Bed Rest

Yup, That is where I'm at.
Back in 2004, I had precancerous cells on my cervix so I had a LEEP procedure to remove the cells. This procedure shortened my cervix. The growing baby is now putting pressure on my shortened cervix which was causing me to spot a little bit. I went in for an ultrasound to check on the baby and me and the baby is wonderful. 157 heart rate... bouncing around like mad... so cute! We think it has my nose... It turns up a bit... Ill post the photo. Anywho... she then measured my cervix during the ultrasound and it was indeed short. So that is what caused the spotting. So for now, I am on bed rest. I go back Friday for another exam to check on my cervix. I have not spotted since being on bed rest, which is great news. I will go in Friday and she will check my cervix and see if I need to have a cerclage. If I do, they will basically stitch my cervix so it stays closed.
We caught it early enough that hopefully, a second trimester miscarriage will NOT be an issue. If you could please pray for healing of my cervix... for strength of my cervix...and for a healthy, non complicated rest of the my pregnancy. Thank you!

So, that is what is going on. I'm doing good. It was so reassuring to see our lil one bouncing around and we got to hear the heartbeat which was so amazing!
Here is our LIL BIT at 13 weeks 4 days...look at that lil nose!! It's just soooo cute! Lil bit was SO active! I had just eaten so Lil bit was quite happy!

So that is the latest photo of Lil Bit! What a cutie huh? I can't wait to see Lil bit!

Other than all of this stuff, nothing much is going on. We are still getting the old house prepared to put on the market... well Im not anymore, but Josh is working on it. We actually got a phone call from a woman who is friends w/our neighbor across the street at the old house and she wants to come look at the house in Sunday! It would be awesome if we didn't even have to mess w/putting it up! We could save some money too in Realtor fees and all that!
Our new house is still a work in progress. My scrap table has a huge pile of stuff on it that needs to cleared off and put away... but that will wait. Im so ready to scrap these ultrasound photos... copies of them of course... not the actual photos!

Well, I just wanted to update... and ask for some prayers...

    Keeping you and Josh and baby in our thoughts.

  10. The same thing happened to my sister and my little nephew will be 6 next week. :) She had that same surgery for the pre-cancerous cells and she ended up having to have a cerclage also. She was on bed rest for just a little while and then she was fine. I will definitely be praying for you. :)
