So all of a sudden I'll be 32 weeks on Monday! I cannot believe I've been here over four weeks. At this point when I go into labor, the docs wont even try to stall or stop it. We can finally go back to being excited about the trio's arrival rather than being scared and apprehensive. AND even if they came today, they would most likely only have to be in the NICU for 3 to 4 weeks max, which is way less time than we had anticipated. We are so lucky to be at this point, and its amazing what a difference 2 weeks makes in the prognosis. I still can't believe that we're about to have three babies. Its insane. Why has this not occurred to me until now???
Speaking of three babies, they are still moving and squirming and kicking like crazy. Even the sonographers can't believe how active they are for how cramped they are. I love feeling them bouncing around. It makes me laugh as I wonder what the crap they could possibly be doing in there.
I still have a constant stuffy nose that I think will stick around as long as I'm pregnant. Its beyond annoying and Im afraid of blowing my nose too hard for fear of knocking something loose. Someone finally noticed the nearly empty bottle of tums on the nightstand and said "why didn't you tell us you were having problems with heartburn?" They ordered Pepcid for me twice daily and I feel much better. Now I dont have to worry about getting tums dust on my remote and computer keys anymore! I still feel really good. I do have some bouts of discomfort- mostly trying to get comfortable or just prop myself up more when Im sitting in bed. All things considered, though, Im dang lucky. WAIT- I did have fat leg syndrome for about 2 days. My right leg was literally a size bigger than the left. To be sure, they did an ultrasound to make sure there was no blood clot, and there wasn't. There's probably a baby sitting on something that is restricting the fluid return from that leg. Now I wear these leg massage/wrap things while Im in bed to prevent swelling and clots.
Craig's Parents were so nice to bring the entire Easter dinner for all of us to eat together here in my room. As much as I whined and said it was "totally unnecessary," it was really nice and I'm glad that they did that for me. And in celebration of the new Clash of the Titans, I ordered the original on DVD and Craig and I watched it together after dinner. A dang nice holiday for being hospitalized:)
Craig continues to work hard on getting everything painted for the babies' room. I just have to get home to decorate, wash all the babies' clothes and set everything up. Thank heavens I'll have a little time to do it all before they come home or I'd go nuts. Bless Craig for coming every night to visit me even when he's exhausted and has so much to do at home and at work. Hopefully the next few days or weeks (EEEK!) will go by fast and we can be together as a family soon:)
