Stable Mabel

Today we had another routine non-stress test. Baby Girl was showing off and had 3 nice long accelerations. She looked like a more mature baby. It is such a relief to have another successful test behind us.

The doctors on rounds were discussing me outside the door before coming in (not sure if they realize how much their voices carry). They told the new doctor on rotation that I was "Stable Mabel." I can't think of a happier description right now.

Anneliese enjoyed another wheelchair ride. As we returned to my room she said "Something's wrong with my belly....yeah...I'm gonna go to the hopital and get it better...I'm gonna stay in the hopital with you ever and ever and ever." There are not words for how much I miss her.

Today when I was struggling with being hospitalized I had a bit of an epiphany. I fully realized that each day here is not a burden-it is a gift. A day in the hospital is so much better than what the alternative would mean. This is my new mantra for when I want to sign myself out and run home.


  1. I've been thinking about you and remembered you had a blog! I am so happy to read about this positive test! Baby Girl is strong like you. I'm praying for you and her. I hope God needed my Sophia as an angel so she could look over little ones like your baby girl. Stay strong and positive! Sending big hugs! Kathleen, mommy to angel Sophia (PROM)

  2. I'm so glad the stress test went well, and that she's head down now. I know the hospital bed rest is so hard, especially when you have a little one at home you're missing terribly - but you're such a great mom to this new little baby for being willing. You're doing a great job for her. Hang in there and know there are a bunch of other prom queens praying for your family and especially for your baby girl! (Misty from the kanalen list)

  3. You have a great attitude throughout this. I'm so glad you found my blog because that's the main reason I started it. Most of the people I know didn't even know I was pregnant when I started the blog, I did it for other people who might experience pPROM. Being head down is such good news, as is a full tummy! I'm bookmarking your blog so I can keep track of your story.
