An uneventful day!

After my wonderful exam yesterday afternoon they decided to leave me on the contraction monitor to see if I was in labor. Well I had several contractions but they were not consistent enough to indicate labor. Since I had so many contractions another doctor came in with scrubs, my first thought was he's taking me to labor & delivery but he was only here to do another exam (lucky me)! He wanted to see if the contractions were causing me to dilate more. He didn't think there were any changes so he thought the dilation could have happened over the last couple of weeks which means it may take me a while to continue dilating.

Some of my lab results came back last night. The liver test came back a little elevated and my platelets were low. The doctor didn't think it was significant enough to "cut" meaning they weren't going to take me into a c-section because of the levels. The nurse said they will keep watching it and probably draw blood and run more test in another couple of days. The other test have to be shipped off so we will not get those back for a few days.

After such an exciting day yesterday I thought for sure today would be an eventful day. Well I couldn't be more wrong! My contractions are nothing like they were yesterday and I don't feel any different. The nurse told me any little change I feel the doctors will be here checking me but just my luck I had nothing to call them about. The doctor did tell me this morning that they probably will not let me dilate more than a 6 or 7 because they do not want to risk going into a vaginal delivery. For now it doesn't look like anything is going to happen anytime soon but I still think when it happens it will happen quick!

Just checking in to see how you and the babies are doing. Sounds like all is well and you are doing a great job. I saw your grandparents on Sunday at the hospital in San Angelo when they and about 20 more of us were visiting with Uncle Alfred. Here's hoping they bring lots of pictures of the triplets to the Schwartz family reunion on July 4th! Good luck, girl. I can help on weekends after the babies arrive and I'm not too far away. (San Antonio)So have Pam get in touch with me--jan@avigolf.com (210)508-2560. God bless. Janice

Adrienne, I'm so excited for you! You're going to love being a mommy...it's the best thing in the world. The feeling you get when finally seeing the babies you've been carrying around for the past several months is amazing. It will be here before you know it. I can't believe my little girl is already two months old...
