26 Weeks!

Well, it is official. Brittany is 26 weeks pregnant. We can mark one goal off the list. The new goal is to make it until Friday, when Reed arrives.

The nurses checked Britt's temperature at 1:00 AM and it was 97.9. They checked it again around 6:00 AM and it was 98.1. So far, so good as we begin day 13.

When Britt posts, she likes to mention our visitors. Well, yesterday a good friend of mine visited us for the second time since we have been here. She came to pick up our laundry. This is the second time she has done this and I can not thank her enough. A task as simple as doing your laundry becomes a real question mark when you are living in a hospital. Thank you Elizabeth.

I'm sure Britt will post later.

Hey! I came across your blog from a friends. I just wanted to say YAY for 26 weeks!! My son was born at 25 weeks weighing in at 1 lb and spent 99 days in the NICU. I know 1st hand how hard it is to go through what your going through. But our God is a wonderful God and he sure works some awesome miracles! My son is now 3 years old and a wooping 40 lbs! He's a big boy..a far cry from the 1 lb he was at birth. Hang in there and please know that I am praying!

I am also a part of a wonderful group of moms and dads that blog thro. March of Dimes about their journeys thro. preterm labor and birth. If you ever feel like you are alone or just need someone that has been thro. the same things you have please visit www.shareyourstory.org .

Or you can email me at anytime..I am always here to talk!

(hugs)

Congrats Guys! I am catching up on the blog from the weekend. Kelly also gave us an update in our SS class Sunday. She told us about the Easter Egg Hunt Reed is going to get to attend. That is awesome and something he will enjoy. I know our kids look forward to it every year! Have blessed day and we will keep praying!

My cousin sent me an email this morning that made me think of you. Quote: "The will of God will take you no place that the grace of God won't protect you." Hope that's a blessing on your "26th" week milestone. angie sasser
