Due Date


Well today is the day my baby should have been turning one. (Or a few days after with my history 😉 ) Instead my wonderful lil’ guy came to us 6 weeks early! He’s such a sweetie and so very strong. Life with him is amazing ❤

He gets into EVERYTHING!!!!


Day 29


Not much new going on today. I have been feeling a little crampy and I had a few contractions this morning. Hopefully this isn’t the start of labor. I’ve made it this far…..I’d love to get another 2-3 weeks. The longer he stays put the less likely the baby will need to stay in the NICU. My MIL has arrived. 😐

Is Today THE Day??


I have been feeling a little “off” all day. Nothing that I can put my finger on. I’ve also been losing more fluid. I had 2 small gushes and a continual leak all day. I’ve also been feeling a little crampy. So….only time will tell if this is THE day!!!! My ob said if contractions start they will not try to stop them. I’m guessing the baby is about 3 pounds right about now.

My Trip To L&D


Friday night was going good. We were all ready for the big snow storm to hit. Hubby & I were watching tv in bed, the little ones were sleeping & the big boys were doing their thing in the family room. Then I felt it. A contraction. But that’s not a big deal. I’m 27 weeks and braxton hicks are to be expected. But then exactly 4 minutes later I felt another. This went on for almost 45 minutes. I was getting nervous. So I called my OB and he said to get to L&D right away. What a night for this to happen!!! So off we go on our 30 minute drive to the hospital. I get in and they hook me up. The contractions had tapered off. They did a sonogram as well as an internal exam. I wasn’t dilated and my cervix was still long. I was contracting some but not as regular as before. The OB gave me a dose of brethine and sent me home. Of course we were driving home as the snow was starting. I’ve had a few contractions today but nothing regular. So now I have been ordered to limited bed rest….how fun!!!
