The cerclage placement was done yesterday morning...And well I'm tired and sore!

We were told to arrive at 6am, but because I HATE to be late we got there at 5:45 and the doors were locked and they wouldn't let us in until 6!!! So we went and sat in the car until 5:59 and walked the three feet back to the door...and they still wouldn't let us in!!! At 6:03 the woman finally opened the doors and told us to have a seat and she would be right with us. Let me just say it was not a first come first serve and I was not a happy camper! But in the end it didn't matter...Dr. K was late and I had to wait! It wouldn't have been a big deal but I was nervous and when I'm nervous I am horrible at waiting!

Dr. K arrived at 7:40 and I was in the operating room at 7:50 and apparently Dr. K was in the waiting room talking to Mr. K at 8:15 letting him know that everything thing went well and that I would be in recovery soon.

The first thing that I remember is three nurses standing over me and commenting on how much SnowPea was moving and how funny they thought it was! And truthfully that made me so happy...all along I was worried that something would happen to SnowPea during the surgery and that was reassuring!

By 9:30 we were on our way home! I really wanted breakfast from a little bakery on the way home from the hospital but by the time we got half way there I was in so much pain all I could do was cry and Mr. K understood from my motioning that I just wanted to go home, so we did. I love the OldMan (My Father in law) but he was not thinking about how bumpy the drive was and I did NOT like it! But we made it home and I went straight to bed! And for the most part I haven't moved!

And I plan on staying this way for at least the next few days and catching up on some reading and the million things on the DVR! Hope everyone has a good weekend!

Specialist Appointment...

This is not what I had thought I would post...

Today we had our first appointment with the Specialist, Dr. K. I have to say I really do like Dr. K and he spent a lot of time with us and he took a lot of time looking at SnowPea (Lola Decided that is what we are calling BabyH for now)! All of which made me very happy. He did some talking about the different things that he was looking at and for, then he checked my cervical length and he stopped talking...which made me worry.

He did a couple of other things all the while not saying a word...more worry.

Then he abruptly said I'm going to do a pelvic exam...more worry that I could almost handle!

Turns out my cervix is very short already! Only measuring 1cm! After he said that I'm not sure if I heard much else. I tried the best I could to pay attention but I just couldn't get past the 1cm! I thought it should be like 3 or 4cm, not 1!!!!!

We have scheduled for the cerclage to be put in next week and until then I am on light duty. No bending, squatting, prolonged standing, exertion of any kind, ect.

The problem is, Mr. K broke his ankle two days before New Years! He had to have surgery the Monday after New Years! He is on crutches! And will be for another 7 ( yes I said 7) weeks! He can't walk or take care of Maggie or do anything around the house! Getting dressed to go anywhere is an ordeal in itself, and going well that is even worse!

So tonight I find myself calling friends and family and cashing in on favors so that we will have all the help we need for the next however long. I'm just not good at asking for help! And I'm not good at being the patient! But I have no choice, I will be the patient and I will be a good one!

I will do what ever I have too for SnowPea to be safe!

On a Happier Note...SnowPea looks really good and is measuring a week ahead! And also moved around when Dr. K poked (really hard) on my belly!!!

I said Good Things Were Coming...

Did you see this yesterday?

As of yesterday, I am 9w5d! (I can't believe I just typed that!) Mr. K and I are completely over the moon, most of the time it does not even seem real! We told our parents on Christmas Eve with a little onezie and a framed ultrasound picture. And to my surprise it went better than I could have ever hoped for! My mom was calling some of her closest friends before Mr.K's Dad even figured out what it meant!

But along with all of the excitement there is also a lot of fear, if I wake up and don't feel sick I start panicking and I worry about every little tingle and pain! Every time I talk to Dr. R he is encouraging and makes sure that I know it is ok and normal for me to be worried. I am beginning to think that this is just part of why I have always liked Dr. R.

And if you are reading this and still struggling after a loss, please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. I know how hard it is to log on every day and see tons of new post about subsequent pregnancies and all the stuff that you want and just wanting to scream and run away...I have been there and I can tell you it is NOT fun at all, but remember I am thinking of you and wanting the best for you!!!

Very Merry Christmas

Although it is incredibly late!
I know...I am so behind it is not even funny! But we had a wonderful 2010, although Mr. K fell and broke his leg(I will tell you more later)! Even more wonderful things are coming in 2011...
