Me on having babies, losing babies, trying to have babies and hoping to bring this one home.

Because, God Forbid, I Should Relax...redone

NST yesterday. Lots of contractions. Then. Now. Still. I knew I was having them, but I really only noticed before bed and occasionally in the car. Now I'm paying attention. I wish I could stop.

Doc did do a cervical check and so far it's just low and soft, not open. Thank God for small favors I guess. Right now we're just going to watch it and I'm to call if they get worse and try to stay off my feet. Ha!

Also had an ultrasound. That was great. She's* 5 lbs. already. Audrey was born about now and was 3 lbs. 3 oz. Small is a red flag for a problem, we knew Audrey was small but didn't know to look at it as a potential issue. I'm glad Natalie is where she is.

I don't really have much else to say. Maybe I'll try again in a day or two.

*...yeah, typo. Sorry for the panic attacks! Far as we know, still a "she".

Also, I didn't mean for this post to sound so pathetic. I'm really not upset, really. I'm just, well, I don't know. Not upset though. Maybe I'm just done. I'm done. If she's coming now, I'm okay with that. So long as she's alive. Now is okay.

Of course, her room is a mess and her clothes are either in need of washing or they need the tags off or both. Oh, and I don't have a bag packed or any idea what I would take to the hospital. So you know, that would suck. Maybe I should do that...just in case I have to ask someone to grab my stuff...

    It IS a typo, right? 'Cause, ummmm, I noticed too and was similarly taken aback.

    Sorry things are stressful. I'm sending hugs and good vibes.

    Five pounds at 34 weeks (?) is a fantastic weight. You actually sound to me like, under the circumstances, you're doing pretty well, but, of course, tone is notoriously hard to pick up over the internet.

    5lbs is great! I hope you are as confident as you sound in this post. I hate it when people say to me that they can't wait to see pics of my baby when he arrives, but I can't wait to see Natalie. I think that making it past 33 weeks has really been good for you. I'm so happy for you.

    Dear Michelle, it's wonderful news about Natalio (hee hee) being so big now. That must be a good feeling. The safe shore is in sight, my dear. Not much longer now. And if clothes and things like that aren't ready yet, it's no big deal. (At least that's what I keep telling myself!)
