Acara, I am continuing to think of you and your wife often. Hang in there, I know how difficult it is to live in a hospital...when you really want to be elsewhere... Be well!

Having watched and waited anxiously throughout the too-short pregnancy of my daughter-in-law, I know your stress. My prayers are going out to you all. Hang in there, each and all.

Got mama a little "pick me up" today ..... hospital gowns are just so boring, so I expanded mama's wardrobe options a little.

Pretty sure we'll offend someone on the hospital floor with this one ...... but it made mama smile Very Happy

Now you know Acara, you have to keep that one, because when that kid is a teenager, you are going to want to pull it out and tell him/her for the 1001th time just how much you sacrificed and belabored over him/her and how much he/she is indebted to your loving watchfulness and worry and concern (really stress the emotional suffering part) and, well, just trust me, it will be a great tool for future years.

cheers

LOL YEP ..I do that with my teenage boys...I tell them how many hours of labor with no pain medication I had to endure!!!

It's because I've BEEN a 6+ month pregnant woman that I think it is hilarious.
when you are in that shape, you need the laugh.

How did we have babies before ultrasounds? They didn't do those when I was expecting my kids.

Awesome shirt!! Awesome pic!!! Keep everyone thinking you are nuts. Sanity isn't all it is cracked up to be anyway.

Acara,

I have been away from the forum for quite awhile and just read this about your wife and baby.

I absolutely love the baby pic! The baby looks safe and beautiful.

I love the shirt for mama - too funny! Very Happy

Humor helps during stress.

My best to all of you.......

Thanks gain everyone.

We are at week 27 now .... 1 more week until "better odds".

We've kinda settled into hospital life now & things are a little less stressful. Hospital staff has come to terms with the fact that I'm competely insane and are tolerating my antics much better now (just FYI, nurses are putty-in-your-hands & you can get away with just about anything, if you bring in the right yum-yums, 3 hours before shift-change Very Happy ).

Found a new wardrobe addition for mama & it should arrive today....

I'm so happy he/she is staying put. I have a one year old, and after having him, my whole outlook on babies/children changed-- not that I didn't like them/want them before, but I have a much better appreciation for how a parent feels, and you ARE a parent already.

I don't know you very well since I'm so new to the forum, but I keep checking back on this thread because I care about you even though you're a relative stranger. So, I don't know if it means much, but you're in my prayers and thoughts.

Thanks again all.

We talked to our lead-high-risk DR today & he did a good job of laying out our situation ...

a) we are staying in the hospital for the balance of the pregnancy
b) good chance of making it to 28 weeks ...anything after that is icing on the cake in our situation.
c) baby is also "breach" ..... *duh*, been doing 2x/week ultrasounds ..... kinda knew that, LOL
d) DR said he'd eat his labcoat if we made it past 32 weeks ..... We'll take any delivery date that starts with a 3, instead of a 2 ... no problemo Very Happy


So needless to say ... we are spending the night trying to slim down the baby names list, picking nursery colors, etc .... since now we have 3-5 wks vs 8+ weeks we we woke up this morning.

No biggie ...we'll take what we can get & be as happy as clams!

Oh heck. One of my babies was breach, and she turned a week before delivery (full term). So you never know. Smile

Really what happened was her older brother would poke her. I think this made her flip upside down. I researched on the internet and found these weird ways to turn your baby back around (NO I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS) and anyway she flipped back. The dr. was shocked.

Her brother is still poking her, and she is still flipping out...

Anyway, congratulations! Everyday that baby is growing stronger. Yay!

The positive thoughts and prayers from people who care, whether they know you personally or not, can work miracles.

I experienced this firsthand with my daughter.

I admire your strength, humor and positive attitude and outlook; these things are sometimes hard to come by in these situations. Adding my positive thoughts and prayers for you, wife and baby.

Come on eveybody, a collective think 3. Acara says anything starting with a 3 is better hope for baby Acara, so I've been chanting three, three, three as I putter in the garden. I figger the garden is where I am closest to his family.
