False Alarm

Well, I thought I was in labor last night. I was having contractions about four minutes apart so we went to the hospital. By the time I got hooked up to the monitor, the contractions were two minutes apart. They continued to be that close together during the night, but never gained in intensity. So, no baby yet. I hope I don't have another false alarm!

Bed Rest

On April 8, I went to see my OB because I was having what I thought might be symptoms of early labor. Sure enough, I had already begun dilating. My doctor put me on bed rest, and gave me steroid shots that will boost our baby's lungs. We are praying for Katelyn's safety extra hard now.

I have been taking it easy these past couple of weeks. Channing's mom came to spend last week with us. She cooked meals and looked after Shelby while I spent the days in bed. Several friends have run errands for us, brought me library books and movies, and watched Shelby. I am so thankful for these dear people!

Please pray that Katelyn will not come too early. We want to have a safe delivery of a healthy baby girl. And we want to come home from the hospital with her!
