For today's Show and Tell I have a little bit of everything. As most of you know, I am on strict-ish bed rest with the triplets and am counting the days until viability begins (24 weeks) and today is ten days to go! I installed a really useful Ap on my iPhone that counts down for me, so the exact time remaining is 9 days, 13 hours and 17 minutes. Not that I am excited or anxious.
The good news is that the higher dose of Niphedipine seems to be helping with the contractions, but I am still having them. They have told me more than once that four an hour is fine as long as it is not ALWAYS four in an hour, but if it is six in an hour that I need to be seen. Hoping that they stay under that and I can coast into my Monday appointment with a long and strong cervix. (Please, please, please.)
First of all, my dear friend B, who I have known since we were twelve sent me the most amazing card. She has always been a very creative card-maker and an avid cheerleader of her friends. I almost cried when I saw this in the mail, and have read and re-read the card all morning. I do think the envelope is the best part:
If you can't tell, the sentiments on it include: "Is it time for a protein shake?", "October or bust!", "Rest, rest, rest" and "You can do it BOYS!"
Secondly, Deb from Waiting on Life Part 2 gave me an award! As she pointed out in her post, some of the recipients did not even know she read their blogs at all (me included) so it was a great surprise! I am supposed to tag 15 people, but I don't know who has received it already. So if you feel so inclined, consider yourself awarded! I read all of your blogs and love their variety!
I will leave you with my 22 week belly picture. The boys are growing so big, and it is evident here! I tend to bump into things with the tummy now since it grows so fast that I don't have time to adjust.
Once again, a big, triplet-belly-sized thank you for all of the encouragement. The comments, links to other blogs and prayers are like gifts to me. When I read comments, I savor each one like a treasure and re-read them when I am feeling low. Thank you!
Go see what everyone else is showing today at Mel's Show and Tell!
