Week 34 and a Bright Outlook

Am I really almost 35 weeks? The safe period for the babies to be born in this hospital is right around the corner. I was told yesterday that on Monday May 14th they will be pulling out my IV and letting my body go ala natural! They also say I can go home but I seriously have a feeling that will not be happening. Last week my IV needed a refill and it took the nurses about 45 minutes to get it (never happened before) and I started getting pretty regular contractions. So it is really an all play it by ear thing. But seriously, only 4 more days for me to endure in this hospital bed! Can I do it, yes I can!!

The past couple weeks have been a little rough. I started getting some major generalized itching..talk about ANNOYING! It got to the point where I couldn’t sleep at night and was tearing my skin up. They have given me about 4 liver tests and have concluded that I have Obstetric Colestatsis. It is getting better now that I have the correct pills to take and some creams to put on. For once, about two nights ago, I slept pretty well! That for sure is one thing I miss, since at about 9 30 in the morning I am almost falling back asleep again. I was watching CNN the other morning and fell asleep; woke up 30 minutes later sitting up and my mouth hanging open, haha!


Tea time!

Not only have I had to endure that, but now they have been finding light protein in my urine so I have to give the lovely pee sample every day and get my blood pressure checked 3x a day and yesterday the dreaded catheter (2x!!). So far everything is remaining stable.

This momma is so ready to be finished. I have at least 10lbs or more of baby in me now and they are getting stronger and more cramped everyday. Although I will miss being able to see and feel feet and hands trying to poke out of my belly and looking like a Beluga Whale, I feel it is soon time for them to come into this world. They need a good stretch after being cramped up for 9 months!

Thank you to everyone that has helped me get through almost two months of hospital bedrest. Thank you Grandma, Grandpa, Lonnie, and Linda for your cards. There is nothing like getting words of encouragement. Thank you to my parents for providing me with some more stretchy lounge pants for my ever growing belly. Lastly, thank you to my Husband and his family for all the care you have given me and Ian. Each one of you has helped me pass these days without completely going crazy. Thank you!
