Everything went really well last night. Tiff's contractions subsided and, at one point, were down to 2 contractions in one hour. Excellent! Tiff got plenty of sleep (even though she has to turn over once every hour) and is feeling good this morning. Since she's been awake contractions have been about 6 per hour. We met with our RN, Melissa, who was encouraged by Tiff's progress. Since she had such a good night they have taken her off the catheter and allowed her to start eating food! Before this morning Tiff hadn't eaten anything or been able to get up since Saturday.
Tomorrow will be the babies 24 week birthday!! Awesome! Dr's consider this a great milestone to achieve! To celebrate the occasion Tiff was injected with a steroid shot:) around 10 a.m. to help with the development of the babies lungs, etc. In the same visit Tiff had a sonogram. Babies heartbeats still look great. They have sufficient fluid in their sacs so far. The cervix is measuring 1.80 cm, which is a little lower than what we'd love to have, but stable from where it was yesterday. Please pray for Tiff's cervix to remain as long as possible!
Well, I realize this entry is short, but everything is going as well as possible. I can't tell you how great it has been for Tiff to receive the texts, voicemails, e-mails, and blog entries. She loves to hear/read them all!! God is good!
Tiff and Jon
