Ben was very nearly here yesterday. Gill went to the hospital for monitoring and they weren't too happy with the results of the first 2 sessions and decided that they would cut him out and send him to special care. However, they put her on a monitor in the delivery ward and got a much better trace so they decided not to. Gill went to her scheduled appointment with the consultant today and he said that Ben showed signs of stress yesterday. They will keep an eye on him but may deliver him possibly next week. They will try and keep him in Gill as long as possible as his lungs haven't quite completed developement but they are still confident that there shouldn't be too much of a problem if they have to release him a little earlier than planned. This parenting thing is certainly very nerve wracking. Poor Ben. Daddy's going to be a nervous wreck!
