Jaylie – Week 26 6/7

After a week in the hospital, Jaylie's blood flow through her umbilical cord has started to show slight sign's of reversal (which is not good). The Dr's are monitoring Kristina and Jaylie intensively now. There has been chatter from the nurses that Jaylie may be delivered vi c-section this weekend.

This week has been a trying week. There were a couple scares due to Jaylie's heart rate dropping suddenly (down to the 80 range) and then jumping back up again (155 range) and then running high (+160 range). On Tuesday, the nursers ran in, stuck an IV in Kristina's arm and put her on oxygen all the while talking about getting an OR room ready for an emergency c-section. As you can imagine, this was a very scary moment. From that point until now, the excitement has died down one notch from "c-section in 10 minutes" to "prepare yourself for a c-section at any moment".

Kristina is in good spirits though stressed and tired.

As I write this, it looks as though we will NOT have a Friday the 13th baby, which I am thankful for :). Only 1hr and 40mins to go before we are officially 27 weeks and out of Friday the 13th :).

That's all for now.

Nathan, Kristina & Jaylie
