weeks 29 and 30


29 weeks
 I finally got to wear this dress that I bought when I was 20ish weeks pregnant with Lincoln.  My water broke before I had the chance and then Caedmon was a winter baby.  So glad it finally got some use! :)

30 weeks


 
Symptoms:  lots of contractions.  like lots.  enough to send me in to be monitored.  For awhile they were 4 minutes apart.  Super, super tight but not hurting.  It hasn't changed my cervix yet so they were able to give me a shot of terbutaline and that stopped them right away.  They tested 
for Fetal fibronectin.  It's a test that if it's negative it's a good sign that you won't go into labor within the next two weeks or so but if it's positive there's a slight chance that you will go into labor in the next two weeks but really I could also go full term.  It's not a very reliable test if you get a positive, which I did.  So I was able to go home and told to rest and take it easy (at my dr appt the other day he told me the same thing but knowing I had two very active boys at home he joked about needing to send home a sedative for them) :)  So since being home now anytime I get up, the contractions start but as long as I'm sitting I'm fine.  Ah this is going to be so much fun :-/  I'm 31 weeks tomorrow.  
 


Weight: 24 lbs.

Movement: Lots still.  More kicks that take me by surprise lately because they are so hard.  

Sleep: Sleep has been good lately. Not too uncomfortable.  

Cravings/aversions/eating: I've slowed down on my food consumption a little.  Get full very fast and seems all my cravings are gone.  Not much sounds REALLY good anymore.  

Clothes:  I foresee mostly sweatpants in my future of couch sitting :)

Random: On my way to the hospital today, having contractions every couple minutes, knowing exactly what a 30 weeker is like if born right now......the perfect song came on the radio.  Building 429's "We Won't Be Shaken."  Here are the lyrics:

This world has nothing for me
This life is not my own
I know You go before me and I am not alone
This mountain rises higher
The way seems so unclear
But I know that You go with me so I will never fear
I will trust in You

Whatever will come our way
Through fire or pouring rain
We won't be shaken
No we won't be shaken
Whatever tomorrow brings
Together we'll rise and sing
That we won't be shaken
No we won't be shaken
Oooh oooh oh
Oooh oooh oh
Oooh oooh oh
No we won't be shaken

You know my every longing
You've heard my every prayer
You've held me in my weakness
Cause You are always there
So I'll stand in full surrender
It's Your way and not my own
My mind is set on nothing less
Than You and You alone
I will not be moved oh

Whatever will come our way
Through fire or pouring rain
We won't be shaken
No we won't be shaken
Whatever tomorrow brings
Together we'll rise and sing
That we won't be shaken
No we won't be shaken

We will trust in You
We will not be moved
We will trust in You
And we won't be shaken

This is just another situation that I get to Trust God with.  This boy's story is already written.  All his days are already written even before one of them came to be.  So I will walk this road of uncertainty knowing the One who is certain about it all, is completely in control of it.  I hate bedrest, 8 weeks of it was enough for a lifetime but I will do anything for my sweet boy.


Oh and I wish you all could've seen my nurse's face today in triage before she had my charts and history she was asking all about my previous pregnancies and the look of shock on her face as I kept telling her more and more was priceless.  :)  Oh and the entire time I was being monitored all Tyler and I were doing was looking at baby name lists and saying a name here and there and of course the other person didn't like it.  We got no where :)

That's all for now, will keep you updated, in the meantime pray that this boy stays puts until at LEAST 34 weeks.  3 more weeks....
