Another update

While not as good as the last two visits, today's appointment went well. My numbers were down a little today, 18-20mm. I can't say that I was all that surprised. I have had a few more contractions in the past couple of days. I took terb, which seemed to do the trick. I am still armed with a round of Indocin if needed for the next few days. He gave it to me last week "just in case" and I haven't needed it so far...

The little guy isn't as small anymore! His estimated weight was 3 lbs 8 oz. It is very exciting to see those numbers go up. Oh how I hope he hits 4 lbs while still tucked away, safely, inside!! It will be another 2 weeks before they take another weight estimate and that will be 2 days shy of 33 weeks!!!! Let's just get to 31 first! I am starting to get way ahead of myself.


The only bad news was EXTREMELY minor. I won't be taking that wheelchair trip to Target until next week! That is if things are still stable. "Let's get to 32 first." Of course, I am not going to argue with that one! What is another week at home when you only been to the hospital for the past 14 weeks? I think I can manage one more. I will only get out of Dr. B thinks it is safe. I am not going to take any risks when we have gotten this far!!


If all goes well, I will not go back to see Dr. B until next Monday. While I was relieved to hear he will be in town over Thanksgiving, I don't want to see him until December 1st!!!!!December... WOW! Who would have thought 14 weeks ago it was even possible for me to make it to December???? We are so blessed...

hmmm...I think with the right portion sizes of Thanksgiving Dinner, you might just be able to pack on those few ounces to get him to an even 4! Think dark meat, butter your butter, and PIE!I am thankful to see Gods work through you.
