ross and i both ended up with some kind of bug sunday night that made us really sick. i started the evening with the throwing up and he still doesn't fell much better. i probably only feel better because they gave me meds to stop the nausea.
this time i was in the hospital because i had been throwing up for a couple of hours and my contractions kicked in. at 1:15am i was pretty sure we were going to have to make the cross town trek but i called into the dr. just to be sure. the dr. agreed that it was probably a dehydration issue but because of my high-riskness ( not a real word, i know) we had to go in. it was a good thing i did because the contractions were actually pretty big and painful.
they gave me magnesium sulfate all day to get them stopped and thankfully it worked. i am back on my other meds now and might be able to go home this afternoon- if not then tomorrow morning. i might still make it to henry's graduation!! that's what i am hoping for.
this baby is quite the wild one. it never likes to be monitored which can make for fun times. about every half hour a nurse comes in to readjust the monitor...this means rare uninterrupted time to sleep. my nurse last night finally just let baby stay off the monitor for a while so i could get about 4 hours of sleep. that was great. when baby was moving around in dramatic fashion yesterday i just smiled and thought about how much i am looking forward to meeting this little one.
often times life is so busy that i forget we are having another baby but with all this focused attention on this pregnancy i have been able to really anticipate who God is making this little one into. who will it look like? what kind of temperament will it have? is it a boy or girl? when will it get here? will it be chubby and have lots of hair?
Lord, i know you know the time, day and location for this baby's birthday. i trust that you have all that figured out and so i will rest in knowing that You have it all under control. thank you for being the man with the plan!!
