Hospital update

Hello readers! Coming to you from the hospital today. Looks like I will be here at least until Tuesday possibly for the remainder of my pregnancy : (.

Last night I was trying not to get worked up over my precious Rangers (Anyone who knows me well knows I have been invested since first pitch of opening day this year) and while I was doing my part my sweet hubby wasn't so happy. He was watching two games, FSU and Rangers, both teams not doing so hot. I started getting braxton hicks contractions very close together (within the 6 min apart range) but never a consistent time. I went to bed and woke up at 2:15 or so with some significant bleeding. Those of you who follow my blog know I have placenta previa... this can cause tearing a weakening of the placenta since it is in the wrong spot.

The Doctors said Willa is not in any stress! Good news! I just need to be closely monitored and if I have any larger bleedings they may have to take her sooner than later. They have already given me some steroid shots to help develop her lungs and intestines quicker... just in case. Please pray that I hold up at least until 36 weeks (I am 31 weeks and 2 days)! This is the main goal. I will post more when I know more!

Thank you for the prayers!

Willa's Bedding

I am so excited! Willa's bedding is all done and it is everything I had envisioned! My mom is truly a servant and has worked countless hours on making this bedding. It is PERFECTION in every way and Willa will be such a pretty princess in her bed : ). Thank you mom! You are AMAZING and when I grow up I want to be just like you! Of course the lighting in the room is really bright so the colors seem a little off but you get the idea... Ever piece was made except for the fitted sheet.

Check it out!

28 & 2 days

Here we are... just had my 28 week checkup and my ultrasound to find out how my placenta previa is coming along. Good news is Willa is doing great and since I personally know my sonogram tech she snuck some great 3d images in too!!! One thing I have been praying for is that she has her Daddy's lips.... SHE DOES! They are big and oh so cute! She kept opening her mouth and we saw her yawn too! She is perfect! The down side is I have complete previa and am scheduled for a c-section on December 21st... which happens to be Kevin's BIRTHDAY! They will share such a special day together : ). This also means I will be home from the hospital by Christmas!! While I am sad I won't be experiencing real labor it is nice that this is all planned out ahead of time! I just ask for your prayers as previa can become dangerous for myself and Willa. It can cause major bleeding and in some cases can be fatal (not to scare anyone)! I just need to start taking it easy and not over do it for the next 10 weeks. Just send out those prayers! Here are some snapshots of our little beauty queen:
