27 weeks!

Thought this day would never come! Last week seemed like it took forever to go by and now here we are at 27 weeks and, of course, I'll I can think about is making it to 28 weeks!

In all seriousness, though, no one ever thought we would make it this far so all the credit goes to our great God. I don't know why I keep panicking over these mini crises we have each week because every time the Lord has seen us through them. How forgetful we are as humans that "God does not forsake those who seek Him." (Psalm 9:10). No matter what happens He will not leave me or forsake me.

We had another encouraging sonogram today. Still have the good amount of fluid. Yeah! The baby has turned again so is in breech position, which isn't great but at least it means she has enough fluid to move around. It's amazing to me that I still have all that fluid despite her changing positions. The dr. still cannot explain the bleeding. It has slowed down thankfully but if it returns and gets too bad they might have to deliver the baby. So we are praying against that! We have postponed the MRI for various reasons (some of you have asked about that). We were told that it really is not going to help the neonatologist more if we had the MRI, rather it's more for our knowledge. We just don't feel at the moment then that there is any benefit to doing it but that may change depending on what happens in another week.

This is what we are specifically praying for this week:

-that with all if this fluid Maggie is able to master all the breathing, sucking, swallowing reflexes that babies need to survive
-that bleeding will stop
-that God will protect us against infection
-that we can have a smooth week this milestone week. The doctor says if we can make it to 28 weeks it is a huge milestone in babies' development.
-that Maggie will grow strong and safely inside me until 34-35 weeks.

Here's to another week marked off the calendar!
