34 WEEKS back at home

Well we are almost at 34 weeks and due to maintaining fluid levels. Doc gave us the option of staying in the hospital or returning home for a week and having a couple doctor's appointments before the ninth.

Well I guess you could never pick which option I chose. Yep that is right I stayed at the hospital....just kidding we are home safe and sound. Loving it...but man at least at the hospital I was guaranteed human contact every four hours for my temperature to be taken. At home I talk to my dog. But It is wonderful to be home. Too see the nursery and be able to ask Adrian really nicely to do some cleaning. cuz man does the dust settle when you are away for 4 weeks. Adrian is great at picking up, but I like things dusted, vaccummed, sweeped, mopped and disinfected. With two boys living in our house.....I am impressed by how well kept it has been for 4 weeks.

We are excited....home for peace of mind and then back to the hospital for inducing next week. Then we have a little one....and that brings a flood of emotion.

33 weeks Baby update

ok....so i can't guarantee, because both of my doctors tell me different things. But the one Doc said this morning our goal is August 8th which will be 35 weeks. I ask does that mean we will deliver that day...he said if they can get me in that day yes. I am assuming labor and delievery is the they. So I am in much better spirits knowing I only have 14 days and 6 hours left of this hospital stay with out a baby. WhoooHOOO. He said there is no reason to wait any longer at 35 weeks. So I believe he knows what is best. I guess we increase chance of infection and other things the longer we wait past that point.

So that is the latest. I have to admit it is nice having a date to look forward too. It was starting to get hard not seeing the end and then having the information switch from week to week. I believe I am ready to be a mom...we have bonded enough we need some face to face bonding. I am ready to hold, nurture and spoil this child.

32 wees

well today is July 19th and we have now accomplished two weeks in the hospital and we have made it to 32 weeks. WHOOOOHOOO!!!!
To give everyone an update, we are all doing well. Baby is active and healthy, growing at a normal rate. Mom is getting bored but on the otherhand is at peace knowing the baby is being monitored. We are being loaded with information and we are just trying to absorb it all. Who knows what we are going to need to know.

Thank you all for your prayers and thoughts. Know that they are being felt.

Well on friday July 6th we were admitted to the hospital for dangerously low fluid...which doctors are saying is due to ruptured membranes. from what I have gathered this means my water has broke and it is slowly leaking out. We are being monitored for infection and the baby for distress and activity level.

So far we are doing well. Baby is very active and seems to be loving the fact that momma is resting and spending her day talking to him.

We are on bedrest and staying at Memorial in south Bend. we are hear for the duration of the rest of this pregnancy. we are praying we make it to 35 weeks. WE are at 31 weeks today. Yippppeeee!!!!!

I want to say thank you to everyone who has offered help and their time. It has been wonderful to feel so supported. Prayers have definitely been felt and keeping me calm, cool and collected. Thank you!!!

Baby update

We are now at 30 weeks and we are now at 5cm of fluid. We have the doctor worried now. He is still active and reactive which is a good sign. Great sign....so we thank God for that. I am going to force fluids tonight and get checked again in the morning. If I am still low on fluid...I will be admitted to the hospital for observation and IV fluids. Hoping to increase my fluid levels.
That is what we know right now. the rest is hypothetical depending on what the results are tomorrow.

Thank you all for your continued prayers for the little man...he needs to stay in there at least 4 more weeks, preferably 6 weeks. We will continue to keep you all updated. Thank you again.
