Still Pregnant


So, I totally jinxed myself in my last post.

My water broke when I was in bed last night. Because that's that kind of thing that happens to me.

So I'm writing this post, once again, from a hospital bed. But I'm still pregnant, which we didn't think would be the case in the wee hours of this morning- while the contractions were pretty strong through the night, they slowed down this morning and I'm only about 4 centimeters right now.

I'm here for the long haul, whether that means she's born today, or tomorrow, or in a week. The scary thing about ruptured membranes is infection, so they're keeping a very close eye on us both.

The big things we're waiting on today are the results of the amniocentesis to tell us if the baby's lungs are ready, and for my doctor to consult with my perinatologist and decide if they need to take the baby now or whether they can wait for me to get into active labor on my own.

I'm sure I'll be checking in...I will probably update Twitter more often than the blog. You can always see my latest few tweets on the left sidebar of my page.

Thank you all for the prayers...we can really use them!
