34 weeks and we were released again...

Ok, is this starting to sound like a broken record??  Feels like it!  They only made us stay 2 nights this time though.  The first night I was hooked up to 24 hour monitoring of the babies which is absolutely no fun, but is comforting to see their little hearts beating so well.  Monitoring looked great throughout the night, blood pressure was actually lower than it has been in awhile and even results of the other preeclampsia tests came back lower than the previous week.  So, they said they didn't have any reason to keep me there.  So we are once again home but continuing to rest.  I go back in on Monday and Thursday for more testing.  Hopefully we can avoid another admittance although if it happens again, I assume we will just stay or they will deliver.  Only 2 weeks to go - still targeting May 6th!!
 
The good news is that we have managed to see almost every wing of the hospital now and most of the nurses know us by name.  Yesterday was 'bring your kids to work day' and they asked if they could hook me up to the monitors so the kiddies could listen (all dressed up in their scrubs).  It was fun, but I have to admit, I am starting to feel a bit like a show dog ;)  Here is a pic of the fun...
