It looks like baby has decided to stay put for awhile longer. Melaina continues to have mild contractions but they’re neither regular nor frequent. After a couple of frustrating days, she’s feeling much more positive today and we all recognize that another week or two in utero would help ensure that baby’s lungs are fully developed and that she doesn’t have any breathing difficulties at birth.
In the meantime, I’m having breathing issues of my own. Thanks to Richard, who is almost over his, I’ve come down with a nasty head cold. At this point, they probably wouldn’t want me anywhere near a hospital so Melaina says she’s told the little one to hold on until Gram is better. Let’s hope she listens!
