fragile little hearts

Many contractions. Much begging and convincing to the Bubbles in the belly: No, not yet. Two more weeks to cook would be just great! PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Making supergirl tell him to stay in there. She talks to the belly button: Here Mama? Or lower? Where is his head, Mama? STAY, BABY! DO NOT COME OUT YET!!!
She is good already at ordering her baby brother around.

She tried to do some gymnastics on the couch where I was resting and timing the contractions (8-10 minutes if you care) and waiting for the nifedipine to take effect.
No - please don't jump near mama! Please!!! STOP! You are going to land on the belly! Do NOT land on the belly!

Supergirl: Oh. Okay Mama. I'll stop. Because we don't want him to be born yet. It's too early. Because then he will die. We don't want him to die. Right, Mama?

I told her that he would probably be okay, but he would have to stay in the hospital for a little while. And we would prefer a baby that can come home to live with us as soon as possible.
She said that she would kiss him all over when he is born. But very gently.

Oh.....how I want to tell her that he WON'T die.

sigh.

Fingers crossed that all is well. I'd pray, but I don't think that would necessarily be a benefit to either one of us. :)

Hoping that things are well and that the meds are doing the trick.

Hey there hot mama, I've been thinking of you lately.... I know that you will have a wonderful beautiful son who is coming into the most loving family a baby could choose. I wish I wasn't so far away, I had the best time visiting while I was in town. I'll keep reading up on your blog here.....

-sassy in the city-

Good luck. I have been reading your journal and I send good vibes, compassion, and whatever else could help. Cookies, perhaps? Anyway, whatever it is that comforts you and the Bubbles and gets him to STOP TRYING TO COME OUT YET, that is what I'm sending you.
