One month

It has been one month since being in the hospital. I can't say it has gone by fast, but it hasn't gone that slow either. I have 6 more weeks to go. I do hope the next 6 weeks will fly by. It is hard as I get bigger and I'm not comfortable in most positions. I have to move around a lot. But despite that, Dr. Kirshon is very optimistic about everything and is positive I will make it. Dr. Kirshon did say that I am almost to the point the babies would be viable (23-24 weeks). That is good news, but of course I want to make it further than that. I'm sure I will. It will get harder, but I will have to be tough and keep going each day. The nausea has gone away some. I still have a touch of it, but I definitely feel better than yesterday. It is getting harder to eat big meals. I have to eat little at a time as my belly continues to grow.
This weekend will be good as my parents are coming to visit. I haven't seen them in a month. It will be a nice visit. I wish they could visit more often.

  1. Hang in there Amanda- you can do this :D. I know it's difficult and you're tired of it all, and in pain a lot. But it will be worth it! You won't ever want to do it again of course, but you'll never regret it. :D

  6. I know it's uncomfortable. Try to focus on feeling those babies moving around. It is so fun to watch them move and imagine which little limb you are seeing. You're doing an incredible job! Hang in there momma!
