for christmas/birthday i got a new camera, the canon 60d. so bare with me since today was the first time pulling it out of the box & learning how to use it! i also didn't realize that when you buy an older home... the lack of natural lighting you have in all of your rooms! bummer. i had to do quite the photoshop fixing to make the pictures lighter!
earlier this month, around 35 weeks i had an early birth scare. i was having contractions every 2-4 minutes for a couple hours. i kept ignoring the thought until i called my OB & they said to rush in. i'm delivering at the murray hospital which is no five minute drive, so i called tyler to get off work to head up to the hospital! after hooking me up to track my contractions they confirmed i was really contracting that often. so they gave me an iv & multiple bags of medicine. my doctor came down to delivery & labor to check & see if i was dilated or effaced. indeed i was - dilated to 2 centimeters & 50% effaced! which freaked me out even more, realizing this baby could come any day. we hadn't even had my baby shower yet! i immediately went home & online shopped like crazy.. crib sheet, rug, monitor everything!
they sent me home on strict bedrest & medicine that would stop the contractions. those were the worst, i got horrible migraines taking those huge pills three times a day!
i am now 38 weeks, hallelujah! after my last appointment being dilated at a 3 & 70% effaced my doctor scheduled me a day to deliver five days before my actual due date. (what?!) i have heard from so many people that they wouldn't induce you until you were atleast 41 weeks with your first baby. i got pretty lucky i guess! february 11th is the day! next week our baby girl will be here & we couldn't be more excited. tyler & i sit in her room often picturing how things are going to change drastically. we have grown so much closer over this last month, watching my husband prepare to come a dad. we've really tried to cherish all the moments with just him & i.
