On Tuesday, January 17th, one day shy of 28 weeks pregnant with our second daughter, my water broke. I was admitted to a local hospital with a top notch NICU that evening but wasn’t actually in labor, so I will be staying here either until I have the baby or until my amniotic sac heals itself, which is rare but does happen. It could be days or months here in the hospital; they’ve seen the full spectrum. I’ll be using this page as a central location to keep family and friends up to date on what’s happening with the baby and me, and as a way to remember this segment of our journey of parenthood. We’ve decided to name our girl Hope.
