The last 24 hours has been quite the roller coaster. I went to the ob yesterday morning and they performed a test of me which unfortunatley came back positive. So, that means I'm at high risk for delivering baby Logan in the next few weeks. I have been put on bed rest and can only leave the house to go to ob appointments. Also, as a precautionary measure, they wanted me to get steroid shots which accelerate the growth of the babies lungs. You get two shots and they are given within 24 hours. I got the first one this morning and I'll get the second one tomorrow. I had these with our first son Sawyer, and I am convinced that is the reason he has done so well. So, I am grateful to get them even though I hate getting shots.
We have been able to get child care for Sawyer in our home which is such a blessing. I cried and cried yesterday at the thought of him not being home with me, so I am so grateful that we can have help in our home so he can be in a place where he is familiar. It is so hard to be in a position where I can't be the mommy I want to be to him right now. But, the blessing is it is for a short amount of time.
The ob is optimistic that we can hang on a few more weeks. We are praying I can make it to 36 weeks. Of course every day, every week is a milestone.
So, right now I'm hanging out at home trying to get rest. I have been working on a knitting a sweater for Logan and also piece together a few scrapbooking projects. Hopefully I'll have something to share later on in the week.
I hope you are having a good week. That is all from our neck of the woods.
