Thanksgiving Countdown: 7 Days

I'm thankful for modern medicine!!

So, my good friend Jeanne is 36 weeks pregnant. Earlier this week she was having some pre-eclampsia signs. So her doctors had her stay in the hospital and today they decided to induce her. Thankfully because if today's medicine Jeanne has gotten steroid shots to help her baby girls lungs be ready early, so at 36 weeks she will likely be just fine! Years ago when this wasn't available, a 36 week old babe wouldn't be able to breathe on her own at 36 weeks because a baby's lungs are the last organ to develop and are still maturing well into the 38th/39th week.

So YAY for modern medicine! It's bringing my Jeanne a sweet baby girl real soon! (she might even be here already!!!) Pin It
