Six more sleeps.

I get to go HOME! In six more days! I found out on Monday that they will let me leave here on Monday the 7th! woohoo! The days have slowed to a snails pace now. I swear the last two days have felt like a week. BUT, I GET TO GO HOME!!

My roommate had a scare over the weekend. Saturday night about 2am she called for the doctor. When they examined her she was dilated with a bulging sac from Baby A. Back to labor & delivery she went. They were talking c-section. She couldn't get her husband on the phone and she was terrified. She was 27.4 weeks. When the doctor told her she had a bulging sac I cried my eyes out. They all left to get things set up for her in L&D and I went over and held her hand and told her to take a deep breath and to be strong. Not much else I could do....I wanted to go to L&D with her. I felt so helpless.

Thankfully they put her back on the magnesium and were able to stop the contractions. She will be 28 weeks tomorrow. Every day just seems like a blessing. She came back on Monday. So far so good.

Hey did I mention I get to go HOME on Monday the 7th? Yep, I do. Home Sweet Home. I will still have to be in bed for at least another week and the terb is coming with me...but I'll be home and that will be perfect. I'm hoping at some point before bub comes they will let me up and around a bit. Right now my legs start shaking while brushing my teeth. I'm a little worried about how I'm going to push this bub out, as well as hold it, feed it and care for it! I guess like everything the past 9 months, we will figure it out.

The crib arrived on Saturday. The bedding is on the way. The trophy stroller is in transit too! Oh, Figlet, it's green! R has been nesting away and it seems the house, hahaha did I say HOUSE? more like the room is as set up as it can be for now.

Now we just have to decide on a boys name and we'll be set. This is the least of my worries, I'm still feeling pink and that name is set.

P.s. Not that I would know...but apparently there is a major heat wave going on...I had a good laugh when they said on the news tonight that in order to conserve energy, to avoid a black out or repeating the horrible situation we just had in Queens, the Mayor has turned off the lights on the Empire State Building! wow. What a sacrifice. uh, Mr. Mayor how about turning off the lights in Times Square? Now THAT would be a statement. As long as those lights are shining it will be hard to convince anyone to turn down their AC.

I know you must be excited! That was so sweet of you to do for your room mate. I'm sure she appreciated it more than you'll ever know.

Almost. There. Breathing...
And R is nesting? that just rules. The bub at last check was bigger than a lot of full-time babies I've known recently!
