Santa came to the Labour and Delivery Ward which is were I woke up Xmas morning. Still pregnant though so hanging in for a non-Christmas day bub.
The reduction when ok on Wednesday - 1 litre off without much pain afterward. The main difference this time was the tongue twisters Neil was making me say written in the day's paper. The midwife got a bit involved too and offered a dirty one...something about pheasants being plucked? Laughter is the best medicine?
Give these a go:

Anyway, my uterus is not happy and I have been having lots of contractions and I have been moved up here for closer monitoring (midwife to patient ratio = 1:1). They have done lots of blood tests ect to check for infection from the aminoreduction because that can cause 'irritation in the uterus' but it is all good. The contractions have settled down due to a lot of nifidipine.
The hospital has a special Xmas menu and Santa really did come around to all the patients this morning and delivered a gift from the hospital (not the one shown in the pic, that is Ine and Fred). Neil has rented tonnes of movies for us to watch this afternoon. He is going to get some Christmas lunch from the cafe and eat with me in my room. Merry Christmas everyone and thanks for all your support!
