I want to give a quick shout-out to my fabulous husband! I am so proud of him! He has taken all four sections of the CPA exam! But the shout-out is mostly to announce that he has PASSED three of those sections. We just found out about the third one today. He has been very worried since he took it October 6. It was one of the hardest sections and he wasn't sure he passed. But he did. SO, now we just have to wait to hear about the Regulation section that he took on Saturday. He doesn't think he did so well on that one...cross your fingers!
And here's an update on me: I'm still pregnant. SO, SO pregnant! On Saturday I actually had contractions start at 3:30 pm. By 8:30 when they hadn't stopped and were getting closer together, I called the doc and he said to come in. They hooked me up to the monitors and we could see the contractions on the screen every 5 or 6 minutes (they were closer together when I was up and walking). So they checked me and...I AM STILL AT 1 CM DILATION! STILL! So they let me get up and walk and had me on the monitors for a few more hours and I was still having regular, hard contractions, so they checked me again at 12:30...and no change. None. I was so worn out from having contractions all day that they gave me some Ambien. I could totally get addicted to that stuff! It's fantastic! But, when I woke up at 5:30 my contractions had stopped completely. I got up and walked some more but they never picked back up. When the doc came in at 7 am and checked me I was still just a 1. So I got sent home with no baby. It was depressing to say the least. All that pain for NOTHING! I was pretty upset when we got home. I was really worried that I'm going to keep going through this and then end up with another c-section! I want to avoid that if at all possible. It took a ton of pitocin to get me to dilate when I had Cam (you remember my 29 hour, completely pitocin induced labor, right?), and they try not to give VBAC moms pitocin unless absolutely necessary. But, I still have 9 days until my due date so there's still time for things to change. And I've actually been feeling pretty great since I got home Sunday morning. So much so that I mopped my floors, did laundry, and cleaned my house this morning!
Anyway, that's it for us!
