January 13 baby update

Character-building can summarize today. It started off well - I got up early, got a shower and breakfast. Morning tests went well and I had two visitors. In the afternoon, things started to change. I found out my amniotic fluid levels are down further and the doctors didn't love our little one's heartbeat rate tests. I ended up being on the monitor for nearly seven hours and was moved back to the labor and delivery unit. My heart was broken again - Jack was supposed to visit tonight, but they don't allow little ones in labor and delivery. They actually were going to make an exception for him after seeing my reaction, but it was easier to just ask Maria to keep him so he could have a normal evening and Jeremy could be here with me.

But - we made it through another day. My tests were good enough that I've avoided any inducement tonight. I'm glad - being in this labor and delivery room, with the little baby warmer looming next to me, I'm glad I've bought another day for our little miss.

Until tomorrow...

  1. Jenn, I'm hoping things are still at status quo and that BabyGirl is still percolating where she should be.

    I spoke to my mom and let her know what you'd posted so far, she said to tell you she's thinking about you.

    We're both sending good thoughts your way. I'm glad you have such a wonderful support system close to you and only wish there was something I could do to help as well.

    Love you, cousin!
