36 Week Update

Finally! I'm posting on the same day of the event! It's almost as if life is returning to normal before the storm!!! It's been an interesting couple of days. On Sunday night (Jan-4) I started having some pretty hard contractions every 4-6 minutes for about 2 hours. I didn't want to get out of bed to see if I was supposed to be doing something, so I just waited for them to go away or get worse. Lucky for me they went away until the next morning. I called my doctor's office and they told me to go to the hospital to get checked out. The contractions were still pretty hard, but not as hard as they had been in the middle of the night. Turned out that I was starting to dilate, so the doctor on call put me on "relaxation" orders until I could see my doctor at my appointment today. We just got back and my doctor is not worried about it, but wants me to continue to rest and drink lots and lots of water. If I go into labor now they would not stop it and the baby would most likely be a preemie, but strong strong enough to come home with us. At a minimum I would like to make it through Brixie Lee's birthday this weekend. Most likely everything will be fine and we'll have our scheduled c-section on January 27th. Here's the latest pick and you'll notice that I'm not holding Brixie Lee in any of these pictures. One thing every doctor has said that I need to stop picking her up. Sooo hard!
