33 weeks and 5 days
That's how far along I am today and we are shooting for 35 weeks. Ok, I want a bare minimum of 34 weeks but optimum would be 35 weeks and beyond. Eric's parents drove up Monday from Oceanside to help me take care of Etta while Eric is at work all day long. I can tell it has made a difference; I don't feel as stressed and it takes a lot of the physical demands off of me (not having to pick up Etta). They'll be here through the rest of the week but have a trip planned for Michigan already. I'm trying to convince my mom or dad to take some time off to help out the following week. Lets hope Chloe is still cooking away and that I will need the extra hands around the house.
Last night was the worst night yet. I couldn't sleep and I had 4 contractions in an hour with a lot of movement from Chloe that was uncomfortable. I was minutes away from calling the hospital and asking if I should come in but then all the pains stopped and I was able to go to sleep. Today has been a great day; very few contractions, cramps, and pains. It gives me hope that she'll stay inside a bit longer.
Sorry it has taken me a little while to update you on the pregnancy but we were without internet since Saturday. It's funny how we had internet for one day then it crapped out on us the next day. Go figure. I'll have pictures updated soon on the blog. They are on the laptop and I'm working on the desktop at the moment.
Send lots of prayers our way and I'll keep you posted as things happen.
