Quick Baby UPDATE!!

Just got back from the peri- Good News first: Caitlyn looks wonderful she is measuring a few days ahead and is already at 3lbs, her HB was 155bpm and she was very active.
Bad News: My cervix is short and gets shorter with pressure..So with my previous history they gave me steriod shot for Caitlyn's lung development and gave me my first of hopefully many 17P injections. They also did the FFN test to see if I will likely deliver in the next 14days, but I won't know results on that until friday. I was pretty much told to sit on my butt and not do much until I get the results back from the FFN test. I see my regular OB next fri and then the peri again the following week. So send your prayers this way that Caitlyn will stay cooking in me for several more weeks.

Here is a pic from my sono at the peri's

Hi Amber,

My name is Kirsten, and I'm a member of the public relations team that raises awareness for FullTerm, The Fetal Fibronectin test. I read your blog with interest and thought you might like to learn more about the test. Check out, and feel free to include the site as a link to your blog so that readers can access the information.

Additionally, if you're interested in helping spread awareness about the benefits of the FullTerm Test, please contact me by emailing My team generates stories about the benefits of the test among women at high risk for delivering early in national, local and online outlets. In the last few months we've secured stories in Working Mother magazine, the FitPregnancy Blog and the Boston Parent's Paper. Most recently we secured the following article on the popular pregnancy and parenting website

We're always interested in speaking with women who had the test and are willing to share their experience to make sure other, at-risk pregnant women know there is a test available to help predict premature birth.

I hope to hear from you.
