Alright followers....

Today's OB appointment didn't go well. I failed my Biophysical Profile because my amniotic fluid is too low. My blood pressure shot up. I had 4 contractions in 30 minutes of being on the monitors. And the doctor said it will be a matter of days not weeks until she comes out. He also said that if I was 38 weeks pregnant instead of 36 weeks he would have had me in the OR today at noon delivering her. As of right now I have an appointment again on Friday, Monday, and Thursday. He thinks there is a good chance she will come this weekend though.

Now that the holidays are upon us they are bringing on the stress and emotion. I think the holidays provoke emotion, good or bad, for every single person. This year we are celebrating Christmas without Jess' aunt and paternal grandfather. We are also celebrating the holiday knowing this is probably our last with Jess' maternal grandfather. That alone brings on add in several meals with family that hates that Jess is gay, doesn't acknowledge our unborn child, and has so MANY judgments and watch emotional overdrive. Now these emotions may not be some of the best ones to feel around such a wonderful time of year, but they are also riddled with emotions like excitement, love, and happiness. We have two wonderful, beautiful children that help show us the excitement of the holiday. We have the excitement and love and happiness associated with already being parents and the impending birth of our first daughter together. Jess and I are also surrounded by family and friends that love us and accept us just as we are which makes those that don't fade into the background of our consciousness. We are so thankful for our year. We thank God for so many things and pray that 2009 blesses us just as 2008 did. We pray that your family is doing well this holiday and you are in our thoughts and prayers as we enter a new year.

Hospital Visit #4

Here are some pictures of Julia with max tonight in the snow! Plus an update on us.

Last night I was in the hospital until 3a.m. I was feeling short of breath and having cramping so I went in after Jess and I put the girls to bed. They checked my BP, it was great. They checked my pulse ox and pulse rate, both were okay. Peanut's heartbeat was awesome. They did an EKG and it came back normal. I was having contractions lasting a minute and a half to two minutes every 3-4 minutes. I kept getting asked how much I weigh and had all sorts of comments about my weight which totally offended me. My contractions slowed down and stopped on their own...only to pick back up once I got home. They treated me with an albuterol inhaler since I've had asthma and they couldn't think of another reason I was short of breath. My blood work showed an elevated white there is an infection somewhere in my body they just don't know where nor did they seem to care really. So now I'm just waiting till Thursday to see MY doctor...hoping the contractions stop and the infection isn't anything serious.

Oh My Goodness Gracious!!!

I have been complaining a LOT lately about how uncomfortable I was and how much my body hurts. I couldn't figure out why I was being such a huge wimp about this whole pregnancy thing. Well I also didn't realize I was the size of a small house! Yes I do still have EIGHT weeks left of growing to go until my due date. All I can say is Oh my goodness gracious!
