good news!

i (and baby samuel inside of me) are back at home! i had contractions during the hour long drive down to the hospital, as well as a few as we were filling out the paperwork. then, at around 2:30pm i was put in a bed and hooked up to some monitors and....nothing happened! we were there for 3 hours and i didn't have one single contraction! i completely attribute it to the prayers going up for us, THANK YOU!!

my cervix is normal, the baby's heart rate is wonderful, and i'll have the results from my blood work tomorrow. God is so good.

i'm exhausted, so its off to bed :)

Heidi, so glad to hear all is well. Of course, we continue to pray for you and Samuel during these remaining weeks.

Last night I had a dream that a baby was born 9 weeks preemie (fancy that) by C-section because the doctor detected life-threatening distress. When the little one was born, he was fine (and beautiful!). I usually dream about my own little guy, but I'm not convinced this one was mine. I think all the trauma you've experienced over the last few weeks is finally getting to my pregnant brain.

I'm just grateful to hear that all is well for today.
