I am so thrilled to have slept last night. The first night of sleep was awful and pretty much non-existent as the doctors and nurses tried to figure out the appropriate magnesium level for me. Now that we seem to have the dosage about right it really impacts the way I feel. I don’t feel on fire all the time, no more double vision–hence my ability to actually create this blog and think straight.

The best Christmas present of them all however is that baby is still in my belly. That’s all I want for Christmas is to keep this kid in.

As a matter of fact. I have just changed my New Year’s resolution to “Keep baby in belly until April.” AND the only thing I want for my birthday is the same. I’ll be in here for both of those celebrations as

well if I get my Christmas wish, birthday wish and am able to keep my New Year’s Resolution.

Kayvan grabbed a bagel from the cafeteria this morning and it smells SOOOO good. If I can’t eat it I’m happy to smell it!…for now. We have a few people stopping in for Christmas here today. Dad, Jeremy, Kayvan’s mom, Andrew and Nikki will be here soon enough and Millie will probably come by later today too.

I mentioned my Christmas, New Year’s and Birthday wish earlier in this post. Today baby is at 23 weeks and 4 days gestation. Every day is a blessing but we need to get this boy to 24 weeks. Once that happens I should be able to come off of the magnesium and hop out of Labor and Delivery up to another floor with other mommas on hospitalized bed rest like me. There is a name for us I just haven’t learned what it is yet. The doctor came in and just told us that the current plan is to take me off of the magnesium at 6 a.m. tomorrow morning. Baby’s heartbeat has been strong and they are happy with all of the vitals so far. As much as I want to be off of this magnesium and eat solid food I asked the doctor to keep me on the magnesium until Monday. I know it works so It just feels safe. And once I come off of it, they can’t put me back on.

Time to start celebrating Christmas with my husband. MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!! I hope you got our card in the mail. (I designed it myself.)

  1. I just came across your initial post on what to expect.. I am very sadden by your story, yet hopeful for you & your family. You appear to be a strong women with a magnificent support team. I believe that you will make it through this unexpected detour & that you will get your Christmas/Birthday wish along with your New Year’s Eve Resolution. You have such a warm heart — I can see it in your writing. So you hang in there, you’re in good care. And before you know it you’ll be eating & feeling better too. May God Bless You & Your Family this Holiday Season. I’ll be back to check on your progression soon. In the meantime — Take Care Hun.

  2. Thank you so much for your kind words. Don’t be sad, we will all be just fine. My family is great and they are keeping me sane (instead of the standard making me crazy haha!)
