Practice Run

This weekend was RELATIVELY uneventful, except for a quick run to the hospital. I didn't think I was in labor, but I hadn't felt the baby move as much as usual in a couple of days, so on Friday night I called our office's "doctor on call" who told me to go to the hospital for some fetal monitering just in case. Of course, this had us both a bit anxious, and we thought it was probably for the best anyway.

Happily, we were hooked up to a monitor in a labor and delivery room and Isabelle was moving around like crazy...according to the machine, but I still couldn't feel a thing...wierd. So, in conclusion everything was fine. The doctor had told me to take some Tylonel PM to help sleep and that could have been making the baby drowsy. The nurses still told us the Tylonel PM was fine to take, it wouldn't harm the baby.. But I stopped taking it...and didn't fall asleep till about 4 in the morning. So I went back on it the next night and we are just going to live with a drowsy baby for a few more days. She can sleep, mama has to go to work!

WOW! until I got your email, I didn't kow about your "trip"...
Glad everything is okay.

We had a great time, mostly shopping and just hanging out. We (I) got to do some heavy mourning and processing, and that was very healing.

How do you do all this HTML stuff? If you haven't noticed, my blog is pretty blah.... I can't even do the links! I'm a lost cause...

I get on your xanga every Tuesday to see how your doctor's appt. was on Monday and see how the baby is progressing. Now you are really confusing me. I have to bookmark a new page so that I can get on your site and check on the baby. Speaking of which, there is no update on your dialation or effacing. I am wuite dissappointed! We are anxiouly awaiting baby news. Love your sis!!

No baby news... glad to hear are getting some sleep though! We're out of the village today, at a conference (business meetings and a retreat this weekend). E-mail will be spotty, so call me anytime-- especially if there is another trip to the hospital! We're praying for you here on the other side of the earth! RM
