Pregnancy updates....

Ive been meaning to post these for a while and just haven't but this last few weeks have put a new spin on craziness. On ethics day I woke up with a strong pain in my side. With Eli I called with every ache and pain but with this one I realized its just part of the gig. However this pain just wasn't going away. It started around 4am and by 11am it hadn't eased up so I gave in and called the doctor. Because it was constant they wanted me to come in. After an ultrasound I found out my cervix had started to shorten and I was put on medicine and strict bedrest. I've been having cramps a lot this pregnancy and after being told at almost every appointment that it was "normal" despite not having them with my first; they now say they are contractions. I've had follow up appointments each week to make sure I'm not dilating and these contractions don't turn into pre-term labor. Well God is good and since then my cervix looks better and I'm only on moderate bedrest. Now these meds I'm on to stop contractions aren't fun but ill do what I gotta do to keep this little boy cooking.
Needless to say our little beach getaway got cancelled which lets be honest, it sucked! But in perspective, yeah we missed out on our trip and lost our deposit but we are hoping to have a healthy baby and when he arrives it will totally and completely be worth it!
This pregnancy has been a tough one but I'm so thankful for it. With Eli I thought it very well could be my last pregnancy because you never know what God has in store and I feel the same this time (especially with all the complications) so I'm trying to enjoy the great things about pregnancy like watching this baby roll back and forth in my belly. He's such a wiggle worm and I LOVE it!!!!!
