2 Mommies and a Baby

every 2 weeks

What I understand of all this is the following:

The cervix is about an inch thick. This is what holds the fluid and the baby in the uterus.

In the time from the last ultrasound a few weeks ago to today, the cervix has been failing and only about less than 1/5 remains. And what is there is too soft to hold.

We will know more on Friday when we go to the hospital for an ultrasound.

We are at 28 weeks. We've been told that every 2 weeks is crucial. The more time our little boy stays in there, the less time he will be in the NICU.

Lois is at her parents' house and will stay there until the hospital visit on Friday. I will stay there with her at least tonight.

The big conversation will happen after Friday (if she is not admitted to the hospital) on whether she wants to stay home or at her parents'.

For now, we are just focusing on her not moving anywhere!

We're sending lots of good thoughts you're way. Too bad you have to wait for the ultrasound until Friday. Hang in there. Please keep us posted. Also, I found out from Stacey and Angele that we have the same donor. So we're sending extra special thoughts your way!!

Yeah keep us posted!!!
Our thoughts are with all three of your.

I'm so sorry to hear that. I hope the cervix can hold out a while longer if she is on strict bedrest. I'm sure Chubby is doing just fine as long as that cervix stays intact. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers and hope that Chubby can get some more growing time in there. {{{hugs}}} Hopefully Friday's u/s will go well.

My thoughts are with you two! Let us know how things go.


11:01 AM  

Stay put, little one! We will send lots of healthy and don't go anywhere thoughts your way.

11:40 AM  

I remember hearing that there are some kind of staples or stitches they can put in to keep the cervix supported. Is that an option at this point?

8:22 PM  

Sending you lots of good energy. I hope that all will be ok. : )

Holly and Lois,
You are both very much in our thoughts, praying that all will be well. So sorry you have this scary crisis to cope with. Please know how much we're all rooting for you.
