Hello Foot, Meet Mouth

Monday, January 31st, 2011 by by

Yea, I really helped myself with my last blog post. *insert eye roll* I was bragging about how wonderful everything was going with this pregnancy, and low and behold. BAM!! I stuck my foot in my mouth and ended up in Labor & Delivery. The reason? Surprise, surprise… Carter was trying to make an early appearance! I think I have four of THE most impatient children and no clue where they get it from. ;)

So after 7 hours in the hospital, a shot of terbutiline, some IV fluids, etc..etc… I got to go home extremely exhausted, but thankfully, still pregnant. It also reminded me that I need to get on the ball, seriously. It’s not like trying to have my babies early is a surprise for me, so I’m trying to figure out why I’ve procrastinated on getting prepared for Carter. Luckily, I didn’t have THAT much left to do, and I’m almost done (now).
Hopefully I’ll be pregnant for another 2 weeks (plus), and next time I make a trip to L&D, I’ll be far enough along to have him and not have labor stopped. I am very excited to meet our newest addition, however, I think I can’t wait just a bit longer until he is fully “baked.” :)
