32 Weeks . . . and Another Cake!

On Friday I turned 32 weeks! I've met my first goal date! The next goal date is 35 weeks -- which is less than 3 weeks away now.

I haven't been to the MEU since the Wednesday before last, but my contractions are definitely picking up. I've been able to keep them under control at home, but now instead of counting contractions an hour or two a day and taking medicine to control them once a day, I'm counting them almost all day long and taking medicine almost all day long. This is only to be expected of course, but it makes me a little afraid that my staying at home days are numbered. But -- I've been home for FAR longer than I ever expected, so hopefully I can manage to stay home and pregnant for quite a while longer!

To celebrate turning 32 weeks, Gary got me yet another FABULOUS cake -- this time a strawberry cake:

The babies were able to enjoy the cake with me again, and they seemed to like it. Piper ate her cake very politely (I think she prefers chocolate):

Henry definitely enjoyed his cake:

But Rosemary LOVED her cake. I think she is definitely a huge fan of strawberry cake!! She had a bite or two of it, then shoved as much of the cake as possible in her mouth, using both hands. After she finished eating it, she used her little fingers to pick up every crumb of cake she could find on her tray. It was really cute!
