Today I achieved the milestone of reaching 32 weeks. If I would not have gone home before, I would be going home today. But I’m not. To commemorate the 32 week milestone I had an ultrasound this morning. Okay, it wasn’t really to commemorate anything, but the doctor ordered it, so I went.
Things I learned because of the ultrasound:
1. Baby Gaby will not be a bald baby. She has a lot of hair. Any guesses as to the color?
2. Baby Gaby weighs 3 lbs. 15 oz. That measures at 31 weeks 6 days, so basically right on track.
Today makes 1 week since my return to the hospital. Two (who am I kidding? more likely four) weeks to go until I get to go home again – if I last that long.
Dr. Schweichler came to see me this morning. She didn’t really have anything new to tell me. She did say that it is great that I’ve made it to 32 weeks. Do you realize this whole thing started 10 weeks ago tomorrow?
I get my progesterone shot today. I used to get it Wednesday nights, but things got switched up with my brief hiatus at home. Now I get it Monday mornings. So at 10:00 (or so) you can think kind thoughts. Speaking of shots, I have gotten 5 shots of terbutaline since Friday. Two on Friday, two on Saturday, and one yesterday (Sunday). Can you say “pincushion?”
These pictures are from a couple of days ago – Saturday. Rachel and Jeff came to visit me, and were here when my lunch arrived. Rachel saw that giant rice krispie treat, and made herself right at home. Jeff ate some of it too. Thankfully they left some for me.
