I just got back from my appointment and am now home. It is amazing how exhausted I feel! It is not like I walk all that far. But, apparently, lack of walking over the past 12 weeks has taken its toll on me. I have the 10 month waddle going on but am only at at 7.25 (almost)! I guess the process of getting up, getting ready, getting in and getting out zapped all of my strength. What a little bed rest can do to the body!!
Obviously, my appointment went well enough to keep me out of the hospital. My numbers weren't great, 8mm, but they were no worse than 2 weeks ago. That measurement was following a pretty big contraction. Dr. B said, more than likely, if I was scanned for 3 hours straight, my numbers would be all over the charts. That comes as no real surprise, seeing how I have been doing this for weeks now...back and forth and back and forth! My contractions increased a bit over the weekend so I have had to take more terbutaline. I can definitely feel the effects of the meds more since taking a break from it, which is a good sign. My blood pressure seems to be tolerating Procardia well so I will increase my dose to twice a day tomorrow. Of course, I also got my weekly dose of progesterone today as well. I think I should open my own pharmacy... :) I go back on Thursday morning to see where things stand. At least that gives me a few days to work up some energy!!!
On a different note...the painting is done! I hear it looks really good but have yet to see it myself. And I still have no desire to cheat! Blake does not have strong opinions on most topics related to that room. However, he does NOT like it to be referred to as a "nursery." He thinks that sounds institutional. His preferred terminology is "the baby's room." What in the world??? I will just go with it and refer the the room across the hall as "the baby's room" from here on out. I guess it does sound a little sweeter! That boy cracks me up!!!
Speaking of the baby's room, my designers are here so I will go! Updates to follow...
