No Excuses

Right after Zumba class yesterday I got a call from my daughter letting me know she was having contractions.  The rest of the day was spent at the hospital.  First they kept her on a monitor for 2 hrs to see if she were in labor.  She was showing contractions but they were irregular.  The baby was doing fine with a very strong heart beat when suddenly the heartbeat dropped.  They came in to check on her, the heartbeat was once again strong but they decided to do an ultrasound.  The ultrasound showed that the amniotic fluid was low (this makes it easy for the umbilical cord to get compressed or crimped) so they kept her overnight on the monitor.  She will have more tests this morning.  So I am waiting on a phone call to let me know what is going to happen today.  I will keep you posted either here or at A Day in the Life on the Farm.

On the fitness front....I cannot move my arms today.  I didn't do any weight work yesterday so this is still as a result of Monday's workout.  I think I will be having an Aleve for breakfast!
