28 Weeks!!!

We made it! I cannot believe we are actually to 28 weeks. So far its been a great morning. My attending doctor came in this morning with good news. They only have my preliminary sonogram report right now but he said it looked very encouraging. He also said that as long as Gaines stayed head down, I wouldn't have to have a c-section. I thought a regular birth would be too stressfull for such a small baby but he says that even small babies tolerate it well.

My doctor also mentioned my diabetes test this morning. They had to repeat the first part of my test because "the lab messed something up". I had to have my fasting blood retaken this morning at 6 a.m. Luckily, I didn't have to re-drink the bathroom cleaner. My doctor said that even though they didn't have that variable to look at that everything looked ok and I should pass. So that was more good news.

I forgot to mention yesterday that the supervising sonogram lady was asking me some questions about our situation and I explained it all to her. She said, "Well isn't that a hoot?" I told her I hadn't quite thought of it as a hoot but that yes, it is an interesting situation. I just thought it was funny.

One last thing. Today is Beau's 30th birthday. I am so blessed to have such a great husband to be by my side on this adventure. I am so thankful for him today and always.

I know I have more to say but I can't think of it right now and I want to get this up. I'll probably post again later.

Hope you all have a great day! Please pray for us to make it to our new goal of 30 weeks.

Love to all,

Hi Brittany,
I have been following your blog and just wanted to let you know that I have a cousin who had twins at 29 weeks (both weighed 2 lbs) and they are about to turn 6 years old and are so healthy and smart!
I will continue to keep you, Gaines and Beau in my prayers!

Heidi said...

Yeah, so happy you made it to 28 weeks. I will say a prayer for you to make it to 30 weeks. I remember what it was like to keep my baby inside as long as possible, and I did. I had a girl born 37 1/2 weeks weighing 5lbs, 2 oz. Little but very healthy.

This is the first time I have commented. You have the best outlook and attitude about this. I am praying from Iowa. I think it is truly amazing how you and your family are dealing with the distance between you and you lil'guy! Praying daily for safe and healthy baby!
