Is it possible to have this many "good" days in a row? I think it is!
So, I had my second shower today!!! Yesterday's instructions were cleared up, as Dr B left for vacation. I get to shower daily and can use the potty chair for ALL bathroom visits. Talk about big steps! I feel sooo much better just from those things. I am drinking like a fish, too. I drank 5 pitchers yesterday and I am already about 3 into today. I'll hit 5 by tonight, I think. And, here's the best news, NO CONTRACTIONS. At all. None since Wednesday night.
Dr. M. came in today to say hi and that she'd be caring for us while Dr. B. is away for, gulp, 2.5w. By the time he comes back, I will be across that viability line... My line in the sand... THE line. Wow. He says he fully expects me to be pregnant when he returns. That means he thinks I will be pregnant into my 25th week... That gives me a boost of confidence. But what is better is that I think I will be pregnant, too. The babies are so active and I feel good. I know we are still living day to day and ultrasound to ultrasound... I realize that Tuesday's upcoming u/s might reverse all of these priviledges or that I may start to contract hardcore even with all my water consumption. These are possibles... I know that... But they arent permeating my thoughts. Instead, I feel light. Like "we can do this."
We talk to the babies. We tell them what day it is and how far it is until October and November. The reasons they dont want to be born in Aug or Sept. How Nov is best but that if they want their own birthstone, then the end of Oct will be okay. They just move under our hands as we talk... Listening, I like to think... Counting down the days until their birthdays, too... Understanding that they have to wait "a little bit longer..."
So, it is good day. I know that our sweet Nick, Sophie, and Alex are watching over and playing with Bobby and Maya... Keeping them safe... Living through them in a way... Telling the little bambinos to just "stay put". I thank them every day for that. I know they are with us, too...
Thanks for all your prayers and good wishes. Hopefully, we will continue to share good news!
If I am offline for the weekend, please dont worry. :) When Peter is here, I dont get on the computer. It is the precious little time we have together. So, I may post briefly or not at all. Dont worry! I know we are going to be okay. :)
