Jason and I had a very exciting weekend with my parents and my Aunt Suz in town! We were not able to do very much, unfortunately, due to my contractions, but we had a fantastic time, despite being home bound, and really enjoyed every second we could spend with my family! For those of you who do not know, last Tuesday, Dr. Looney put me on 5 mg of Terbutaline, as needed, which is used to stop my contractions because they found out that I am 20% effaced now. This means that my cervix is thinning out, prematurely. So far I have taken the medication about twice a day and have had to cancel any trips I had planned, even if they were only an hour away. I go back to the doctor on Wednesday, 5/27, to find out if the medication is working. The good news is that Connor is more active than EVER now - and I love every second of it. Ok - enough talking...enjoy the pictures!
On Friday night, we had my parents and Suz, as well as Jason's mother and Greg, Granny, and our good friends Misty and Rob over to the house for a cookout and a "pre-shower" since they would not be able to attend my shower in June. These are some pictures from grilling out.
