Did you know?
My amniotic fluid went up again!
I asked the nurse this morning, "Is there a point where my body can't take this any more?"
She smiled and said, "You're to the point where your prayers are being answered."
So to all of you? Thanks for those prayers.
You're keeping my little Emily where she needs to be.
Between Emily and fluid, I have no room for anything else.
It's become somewhat of a game.
I can eat a small breakfast, and I can eat a small lunch, but after that I never know.
I usually manage to keep a piece of toast with some bottled peaches down but then, not always.
Last night I was STARVING!
It had been two days without being able to eat much and I was dying for real food.
I stopped at the closest Cafe Rio and ordered a chicken burrito - enchilada style - without any extras.
I ate about half of it and for the first few hours I thought I might be okay.
I laid down.
Did I mention that Jason came home for the night? He drove 6 hours so that he could spend the night at home with me...he's leaving again in a few hours.
He and I were in bed talking.
It went something like this:
Jason: "Did you see the awesome tent poles I got in the mail?"
Noelle: "Yep." And then a big burp.
Jason: "And the other boxes? I can't wait to show you what's inside!"
Jason: "Did you know that ..."
Noelle: Burp...and then a mad dash to the toilet.
A few minutes later as I waddled out of the bathroom I muttered, "Dang chicken enchilada," and then asked Jason "Aren't you glad you came home for this?"
Amazingly, the man loves me even when I burp. Just as I was falling asleep he said, "I'm going to say a prayer."
Me? I said, "Okay." BURP. And then I laughed...because really? What else can I do?
And for those of you who asked -
I'm happy to tell you what book I read that kept me up until 2:30am.
On one condition: you can't mock me.
Did any of you read The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants?
The author just wrote a 5th book that takes place 10 years later.
It's called Sisterhood Everlasting...and I enjoyed every page.
May your weekend be filled with sno-cones and water parks!!!
