Family Pictures

We took family pictures yesterday with my family, since Derek will be gone for 2 years. I can't believe he leaves in 2 days!

31 weeks

I made it to 31 weeks. I only have about 5 or 6 weeks left. It's a good thing because bedrest is extremely boring! But hopefully I get a healthy baby.

I feel extremely huge and look like it too!

All it takes is a little faith!

I got released from the hospital today. I was so excited. The doctor came in before the ultrasound and talked to me. I asked her if my cervix could get thicker at all. She said it could but probably only half a centimeter. When I went into the hospital my cervix was 1.7 cm. Today it was 3.4 cm. That means it grew almost 2 cm. She was amazed. And so was I. Yesterday I kept telling Jory that I was hoping for a miracle, that some how my cervix would get to 3 cm. Well I got my miracle! It may not seem like a big thing to other people, but it is to me. That's what's keeping my baby inside. And I want her to keep on growing for as long as she can. My mom took me home to Thatcher, so I'll be here until I have the baby. I'm still on bedrest, so I would love visitors!

30 weeks

Things have been a lot better since I got the trebutaline shot. I haven't had any contractions since then. Which is really good. I got 2 steroid shots to help develop the baby's lungs. I get another ultrasound on Monday to check my cervix. I hoping that it will have gotten a lot thicker, so I could go home and possibly go to Thatcher for Thanksgiving and see Derek before he leaves on his mission. But that would definitely be a miracle! I'm extremely bored, so if you live close by you can come visit me!

Hospital Bedrest

Well I'm in the hospital on bedrest now. I called the doctor this morning because I was afraid my cerclage was ripping. So they had me come in and my cervix had gotten shorter. If it gets under 2 cm they put you in the hospital and my did. I've also been having a lot of contractions and the medicine they gave me wasn't stopping them. So I got a shot of terbutaline, which helped. I just hate it because it makes me shake and my heart beat really fast. I'm glad something is helping though. It's scary because I've been through this before, but I'm a lot more confident because I know my baby can live. Hopefully I can at least make it a few more weeks. And hopefully these stupid contractions stop!

Well I'm on bedrest now. My cervix got a lot shorter in the last 2 weeks. I've been on bedrest one whole day and I already hate it. At least I'm at home. I started having contractions last night, so I'll be getting some medicine tonight. It's really scary living 2 hours away from my doctors and a hospital. But hopefully everything turns out okay. I really don't want a premature baby. The goal is to make it to 35 weeks. I hope I can do it!
