34 Weeks

There was a little excitement in the Agro house this week!  We received a good report from my OB on Thursday and a good biophysical result at the maternal fetal specialist on Friday.  With all the good news, I didn't think twice about going out for tea with my mom, Cousin Linda and Colleen on Saturday for my mom's birthday.  Tea was fantastic, but I guess the babies weren't as thrilled with my afternoon plans.  After feeling uncomfortable most of the day on Saturday, Joe and I started timing my contractions Saturday evening, and we ended up in the hospital a little after midnight.

The doctor did a thorough exam and determined that my body was just practicing for labor (I guess my body hasn't been listening to me tell everyone that I've scheduled a c-section for the sole purpose of avoiding labor).  And seriously, 6-8 contractions an hour seems a little extreme for "practice" -- don't you agree?!  The doctor sent us home from the hospital at about 4:30 in the morning and told me not to come back until the contractions were 5 minutes apart (for those of you who don't do math -- that's 12 contractions per hour).  No, thank you!

I wish I had an update on the babies' growth developments, but they won't be measured for another two weeks.  My growth development is a little easier to track:

Well I think you look absolutely FANTASTIC! Not to mention HUGE! But you also look HAPPY...which is a good sign.
