Joy got her second steroid shot this morning. She’s only going to get the two shots for right now and she’s also getting an antibiotic to protect the baby. The nurses are also doing non-stress baby monitoring twice a day starting yesterday. During the first monitoring, the nurse was obviously excited and kept saying “beautiful”. She explained what they look for & said it is happening more often than is typical for a 24 week baby – looking more like a 30 week baby. That is an answer to prayer! We also heard baby having hiccups and could see the monitor belt moving due to the baby kicking & hiccuping. It was the coolest thing! Please continue to pray for us.
Here’s a short video of the baby’s heartbeat.
