Please say a prayer for my best friend Jenni, her husband Tim and the little guy inside her. Jen is currently 25 weeks pregnant and she was put on bedrest today at Spectrum. As most of you know she lost Addison last December at 23 weeks so to get this news today was scary and brought back those memories and feelings. This pregnancy she has been watched carefully and has taken a lot of precautions. They never were able to determine why she went into labor so early with Addison. She has been going every two weeks for ultrasounds to a doctor in GR that deals with high risk pregnancies. Her cervical length went from 35 to 17 since her appt. 2 weeks ago. Thankfully she has not had contractions so its just a matter of laying low along with some steriods for the baby's lungs at this point. The doctor said if things didn't change or if the cervical length increased she could possibly go home but it would be strict bedrest at home so its going to be a long couple of months for Jen. The doctor wants her to at least make it to 27 weeks and every week beyond that is better yet.
Guess I am going to have to haul the sewing machine to Spectrum to keep Jen occupied! This may force her to get going on a blog too so we can all stay updated!
We love you Jen, Tim, and Baby De Haan and are praying for you!
