Not-so-good news

On Sunday morning, I had a few contractions while I was being monitored, so I was hooked back up to the IV to receive fluids (this means bye-bye to my normal clothes & hello to the annoying, way-too-big hospital gown that causes me no end of frustration). I also noticed that I seemed to be leaking a bit more fluid than normal. The rest of Sunday went well enough (no more contractions), but Monday morning I had a few more contractions & continued to leak more fluid. Today’s sonogram confirmed that I am indeed losing more fluid than I was before as I’m now down to 8 (normal range is 8 – 25) instead of in the teens like I was before. I talked with my doctor this morning & said that I just feel ‘different’ (it definitely feels like there is less ‘padding’ between Twosie & I). She said that this might be my week to deliver & ordered another NICU consult. I know that 30 weeks is infinitely better than where we were a month ago, but I really, REALLY would like to reach 32 weeks, if possible. Please pray that God will give us 10 more days! He’s done it before so there is no reason He can’t do it again!
