I am sorry that she is not going to be able to cook much longer, but you are far enough along that the baby should do good. Even though I know it must still be scarey. Atleast you are going to be at the hospital in the best possible hands.

Hey Susan,
SO sorry to hear that things are starting to go down a bit. I am wishing you those 3 weeks!! Try to stay positive, I know it's hard. As bonnie said, if you can, we would love to hear some updates on you...maybe your dh could post once in a while? You will be in my prayers.

Good Luck, and my prayers are with you. I am glad that you will be in a position where you can be very closely monitored. I was also on hospital bedrest/observation for a few weeks before my daughter was born. Looking back, I know that is what was best for me and for Emily Kate. I know it helped save both of us! Keep us updated!

Lots of luck and prayers to you Susan. Keep that little one in as long as you can and keep yourself happy if possible. If my Caitlyn can make it being born at 30 weeks and be a little 26 pound spitfire at 19 months, your little one has a fighting chance:o)

Susan, ((((hugs)))

Sorry to hear you have to go in.. hope you can stay cooking your little one a bit longer. Glad to hear the hospital are taking such good care of you.

Hospital bedrest is hard.. but they can keep a close eye on you and baby.

Be thinking and praying for you to go as far as you can.
