A few more Pictures

A few more pictures of Audrey.  She had to spend a little extended time in the nursery yesterday afternoon because her blood glucose was a little bit low – not much, just a little bit.  She just wasn’t eating enough but was much more interested in sleeping.  When we first saw her about 3 hours after birth, the nurses said that was the first time that she had been quiet – up until then she had been fussy, but when they brought her in, she just laid there and tried to sleep.  That meant of course that she wasn’t much interested in eating, and therefore the low glucose.  So, they kept her in the nursery for a couple of hours and made sure she was eating.  Of course, she ate plenty for the nurses, but, as soon as we try to feed her, all we get are messy diapers and half-hearted attempts.  Unfortunately, she didn’t get to meet a lot of or her visitors who came in Saturday afternoon because she was in the nursery.

38 weeks today

I went to the Dr. today for my 38 week check-up. She informed me that I was still only 1 cm dilated but I was 50% effaced. My blood pressure us elevated because I am sooooo over being pregnant!! If Audrey hasn't arrived by next Friday (June 19th) she is going to induce. I will be 39 weeks on next Friday. Lets hope that she decides to come before then, but at least we have a plan. I hope that I can stay sane until then.

37 weeks and counting

We had our 37 week Dr. Apt today. I was hoping for better news. She told me that I was only dilated to 1 cm and that my cervix was very LONG ( what the heck does that mean). She told me at LEAST another week. I keep feeling every little pain thinking it is labor but of course it is not. The only real place I can get comfortable to sleep has been on the couch, but it is so lonely without Jer. Bella does come down periodically to say hi and see if I will play with her. Other than that I am doing well. No swollen ankles, no high blood pressure and no weight gain so I guess we are in it for the long haul (as if 9 months is not a long haul).
