Preterm labor: Day 8

2.23.2013

Yesterday we completed one week in the hospital since this ordeal began.  I am so proud that we made it this far.  He is still only 32 weeks but 32 is better than 31!  I have continued to have one "scare" a day where he contractions pick up and get regular.  As I sit here righting this update, I am wondering if these current contractions are going to be the ones.  It's been about two hours of regular contractions though and they don't seem to be increasing in intensity so I think it's probably another fake out.

My Eva spent a couple nights at home with her dad.  He has brought her in to is it me but she really hates coming.  We doesn't really want anything to do with me.  I am able to intellectualize the fact that she is confused and mad at me because everything has changed its hard not to take it personally.

Baby Nate is still doing great.  He is right at 4.5 pounds and continues to look perfect on the monitors.

We're hanging in there.  Thank you for all of the kind messages.
