Well I know it is only Thursday and I said I was going to wait until we got back to blog again, but plans have drastically changed.
First to hold you off in suspense a little longer. A few rules and recaps
1) do celebrate the joy and happiness of both kids doing extremely well on a ten hour car trip
2) do be so happy that the kids are cousins are getting along great
3) do grumble and complain about the 50 degree weather (i want my 80's back)
4) do enjoy a morning temple session--oh wait back that boat up, that is when the excitement begins
Wednesday Eric, his dad and his sister Rachel went to the Jordan River temple to enjoy a morning session. On the way into the temple I felt like I leaked a little... But it was one of those huh? Not much I think everything is fine moments. Went in a changed into my temple dress; for those not of my faith while in the temple everyone wears white to symbolize purity and cleanliness. I went in for the session and was feeling fine. I went to stand up at one point and water came trickling down my leg. I was soon sitting again wondering what I should do; I still was not having any contractions and the trickling stopped. I said a silent prayer and was filled with a peace and reassurance that everything would be okay. Several minutes later I stood up again and water came much faster than a trickle this time. I turned to my sister-in-law and said I am leaking I have to go. I went into the isle and waved for Eric to follow me. I think my water broke I told him as we left the room. "how exciting!" one of the temple workers commented, "no it is too soon, I am only 31 weeks" I replied.
She quickly escorted us through the temple, I could feel my dress getting wetter and wetter. I hurried to the locker room and changed into my regular dress, then Eric and I took off for the hospital. We went to the ER, which was pleasantly empty, and when I told
them how far along I was they quickly wisked me back. They took me to Triage to check me out, while I was changing into those lovely
hospital gowns the nurse said based on the amount of fluid on the wheel chair they were just going to admit me. Luckily I went through my
first half of my pregnancy with Lucas in Utah so I was already in the system.
They got me all hooked up to the monitors and not only had I lost a lot of fluid but I was contracting pretty regularly.
