Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How are you doing?

Q: How long have you been here?

Q: What do you do all day?
Coloring books and word searches (Thanks Grandma and Grandpa Garrett)

Q: Are you bored?
A: Not yet

Q: Is it true your water broke?
A: Yes

Q: And you're still pregnant?
A: Obviously

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 :)
