the past week

from Sunday, 28w3d

refreshing shower? yes! stiff upper lip? not so much.

flowers from mom and dad

this is the printout from a non-stress test. the two lines on the top are the traces of the babies' hearts, and the line at the bottom shows any contractions of the uterus (none!)

3 belts: a fetal heart monitor for each baby, and the contraction monitor for me.

compression "boots" to avoid blood clots in the legs

hydration & communication, and rescue remedy

supportive friends.
Korin, me, my awesome nurse/friend R, and my amazing sister behind the camera.


  1. LOVE YOU!!! (and again, you look great in the red top :D ) just gotta keep on keeping on, eh?

  2. Hi Celeste, this is Korin's friend Heather, from her DDC on MDC. I've been keeping a good thought out for you and the boys and am glad to get updates from Korin when I see her on IM. Take care and keep cookin'!

  3. Over from Tracy's site to wish you the best of luck in the days ahead and many more days of baking for you and the little ones!

  4. Oh Celeste, I'm sorry this has become such a...Process. Sending you a big hug.

  5. You look fantastic. I am sending so many good thoughts.

  6. Keeping all of our fingers crossed for you. When Daniel ruptured his membranes, I had less than 24 hours before the kids were born (that was at 31w6d). When they told me they would keep me in the hospital for 2 weeks, I laughed. I couldn't stay in one place for two weeks even if it was a tropical island, let alone a hospital...

    Hopefully, you can get some rest.
    We will be thinking about you....
