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.

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!!
