Been having waves all day. Intensifed around 4pm. It is now 7pm. I'm on my way down to The Farm to get checked. Probably just some BH (although these are only in my back...which is new and different!). Will try to update as internet and time allows.
Feel free to split evenly along "ELV" and "Still to soon" prayers/wishes/vibes...

Jenne's buddy is Twinklefae- I left it up to each partnered set to get in touch/exchange details- I have no idea if they had a chance yet?

Hello, Feb. ladies --
This is Jenne's BFF smile.gif I'm updating on her behalf !
The waves continued until late in the night before slowing to several minutes apart at irregular intervals. Jenne was able to get some rest after 3am. Upon checking this morning, the midwife had concerns relating to some swelling and blood pressure and wanted Jenne to see the OB at the hospital. Thankfully, everything looks good for both Jenne(bloodwork, blood pressure within range, initial urine ck) and baby girl(biophsyical profile was perfect!and she has hair!). Jenne was released on bed rest to keep blood pressure under control. In addition, she has to complete a 24-hour urine catch to check protein levels. They will remain at the Cabin at the Farm, with the midwife checking blood pressure 4 times per day, until the results of the urine catch are received. If the results look good, Jenne and her DH are currently planning to return home to wait until Miss A (again) appears to be ready to make an appearance. In the meantime, they don't have internet access but I'll update if/when there is more information!

thanks so much for the update. I remember with my last friend who had a Farm birth that there just isn't much contact from out there!

 

Rest up Jenne, doesn't sound like it will be long.
