I title this with the title seriously?? out of my total dissapointment that things are not turning out the way I had hoped. On Saturday morning my water broke... seriously strange feeling to not be able to stop what feels like peeing your pants.. anyways after confirming at the hospital with my midwife that yes that was my water we were off to Winnipeg. The local hospital will not deliver pre 36 weeks and at 34 + 6 days I am out of luck.
Surprisingly enough after being seen at Women's I was admitted with the hopes of 48 hours of IV antibiotics and a shot at going home as long as all was well. I was always under the asumtion after 24 hours they want the baby out. But I knew that if I could hold him in for another week I could possible deliver at the hospital in Winkler.
It's been a long weekend.. hard and today was especially lonely. My whole family came yesterday and my good friend who lives here has really shown up.. bringing along starbucks, sushi, and treats for the boys yesterday. I was overwhelmed with love yesterday.
Fetal assesment went well this morning. Baby J is doing good. Strong, moving, about 6lbs already.
The plan as long as tonight goes well is to go home tomorrow on pretty much bed rest and most likely be induced at 36 weeks (so anytime after Sunday) Today I am 35 weeks +1 day.
I am hopeful I can keep him in there and we are hoping against all infection so we will both stay safe.
Hopefully tomorrow I will be blogging from my couch at home.
Thanks for all the love. We - especially the boys need it!
