Sam is home and what a wonderful thing it is! This weekend I was able to put my feet up and relax while he cooked, cleaned, and took care of Bella alongside me – and I felt like a million dollars by Sunday. Instead of feeling like I was hit by a bus.
It’s nice to have the adult conversation and someone there to snuggle up to at night. I won’t tell you it’s all perfect, there are the times of both of us adjusting right now. He’s lived alone for 7 weeks and I’ve been in complete control for 7 weeks so having him home and wanting to take over some is rather – testing on us both.
But we’ll fall back into a routine soon enough.
Friday after he was home I ended up in L&D with such horrible lower pelvic pain. I knew it could be the cerclage but since I’ve had similar pain with both Bella and the twins, and it wasn’t a great outcome either time, my Dr admitted me right away. I chose the same hospital as my cerclage since they were so kind to me the first time, and once again they went above and beyond for me.
Everything turned out great and I got another look at our baby – face, toes, fingers, the tech let me see it all. She even paused and printed out a few really cute pics for me.
Including a “parts” shot. We’d already known 2 weeks ago but this new tech confirmed it again.
Right now we’re working on names for this little one. I have a couple I love and Sam isn’t so sure (sigh) so we’re still thinking. Plenty of time though.
Today is my day to write – so I’m at our local Corner Bakery with tea and a bagel working here and on Babble to get some things done. If I can finish, next up are the emails in my inbox that seem to be piling up and giving me the evil eye for lack of response.
Tomorrow I believe I start progesterone shots.
Wish me and my lower end luck. I’ve heard they are awful but googling them (oh, I google it all) and seeing the success rate after preterm labor really helped me to wrap my mind around having another shot every week.
If you want weekly pics and updates on this little one and life in general, you can find me over at Babble. Also I’m writing at She Reads Truth for anyone who would love to join this online Bible study for women – never too late!
