Next Journey...

This has been a fabulous week.  I am now 33 weeks...

33 weeks

This weeks sonogram lead to fantastic news from so many angles.

33 weeks : Cute little foot and tiny little toes

1. Baby Grant is measuring, bones and all 3 to 4 weeks ahead.  He is measuring and weighing in as a 36 - 37 weeker.  I can't believe that he is already showing to be 6 lb 3 oz - YEAH!
2. My Preterm Labor hasn't worsened, nor gotten better... but hasn't worsned means that all this bed rest is doing its job.

And with these two good news bubbles, my doctor feels comfortable in my and babies progress that if he was to 'arrive' in the next week or so he knew he would do great... YEAH!!!

This was all such blessed news, but the news that followed was the icing on the cake - I got discharged from the hospital to continue my bed rest at home - FABULOUS!!!!

So I called my boys and they came up to get me ... they were all SO EXCITED.  Before being discharged I had to complete one last in hospital NST.  Greyson is going to be such a good big brother, he LOVES(d) to hear his baby brother moving and shaking during the NST -

After a rather long wait for discharge, all the information was complete, room was packed and before I knew it I was at home with my boys.  Oh what a wonderful feeling to be able to snuggle in my own bed with my boys next to me.

LOVE my boys!!

 The next morning was filled with having breakfast together, giggles and grins, watching movies and staying  either in bed or on the couch.  So much better than the hospital bed I had been in for over 9 weeks.

But it all makes it worth while to know that the light at the end of the tunnel is coming close and I will before to long be a mommie to another beautiful baby boy!  I am already so blessed with the two I have to hold and snuggle with now, I am so excited to add another soon to our family.

This journey is not over, but I feel that we have come so far.  I have had a tremendous amount of love and support from my husband, both my boys, and my wonderful Mom and Dad - without these 5 people I don't think I would of been able to be so strong, and positive.  They are a true blessing to me and I thank God for their love and grace during this time of need. 

Now the next journey, waiting for my Grant, starts, but this time it is in the comfort of my own home with my boys next to me everyday!

Thank you all for your continued prayers and support during this Baby Waiting Period :o)

Until next time, squeeze your MoNkEyS tight-
