The next morning Doctor L. did a few more tests to see if anything had changed over night (which they hadn't) but still wanted to keep me until 4:00pm for my second steroid shot. We had an ultra sound scheduled for noon in the hospital which was really fun. We weren't able to see a lot of "Cute" shots of the baby because they were looking at all of the "medical" concerns, weight
(3 1/2 pounds) etc.
Thankfully I was released from Labor and Delivery around 5:00pm but was sent home with some pretty strict directions.
Best. Rest. Ugh!
I can get up to take a quick shower ... and that's about it. He said that he will take me off of best rest once I hit (if I do) 37 weeks which is 7 weeks ... 2 months 3 weeks or if you prefer 1,176 hours. I'm going to go insane ... BUT if it means keeping this little guy in my belly longer than I guess it's all worth it. While browsing Pinterest in the hospital waiting for my next dose of medication or next shot I came across this quote that helped me get past this little sad "Hiccup".
God's plans for your life far exceed the circumstances of your day.
I feel so thankful that our little boy didn't decided to make his appearance this week and that we have my contractions under control - I am also so thankful to have both of our parents here in St. George so we have someone to help watch our little boys while we've been going through this hectic month.
