i saw most of you guys at the progressive dinner, but i'll update you anyway.

i went to the doctor on thursday. the contractions are still coming, but i haven't dilated anymore. we did the fetal fibronectin test, and i'm assuming it came back negative because she said if it were positive she would start me on some kind of steroid to stop labor. i never got that call, so i take that as a good sign.

the bad news is i have to continue my bed rest for 3 more weeks. i can't even travel home for christmas. this will be the first christmas ever that i didn't spend at my parents' home. hopefully they will make it here at some point.

i will return to work after christmas break, january 3, given that i haven't had the little guy yet. at that time, i'll be somewhere around 35 weeks and the doctor is comfortable with me delivering anytime after that. i'll work until i deliver and then take MINIMAL time off due to the fact all my days have been eaten up with bed rest. having a healthy baby is definitely worth it.

so for the next 3 weeks, i will remain at home, most likely planning for the next 2 six weeks of school. feel free to stop by, call, whatever. i'll be here!

oh, and if you weren't here on friday for the progressive dinner, then you may not know that our newest addition has a name...
