The night before I reached 24 weeks, T and I celebrated with sparkling pear juice in bed … in REAL wine glasses! Well we did the same tonight, except we were in the hospital and had to ask the nurses to hunt down some little plastic punch cups for us.
So here we are at 30 weeks and I should’ve been ecstatic, but instead I was pretty blue most of the day. I won’t get into the many reasons as to why, but the kicker was learning that one of my fellow pPROM mamas gave birth to her baby girl last week at 30 weeks and lost her. Being 30 weeks, this is very tough to swallow and it launched me into a good crying session. Thank God my husband was around all day to once again pick me up.
We went for a wheelchair ride outside and this time I even remembered to bring some pretzels for the sparrows. Except there were no sparrows. Feeding the birds has become a favorite hobby of mine here at Abbott, but they were nowhere to be seen. What, did they already fly south for the winter?! Last time I was outside it was summer, but today as I rolled across the pavement, I smelled and felt a new fall season in the air. It will be a summer to remember, that’s for sure.
The day ended better than it began. Dinner with my husband, snuggles with my dog, cherries and sparkling pear juice for dessert, and a movie. What more can a girl ask for? Plus, I got a good laugh watching Tyler try to get the bottle of juice open. He finally did, but not before I managed to catch the entire struggle on video. 🙂
Happy Labor Day everyone. Thankfully, I am showing no signs of labor, but am definitely showing! How did I get so HUGE?! Lets not worry about that right now and instead, focus on the beautiful growing baby inside of me. So so proud of her. Oh, and the picture with the Kotex? Lets just say I should’ve bought stock in the company.
