Baby K update

I know not everyone knows what was going on earlier this week, so I thought I'd give a little update on baby K. Monday morning I was admitted to the hospital for premature labor/rupture of membranes. I was released on Wednesday afternoon, without a clear diagnosis as to what happened, but blessed with knowing I'm no longer having contractions, and don't need to stay in the hospital until the baby is born.

I'm 33 weeks along, and was having contractions 2-4 minutes apart for several hours on Monday, we thought I was going to have to have a C-section to get baby K out since he's breeched. After pumping me with fluids and monitoring my amniotic fluid levels I was monitored for the next few days until my fluid levels were up and it was clear I didn't have a major leak! My contractions stopped and it appears as if everything's moving along smoothly now. The doctor is having me come in weekly and monitoring baby K closely. The really great thing about all of this is that the baby is doing wonderfully, his heart rate is awesome, he has fetal breathing with is a really good sign at this point and is moving around like crazy.

Thanks for everyone who prayed and called this week, we really appreciate everything and are so blessed by all of you! I can't wait for you all to meet baby K, but am glad it's going to be a few more weeks :)
