So much has happened since I last checked in! Lots and lots of great news!
First things first – the major news: surpassing Ethan’s gestation loss and reaching viability. To be honest, I never thought I would see those two milestones. It’s huge. Reaching and surpassing Ethan’s lost was very emotional. Reaching viability was equally emotional. This pregnancy finally feels real. I’m going to be a Mommy! M is going to be a Daddy! We’re going to have our rainbow/take-home baby in a few months!
I had my latest check-up with my MFM and I had more great news: no progesterone shots needed! He based his decision on how the cerclage was holding up. If my cervix was funneling down to it, he would recommend the shots. If it wasn’t, he didn’t think it was necessary. Well, the cerclage did its job! My cervix grew from 3.4 to 4.8! That is flippin’ incredible. I know I’m not out of the woods quite yet and it could shrink and funnel at any time due to how dynamic the cervix is but it’s great news and gives me a lot of much-need hope and faith in this pregnancy. I’m still on modified bed rest and continuing my daily baby aspirin regimen.
Pretty soon, I’m going to start post things I’ve purchased for Yoda and possibly give an unbiased review of them. Some of the things I can’t give a review based on he’s not here yet so I can’t determine if it was a good thing or not. I did recently purchased a lot of organic clothing and I’m still on the fence about cloth diapering, though I am doing my research.
I’m so flippin’ excited!!! Just a little over 100 days to go!!!
