So here's the story:
The day before we were supposed to leave for our Family Vacation in BC, I packed like crazy! I had a few weird feelings (I won't go into detail on the awesome pregnancy details) the next morning as we were preparing to leave, I called Dr. J. and literally as we were walking out the door, he decided to have me meet him at the hospital. I was having regular contractions, pelvic pressure, and had started to dilate. I was put on bedrest, and medications.
We decided to meet my family anyways in British Columbia. It would be easier for me to relax and to be on bedrest with a ton of family around to take care of Addison (and me) in Canada, than it would be for me at home. Dr. J. thought I was crazy, but we prayed about it and felt like it was the right thing for us to do. So we made a bed in the back of our SUV, and drove up to Canada.
And I am so glad that we went! Even though I was stuck laying down the whole time, it was SO nice to not have to worry about anything. My family was such a huge help, and I know that Ryan needed the break too! I ended up staying at my parent's house for an extra 2 1/2 weeks after as well for extra help.

|Addison liked to pretend to be a fishy or a "ma-maid"|
