Day Four

Day Four: Sunday February 17, 2013

Well, Sunday was certainly a day of rest!  It was a very slow day.  My highlights were having the sacrament brought by, and my family in the evening.
I go to church every week and take bread and water to remember Jesus.  I have never had it blessed and given to just me, always a congregation.  It was special.  I don't have all the answers, but I do trust in a loving God, and try to be a good person, though I know I fall short.
The boys came last night, and there is a small lounge area here that I can walk to (still on the OB floor).  It had a few toys, a couch, and a table so we turned it into "home" for the evening.  I sure am missing those boys of mine!
I also deleted thousands of emails from all the way back to 2008!  My inbox has never felt so clean!

Today is Day Five and it too is proving slow.  It's 10:40 and my taxes are done!  That was one goal for the day.  I actually filed them incorrectly (left out some income) and had to do an amendment.  It's been a pain, but I believe they are ready to mail in (you can't efile an amendment).  Two states and a rental property, plus Josh did some independent contract stuff made things messy.  Next year should be more straight forward.  Honestly, I'm just glad they are done.

Talked with my high-risk doctor.  She reassured me this is where I need to be, and that baby should be taken at 36 weeks max.  We have an ultrasound on the 27th to determine if the date needs moved up sooner (but it will not be pushed back).  Hopefully, he grows to 36 weeks, then chances of him coming home obviously increase.  He does look so strong and healthy, and despite the circumstances is getting what he needs from the placenta, cord.  I feel like I'm bonding with him more and more.  I get to often hear his heart beat, concentrate on his movements, and ponder what his name will be.

The more often we hear our baby's heartbeat the more I feel like we're having a conversation. The heart is such an amazing organ. I'm glad you're getting this bonding time with your baby.
