Merry Christmas to you from Spectrum! I couldn’t be happier to report that I have spent Christmas Day on bedrest. Today marked my 25th week of pregnancy, on the 25th of December. Although I am not even close to where I would like/should/need to be when the triplets are born, I feel great about making it to 25 weeks – what a blessing! Dr. Jelsema is amazed that I have maintained the pregnancy for the past eleven days, while dilated to 5 cm. My new mantra is: Every day counts.
Jason and Quin came to visit me this morning. Jason did a great job taking pictures and video while Quin opened presents at home. He brought the video camera to the hospital so that I could watch. It was the second best thing to being there with them. She also opened one of her ‘bigger ticket’ presents here. I figure she won’t remember my absence this Christmas and we will definitely have an exciting day next year! My family came to visit me this afternoon, with food to share :)
I hope all of you, and your families, had a very Merry Christmas!
