Well it has been an interesting week to say the least. I want to start with good news though. First I had such a great weekend. My husband's family came out and visited. They made so much food for us. We do not need to go the grocery store for weeks. I also had my first outing which was fantastic. You don't realize how much you miss the feel of fresh air and sun until you don't have it for awhile. We went to old city in Philly which was really nice. They also brought my dogs. It was wonderful to see them! They have been my "children" for the last 6 yrs so it has been hard being away from them the last month and a half.

I also had a doc appt on Tuesday and Andrew looks great. He wiggled his toes which is a great sign, his ventricles look normal and his cerebellum is looking more rounded (which is what it should look like versus banana shape like it was).  

So unfortunately now for the bad news. At the doc appt they saw my amnio fluid dropped quite a bit. They did some testing and realized my water broke or I have a tear in my uterus neither are good. I have been re-admitted into the hospital, put on permanent bed rest and will stay here until Andrew comes. So no more hotel living.  They are currently dumping a ton of antibiotics into my system to keep any infection away. I'm 26 weeks pregnant now and the goal is to keep Andrew in there until at least 28 weeks. If he makes it past that it is all gravy but the goal is 28 weeks. Even though he will still be so early there are less complications then there are now at 26 weeks. So please please pray we can hold on. All the prayers have kept us going so far. I'm so grateful for all of the love out there and I know Andrew can feel it too. I will try to update the blog as much as possible.  I'm just really trying to put all my energy into staying healthy and keeping him in there. Thank you again for all the prayers!
