Pregnancy Update - 30 Weeks

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!

  1. Spending lots of time praying for your husband- what a wonderful way to pass the time!


Your comments are such a blessing to me.

"Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. " Hebrews 10:23-25
