I am 24 weeks today. This is a milestone that at one point seemed impossible. While we are nowhere near being out of the woods it is so gratifying to watch time pass.
My hospital stay has been uneventful thus far. My goal is to be the most boring patient I can be. I have received both doses of steroids to help with lung maturation and am also now on antibiotics to prevent infection. Depending on how far the pregnancy continues they may give me a second round of steroids down the road.
Tomorrow I should be moved to a room with a view. Well, at least a better view than the brick wall I currently stare at. With any luck I may be able to have the room to myself for a bit.
Baby Girl is doing well and has a very strong heartbeat. If I hadn't seen otherwise on u/s I would swear she has 16 elbows from all the pokes I get. Right now enjoying her movements is the highlight of my day. I really cherish this time with her.
Anneliese came for a visit today and turned the foot of my bed into a piano. We had many wonderful performances to watch. She seems to be adjusting to this new change fairly well, thank goodness. She actually thinks my room is "so beautiful" and loves the cafeteria food.
