Jordan is doing great. They took his feeding tube out, as long as he eats all 55ml at eat feeding, he won't have to get it put back in. He still has his oxygen, we arent sure how long he will need that in or if he will go home on it. They did a swallow test yesterday and he failed with normal formula, so we are adding Simply Thick to his formula for atleast 2-3 months. We are taking him home this weekend. :D

Jordan is 9 days old today. His surgery was on Monday. He did well. They took his breathing tube out yesterday, he should be going from intensive care to progressive care tomorrow. He still has a feeding tube, hopefully he will be eating on his own very soon. I can't wait until he gets to come home, I miss my baby boy. <3

Today is my last day being pregnant, I am scheduled for a c-section tomorrow morning at 9:15am. I will be 39 weeks. Im hoping I recover fast like I did with Kaylee, so I only have to stay in the hospital for 2 days instead of 3 or 4. Kaylee will be staying with my mom for however long I am in the hospital. Can't wait to meet our baby boy! <3

Jordan failed his NST as usual, but passed his bio physical profile. They didn't check for any dialation, but I doubt Im dialated any. If he isn't here by 39 weeks they will induce due to my diabates. He said I have about a 50/50 chance or less of having a successful VBAC, because he will probably be bigger than my daughter and I only dialated to a 3 with her. Either way, my baby boy will be here within 12 days. (:

Alot has happened. We had the fetal echo last week. Jordan still has the hole in his heart, but they also found he has a coarctation of the aorta, or a narrowing, and he will need surgery a few days after birth to fix it. He will have to be flown to Denver to get the surgery, which is an hour and a half drive from us, and we don't even have plates on our car yet. It makes me sad that I won't be able to stay there with him while he is there but hopefully he won't be there for too long. I had another growth ultrasound today, they said he is 4 pounds 11 ounces and in the 16th percentile. He is gonna be a small baby. He failed is NST (non stress test) so I have to go back tomorrow to redo it. Hopefully he will cooperate tomorrow.

I had my first NST (non-stress test) today. Jordan did good and moved alot. He is still head down. I gained another 5 pounds, putting me at 38 total so far. I signed my papers for VBAC. The DR. said if he isnt here by 39 weeks, they will induce me, possibly earlier if my blood sugars don't go down. I have 2 appointments a week from now until he is born. :/ 10 more before June. The next ultrasound to check his heart is May 2nd, Im hoping the hole is gone or atleast smaller.
