Well I am 26 weeks and 4 days pregnant. That only leaves 10 days until I am released if all goes well. Brea has come to visit with me today and we actually wrote these days and dates on the board so I can see the days tick away and have my immediate goal in mind. Brea has been here all day staying with me for about 10 hours. I almost felt like I was at home hanging out with my friend and her baby rather than being in the hospital. Every once in a while a nurse or my contraction monitor would jolt me back into reality. Some days I just want to sleep and be alone but other days it is really nice to have a friend or family member here to keep me company. I'm so glad Brea can spend the entire day with me while other friends, family, and my husband have to work.
I got to take a wheel chair ride outside. Flowers are in bloom here in Phoenix and I almost felt like I was smelling the flowers for the first time. It is already almost 80 degrees here in phoenix so I was blinded by the sun and very warm, but I enjoyed every second of our 10 minute walk.
I had a good contraction report today. I hardly had any all day which is probably the best report I have had since I've been here. Things are really looking good that I won't have these girls before 28 weeks and I will get to go home in 10 days.
Jesse and I will try to take tour of the NICU tomorrow to get an idea of how they run things and see a few babies that were born close to our gestational age. The NICU does tours based on their schedule so we don't know if we will be able to get in tomorrow or not. I hope that my babies will bake for a while longer and the girls won't have a long NICU stay, but at least I will be prepared for any situation if they do come early than expected.
