One of the unit secretaries brought me a cake, the ladies at the nurses’ station pooled together and got me a bouquet of flowers, and Joe and Nana and the kids brought me dinner from Texas Roadhouse.
It was way awesome!
I’ll tell you more later, but right now I’m very sleepy. I was up kinda late last night.
* Another ultrasound this morning, and the AFI is 14 (I don’t think that’s terribly accurate – I’m getting pretty good at gauging these things), the biophysical was 8 of 8 (very good), and the Systolic/Diastolic ratios on the cord’s blood pressure were both 2.9 (not the greatest, but not terrible, either).
* I knitted my first sock yesterday! I realized as I was working on the second one that 1) I did it wrong and skipped several rows, and 2) it’s way too big for Daniel, but I can fix both of these things after I finish this second “model”.
* Dr. Randall just explained the whole amniocentesis thing a lot more completely to me, and I feel much better about it.
* I’m starting to feel a lot more emotion when talking about the birth and the processes that are going to go on around it. I take this as a good thing, and I really hope I can work through most if not all of it by next Monday.
And with that, I’m going to knit a little more until it’s time to check my blood sugar, and then I’m going to take a nap.
