Great news Catherine! I will continue to pray for you week-by-week. First stop 28weeks, then we'll shoot for 32! You are doing a great job hanging in there.

Hi Catherine,
How great to hear your update....You are AMAZING !! Can you believe how far you have come since your first post about your 24 hour being so hig ???
You are an inspiration and you and little Sam are in my prayers constantly.
My cousin just had a Sam last Tuesday - he was 32 weeks and weighed 1488 gr. and is doing beautifully !! Maybe that's an omen !?!?!?!?
Take care, Love Lucy

You can do it you can do it you can do it. When you are holding sweet Sam in your arms it will all be worth it. Keep cooking.

27 weeks!

Just one more week until the 28 week milestone, there is something about week 28 which make the medical staff happy, so we will be happy to reach it!

A little bump in the road this am, Sam had a pretty significant deceleration on the monitoring strip this am, big enough that the Dr wanted me to do a second strip a little later. I did, and all look ed well, I think little Sam was rolling onto the cord again, something we need to watch out for-

A am trying my best to either be sitting up or lying on either side now, as in my unmedical opinion the reclining or lying flat on the back position is putting too much gravity between baby and cord with the low level of fluid we have.

Dr O has been my Dr this week, as Dr S has been out of town at a conference, they are in the same Peri practice but it is Dr S who schedules ultrasounds and such, when he is back Thursday I assume he will tell me i will have an u/s scheduled for the following week, at 28w+. I feel like the baby has grown, so I sure hope the u/s reflects that too.

Tuesday marks the 3 week mark here - and today marks the 35 day mark till 32 weeks- i can do 35 more days right? I hope Sam can wait at least 35 days too -
