Day 23

Well the last couple of days have been very uneventful. No news is good news around these parts. They did check my cervix yesterday and determined that I am dilated to a 4. Since I am not having contractions, my doctors are not too concerned about it. Hopefully I will stay at a 4 for a while, I am really hoping to make it to 28 weeks or beyond.

28 weeks is quite a milestone for little preemies. Chances of survival are excellent and risks for major complications decrease significantly. Although it is still way too early for a baby to be born, it's worlds better than 24 weeks, which is what I was when first admitted.

Have I mentioned that I have some pretty darn amazing friends? They visit me regularly, help out with Emory, and text me daily to make sure I am ok. I am a lucky girl. Last night a few of them brought me cheesecake and we played games. Best night ever.

Em and my mom came and spent the morning with me. We went outside to enjoy a little sunshine. Em sure loved my wheelchair and I just can't get enough of her these days. I am going to be in trouble when I finally get out of here, that girl will get away with murder.

Friday afternoon now includes a non-stress test. I do them twice a week. It's funny how routine my life has become since being admitted to the hospital. I actually kind of like it, does that mean I am getting old?

I can't believe it's already the weekend, for someone who just lays in bed all day, the time really is flying by. No complaints here.
