Well, not quite with three active kiddos. But I am officially out of work per the good doctors orders.
I'll be 27 weeks tomorrow & while things haven't happened, and we're hoping that they won't, we decided to take the "just be safe" measure. At school I'm on my feet from 7:30am to 3pm. There is no sitting or relaxing with a demanding class of 22 6- and 7-year olds. And I didn't argue. Hopefully this means I get 3 months with Colbs, Syd, and Zoe before Baby #5 makes its grand appearance.
I think I mentioned that my section is scheduled for April 2nd at 39 weeks 2 days. I've been seeing high risk every 2 weeks on the dot and my regular OB every 2 weeks as well. Some days we're all so optimistic and Dr. K is telling me that he sees no reason that we won't make it to section-date. And other days the reality of my past is there and we're hoping for 36 weeks. My real goal is a healthy baby that comes home when I'm discharged. No NICU time. I cannot even begin to tell you how disappointed I am going to be in myself and my body if this baby comes early. Full term- or nearly so- is some kind of affirmation I need.
We shall see!
And a few pictures of the kiddos SnowTubing a few days after Christmas...
