Hanging in there...

Monday was a tough day for me. I have been sleeping okay, which is good. The nurses are kind enough for right now to not really wake me up much to take my vitals. My Dr. is in London with her 21 year old son and so her husband is taking over until she gets back and then they say it will be time. He is really nice, very shy but nice. I thought I was done with keeping track of my urine, jokes on me...I get to measure every time and keep in a log, its getting very old. But I gotta do what I gotta do. We went in for an Ultrasound again yesterday and Ellah was being just a little diva again. They had to bring in a Doctor because Ellah is getting very low and it looked as if things were starting to open and they were worried. During this time, Ellah went from feet, hands and head all down (being a gymnist), oblique, transverse and now she is head down. They all laughed as normal. But turns out everything is still doing okay. Okay for this next part, its confusing to me. Sorry if this subject is too personal for some....they talk a lot about Poo here. It seemed like yesterday was the day to talk more though. They constantly ask me about it and then they give me these pills and Milk Magnesium and then tell me "Don't Push the Poo!" They scare me to death that if I push at all, they baby will come out. Goodness, I need a break from this place already.
I did have another visitor, which was great, it helps me out so much. He really made me laugh with his question....so he asks me Michelle, I really don't understand, when will her birthday be, ya know because she is a premie and everything?! I was confused and asked what he meant be that. Well will her brithday be her original due date or when she is born or what? Hahaha, I laughed and thought, no I get to pick when I was get birthday to be. But held that comment back and said well the day she is born, her BIRTHday!!

Jeremiah continues to help me out a lot. I haven't had an emotional pregnancy but in here I seem to be having a hard time. I honestly believe its due to this whole thing being foreign and well all the poking and testing they are doing. It gets really uncomfortable and well honestly that is what I have to look forward to every day....everything is like clockwork. I am trying not to be selfish and just beg the doctor to induce but already, we have just about one week at the most. But I am so exhausted with this. I will say, I think the tears come less often, so I think I am catching on. As I said, Jeremiah is my hero, he is simply the best husband in the world!!

I wanted to thank everyone for the support, it means so much to me. I hope everything is going great in Kenai, or wherever you are!! Today, we are going for a wheelchair ride to the SKYBRIDGE....I am so excited. Pretty sad huh?

    I am headed up to Anchorage today for doctor appointments for my boys and I wondered if you needed me to bring you anything from home. You can email me at erinboehme@gmail.com until about 6:30 this evening or call me at 394-6844. Please let me know if you need anything. We will be there through Wednesday evening, so if you need anything while we are there too, please don't hesitate to call me.
