Another Dr's Visit Down

Each time I make to to a Dr. appointment seems to be an accomplishment in this pregnancy. Yesterday was my 34 week check up... Blake and I feel much more prepared for the next few weeks after the visit.

Dr. Thomas explained to us that at this point there is nothing else they can do to stop labor - So we are keeping up the bedrest and medication till 36 wks. She prepared us for the fact that if Emery comes before 36 weeks chances are she will require an extra day or two in hospital nursery. We discussed what will happen if she comes before she is head down(since 16 weeks she has really only been head down a few days of that time) - They won't discuss flipping her for several more weeks because it can induce labor, so if I end up in the hospital in labor a c-section will be required. At this point I really don't care as long as she arrives quickly and healthy! :)

Just a little encouragement and no, this doesn't happen EVERY time...but Nate came at 35 weeks, was 7lbs, 14 oz and completely healthy. And i still don't think they got the date wrong. Praying though for a full term Emery.
