Sorry I have not updated as soon as I should have. I know a lot of you have been calling and wondering how everything went at my Dr. appointment.
First I will let you know a little about the weekend. On Saturday dad, Robyn, Bill, Wendy, Jose, Sal and I worked on things around the house (and 3 wild children). We carpet cleaned, organized, cleaned out the van, worked on laundry, packed and ordered jewelry on eBay. (Compliments of dad... Thanks dad!!!) We grilled for dinner.... Thanks Sal. No one let me do much of anything and that was very hard to just sit here and watch everyone. I have been having a lot of cramping and lower back pain so it was a little easier to sit because I know I need to stay off of my feet to help keep this little bundle inside. Thank you everyone for helping out on Saturday. We had a fun day and got a lot done and it helped me be at ease...
Sunday Robyn, Bill, Kelly, Jose, Sal and I had a nice ham dinner and then did some more work around the house. Of course I still had to stay off my feet so I stayed home from church to make sure and not over do it by being out and about. Kelly brought supper over which was yummy and it was nice to not have to cook. So we pretty much got everything done that needed to be done before the baby came. Thanks guys for coming over and helping. It means a lot to us...
Monday early morning I had my Dr. appointment. I only dilated to 3 (from being at 2 at the end of last week). I guess staying home and off my feet helped. My Dr. did say that I might want to call to the U of M and tell them where I am at for dilation and that I have been having a lot of cramping. She thinks I should maybe see if they want to induce me Thursday or Friday instead. I will call them tomorrow and see what they say. I will let you all know.
Today we brought home a lot of pop tabs that some of the kids and staff from Ashley's school collected. It was very fun for Ashley to get those and it helps her to feel more a part of everything that is going on. The rest of them should come in by Thursday. The support from the St Cloud Christian School has been wonderful.
For now just keep praying for things to go smoothly and for this baby to hold off until it is time to come. Your prayers are so appreciated and very needed.
Thank you to all, Steph
