13 weeks 3 days

Hello Second Trimester. I have 12 more weeks till I enter the unknown. I had an appointment yesterday and I am happy to say that everything looks GREAT. I feel cautiously optimistic about our path right now. I know that things can change in an instant so I try to not get to excited... YET!

I feel super lucky to get to have a peek at every appointment. My doc does his own so there is no waiting for a tech to give report. Just me and the doctor. So far my cervix is double the length it should be and not even CLOSE to where it is a concern for anyone. The baby is 2 days ahead, which we know can change at any given time.

My morning sickness was all day sickness for a while. We are slowly going down to a few days a week. Note to self: it is NOT a good idea to eat corn dogs even if they look and smell delicious. Afternoons I struggle with fatigue and could pretty much sleep all day if I was allowed. Weight gain is 1 pound. ( last appointment I lost 5 so no big worry yet)

Next appointment is a perinatology appointment on the 15th with a fetal echo, kidney scan and all points in between and we are hoping to find out what we are having. OB appointment is the following day so we can start progesterone shots right at 16 weeks ( and some days!)

I just want to add how thankful I am that this little one has stuck around. My heart breaks for those who are still left with empty arms. I hope they know that we are praying for them to have success and their hearts filled with peace. I am so grateful for all of the things that we get to do right now. Also, I am very thankful for the scans. What a great peace of mind.

I hope things continue to go well in the pregnancy. It sounds like you're getting top-notch care and that should make A LOT of difference! Grow baby, grow!
