Good news!

I have good news to report today....

  • my fFN was NEGATIVE again!

  • I am getting a terbutaline pump today!

  • and, the best news of all....Cydney is weighing in at 2 lbs 6 oz!

I had my growth scan this morning and was just praying she was over 2lbs. I couldn't believe it when the tech said she was 2 lbs 6 oz! It's insane that she is (almost) double Coy's birth weight. Thank you God!

I am also so thankful my fFN was negative again. That's a really good thing! Now, if you could just pray that I stay free of infections...I had another UTI this week. Not fun!

And, since I'm 28 weeks today, my doctor feels comfortable changing me to the terbutaline pump. If it doesn't work, we can always go back to the mag, but I am excited I will be IV free for the first time in 8 weeks!

Here are two belly pics as promised...not looking too hot, but that's what 8 weeks in a hospital will do for ya! =) Besides that, I don't really care as long as I have a healthy girl!

So thankful that things are going well and for some good news today. It really will be such a different experience for you having this child. Praying for many more weeks before you meet her! So fun to have a cute belly. Glad also that you have done some shopping for her...it must feel good to finally be able to embrace the joy and the reality that you are having a baby. Hang in there-

Hooray for big babies! I guess it takes an experience like ours to get excited about 2lbs 6oz! :o) So glad all is going well, Rhys and I enjoyed visiting with you and your mother.

Hoooray! 28 weeks and many more to come.....You look great for 28 weeks and still tiny. I looked that prego at 20 weeks this last pregnancy. But it's fun to look prego...huh? I just know and have a good feeling that you are eventually going to be going home for the last month (at a minimum)of your pregnancy to enjoy being pregnant and being with your family before she is here. Keep up what you are doing and stay positive. Take Care
