amazing job growing these kids, no matter WHEN they come out.

    You're doing great!!!

  4. You are so close to having them in your arms, but I totally understand wanting them to bake a little longer. We'll be thinking about you.

  5. I am happy to hear they can bake longer ;) You must be relieved.

  6. I'm glad to hear that they get to stay for at least another week!! Rest up :)

  7. I'm so glad that they're okay for a little longer! I'm glad you got to go home place like home right? ((hugs))

  8. I am so glad to hear that you get a little more time to get yourself mentally (and them physically) ready. That said, I can't believe you're at 36 weeks!!

  9. I haven't caught up- are you on bedrest too? Hoping they cook a little longer!

  10. Just a little bit longer :-) Thinking of you guys!
