Happy 4th of July!!!

Yay! Fireworks day!

Tonight we're going to Boomer Blast, like we try to do every year. Yummy picnic and fun with family! We'll need a lot of bug spray...

Anyway, just an update on baby Evan... the day I was released off bedrest, my doctor gave me a "fetal fibronectin test". This tests to see if there is fibronectin in the birth canal. Fibronectin is basically the "glue" that keeps everything together until delivery. Once it gets about 2 weeks from delivery, the fibronectin breaks down, and you'll find in the canal. A negative test means that there is about a 0.01% chance that the baby will come in the next two weeks. A positive test means that there's a 30% chance the baby will come in the next 2 weeks. Of COURSE, mine was positive. I'm telling you - this baby does NOT want to wait any longer! :) So, now I just have to watch my contractions more carefully (I have several a day) in case they turn into active labor. Yikes.

Emma is a real trooper. She deals with everything so well. Poor kid is constantly shuffled around from appointment to appointment unless an uncle will watch her, but usually the appointments are so early that no one is awake in time. She "graduated" from her "Sibling Course" at the medical center here earlier this week, where she got to tour the hospital (which she knows quite well by now) and watch a video with kids dressed in 80's attire talking about the good and bad things that come with being a big sister. Just something to keep in mind when you come visit Evan - congratulate big sister, too. She's been so wonderful helping me out while on bedrest and non-stress tests, and ultrasounds...a true gift from above. My little mini-momma.

Well, be safe and happy this Independence Day!!!
