Our First BPP

Well, today the sonographer stopped by for our first BPP which stands for Biophysical Profile I think. It measures the babies movements, fluid, and their ability to practice breathing. She told me from the beginning that it is rare to see 24 week old babies practicing breathing. Then, we get a score. So, the girls looked good and scored 6 out of 8 points and the 2 points that they are missing are from the not practicing breathing. So, that is yet another answer to prayer. We did see a shot of the cords which was a bit unnerving but I just have to keep reminding myself that God is in control and His plan will prevail.

Funny, I kind of thought that the first few days would be the hardest being away from home. But so far I have been blessed and been able to see Aubrey, my daughter, and at least someone from my family since I have been in the hospital. My first real test is coming this week - I will not see my daughter until Friday. I have never been away from her for even a night until I was admitted. Hopefully the time will go by quickly!


  1. Hi Leslie,
    I am praying and thinking about you ALL the time. I hope this time goes by quickly for you too! Love the idea of a blog, I guess it gives you something to do too. Well, I will be checking in to see how things are going. Love you - tell Seth and Aubrey I said hello.


  2. Oh, my friend,
    I enjoyed reading your blog. You are an excellent writer and may have a manuscript in process! Who know how God will use you?
