So a few weeks ago I told you that my best friend had been admitted to the hospital as being in pre-labor but was only 30 weeks! Luckily, they were able to get it stopped and she was sent home on strict bed rest!
Well a few days ago, she sent me a message saying that she was pretty sure her water had just broken and she was going to the ER... Sure enough, she was right.. So she's been in the hospital under going whatever treatment necessary to keep her little girl from coming out!! She is now 32 weeks and while we know everything SHOULD be fine, no one wants to have a preemie...
Unfortunately, she just sent me a message 30 minutes ago saying she's in labor and the baby will be born tonight. She has to have a c-section and since she's progressed beyond being able to stop it, they gotta do it...
So Im laying here, anxiously waiting for news that everything is great and hopefully to have a picture or two sent to me.
I feel horrible that I cant be there with her!!!!!!!!!!!!! I havent even been back in North Carolina TWO weeks and this has to happen!! So, as this new baby enters the world, please keep them in your thoughts and prayers once more!!! Thank you!!!
(PS, sorry I've been MIA lately, I arrived safely in NC after 22 hours of driving BLAGH and have been pretty busy since! Im currently staying with a friend but am looking for a place to live.. PLUS I have to do a lot of planning for the house and baby and the soldier's return!! Im finally on a countdown!! YAY!!!!) OHH YEAAAHHH!! AND TWO DAYS BEFORE I LEFT NEBRASKA, DF GOT ORDERS!! HOLY CRAP! SO NEXT SPRING, I'LL BE MOVING TO ALASKA!!! My world has been off balance lately!!
**UPDATE** Baby Katie was born last night and weighed in at 4lbs 2 oz's! Which is more than they had thought! She came out screaming and pinked up right away! She scored an 8 and a 7 and although on a c-pap at first, she is going to be taken off of it today!!! Im still waiting to see pictures, but I am glad she is doing great!!
