The Scare

On November 28th I was admitted to the hospital with contractions. They were coming every 4 minutes.

I stayed in the hospital for 5 days and I'm thankful the doctors were able to stop the contractions and, at the same time, administer the meds needed for the baby to sustain life if it were to be born. But it would have been too early.

We're hanging in there (literally) as it seems this baby might come any day. The doctors seem to think its wishful thinking that I will carry full term. I am hoping we can make it till New Year's, as baby will be 28 weeks then.

The husband and I realized we never took any pictures together with the bump, so last night before we got into bed, we took a few pictures (just in case). The baby bump marks week 24.



Yes, I am fully aware of how huge I am for someone just about to start her third trimester.








Go ahead and make fun of my pajama pants. I'm on bedrest. I'm allowed to look like this.

Hey, this must be so exciting for you guys :) I can't wait till I (or we) "get there".

So you've moved? Hope you're doing well in your new homeland :)

I want to tag this picture "BOBO!!!" Unfortunately I don't know how. I'm thinking of starting a facebook group called "Where's Bobo?" dedicated to finding and tagging pictures of this baby. Seriously, you don't send enough pictures! How am I supposed to live vicariously through you if you don't send me visual clues?

Kristina - thanks for the well-wishes! Yes I MOVED!!! I have to tell you all about that at some point. I hope you're doing well too :)

Nits - I promise to send more pictures on a regular basis. The reason why I'm not taking too many is cause I look like a blimp. I've gained something like 20 kilos since I got pregzo. In that sense you don't wanna live vicariously through me. No, not at all.
