A Little Update

Hello everyone! It's been awhile since we've posted anything, so I figured that I ought to update everyone on our happenings.

We had a little scare with Lily on the 8th that resulted in an overnighter at the hospital. At this point, it looks like everything will probably be okay, but I have been prescribed bed rest and Procardia to stop contractions until I reach Week is no fun, but it is worth it if it means that we will have a healthy and beautiful little girl! The doctors performed a fetal fibromectin test when I was almost 34 weeks--the test indicates whether or not I will likely go into labor in the next two weeks, which the doc's were worried about because I was having painless contractions every minute and a half. Luckily, it came back negative, so there is only about a 1% chance that I will have her before I am 36 weeks. We were grateful for that news! I am still required to go to the doctor more often, however, so they can check to make sure that the contractions are not causing any cervical changes. I am about 1 and 1/2 centimeters dilated and have been since no changes yet, which is another good sign!

Otherwise, we are staying busy with school. Brian is getting back into the swing of things and I am eagerly trying to work ahead so that, when I DO go into labor, I won't have too much work to make up!

Hope everyone else is doing wonderful! Keep in touch :)
