Well I finally got around to getting a blog set up for us. I've been meaning to do it for quite some time now and with our little guy on the way I thought now would be the best time to start and help kept family and friends updated (especially now with our special circumstances).
For those of you reading who haven't heard what happened, my water broke last Thursday May 14 very early in the morning. I woke up to what I automatically knew was my water but was in denial for a little while and tried to go back to sleep. Eventually I got up to go to the rest room and everything gushed. Knowing that I was barely even 24 weeks pregnant I was horrified! Tyler called my OB and we left the house for the hospital. Little did I know was that would be the last time I would see or be at my house for quite awhile.
Well we arrived at the hospital around 6am and called my parents on the way so they could pray and pass it along. After getting to the hospital and getting examined they realized that I wasn't in labor and put me in a room to monitor me, thinking I would go into labor at any point. The first five days after a woman's water breaks preterm are the most crucial because they hold the highest chance for her to go into labor at any time. So I've made it past those five days and now am on day nine and am 25 weeks 2 days! Every day that goes by that I can keep this little guy in there is a blessing!
I learned yesterday that there is absolutely no chance for me to be released to bed rest at home instead of the hospital. I knew that in the back of my mind but was kind of holding onto a little bit of hope that it would be possible if things sealed back up. So for the sake of our little guy I hope this is a long stay for me here in the hospital.
I will try and update this regularly since I don't really have anything better to do! :) Please continue to pray for us through this next phase as we wait on God.
