25 weeks!

We just got back from our weekly ultrasound and everything is looking very good! They did Cooper's measurements and he's a week ahead in growth and weighing in at 1 lb. 13 oz!!! Almost 2 pounds :) The fluid looks great meaning that nothing is leaking out of my uterine rupture scar. The plan continues to do the c-section and hysterectomy at 34 weeks. We'll also do another round of steriods at 32 weeks in preparation for d-day.

I went to a c-section class last night since I was knocked out during my c-section with Lily and learned some good information about what to expect before and during the surgery. I know about the after part expect the having to take care of a newborn while recuperating! I found myself allowing myself to get excited about the day that we will meet our little man.

We've officially been here a week and honestly this week has flown by! I can only hope that time continues to move quickly and that our little family can proceed on with our lives at home...

9 more weeks to go!!!!! I'll have my hubby scan the u/s pics from today sometime this weekend so that I can post new pics of Coop and I'll do my 25 week pic this weekend, too :)


  1. Jen, such great news. Glad to hear all is well. :) Sounds like a healthy baby boy. :)

  2. I'm shaking my head in amazement that you're at 25 weeks. What an incredible milestone! And pat yourself on the back for surviving a week of the hospital :)

  3. I came over from All The Little Ponies. The name of your blog got my attention. I have been following baby loss mothers. I have a blog called For Your Tears where I send handkerchiefs out to women. Anyway, I just love when the Rainbow babies come. I pray for you and your son. I look forward to meeting him. Take care & God Bless.

  4. you should be excited! you've convinced me that serving bedrest in the hospital is the way to go. i'm glad the time is flying by. may it continue to do so.

  5. Wonderful! I am so happy to hear you are not pumped with steroids. God is great. :) Hugs to you! :)
