32 Weeks Today!!!

I had every intention of posting yesterday, but some of my aunt's sweet friends decided to throw me a small impromptu baby shower and I didn't get home until late. Our peri appointment was quite disappointing. After receiving fluids just 24 hours prior, there were places in Wyatt's cord where it was already complete reverse end diastolic flow (that's the really bad stuff). We had not seen it that bad since the first time I went in for fluids, almost a month ago. So, as I type this I am back in the hospital receiving more fluids and the doctor is coming up on his day off to do more dopplers and see if the fluids are still temporarily correcting the blood flow. Even though yesterday's news was a bummer, we did decide that Todd should go ahead to JazzFest, as there's not anything he can do here and we felt confident I wouldn't deliver before this evening when he returns. My good friend, who just happens to be pregnant with triplets, is sitting here beside me to keep me company. It's like the blind leading the blind.

The peri was pretty downtrodden yesterday, especially compared to how optimistic we all were feeling on Tuesday. Todd and I were both very disappointed as we were starting to really believe we could make it to 34 weeks. We know the God is completely in control and He knows at what point these babies are safer outside than inside, and if it's before 34 weeks then that's fine. In the meantime, we are still praying for at least another week if not two.

More to come this afternoon...

Thanks for the update! We'll be praying for Wyatt's blood flow to strengthen, and that you are able to stay pregnant for a tad bit longer!
