"I am not a homemaker because I had too little ambition or education to make anything else of myself. No—I am a homemaker because God has given me the infinite honour of being a wife, and I delight in employing every ability that He has equipped me with in this glad career. I LOVE BEING HOME."

Guess where I am

I am sitting by my couch taking a break from folding laundry, yes that is right I am back home. So i am home with out a baby:( since the amniotic sac seams to have mended itself, my ultrasounds have showed increased fluid each day, and I have not developed any type of infection , my OB sent me home to cook this little one for a bit longer. For those of you who do not know the amniotic fluid is basically the baby's pee and it increases everyday. As long as I do not leak the water will return to normal levels.

It was sort of frustrating because I was being told that I would be induced so I was preparing myself for that. Now I am home so I am quickly readjusting. I still have to go to the OB tomorrow to make sure I am still infection free, but other than that things will be back to normal I guess. If I do develop an infection, or leak anymore I will be induced.

I am quite tired with the "unknown", but I do know that I cannot be preggo forever and I only have 5 weeks left till my due date.

Still here

I am still here chomping on ice chips.
I am on antibiotics 4 times a day for infection.
I am super sensitive to it so I am not really keeping much down.
My mom as the littles till tuesday.
If I do not go into labour or get induced before then, I will be all alone:( because DH will have the kids again.

I will update again tomorrow.

Stop teasing

That is the first thing that we are planning to tell this little one when he or she finally comes out. I am blogging from the hospital high risk unit. My water broke yeasterday morning. I stayed in bed all day and went to triage at about 7 pm. This is my third time here in less than 2 months. It seem like I had a high leak that has now mended itself. I will be here for at least another 48 hours for them to monitor me for infection and possible induce tomorrow ( when the baby will be 35wks). I got induced with Hannah at the end of week 34 so I am not too worried.This is so tirersome because me being here affects my three kids who miss me,my mom who leaves work early and my husband who misses work at both his jobs "just in case" the baby is actually coming.

Well anyways I must go back to bed now, please pray for us.

Our hopes and prayers are that the baby will either arrive safely this weekend or stop teasing us with these tiring false alarms.

32 weeks

I am so glad that we have made it this far, our babies are usually early arrivals ( with the earliest being 24 and 28 weeks).

I just hope that the next few weeks fly by just as quickly as the past ones have. We thought that my bed rest would end this week but apparently I am to take it easy for two more weeks. That is a bit nerve racking, the house is a mess, there is a mountain of laundry in each bedroom and the storage closet. On top of it all the computer is going to the shop tonight and will not be ready until sometime next week. Being on bed rest was boring enough but now with out internet I guess I will be knitting up a storm.

I never thought I would be so eager to clean and do laundry but honestly I cannot wait.

I spell LABOUR with a "U" in it because I am Canadian and we do that.
