Yesterday I had to go to the doctor's appointment by myself. I didn't like the idea because I feared the worse. My husband wasn't able to attend due to a work situation he could not get out of, especially since he is taking the rest of the week off for when I get the stitch in.

Yesterday wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. We arrived at the surgery center (outpatient procedures only) an hour and a half before the surgery was scheduled.
My first appointment since getting the stitch went really fast. The doctor said that stitches looked good and the cervix was firm. I told him how uncomfortable I have been feeling with the stitch after being on my feet for more than 20 minutes.
I want off this roller coaster ride! It seems like my husband and I have been running into more frustration with each other. But at least he has opened up (rather loudly and full of rage) about what has been bothering him lately.
Over the last two days, I have been feeling something odd. I saw my doctor today so I talked to him about this new feeling because it reminds me of the feeling I had when Gabe was delivered.
I think I have been getting used to the roller coaster ride. But I also feel things settling down on the home front some. My in-laws have been wonderful to help me out and my husband has seemed in a way better mood.
Things are going fair here. I still have some moments of discomfort but I am getting Physical Therapy and I think it will help me in the long run.
I think it helped me to post some of my concerns on the bulletin boards and hear from other women who have gone through a c-section. While the thought of surgery doesn't necessarily scare me, I do not like surgery nonetheless.
Wow! I am 25 weeks pregnant today! Never, ever could I imagine myself getting this far into pregnancy. This is such a wonderful feeling.
This has been a busy week. My mother-in-law and father-in-law headed for the open road to take a vacation and visit one of their five sons. While they are away, they asked me to drive their youngest two children to and from school.
