What a Little Stud!

Our little guy is such a stud just like his awesome daddy! Tyler has been an amazing support for me during this time and is doing so much to help make this easier in any way he can! I can't express just how much I love this man and how grateful I am that Lincoln is going to have a daddy like Tyler!
28 Weeks

I had another biophysical profile done today, which was actually the best sonogram I've had yet just because the technician was so nice and explained everything without me even asking questions. Lincoln is just such a fighter already, he passed with flying colors this morning and got 6 out of 8 on the test!!!!! The action that he didn't pass on Friday was breathing movements and he did that today! They also measured more amniotic fluid than on Friday. Today I had around 3 cm instead of 0.9cm on Friday! I am so proud of that little guy! He is still breech with his butt down and folded in half like a pancake with his head up by my belly button and his legs straight up next to his face. The chances of him turning are pretty little since he doesn't have much fluid to float around in so we're just planning on having a c-section unless he surprises us and does a complete 180.

Yesterday marked my one month anniversary of being in here! We've come so far since my water broke at 24 weeks, it's incredible! The Neonatologist is going to meet with me sometime in the next day or so and talk about what I can expect now if he was born instead of a month ago. It'll be interesting to hear what she has to say. I just know that Lincoln is one tough little guy to be doing as well as he is with no fluid! "Why do this the easy way when I can show everyone what a stud I am!" :)

    I was out jogging at 5:15 a.m. and made little Lincoln, you, and Tyler the focus of my prayers...and the main part of my prayers was that he would have breathing movements! God has SO BLESSED YOU!
