A few days shy of 30 Weeks...


Finally I have hit the 30-week mark! It has been a ruff 30-weeks, but every day that I can keep Piper in here is wonderful....not easy though. I have already been to the ER once at 2 a.m. to stop me from going into labor. They gave me a shot and I was able to go home with no baby. I have had 2 steriod shots in my butt to develop Piper's lungs, I am on antibiotics in case my water starts to leak and I don't know it (happened with Kylin & she had a bad lung infection) I take medicine everyday to try to help slow down the contractions that I have almost every hour or SEVERAL times an hour. Plus, I am anemic (I just take Iron pills) and on BED REST...which is pretty much impossible with 2-kids! Although, Craig has been a huge help this summer being home most of the day.

So it has been a super fun pregnancy :) I am 50% effaced (thinned out) and dialted to a 2. So, like I said every day I can keep this little girl in my belly is a blessing. I want so badly to have a healthy little girl and not have complications and be able to take her home. Kylin and Mckay were both in the NICU for 3-weeks after they were born at 32 and 34 weeks. If I can just make it the end of August I will be so happy- even though my due date isn't till Oct. 13th. My Dr. doesnt think I will last that much longer though, but we are sure hoping and praying! So that is the update on this little baby :)

Usually people want others to send them labor inducing vibes! I will ssend some 'stay in there' vibes your way since I go late with my babies. LOL. You are such a strong girl. I hope everything goes well and you can take a healthy little Piper home from the hospital when you do. It stinks going home without a baby for sure!

I so know your pain! My DD was born at 34 weeks and DS was at 35 weeks. It's no fun! And I hate the shots they give to stop labor! Feels like youre on 6 cups of espresso!!
I hope sweet piper stays in at least till 36 weeks!!!

Thoughts and prayers heading to you and Craig! Good luck honey!

You look so great Kelley. I hope you little one keeps baking as long as she can, so she can avoid the NICU. Good luck with everything.
