I just got back from my weekly appointment. I am trying not to worry too much, but they did notice today that my cervix is beginning to thin slightly. They told me to try to just take it a little easier than what I have been doing, but they do not want me on bedrest yet either. So, I need lots of positive thoughts that things will continue to go as planned and that I'll keep this bun in the oven for as long as possible. He needs lots more time to bake!!
As far as things with Grayden are concerned, all things continue to look good. His ventricles decreased in size on both sides and they can completely see his 4th ventricle as well. The ultra sound tech said today that he was showing off for her all day. When the maternal fetal specialist came in, he just kept remarking at how awesome his brain looked. I love hearing this kind of news.
My mom and Kara are here with us now. Robyn, Dave and the kids left on Saturday night and made it home safely. We thouroughly enjoyed their visit and had so much fun hanging out. It was so much fun to watch Zander actually play and interact with the kids. They were chasing each other around all week and making each other laugh. The neighbors below us are probably happy that they are gone; however we miss them very much.
So overall, another good news report. Lets just hope that I can keep my mind off worrying about all of the what ifs for the remainder of the time. I hate that I worry and am honestly trying so hard not to because I know that it is not going to help anything. So wish me luck as I try to take this one day at a time. I promise that I will be taking things a little easier. My biggest fear continues to be having to head to the hospital in an emergent situation, so lets hope that does not happen.
Grayden's 9th Birthday!
