We have made it to 27 weeks! Baby is doing great right now. We had an ultrasound yesterday and she's weighing about 2 lbs right now. Hopefully I'll be able to keep her in for the next 7 weeks, which is the longest they will let me go. Because of the low fluid I do not feel her move very much. Maybe only 2 to 3 times a day. But the doctors say that this is normal. They just keep checking on the monitors that everything is fine.

Well I've made it 2 days and no changes. I have had a course of magnesium to help with brain development. 2 shots of steroids to improve the lungs. And have 5 more days of antibiotics to ward off infection. I don't feel her move very much but the doctors said once the steroids go through my system she should become more active. I guess it makes them very sleepy. Our goal is just to take it day by day, week by week.

Sorry for the crappy i.phone update. As of yesterday my water broke. I am now in the hospital till the baby comes. I am 26 weeks right now and the longest they will let me go if she stays in is 34 weeks. So best case scenario is she will stay in and I'll be in tue hospital for 8 weeks. No matter when she comes she will have to go to the NI.CU. The longer she stays put the shorter her stay will be in there. Me and Teressa are keeping very positive outlooks. The hardest part of all this is not being with our Aydan. She is staying at grandma and grandpa's house and last night did really good. We will not get to see her every day because the hospital is so far from home. Without traffic it is an 1:30 hr drive and with traffic can take 3 hrs one way. I will update more later.
