I'm home!

I'm home and it feels GREAT! I honestly didn't know if they were going to let me leave the hospital, but thankfully they did. I was miserable there. And who knew how puffy you could get just with the IV fluids they give you? I look pretty scary right now. I'm still waiting for all the water to leave my body so I can kind of look normal again. Things seem to be under control for now. I can't leave my bed/couch. I just have to lay here and do nothing. It's kind of hard to not do anything when I know so much needs to be done. I guess it will all be worth it in the end. Everyday we can get with these babies in my womb at this point is just bonus time. Once Ryan and I realized how close we are to having these babies, we kind of freaked out. Who knew it would come so soon? In probably just a few short weeks our lives will be forever changed. Exciting Font sizeand scary!

Ug I wish I was closer so I could bring you lunch and chit-chat. Being on the other side of the country is really inconvenient.

Well my dear... I am SO glad that those babies are staying put!! I'm sure bed rest is awful. I'm sorry. I will continue to check on you through your blog. Hope you are feeling better!

I hope your mom passed along the stern yelling I gave you the other night!! I am SO worried about you and those babies! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, no matter how bored and irritated you get, STAY LAYING DOWN!! I know it sucks but like you said every day you can keep those precious babies inside the better it will be. I will come and visit you if you need different company. You REALLY DO NOT want to have to be given Magnesium Sulfate to stop your labor it SUCKS. I love you and Ry and those babies, let me know what I can do to help. I'm really good at yelling you into submission (hee, hee, hee). Love your guts!
