A Little Something Extra

34 Weeks!

Not only have we made it to 34 weeks, but I also didn't need to get an amnio reduction today. Praise the Lord! The baby looks great. The fluid level has not increased since my reduction last Monday, my cervix has only shortened slightly, and I'm still not dilated. Given the extent of my contractions lately, those are somewhat surprising findings. Even though I'm still on bedrest and taking a good dosage of Procardia, my contractions are coming more frequently and are becoming fairly painful at times. But the chances of making it to at least 36 weeks seem to be better. Given his surgical requirements, 36 is pretty important. 38 would, of course, be even better. So we're praying for that, though I'm not so sure my sanity can take four more weeks of bedrest.

Thank you so much for your prayers, everyone. God is definitely protecting this little guy.
