Tomorrow will be the big 3-0! (No, it's not my birthday, that was in March!) To top that off, my cervix was back in the 30's yesterday!! Upper 30's that is. How thrilled am I to announce it has been a really good week??
I was pretty stressed through Thursday of last week. Then, I started a round of Indocin and the contractions calmed back down. I did not need a terbutaline for 60 hours! I have only had to take one a day since Saturday. This has helped bring my stress level is WAY down and I am back to just hanging out! It has been so uneventful that there is not a whole lot to write about. I thought I would drag the good news out over a 2 day span to keep the posts coming!
Dr. B had not received the ultrasound report when he came into the room on Monday. When I told him the numbers, he just laughed! I think I have the most random cervical lengths he has ever seen! Let's just say he was pleased with the news! One of the side effects of Indocin in decreased glomerular filtration rate (GFR)/urine output in the baby, which can lead to decreased amniotic fluid. As a result, he has been watching my fluid levels closely. Those numbers were also great. If things are still good Thursday and next Monday, my appointments will go back to one time a week. We should get another weight estimation by Monday. I am eager to know how much weight the little guy has gained. I had to increase my calories when I left the hospital and it is really showing on the scale. Please say some of it has gone to him and not just my hips and thighs!! :)
I hope the pics were fun to see. I purposefully did not include a shot from the backside or a shot of the face! They are both starting to puff up a bit! I am more than happy to let you think I am a tiny pregnant person. My belly is the ONLY firm thing on my body at this point. The rest is nothing but mush...literally...
I don't think it is coincidence that the contractions calmed down and my spirits were lifted on Thursday. It is amazing what a little prayer can do!! He has heard our pleas over and over. You would think I would learn to share it with my prayer warriors rather than hold it in. I am proof that there is POWER in prayer. If I would just ask!!! Thank you for being so willing to lift my concerns to the Lord!
I will let you know how Thursday goes...
