wanted to drop by and let everyone know that I am in stable condition. Thank GD I have not contracted.
My water did break for Baby A, but since amniotic fluid replenishes itself the baby is still ok, even though I do leak.
The main thing they look for at this point is:
2) Infection- since you have a higher risk of infection when your sac is ruptured.
They take my blood every day (to check for infection) and I am hooked up to the monitor 24/7 for the babies heartbeats/ contractions. I have an iv in as well that supplies fluid, and am on antibiotics.
They did a sono today- like they do every day to check fluid and movement. Turns out it seems as though my cervix has now closed. My doctor believes that the sac was pressing down on my cervix which is what caused it to open in the first place. Now that the water is less, it is not weighing down on my cervix. My doctor also said that since I am almost 30 weeks, the lack of fluid isn’t as important at this point.
Baby A weighs 3.3 pounds, and Baby B weighs 3.8 pounds. Not sure how accurate that is, but I am hoping it is.
Otherwise, I am just happy that I am still pregnant….
I am in a high risk room which bums me out. No window, and the nurses are not too nice. You ring the call button and you wait 30 minutes before someone comes in. This whole situation has been hard, but as my husband says: we must look at the positive. He has been my rock throughout this entire process. He sleeps by my side, and helps me with the bedpan (since I cant get up)… he does it all. I couldnt have picked a better husband or father.
Thank you all for keeping me and my girls in your prayers and thoughts. I know that they are helping. Now, I am praying to reach the 32 weeks mark…… one day at a time.
