I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas Holiday! It's starting to look like Malorie is making strides to be born earlier then she needs to be!! I spent last Tuesday in the hospital on meds to try and stop contracts and last night I spent in the hospital until 5am trying to stop early labor. They gave me every medication under the sun and the contractions just kept coming. Finally they said we have done all we can and sent me home with a prescription that is supposed to help slow down the onset of early labor. So far so good today, but looks like it wont be much longer now.
BP looks good and her weight is over 5lbs so they aren't too concerend if she wants to come early at this point. They feel confident that she will be healthy enough should it come to that. My poor body has been totally inhabited!! I'm not sure how much bigger I can get before it just gives up :)
Keep praying I can keep her in for at least 2 more weeks!!

Well really 6 based on my due date but because of previous blood pressure problems they plan to induce a week early. I can't believe it!! Time has really flown by for us! It was like yesterday when I finally realized I was even pregnant.
We have been getting things ready for Miss Malorie to arrive. The room is ready, her clothes are ready, bags are packed.. Yes, I'm a very overly prepared, overly organized OCD individual :) That's not a bad thing right ;)
Caden seems to be understanding what's going on to some degree. I can tell because he starting to act out in ways he never has before. I think he sees how much we are putting into preparing for Malorie to arrive and plus I haven't been as involved with him as much as I used to be just because the bigger I get the harder it is to chase after him. But, I think all in all things will work out just fine and he will love her as much as we do!
We are ready for Christmas to come and for the new year to be here!! This year is definitely going to be a year of "new things" starting with Malorie's arrival!! We can't wait! Here are a few photos from when I was 31 weeks along.. as well as Malorie's room.
