Doctor Update

I am sure all of you have been wondering how all the doctor and hospital visits have been going. Well, other than the fact that a hospital is one of the most unorganized and inefficient places in the world the tests are going great. Elizabeth has had excellent heart rates every time and seems to be moving very well. "Active little girl" is what they say about her. I was however told that I need to slow down, drink a gallon of water everyday, go in the pool every day, and no marathon shopping trips. This is because my amniotic fluid dropped from a level 11 to a level 8 in only one week which is most likely a cause of dehydration. We don't want Lizzy to be coming earlier than we planned (ONLY 3 WEEKS and 3 DAYS LEFT) so I am taking the doctor's advise and letting Brandon do a lot more for me. This is not easy being a self sufficient and stubborn mother, however I am learning to like being waited on a little. Otherwise everything seems to be going great and we will be meeting our little Lizzy bug very soon.

I am so glad to hear you are trying to take it easy. I know how hard that can be with an active toddler in tow! I can't wait to meet Lizzy but keep her cooking just a few weeks longer and you'll be there!

Glad things are progressing good. Any idea on her current size?

Definitely keep up with the water. I was pg this time last year and was drinking a gallon and a half a day and my dr STILL was griping at me that I wasn't drinking enough! It's this stupid desert. You take it easy and take care of yourself!
