Tricks are for Kids!

I'm not really sure if the babies know hazing is illegal! It is bad enough I had 3 people come check on me between 6am and 7am...but playing games on the heart rate monitor Baby B...shame on you!

Let me go back to Thursday... Everyone was sooo cooperative, I had a wonderful schedule and great company during both my testings! Mom J ( Everett's mom) came and sat with me during my first testing...It was great...I didn't have to talk to myself or make up dances in my head that would never get executed in real life! ha ha! And my sweet lover sat with me during my night we watched MUST SEE TV!!! Yay NBC Thursday Nights!

---side bar--- My sweet lover....Can I just say... that guy is great! He has stayed here EVERY night since I got here...and hasn't complained once. He sleeps in a chair that flattens out to a "bed" of sorts that is about 20 inches wide... what a guy!

So this morning one of the many wonderful nurses here (this is not "insert sarcasm here" ) ...they are really great... anyway, she ran a Doppler to listen to the babies heart rates, and Baby B wanted to play possum for a little while... she thought she was an "adult" and could have a heart rate like mine...instead of double mine. So before shower and breakfast, I headed over to Labor and Delivery for testing.

The benefit of this silly line in my arm paid off today... b/c they didn't have to stick me to put me on the IV drip bags...yay! Apparently I was having high contractions, which I couldn't feel, all I could feel was my stomach saying, "why haven't we eaten today?" The babies were on and off the monitor all morning long, moving around like crazy...but not tracing long enough for a good "testing"

After 5 hours, they finally let me my next test...the Bio Physicals which they did really well with today! scored an 8! yay! These little ladies must know its Halloween and are full of tricks and treats today!

They were so "cute" on the monitor today, they were cheek to cheek... and I got to see Baby B pee... not sure that was so "cute" ...but it was interesting!

Lets hope tonight's monitoring is better....

My darling Lily:

It's 3:30pm here in Vancouver, I just returned from having a lovely bowl of potato and leek soup with my girlfriend Monique (you would have met her at my wedding), and updating her on you and the girls...she sends her love.

She has just returned from a month travel in Jordan, Egypt and Jerusalem. And bought me back the most amazing beaded jewellery made by Bedouin travellers.

I am glad you are maintaining good spirits...your positive attitude will keep your lifted, and a happy mummy has happy babies. This time next year you will be organising Halloween costumes and making treats for your girls.

Jordan said she is too old for Halloween, so we are going to watch scary movies and eat stuff that is not good for us. Tomorrow we are off to the theatre to see The History Boys. It is cold and rainy here in Vancouver, but the good news is we get an hour more sleep this weekend.

Your husband is doing what a husband should, looking after his wife and children. I am proud of him also.

Only the heart knows, how to find, what is precious (Fyodor Dostoyevsky)

Much love to you both,
from your lovely Aunt Jen xoxoxo

We decided to avoid the trick or treaters by going to see the new Bond movie:) Just think of all the movies you will sit through with your babies and ask Everett to sprinkle some of the good husband dust on the men in our family. XXXX
