Today was another day of ups and downs. Last night, Joey started feeling contractions around 2 am and was moved back to Labor and Delivery. Once again, things settled down with the help of medication, and she was moved back to the regular floor this evening.
While the doctors have different opinions about what the days ahead may bring, we all celebrate the fact that we've made it to 25 weeks.
I feel like I should be in two places at once - with both my wife and my son. Joey assures me that JP needs me more, but I still wish I could be both places.
This morning, I went to APU to catch up on some work. Then, I took JP to his Gymboree class. It was pajama day, and he wore his gorilla jammies. We crawled around with flashlights hunting for animals. Later in the day, Joey and I had a consultation with the Pediatric Intensive Care team, and they told us what to expect in the event of an early delivery. Of course, we're still hoping that Joey will stay pregnant for many weeks to come.
They did an ultrasound to estimate the baby's weight (1 lb, 10 oz). And guess what else we learned? It's a GIRL!!
