She didn't like the Birthday gong very much though. Later that night she told me she liked everything besides that.
Afterwards, I dropped Madelyn off back home with Mike. They got some ice cream, made a fort in the Living Room, and watched a movie together. While she spent some time with daddy, I went over to Amanda and Donna's house to visit and have some Birthday cake.
We had a fun night and it was so nice just spending time with good friends.
Thankfully Amanda got some pictures from the night. I couldn't capture any good ones with my phone.
We also had a couple of nicer days where we were able to play outside and get some fresh air.
Madelyn definitely had a fun time.
My appointments have been going well too. At my last visit, I was only one centimeter dilated but the Doctor confirmed that the baby had dropped and she could also feel the head while checking my cervix. My blood pressure was better than it has been in weeks so she said she's not going to induce me but they are going to continue monitoring the baby closely. Although some days can be very tiring, I know she will be here soon so it helps to keep that in mind. I don't want to rush the time either.
She will come when she is ready.
I'm actually hoping she holds off just a little bit longer after the long night we had.
Madelyn was awake for hours getting sick. We both stayed by her side and didn't get much sleep at all. She woke up saying she felt better but still wasn't eating or drinking very much. I thought she was finally starting to act more like herself until she got sick again. I sure hope she's doing better soon.
I don't think I've ever done so much laundry and cleaning in a single day.
It's tough seeing Madelyn so sick. I'm hoping to get some much needed rest tonight as she recovers. Everyone have a great weekend!
