Quite the Valentines day!

Sorry its so long.

Valentines Day started out well. Joe went to Work for a couple hours in the Morning and came home for breakfast with a beautiful rose for me and a picture of us in a beautiful frame he made. It made my morning, then I went and helped him work on a few things at the shop for a few hours (this wasn't my idea of an exciting valentines day activity but we need the money so what can you do. We then went to the temple which is always nice and when we got home Joe made me a Really Yummy meal. I was quite impressed! And started thinking he needs to cook more often. We'll sadly I think I got my wish. That night we went to bad and I woke up about 2:30 and discovered that my pasts where all wet. When I got to the bathroom I realized it was what I would describe as watered down blood and I thought, this really doesn't look good. After I got myself cleaned up a bit I woke Joe up and told him we needed to change the sheets. We did and then I called my mommy (at 3 something in the morning, sorry, but hey that's what moms are for right.) She said I should probably get to the hospital And after some debating I decided to call my doctor who said he'd meet me at the hospital shortly. From what I had told the doctor he was a little worried that my water may have broken. If this was the case they would have to get me to Ogden but he reassured me that with the baby at 28 at weeks and the technology we have the baby would have a very good chance of survival. At that point I got a little worried and Joe was scared to death. Joe gave me a blessing of comport just before we left to the hospital and It really helped a lot! I was quited calm and sure everything would be OK the whole time. They ran some tests checked me and did an Ultra-sound to check my fluids and make sure there was no amniotic fluid coming out. And the gave me a steroid shot in the bumb to held the baby's lungs develop just in case she was on her way sooner that expected. After checking everything they discovered that my fluids were good and the was not sign of amniotic fluid coming out. They also discovered that the placenta was low and right next to the cervix which would explain the blood. I was still bleeding so the Doctor wanted to keep me there and continue monitoring me and the baby. So after one long sleepless night for both Joe and me I was hoping to be able to go home and get some good rest. I was quite bumbed when they informed me that the doctor wanted to keep me there all day and maybe until the next morning. So I spent Sunday in the hospital eating yummy hospital food and getting my belly rubbed with jelly so they could monitor the baby every few hours. It was quite the experience and I was just hoping the doctor would let me go home that night so I could sleep in my own bed. The bleeding throughout the day got less and less and they checked my fluids again that evening and since things were looking better I was able to go home around 10:30 pm. and boy was it nice to sleep in my own bed. Now the reason that I think I got my wish about Joe cooking is that while the Doctor let me go home he put me on bed rest for the next week or two. I've only been up a few hours and i am already sick of this bed rest thing. But I decided I had better be good because I really don't was to go back to the hospital. So if you have any suggestions on good books or movies or any sort of activity I can do while sitting or laying Please, Please let me know. But I am doing fine really! I feel great I just have to take it easy so that all will continue to go well. So that was our fun weekend. And i just have to brag about how wonderful my husband is! He has been so concerned and so good to me. The first thing he did after we got the sheets changed was drop to his knees and I don't know how many other times I noticed him bowing his head in prayer and It just made me feel so lucky to have such a great example in my life. He is just too good to be true!

How scary! I am glad everything is okay! I'm also glad you have such a great husband to look after you! I'm also impressed with how calm you were. I would have been freaking out and would've called my mom on the way to the hospital! Being calm will come in handy once you have the baby!

Oh lisa!!! I am so glad everything is ok, trust me I understand every part of your story, except the part where you were not actually in labor. But since you are past the 26 week mark you are good to go! and your next goal is the 34 week. They told me that if I got to that point then its not early labor. So good luck with everything. Steriod shots are amazing, I think that is what saved Emma! They are pretty amazing! It will be over before you know it. Read lots, eat lots, and enjoy sleeping! If you have any questions let me know. cell 801-636-7644, good luck, and everything will be fine! And every day you are in bed with that baby is two days they dont have to be in the NICU! love ya

Lisa! My poor little girl! How scary! I'm so glad that everything is fine and everything is still going smoothly. Try to enjoy bed rest. I know it would suck, but man, you have NO responsibilities! So sweet! haha. You should read your ksiega mormona for 30 minutes a day, make me a tape, and watch LOST. Have you seen LOST? If not, start with season one, it'll last you a while. =) I love you!

Wow I got teary eyed reading that. I am glad that everything turned out okay. We'll be praying for you to make sure baby keeps on growing healthy Inside! of you. I have to agree with watching Lost. Go onto abc.com and you can watch them all for free.
Good luck with everything. I know bed rest can be hard. My mom was on it for like 7 months with my baby sister! Just keep your strength up the best you can.
