A: Not yet
Q: Is it true your water broke?
Q: And you're still pregnant?
Q: I thought if your water breaks it means you're going into labor...?
A: Nope. Crazy, huh?
Q: How is your baby doing?
A: He's remained stable for the past several weeks; steady heart beat, constant movements, growing, hiccuping, flipping (don't tell the doctors he's breech again)
Q: Do you have a name picked out?
A: Probably, but we're not going to tell you...even if you promise to not tell anyone else.
Q: How far along are you?
A: 29 weeks!
Q: When is your due date?
A: November 18th, but the doctors won't have me deliver past 34 weeks which is October 7th
Q: Will you deliver vaginally or by C-section?
A: I will have a C-section because of how I was cut open during the fetal surgery. My uterus will not tolerate contractions so once I go into labor I will be delivered immediately. All subsequent pregnancies will be C-section as well.
Q: Do you miss you husband?
A: Very much! (Thank you Mariam for donating sky miles so he can come visit me in 11 days!)
Q: Is the food good?
A: It's a little tough that the meals repeat every week, but the food does taste good and I am grateful for room service with well-balanced meals that I wouldn't have otherwise.
Q: Does everybody ask you the same questions?
A: Yes :)
