Yesterday late afternoon Kiara and I had the follow-up appointment at the hospital - she had the second steroid shot for baby's lungs and an ultrasound. Baby still looks great, but unfortunately her amniotic fluid levels, which were already a little too low, had gone down further. They decided to admit Kiara right away for more monitoring and tests. She is still contracting regularly, but they are hoping to get that under control with the new medication. We'll keep you posted when we know more - thanks for the prayers.
Update (Wed. afternoon): The ultrasound looked good this morning -- fluid levels are up a little, baby's heartbeat and activity levels are good, and umbilical cord and placenta seem to be doing their job still. We're waiting for a consult with the neonatologist and a tour of the NICU, just in case. And praying these contractions settle down. Kiara has internet now, so she will be able to update the blog whenever we have more news. Thank you for your prayers!
