Home Sweet Home...

Tuesday morning the peri came and did another ultrasound. They found a subchorionic bleed (which is a bleed between the placenta and the uterine wall.)

Other than that everything looked great. Fluid was fine, cervix was great, baby was active and growing well and baby's heartrate was good.

I was sent home with orders to take it very easy-- basically modified bedrest. No lifting, pulling, cleaning, straining, pushing, walking long distances, etc, etc.

Things are still wait and see. We have another appointment on Thursday morning. In the meantime, we are praying protection for our baby and wisdom for our doctor.

Also, starting Friday I can start getting P17 shots once a week. This is to prevent preterm labor (that I've had with my other children.) These shots are very expensive, but having child born before 37 weeks qualifies me for them. We are also praying that there are no issues with getting the shots approved. I've been told that each shot is about $1500 a WEEK before insurance coverage. EEKS!!!

My aunt is back in Virginia (I'm making my case trying to get her to move here!) and helping with the children. Our friends and church family have been AMAZING as well. We feel very loved and blessed.
