Camp Bedrest Day 28: great report on baby

Yesterday Grant and I went in for a growth ultrasound and speculum exam-- and received awesome reports from both! Baby girl is in the 79th percentile, weighing in at 3 pounds and all of her organs looked great! One of the many silver linings of this experience has been how frequently we get to hear her heartbeat (during non-stress tests) and see her swimming around on ultrasounds. The speculum exam showed everything continues to be stable and no further dilation, pessary in place and baby is still head down not breech like two weeks ago! 

Photo I discovered on Grant's phone from when I was first admitted into the Hospital, not knowing it would be a month long journey or that we had much of a chance bringing this baby girl to full term! Sweet Grace listening to her sister's heartbeat looks as glum as we all felt

On my end, doing okay and really happy to be home and spending more time with Grace. Physically, I feel like I've hit a wall- my bones constantly feel like someone is "flossing" between them and my muscles feel like forks are tearing them apart like pulled chicken while also battling heartburn for the first time ever. Not huge deals, just a new normal to get used to. All to be expected after 4 weeks flat on my back.  

Looking forward to play dates with friends and their little ones, binge watching anything on Netflix and cooking this baby girl to term! Tomorrow we (either my mom or my mother-in-law) will do my first at-home P-17 intramuscular injection (nothing like having loved ones shoot you in the bottom!) but so far the perks of home Bedrest are far far outweighing those of the hospital (food is 100x better!)   

Thank you again for walking beside us on this journey, love when we can report such great news to those who have so generously kept our family in their prayers!
