I went in for my appointment today, and MIRACLE of all miracles, she said I wasn't dilated at all! So either it really was a miracle, or the nurse at the hospital did not assess me correctly. Either way, I'm pretty much in the clear! Baby looks perfect, and everything else looks great too! I will be going in for weekly Dr. appointments now so she can keep a close eye on me.
For the next couple of days, I'm supposed to just take it really easy. If I don't have any more 'symptoms,' I can actually go back to work...just no lifting. And no lifting at home either. Which I think is good, because I feel like I've already 'dropped.'
Walking out of that office today, I felt like I was on cloud 9! I could not be more happy! Such a relief! I just think it was good for me to APPRECIATE my pregnancy, and I really just think I will be grateful for every day that goes by that this little guy is still in there!
Again, thanks to all those who have been so willing to help me out during this CRAZY time! A special thanks to my parents, Grandma, and the Bitters for the delicious food that kept my family fed so well while I was down over the weekend, and to all of those helping with my kids this week! WE LOVE YOU!!!!
