24 Week Check Up

Yesterday we had out 24 week check up with both of our doctors! As you might remember, making it to 24 weeks was our first goal and WE MADE IT! Thank you so much for all the prayers and well wishes!

Dayton is growing perfectly! He now weights 1 pound 5 ounces and his little heart rate is 147. For now, we are holding off on steroid injections and will re-evaluate at 28 weeks. Things looked so good yesterday that they didn't feel like the steroid boost would do any good with labor not being eminent. Overall, he is doing wonderful and seems to be happy, healthy and super active!

Statistically speaking, we are still facing a high chance of pre-term labor (both doctors said probably around the 34 weeks mark). Of course, we are hoping for the best and there is still a chance I go go full term, but our plan is to be prepared in case Dayton wants to make his appearance early. Lots to do! 34 weeks is just over 9 weeks away! EEK!
