Well, nothing's changed.
Baby is still lying across my uterus - it must be very comfortable cos it sure isn't interested in changing position!
I'm mostly finished the crochet blanket now. I'd take a photo to show you but I'm currently hooked up to this
Daily monitoring of baby's heartbeat and it's currently pitter-pattering away happily. Always so lovely and reassuring to hear.
My lunch is waiting for me (and smelling surprisingly good) on the tray in front of me. Cruel really to do the daily monitoring at lunchtime. I have to stay hooked up for 30 minutes...
Austin and the boys came to visit yesterday and they had their dinner here. Needless to say my bed was covered with fried rice and pear by the time they were finished. But that's ok because I don't need to worry about washing the bedding AHA!! LOVING that aspect of hospital living!
They watched a DVD while they ate. ANYTHING to keep them still and not running through the ward of labouring women...!
I was presented with a pile of paintings the boys did for me which are now proudly displayed on the wall in my room along with the roses they gave me the other day.
I'm feeling the love!
Still missing being home dreadfully but I know baby and I are in the best place.
Two more sleeps until Granny & Pop arrive WAHOOOO!! It will be a massive relief once they get here as I know it's been hard-going for Austin doing the single parenting thing. He was so shattered and fed up when they visited yesterday. And I understand that feeling! That's usually how I feel by the time he gets home from work each night!! So he really did have my sympathy. And he's SUCH a great dad, I know the boys will be fed, bathed, read to, tickled, chased, bottoms wiped, noses blown, cuddled and kissed in my absence.
Once again Aunty Gretchie has come to the rescue though and is with the boys today while Austin gets things cleared at work so he can start taking paternity leave.
I do worry a little bit about Luca as he's been quite 'out of sorts' at school and at home, lashing out at school friends and at Beni, not taking turns and sharing (which he is normally very good at!) so this concerns me... I don't like to think my enforced hospital stay is making him sad and unsettled :(
So anyway that's the latest from me. Seven days down, seven to go - unless baby turns or contractions start before the deadline...
SURELY it's time to take this monitor off and I can eat my (now cold) lunch???
Thanks again for your love and care! I'm feeling it baby XO
