Getting good news on our babies...that is! Heartrates, fluid, and cords all look great. In the beginning, the doctors made it very clear to us that in such a high risk pregnancy like ours, something bad could happen at any moment of any day. We do not dwell on this and let fear and doubt consume our thoughts. Instead, that statement serves as reminder for us to celebrate and praise the Lord in all the good news we receive. So we are celebrating again today!
My contractions have been picking up over the last few days so Dr. Elliott put me on Motrin to hopefully slow them down. A potential side effect of Motrin is that it will decrease the amniotic fluid. We will be monitoring the fluid twice a week now so they will be keeping a close eye on that and can take me off the Motrin if needed. Please pray that I can stay on the Motrin to slow the contractions and that the amniotic fluid of all babies stays at an adequate level. Also today, I had the fetal fibronectin test. If the test comes back positive, it will mean that I have an increased risk of going into preterm labor within the next 2 weeks. Please pray for a negative result! We will find out tomorrow.
Nick and I were able to visit a quad family here this past weekend. I want to thank the Carlson's for opening their home and showing us the ropes of their quad "operation." The Carlson's (they are on my blog roll to the right) have a 4 year old little boy, Jared, and have 10 month old girls, Suzan, Anna, Bethany and Brielle. Wow! It was so awesome to see them in action and talk with Paul and Maria. It is so comforting to have so much support from all these amazing women (and their families) who have been through this before. Thanks to all you HOM moms...you have been great!
