Baby update

Just a quick update about the baby. I went to the doctor today for my regular check up and everything looks good. She is no longer breech which is a good thing; I no longer have to think about a c-section. Unfortunately I got in trouble. The other night I was having cramps along with braxton hicks contractions. They started in the afternoon and didn't stop until about 1 or 2 in the morning. I was a little worried but thought since I was only 32 weeks, I couldn't be in labor. Obviously I didn't go into labor but it still had me a bit worried. I told the doctor about this and she told me I should have gone to the hospital. I may have needed shots to either stop the contractions or steroids to strengthen her lungs. So I have now been advised that if this happens again I am either to call the office or go to the hospital. Duly noted. 
On a side note. Blake has now commandeered another one of his sister's blankets. I had to actually finish this one while he was asleep because he kept stealing the fabric from me. He now has to sleep with it and carry it all around the house. But if you ask him whose blanket it is, he tells you "Kalli". So at least he knows but I just don't think he cares.

Wow, I can't believe you are already 32 weeks! I can't wait to see pictures of Kalli. Good news about her not being breech anymore. Hopefully the preterm labor stays away from here on out.

I can't believe you are 32 weeks already too!!! Holy cow, that went fast! (Sorry, probably not for you) Girls are so much fun but so much more emotional! I'm jealous you get to have one of each!
