Thirty weeks and still pregnant!
Here's the rundown
-I've been on bed rest for 5 weeks now due to preterm labor issues
-Still having some contractions despite taking 10 mg of Nifedipine every four hours
-Trips to the MAC (Maternity Assesment Center) at Abbott Northwestern have been a weekly event, when I have more than 10 contractions an hour for more than two hours. A shot of Terbutalene seems to work each time.
-The baby's heart is handling these episodes much better now
-Despite the contractions I'm still only about 30% effaced - PTL!
-Weight gain: 15 lbs
-No stretch marks yet - Yay!
The nursery is coming together, thanks to my wonderful husband and inlaws:
I've been keeping busy by:
Working on cross-stitch for the baby's room-
(Not finished yet)
Reading and writing book reviews -
Still working a few hours editing audio on my HP netbook mini:
And spending lots of time praying for my husband!
