24 Weeks (Hospital - 7 days)

We have made it through the first 'milestone' of 24 weeks when most doctors feel the babies are considered 'viable' and could live outside the womb.   Of course we hope to go the distance but it is nice to breathe a little easier knowing that we have reached 24.  Morgan is stable with 4 or so contractions per monitoring hour.   She cannot feel the contractions which the doctor says is good news.  He says that if Morgan were at home, rather than in the hospital (where they know everything), she wouldn't even know the contractions were there so he isn't concerned at the number.  He will be more concerned if the number or the intensity increases.   Rather than look so far ahead to 34 weeks, he (and we) are looking at 2 week goals.   Our first goal is to get to 26 weeks and we all think that is possible.   Morgan is still strong and chill and we are confident that the doctors are taking excellent care of her and that she is in the best hands.  So wish us luck as we move on to 26!

Don't forget to email Morgan at
