It was almost 3 years ago that I delivered Ariana at this gestational age. And here I am at that same gestational age, pg w/ dd #2 and thankfully not on bedrest or in the hospital. No signs of PTL either, although I think that's due to the terbutaline I've been taking. Cerclage seems to be holding up well.
I am so, so thankful to have made it this far. Each additional day that my baby continues to grow inside of me is just gravy. I know that she will be fine after she's born since Ari has had so few problems and is actually quite a smart cookie.
Granted, we are still hoping to make it to 36w so she won't have to spend any time in the NICU. I just hope to make it past Christmas! We're supposed to spend Xmas Eve with my family and Xmas day with the in-laws. Little one can arrive anytime after that!
My MIL called and said I must be enjoying this pg. Truthfully, "enjoy" isn't the word I would use. God knows the first trimester was absolutely awful, and I've done nothing but worry since then. It's not like I have had an easy, carefree pg. We've had a couple of scares and I've really limited my activity, basically putting myself on modified bedrest. I know she meant well, but she will never understand what it's like to have a high-risk pg. I truly am grateful to have made it this far and am praying for at least a couple more weeks.
