A Good Day

Any day we get with our baby staying put is a good day, they say, so today was a good day.

We're doing fine, Kicky and me...She's kicking (even got her foot wedged up near my rib cage for the first time today), heartbeat is just right, and with all the monitoring, we're getting good marks for either one of us showing distress. That and no more bleeding, and it's been a very very good day.

My perinatologist is from Denver, then today I met a second peri today who was doing the rounds and he moved here from Denver's University Hospital as well. Amazing.

Dr. P said today the reason they keep me here is due to the randomness of bleeding that can occur with placenta previa, and how it could become very serious very quickly. With me here next door to the Operating Room, they could have me in there and knocked out in 5 minutes, and the baby out in ONE minute. That's 6 minutes!

So the bed rest will be indefinite, and we're at 29 weeks 4 days today, and while our girl would be fine if she were born today, the goal is to reach at least 32 weeks, and any time after that is more gravy time.

That's about all I have in me today. I'll update again as soon as I can!
