Here we are....another day in paradise. Today I hit 26 weeks where the girls have a 75% survival rate. Each day I get through is better and better for the survival rate. At 28 weeks they have a 95% rate yet they will still need to spend at least 6 weeks in the NICU after being born at 28 weeks. I still have my sights set on getting to around 34 weeks or more. My hospital stay will be 2 more weeks from today if all goes well. My sister will be moving in with us the weekend before I am set to be released. She will be able to help me stay on the couch and rest as I am supposed to.
Yesterday I got to have along shower and feel a little normal, but today I am tired and run down. I did have several visitors and math homework to finish yesterday so maybe my body is run down today. I'm free from all the IV's and wires for now. They still need to monitor my contractions for 1 hour twice a day. This morning I had 4 contractions while I was sleeping and I didn't feel a thing. For the most part, I don't feel the contractions and that is why I need to stay in the hospital for monitoring.
Overall the hospital is not that bad. The food choices are nice and I like that I am waited on hand and foot. The TV shows are getting old but I am usually too tired to read or spend much time on the internet. The visitors are a nice break from the slow day, but other times I like that I don't have to entertain anyone. My spirits are good and I am hopeful for a positive outcome. I can't wait for the day I get to hold my healthy girls in my arms.
