15 Days

I am hangin in there! The weather cooling has slowed contractions and made me much more comfortable. I am enjoying all the rain and thunderstorms so much. I've been passing time baking, cooking, cleaning, and coming up with creative things to do so time will literally fly:) I am sooooo ready to meet my lil man, but I am glad he is staying put thus far.....each day we are a little closer and he is that much more developed and ready for the outside world. I will tell you one thing in this world that would make me a million times more uncomfortable than I am at the moment and that would be leaving my baby in a NICU so I think of that as each day passes and he is inside me. I am greatful to God for allowing me to keep carrying Jesse even with all discomforts there are to be had and the fact that I am dilating and effacing early because I know he is safe and he is WITH me, his mommy who loves him more than anyone in this world ever could. I know there will still be a chance for NICU time with him being born at 35 weeks and 3 days, but I pray daily for God to hasten his development and for him to be able to come home right away. My last 2 were perfectly healthy at 35 weeks and 5 days with one receiving steroids and one not, but they were girls so I am really hoping my son is as much a fighter as his big sisters. Deep down I am at peace that he will be. I feel confident knowing he had steroids and knowing God is in control and will see his delivery through.

You are doing a great job! I hope he does well. All of my boys have been early and have had issues..I hope your little guy is safe. How early were your other boys?

Kat, my boys were 40W on the dot with IUGR and had issues at birth, 39w1d and healthy as could be, and 37w5d and healthy although smallish. My girls were the early birds though with the exception of Wyatt who had IUGR, NONE have ever had an issue in the hospital with breathing, temps, apnea, eating etc....knock on wood

Logan was emergency induction at 35 & 5 (no steroids) and he had a rough start for a couple hours and we stayed an extra day but he was able to come home with me without any problems.

Praying for the same for your little man!
