Happy Update!

HELLO 25 weeks! I FINALLY just saw my Doc and it was worth the weight. He does his rounds later so he can spend more time with patients. Usually you're lucky to get 5 min... I had 45! I wish I could tell you how much I love my doc and that I have a REALLY, REALLY good doc. He's one of the only ones around that would even do my revision surgery. So He's pretty optimistic that I'll be here for many more weeks and that I could easily make it to 30. (granted, other things could always happen, but he's not expecting them too yet) I am back on monitoring, 2x a day 1hr each on the 'contraction' monitor just to make sure since I felt a little tightening today. Granted with all the stress and anxiousness... I'm chalking it up to that. He is also just fine with me having a VBAC, but out of the four Docs from his practice that round... 1 will not let me, 2 will and 1 flip flops... so I told him he needs to give me his schedule so I don't try and labor if he's not here.

I also get wheelchair rides now.. FREEDOM! WOOHOO!! up to 30 min a day.. SO EXCITING!!!!

I can't tell y'all how relived I feel. I had really worked myself up today and just had an emotional day but thanks to my awesome husband, who sent my pillow down with friends (and to my friends for bringing said pillow), and a little ambien.. I should be much better tomorrow!

Next up 26 weeks!

Alright you get wheels now! I'm sure that will help with the time going by too! Getting out of that same area will help! 26 weeks here you come!

Tracy, I'm happy for the great news! I love hearing from you daily. I would like to come visit some time. What day/time is good for you? What are you craving (food or activity)? You are a trooper and doing so well being patient!

Love, Britt
