so after traveling back to houston and clint making it home for ONE night... we had a long night... i wasn't feeling good when he got home but we ran to get something to eat, and i couldn't eat anything (which seemed to be very common these days) because i felt so nauseated and contractions. after getting home, bathing, reading and putting emma to bed, i seemed to be feeling worse. finally about 10 i texted my mom to come over while we went to get me checkout out at the ER. we got there and it seemed like forever... hooked me up to monitors, they checked me, took urian sample, called my doctor and gave me some meds for the nausea and also started some fluids. finally about 2:30 AM she rechecked me and i hadn't changed since we got there and nausea seemed to have stopped and so did the contractions. it really seems that i brought all this on myself with traveling to houston, running around and not drinking enough water and the stress of not telling my doctor about leaving town, too. i plan to take it easy and stay out of this heat! i also realized last night... i am ready for him to be here but not sure if i am ready for labor, just yet! :) clint left this afternoon for finally job until little man arrives (he's planning to just drive FAST when it is really time, just praying that baby doesn't come really fast but leaving it in Gods hands and not gonna keep stressing myself about it... prayers for healthy mama and baby!

so... after a handful of stuff on Tuesday (including Emma's dentist, pediatrician, lunch with my running friends and my weekly doctors apt). Emma wasn't too excited about the dentist but we made it through her first cleaning and a quick visit to the pediatrician. Emma stayed with my grandmother while I went to my doctors apt but before I went I already had our bags packet and ready to leave for Houston to see Clint at training. I really wasn't expecting to hear what my doctors said... she checked me and said well your 50% effaced and 1-2 cm dilated. oh wow... didn't expect that! I wasn't sure what I was thinking at this point but that I wanted to see Clint! So I didn't tell my doctor that I was planning to go to Houston either (oops). I left the apt went home and loaded the truck, picked Emma up and got on the road. It was a pretty good drive... Emma sleep the entire way and we got there right in time for dinner with Clint but didn't have much of a
appetite.:) If you know anything about me, you would know that I am a "so by the book kind of gal" so for me this was a big deal! so needless to say I didn't sleep good Tuesday night but nice to wake up next to my hubby for once! he had class so emma and i went to visit with my friend maria and her twins (ava and mason). after my adventure in getting lost in houston we finally found their house and it was so worth it to see the kids light up to see each other! we went to a play-date at a place similar to the little gym and they had a blast! after that we went to McDonald's to finish letting the kids play (out of the heat!) after that the kids were hungry so we went to a mexican food restaurant and emma was so hungry she ate almost all of her chicken and some fries (never happens!) she said she was tired on the way to eat so i thought we would head back to the hotel but she really wanted to go back to their house to play. i decided we are not in houston often so we would go play some more. they played inside/outside and maria and I were able to chat and catch up too! finally clint texted and said he was about done with class so we headed to the hotel. we went to dinner but i was so tired from the day i could have just gone to bed. went to dinner and still didn't have much of a appetite and back to hotel for some olympic watching. we all got to sleep but i was up at 4 with some contractions and back pain and really questioning my choice to come to houston and not tell my doctor. so by 6:45 i told clint we were going to drive home because i was stressed and my body wasn't feeling right... the drive wasn't too bad but now working on a nap with Emma (good luck!) still have some contractions but not as frequent. i am just praying he say in till tomorrow night because clint will be home!
until next time...
