Billy forgot to mention that when Karen was still in town, we also got pedicures. Actually, just I got one from Becky. Karen did her own. Becky's the den mother and wouldn't let us leave to go get store bought pedicures, so she brought the salon to us. She gave me the best pedicure I've ever had! Wish we would've taken a picture of it - I guess there's always next time! I'm going to owe her so much when this is all said and done.
Last night, Billy, Becky and I played Mexican Train dominoes. Becky kicked our butts but I made a valiant comeback towards the end. Billy took last place. We also figured out a way to play pitch with 3 people. Definitely not as cutthroat as regular pitch, but we felt like we accomplished something when we worked out all the kinks.
My monitoring has been going well. The other night I had the most contractions I've ever had in a one hour sitting. The Matria nurse counted 7 (I only caught 5 of them). So I had to drink a big cup of water, eat a snack, give myself a bolus of Terbutaline and re-monitor for another hour. The next session went better with only 3 contractions.
I've been taking it very easy. You're right, Vicki and mom. I know this will be the last chance to really relax and concentrate on me for about 18+ years (most likely even longer). But I've been feeling well and so it's hard to just let Becky and Billy do everything for me when I know I could do it myself. Becky's finding out just how obstinate I can be! Serg, you hit the nail right on the head when you said Billy and I are the 2 most stubborn people you know. You sound like you've been hanging out with us for years, or something!
Bucko leaves for her Vietnam trip today. Hope she has a safe trip and hurries back home! Billy says that you better not meet/bring home any new man from your world travels!
Hope everyone has a great day! Becky's making chicken salad for lunch to go along with my delicious high protein Boost drink. Maybe she'll quit her job after we get back home with the babies and be our nanny.
