I'm going back to titling the posts with the amount of weeks pregnant I am. I guess it matters more now than ever. It was encouraging today to know that at 26 weeks, 4 days, we can round it up to 27 weeks. :)
Not a lot has changed since the last post, which is a good thing! Some of "my numbers" got better and some got worse. We've gotten interpretations on my condition from 4 different doctors now, and each one seems to have a little different take on things. We're just trying to maintain the status quo. Mornings are the worst part. They cut me off of food and water at midnight;come and draw my blood at like 4 AM, and then I wake up at 6 - 7. But I can't eat or drink anything until the doctor who's working interprets all my numbers and decides I'm not going to be delivering in the near future. This morning the doctor was busy and I had to wait until like 10:00. It sucked. Some of you know how I am with my water bottle-I'm addicted to it.
Jack and Jean went back to Hastings and Josh and my parents are still here. They're good sports. I can't imagine how boring this must be for them.
They had a nurse from the NICU come talk to us. She talked a lot about what to expect if Baby J is born soon. Obviously the longer she stays in there, the better off she'll be, but it did help us prepare if she comes sooner than we'd like. The nurse showed us preemie diapers and a pacifier and a blood pressure cuff. They were all so tiny. When they did an ultrasound on me on Sunday, they thought our little girl was about 1 pound, 15 ounces. Maybe she's up to 2 pounds by now. We hope so.
Well, that's about all I've got for today. I hope all my posts are this boring because no news is good news!
