Up and Running Again!

Some may know and some may not...but our latest "news." On Tuesday evening I went into early labor with the little one. I was feeling cramps, but I did not think they were contractions. I had been to the midwife earlier that day and they told me to rest. I was a good little momma and rested. However, the cramps did not go away. I was supposed to call the midwives back if I had 6 in an hour. By the time Dane got home...I had had 12. I still wasn't going to call because I just didn't think it was too much...There is always something weird in pregnancy. THANK GOODNESS FOR DANE! He told me to call the midwives just to check. Well, they wanted me to come in and get hooked up to some monitors that would show the contractions. Sure enough, they were real. Luckily, they gave me a shot and got the labor stopped in time, and no baby yet! wheeew!

I had to go on bed rest for a little over a day, but at my appointment today they told me I could go back to my normal schedule with a few modifications as long as the contractions don't start again. So, I'm trying to take care of myself. I know no one is, but I AM NOT A GOOD BED-RESTER! I like my outside sunshine! :) I'll tell you one thing that makes you listen to your body. The fear that if you don't you will be stuck in your bed until your baby comes!

Thanks all for your prayers and thoughtfulness. You are all so sweet.

As far as the little one: He's doing great as far as we know. He's moving around like crazy and his heartbeat is good. :) We can't wait to meet him. Hopefully he'll be a bit early...just not too early. I know, I'll have my cake and eat it too. :)

Another exciting thing: Because of the pre-labor contractions (which are not so good) we get to have another ultrasound and see the little guy again (which is very good!)

Tomorrow TGIF: I'm garage-sale-ing!


  1. oh, brooke! i'm so glad everything is ok! i will be praying that you carry to full term!

  2. SOOOOOOOOO glad that all is well. I will continue to pray for a healthy pregnancy...and you--you take it easy girl! Don't hit the garage sales too hard, ok?? :) Love you friend!
