Okay so I will start this off and let everyone know we are still in the hospital and still pregnant. It was a very emotional week, but we made it and are cautiously optimistic. To use the old cliche, one day at a time. We do not want to think to far ahead, we just want each day to be slow and boring, as no news is good news. So we are hoping for more boring weeks in our future.
Basically here what is happening. Amy-Jo is having contractions, pretty mild and random. She is the size of a normal pregnancy at 36 or 37 weeks, so the doctors say that contractions are not that uncommon. The fear is that the contractions will worsen and lead to preterm labor. The first real goal is to get to viability. Basically this is the age the babies have a chance at survival. This happens at 24 weeks, not to say we are content with 24 weeks, but one step at a time. For now the doctors feel like we are stable but, as we have found out a few times already, with a multiple pregnancy things can change in a moments notice. This is the reason we try not to get too high or too low. We beat the doctors predictions for this last week and we intend on doing it again next week.
As for Logan. As of last Monday he still had a normal heartbeat and was still alive. The doctors are seeing some abnormalities with his heart that could lead to some serious complications. He is a fighter and I truly believe he will make it. The odds are stacked against him, but I am pretty sure someone forgot to tell him that!
We go in sometime Monday or Tuesday for our next sonogram. This past week we lost one of our perinatologists to a tragic choking accident. Dr. Patton was in a coma most of the week and passed Friday when he was taken off life support. So please this week keep his family in your prayers.
We want to also thank everyone who has been keeping us in their thoughts and prayers these past weeks. It's with your support Amy-Jo has been able to stay positive and fight to keep our babies safe. So please keep up those prayers! I will try to update a little more often as I know many of you check in a few times a week. And with hopefully another boring week ahead of me I have no excuses!
