A taste of things to come!
Well today was interesting! Today we were "supposed" to go in for a non-stress test and a growth scan to see how much the baby weighs. Easy right? Nope! This morning after a light breakfast of cheerios and apple sauce we got to the hospital on time and started the non-stress test. Lisa had already been contracting all night long which prevented any kind of sleep and was needless to say very uncomfortable. Toward the end of the test the ladies (that made it clear they are 49er fans) noticed that Lisa was contracting a lot and determined that the ultra sound we had planned on going to was going to have to wait because Lisa was ready to go. After they found me (they thought I was sitting in the waiting room, I was sitting but not in there) we went to Labor and Delivery to check her cervix out and see how far along she was so we could call everyone and they could be here for our daughters coming out party. After waiting for about an hour they finally checked her and said that her cervix was still closed but more than likely she would be giving birth within the week. Although we were a little bummed that we would not be meeting our little girl today it is probably for the best that she can stay inside for awhile longer (even if it is only for a few hours or days). This also gave Lisa a chance to get over a little of the fear she had about giving birth. So after going back for the previous ultra sound that we had missed (which was preformed by a very RUDE tech) we came back home and took a nap! Now after eating a very good dinner provided by the RMH (God bless these people!) and finishing decorating our tiny tree we sit and wait. Lisa is still contracting but not quite as bad as before, but still consistent. It's only a matter of time!
