28 Weeks 5 Days

It's Steve again.

Jen is still on the high risk floor. The bleeding has slowed down, but she is still having contractions. They aren't allowing Jen food in case of an emergency C-section. She hasn't had anything but a few ice cubes in over 24 hours.

Baby girl tested the emergency delivery system earlier today. Her heart rate dropped for a prolonged amount of time due to a cord compression. Within seconds a large medical team arrived to take Jen to the OR. But luckily a change in baby's position relieved pressure on the cord and her heart rate has been fine since. It was scary but reassuring to know that the staff could respond so quickly.

We will keep everyone updated.

Thank you to everyone for your thoughts and prayers.
