Stay in there Baby!

Our family on Thanksgiving morning, sorry it was on an auto shoot
and didn't work very well! But at least you can see my baby belly at 29weeks!

I've been having some lovely contractions over that past couple of weeks. And Dr. Seale did a test to see if I was a risk for preterm labor. It came back positive and has been okay until Thanksgiving night. I got some crazy contractions, but decided to go to bed. Then last night I got some more and they were hurting so badly not to mention the pains in my upper thighs and groin area. So, off to the hospital we went. They put me on the monitor and called Dr. Seale. He had them give me a steriod injection for baby girl's lungs to develop quicker and I have to go back tonight to get a second, no fun at all. It feels like they are putting jello in my body and make me shake like crazy! They also gave me a shot to stop the contractions. It got better for a while so they said I could go home and relax, bed rest style! Boo! At least I am basically done with Christmas shopping! As soon as I started getting my clothes on to go home they started back up and she said that is what is gonna happen and that is why I'll be on bed rest. Boo, again! Anyhoo, she is doing okay as far as we can see, good heart rate and dancing around, maybe a little gymnastics too! I am excited to see her and hold her, but if she came now that wouldn't happen, she is probably only about 2 1/2lbs and about 15inches long. So, bed rest it is to let her get a little bigger or hopefully a lot bigger! Keep her in your prayers and my body in your prayers, that it can hold up a while longer!
