Thurs Feb 12...FUN NEWS TODAY!!
OK, so not only is today another wonderful milestone...25 weeks with the boys today!! BUT, I also got some really fun and exciting news from my OB this morning! She said I'm probably getting cabin fever stuck in the hospital, so she is okay with me going out on day passes!!!!!! WOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! The very first thing I thought of were my dogs!! My OB said that for the first 7-10 days she wants strict watch, but now that we have passed that she is comfortable with me getting outside for a bit during the day from time to time!!!! So I said "I can go home and see my dogs?!" And she said "definitely! Go hang out on your own couch for a bit!" But there are three rules: 1) I HAVE to be feeling good enough to go out 2) I HAVE to be with an adult that drives 3) I HAVE to stay in Saskatoon So I'll have to ask the nurses how it all works...if I have certain hours I'm allowed to be out and when I have to be back. I'll still be a resident here and this will be my primary "home"...but to know I can "escape" for a couple hours and relax at HOME...AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH...I am so excited!! So I've already got my first outing planned! Saturday at home with Brett and my dogs!!!! Perfect for valentines day!!!!! All I want to do is grab a couple of Fuddruckers burgers and watch a movie together at home!!!! I can hardly wait!! My OB did tell me that she will be away for the next 10 days! YIKES!! One of her partners has been briefed and is aware of our plan should I go in to labor in those 10 days...but I am PRAYING that this is not the case! I really want MY OB the one delivering our sons IF that should happen! So now REALLY I don't want to go in to labor in that time!! Brett has already "requested" no labor for the next 2 weeks...so I guess this is just more "confirmation" that I can't go in to labor before March! hee hee hee. Let me tell ya, I've been having chats with our boys daily! My next ultra sound is either next Tuesday or Wednesday. Hard to say when you are a "home-dweller" here...they just kinda grab you with an opening. So the new OB will be reviewing the results. Praying that the boys are growing freakishly well...we are praying that even though they don't typically fatten up until closer to the end of pregnancy that these little guys will somehow just gain gain gain! I just feel so happy today!!! It just feels like such a glimmer of hope and joy. Part of me is nervous to leave the hospital...even if it's just to go home to lay on my couch there for a couple hours from time to time. But knowing I'm a 5 minute drive and my OB is feeling comfortable...that helps. So today is a good day. Good news, beautiful milestone, dinner with our friends here at the hospital tonight...ahhhhhhh, it's nice to have happiness in the day!! Thank you thank you thank you Lord!! I needed this!!!!!!
