Last post

I am going to stop writing this blog and only continue to write in my family blog. This blog was just for my pregnancy and now that I'm officially done being pregnant forever I'm only going to keep up with one!

Hospital stay

This is a picture of Leah in her isolette - she's glowing blue from the bili-lights. She had an IV and to wear the glasses to protect her eyes.
We ended up having to put the girls back in the hospital Tuesday evening. We went to the pediatrician for a visit and had to have blood taken for bilirubin levels and they were extremely elevated so the girls were admitted to LGH for two nights to bring them down. It was one of the most awful experiences of my life. I literally didn't sleep the first night at all trying to take care of my girls who were trapped in the isolettes. I don't have much time to write but we're back home now and trying to get settled...we never got settled the first time we were home. I'll write more when time allows.

I go back to the doctor this afternoon. I really don't want to go and am still a little confused as to why they want me to come in. I think it's mostly because of my contractions yesterday being 4 minutes apart and they want to make sure that I'm not dilating "quietly". I did everything possible last night and now this morning to try to make things progress. I'm getting ready to sit on the ball again and then push the kids in the double stroller for a little walk.
Grace told me this morning that she's sick of waiting for the babies to come. too Grace, me too! Then she stuck a ball up her shirt and waddled around pretending to be me. ;)

yet again

I went back to the doctor today. That makes it the second time this week. I'm still 3cm dilated. I was only supposed to have a regular appointment today but the doctor sent me over for an NST since he could feel that I was contracting. Sure enough they were every 4 minutes like clockwork, however the "shape" of the contraction wasn't regular so they sent me home. Grrr...I'm not too pleased about that. AND now they want me back in tomorrow afternoon to see if my cervix has changed any since one more centimeter and they won't send me home....I just have to get to 4. I'm doing everything known to man to try to get to 4. Only time will tell.

Matt goes back to work tomorrow - over 2 hours from the hospital. I'm scared yet again and going to be anxious every second that he's away. Thank goodness for Molly being local this weekend. She will be my saving grace if I need a ride to the hospital since the kids will be with my Mom. Here's to hoping that if I end up going into labor this weekend that it's after Matt comes home at 6pm...then I have from 6pm until 3:30am when he leaves to go into labor!!!

1st trimester all over again

I can't believe that I feel like this's like I'm in the 1st trimester again. I have "morning sickness" all day, and am extremely tired all the time. Matt starts work again on Friday so for the next two days we're going to try to get labor started any way we can! I took a walk last night and it increased my contractions but not enough. I just need my water to break!! We are going to go to the park today - the kids will like it...we'll just have to bundle up! Maybe I can swing a baby out! Just kidding! I'm also going to clean clean clean as much as I can. I don't want to do so much that I'm even more exhausted than usual but we want so much to meet these two little ladies!!

I'm 3cm dilated. They won't do anything to help me along until 38 weeks. That's two weeks from now. The thought of being pregnant for two more weeks makes me want to throw up. Grace and Evan were born at 38 weeks exactly and were 8lbs3oz and 8lbs13oz. Lovely.
