Hangin' in there


Once again, things are staying stable.  I continue to have contractions, but not too many.  Today I got another cervical length measurement.  It got a little shorter, from 18 to 11 mm.  They also checked to see if I was dilated at all and I'm not.  So that is great news.  Since I have been doing so good, the Dr.'s think I may be able to go home.  I will still have the same routine at home, but at least it will be a change of scenery.  But that is still up for debate.  They are going to have me get up and walk around today.  He wants me to get up 9 times and walk around the halls for a few minutes.  Then tomorrow we will check to see if it changes my cervical length at all.  Tomorrow is a big day because we will also be at 28 weeks gestation.  Everyone is so excited about that.  It is a really big goal for us!  So we are hanging in there, taking it one day at a time.  Please continue to pray for us, we appreciate it!

Oh how awesome that there's even a posibility that you might get to go home. God is good and praise Him that you've almost hit the 28 week mark. Such a blessing! Praying for you daily and looking forward to the update after you walk around and move up and down. I bet it'd be nice to be in your own bed and familiar surroundings again. Plus, then you'd also get to snuggle with your mchubby every night. :-)
