Yay! I’m happy to report that all is well here in the Blanton baby-brewing household. They are still in and are still growing! The last report at the doctors office was that the boys were all doing well with strong heartbeats, and that I hadn’t dilated any more! It was very surreal hearing that because with all my contractions last week, I was prepared to be admitted to the hospital. When I got to leave with Chris, I was so happy!!!
After walking to the car in the heat (blech! pregnant women + heat = no good), I was huffing and puffing. (Chris didn’t make me walk all the way, just standing and holding a belly that weighs what feels like 40 lbs is enough to wear you out) I got into the car, and Chris gently takes me hand, sweetly looks at me and says, “How can I encourage you?….” (awwww, precious sweet hubby) “…because it looks like we are going to make it all the way!” I started cracking up! We know anything can change at any second, but at this point, he thinks, I think, mom thinks that we are going to make it not only to 32 weeks, but 34 weeks! (I can’t think beyond 34 weeks right now… my mind hits a brick wall)
We are sooo very thankful for all of your prayers and for your words of encouragement!!! I am so sorry if I haven’t returned phone calls recently. The boys are literally right under my lungs and it takes a lot out of me to talk on the phone. Please know that your calls mean so much to me, but if I don’t call you back it’s because I’m out of energy – not because I’ve become a hermit or don’t want to talk to you!!! Same goes for email/ comments… it’s hard to keep up with it all b/c my belly sits on my legs and the circulation gets cut off. (That is also why I have about 4 random posts – from Harper to visitors to something else that I haven’t finished yet) They will get done eventually. My priority right now is doing all I can to keep boys in and contractions away!
My Aunt Nean comes this Monday and I can’t wait to see her! I had some great visitors today – my friend Amy and all the Taylor girls came by to cheer me! It was great to see everyone!
Please pray for us this week:
– contractions to stay away
– boys to keep on putting on the pounds
– for me to rest well and keep my spirits up
– for fear to stay away regarding c-section and recovery
My Doctor is out of town this upcoming week, so she told me to cross my legs and not think about labor -ha ha! I really want her to deliver our boys, so they don’t have an option to come out this week!!!
Thank you all once again for loving and supporting us through this… I can’t believe in less that a month I will be putting up pictures on this blog of Maverick, Warner, and Crews!
Alright, can’t feel my legs… signing off!
ML, Chris, Harps, and the 3
