Last week my OB wanted to induce me but because I was only 38 weeks the hospital's policy dictated that they do an Amniocentesis to check for fetal lung maturity before they start an induction.  Alex, Anthony, My mom and I arrived early Thursday morning at the hospital for the procedure.  At one point Alex and my mom were out of the room and I had to go to the bathroom..... not wanting to leave Anthony alone in the room, I took him with me into the bathroom.  He came right in with me and went and laid down in the shower.  By the time I got my phone to take a picture of the silly puppy, he had gotten up to see why I laughing so much.   You just gotta love the goofball!!

The amniocentesis was painful to say the least but all went well and there were no complications.  The good/bad news, depending on how you look at it, is that the results showed that our little guys lungs were not quite mature yet.  So home we went and  I get to sit in the lazy boy for another week continuing to contract every 2-3 minutes.  They say to be a good parent you have patience and I sure have been learning that lesson a lot lately.

How cute Anthony is! :)

Every time I read that you are having constant contractions I swear I have sympathy pains for you. That's gotta be rough...or should I say ruff?
