Holy, What a day! I went on bed rest, off of bed rest; was planning surgery, no surgery; preparing for labor, no labor; had a shortening cervix, no shortening of the cervix. My brain is seriously spinning still at all the this or that talk and change of plans today.
I DO NOT LIKE MY PLANS CHANGED!!!!!!!!
We went to the University, had the ultrasound. We will post pictures later. The boys are great. Zach is head down, 3 lbs. 2 oz. and looking great. Max is breech, 3 lbs. and also very healthy. Squooshed as squooshed can be. Poor little ducky has a knee in his nose. They are very close, the septum that divides them looks like it takes up 1/2 of Zach's face because Maxwell's butt is RIGHT there. Crazy kiddos.
My cervix is NOT thinning. The length looked good. I do NOT look like I will go into labor ANY time soon. I do NOT need to be on bed rest. Everything is fine & healthy. I should keep doing what I am doing.
I do have gallstones. It took the tech a little manuevering to find my gallbladder. She saw one big stone instead of lots of little ones, like last night. It still hurts so bad, but I am not in any immediate danger. My blood work was all normal, nothing to worry about with that. If I get a fever or go into a severe attack, then, they will consider surgery. Otherwise, I just need to deal with the pain, nausea and vomitting until they are delivered.
Honestly, I think those last three things will hinder what I do more than anything and make me a wreck. I don't have as high of a pain tolerance as I like to think I do. So, lots and lots of rest. I have some Zofran, an antinausea medicine for the vomiting.
So, I am just hanging out. Going to continue the crazy schedule that I have been doing until I imagine I just fall over. I am so thankful everything is well and healthy. Now, I just need to pray that the gallbladder doesn't attack or whatever it does.
I went from threatened hospital bed rest to absolutely nothing in 8 hours. Dustin is exhausted. I have been asleep on the couch for the last three hours... What a day!
