Update/8 Weeks Today

Yesterday we had our 8 week ultrasound and everything looks great! Baby has a strong heartbeat and is about the size of a kidney bean. My cervix is measuring about 3 cm and my cerclage appears to be high and tight which is good news. I'm off work today and hopefully will catch up on some z's. Will post more later.

Little Surprises

Yes we are pregnant again! 7 weeks today. Next week we have our first ultra sound to check viability. I previously met with Dr. Hays to discuss our plan for the pregnancy. Nothing out of the norm just yet. Will start progesterone shots beginning week 16 to help with preterm labor and my TAC should do the rest. Dr Hays confirmed the due date is Jan 5 but because of my condition the baby will be delivered by c-section with an estimated date of December 29. Let's hope for a uneventful pregnancy. Hold on tight...December here we come!

Happy Mother's Day

To all beautiful mommies and their little angels. This poem was shared by my Abbylooper sister. xoxo

What Makes A Mother

I thought of you and closed my eyes
And prayed to God today,
I asked, "What makes a Mother?"
And I know I heard him say:
A Mother has a baby,
This we know is true
But, God, can you be a mother
When your baby's not with you?

Yes, you can, he replied
With confidence in his voice,
I give many women babies,
When they leave it is not their choice.
Some I send for a lifetime,
And others for the day,
And some I send to feel your womb,
But there's no need to stay.
I just don't understand this God,
I want my baby here.
He took a breath,
and cleared his throat,
And then I saw a tear.
I wish I could show you,
What your child is doing Here...

If you could see your child smile
With other children and say,
"We go to earth to learn our lessons
of love and life and fear,
but My mommy loved me so much
I got to come straight here!"
I feel so lucky to have a Mom who had so much love for me,
I learned my lessons very quickly,

My Mommy set me free.
I miss my Mommy oh so much
But I visit her each day.
When she goes to sleep,
On her pillow is where I lay.
I stroke her hair and kiss her cheek,
And whisper in her ear,
"Mommy, Please don't be sad today,
I'm your baby and I am here"

So you see my dear sweet one,
Your children are okay.
Your babies are here in My home,
And this is where they'll stay.
They'll wait for you with Me,
Until your lessons there are through,
And on the day that you come home,
they'll be at the gates waiting for you

So now you see
What makes a Mother,
It's the feeling in your heart,
It's the love you had so much of
Right from the very start.
