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.

Jordan is measuring 28-29 weeks, 22nd percentile. He weighs about 2 pounds 13 ounces. I think he is gonna be a small baby. He is head down, he had his feet on his head so he couldnt get good pics. My blood pressure was a little high, 118/90 and I had trace protein in my urine so I have to do a 24 hour urine collection.

Thought I should update since I haven't in a few weeks. I am 29 weeks 4 days today. Jordan is still doing great, as active as ever. He gets hiccups alot. I think he is still transverse/breech because the kicks are mostly still low. I have another ultrasound on April 12th I think. And around 34 weeks I will have one to check on his heart again. I've gained 31 pounds total so far. Everyone keeps saying they think he is going to be a big baby, but I think he will be smaller (less than 7 1/2 pounds). He could be here within 7 weeks 3 days-10 weeks 3 days, which really isnt that long. Not much else to update on.

I had a fetal echo ultrasound on Wednesday. The specialist said Jordan has a 2mm hole in his heart. He said 2mm is small-medium, so it should close on its own before or shortly after birth, so he shouldn't need surgery to fix it. Other than that he is doing great. He kicks and moves all the time now, he is still breech but has alot of time to turn still. (: I am 26 weeks 3 days today and have gained a total of 31 pounds so far. :/

I had another prenatal appointment today. Only gained .4 pound from last time 2 weeks ago, that makes 24 total so far. Seems like alot compared to Kaylee. I had gained like 10 with her at this point. I just hope he isnt too big. His heartbeat was 143 today, I think he was sleeping. The doctor adjusted my night time insulin a bit. I have another appointment in a week to see if my blood sugars are doing better then. Its hard to believe he will be here in 13-16 weeks. Going by so fast now!

I went to the hospital Tuesday night because I was sick all day and couldn't keep anything down. They took me to L&D and gave me IV fluids because I was dehydrated and having contractions. I was there for about 3 hours, the contractions stopped and I stopped puking after they gave me some zofran so they sent me home. Not much else going on. My next appointment is on the 1st of March. And the ultrasound to check his heart is March 14th.

We had an ultrasound/echo today, so they could get a better look at his heart. They are sending us to a specialist in 4 weeks so they can get a better look at his heart because the DR. said she thinks it looks like he has a hole in his heart. He was moving ALOT during the ultrasound, so Im hoping they just didnt get a good enough look at the heart. He was measuring perfect and now weighs 1 pound 2 ounces. (: I've gained 23 pounds so far. :/ I hope I dont gain more than 40 total.

My next appointment isnt until February 16th, it's a growth ultrasound and they are checking his heart also since they couldnt see it well at the anatomy scan. He kicks alot, mainly in the morning. My back has been hurting alot lately, I think he pushes against it. We're going baby shopping this weekend, Im excited. (:

I am 19 weeks today. Jordan's heartbeat was 160 today. I don't have another appointment until February 16th, which is an ultrasound to check his growth. I felt him kick from the outside the first time last night! (: It was exciting. He kicks ALOT more than Kaylee did, hopefully he isnt a hyper baby.

I had my 18 week anatomy scan yesterday. They said Jordan looks good. (: They couldnt get a good look at the heart so I have another ultrasound at 22 weeks so he will be bigger and they can get a better look. He's getting pretty big. She said he is 9 ounces and his heart beat was 184bpm. I got alot of pictures yesterday, and she confirmed he is a boy. Now I really want to go baby shopping! Im going to pick a really cute outfit for him to go home in, probably a shirt with shorts, sock, and mittens.

We decided to change the first name and the spelling of the second name. I was starting to not like the first name. I really love the name Jordan Cade, so we won't be changing it anymore. Now I just need an embroidery set and a diaper bag so I can put his name on it. (: I am 17 weeks 1 day today. Last night I felt Jordan kicking for the first time! I felt it about 5 times in 30 minutes. They were really tiny kicks but I felt them! Ive been feeling a few this morning as well. I love feeling baby kick, its exciting!

I have an EKG appointment today. They just want to check my heart since I have diabetes I guess. I also have to make an eye appointment. Declan is doing good, still haven't felt him kick yet, hopefully soon though! Theyve been giving me appointments every 2 weeks instead of weekly, since my blood sugars have been good and they havent had to adjust my insulin. Hopefully it stays like that until atleast 30 weeks along. I have my anatomy scan/ultrasound on the 17th, Ill be 18 weeks.
