How is every one doing? Any big plans for this summer?

DH has been in the middle of donating his kidney to his brother. We should go home from the hospital today.

We are currently on vacation. I have started having lots of pressure/pain in my abdomen/pelvis/vaginal area. Today it got so bad that I could barely stand up. I am hoping that getting home, and out of the high altitudes of the mountains (we live in WI, but are in CO) will help. I am still hoping out hope to not have the preterm contractions, bedrest, meds, hospitalizations, etc. this time that I did with the other 3...

With my youngest I was having a lot of problems but going on vacation really helped. It really brought my blood presure right down.

Sorry been a little MIA again. I was recently put on bed rest for the rest of my pregnancy. I had a cerclage put in a littl over a week ago and hoping and praying that this boy keeps cooking as long as possible.

23 weeks and 2 days. I had the cerclage put in at 21 weeks and 5 days and spent the weekend in the hospital. I was sent home on bed rest.

Yikes! That is a long time to be on bed rest but you can do it. Do you crochet? I was on bed rest when I was pg with my youngest and made a little dress. It helped the time to go by faster.


Sorry I posted so many pictures. I just can't believe how little she was then. She will be three in September.
