She is looking Great!!! 7/29

Today I am 16w 5d...We had our Level 2 ultrasound, Our little one is doing awesome. All of her parts are growing perfectly, and we are still having a GIRL she currently weighs 6oz. She is an ounce bigger than the average...YEAH!!! I am still on strict bed rest, but my cervix looks awesome and is holding strong. I am going to keep doing what I am doing and we will make it to Christmas!!! Logan wants to write "Don't open til Xmas" on my tummy. He is taking great care of us...Not a lot going on...I get very excited when I get to shower. So that's pretty much my excitement right now.

Logan made me a bed in the Nursery this week so we could start going through all of the baby stuff we have from the triplets. Currently the room is painted chocolate on the bottom with a chair rail and each wall is a different color green, blue, pink, and yellow. The crib is decorated all pink and chocolate. Logan really wanted to paint the room pink, So in the next few weeks it will be pained all pink on the top and chocolate on the bottom...very cute....she is going to be a luck she will turn out to be a "Tom Boy" well not until she can dress

It's Official...It's a GIRL!!!!!

Its a GIRL!!!!! We had a doctors appt yesterday and got to see our little baby...she is so active..she was kickboxing, The u/s tech asked if we wanted to know the sex..We couldn't say yes fast enough...She flipped the wand over to between the babies legs and plain as day...3 lines...Heck I'm not a professional, but I said GIRL as soon as I saw...Logan was so excited he couldn't even stand it. He wanted a girl so is funny how most people think all men want a boy, not Logan he really wanted daddy's little girl. The doctor came in and checked my cervix, it has gotten longer. We were so happy and shocked we almost started to cry. The bed rest is I will continue to rest as much as I can....What a morale boost yesterday was...

Cerclage Surgery is Done 7/8

Today we woke up at 5 am like every other work day. But today we didn't go to work we headed to the hospital for surgery. Since my cervix is incompetent I needed surgery to sew it shut. I arrived at the hospital at 630 am. I was nervous because we had not been to labor and delivery since we delivered the triplets. The smells and the sounds were very familiar. I was a little nervous at first but had many visitors to my room. It felt more like a reunion and less like a medical procedure. It felt nice being welcomed and cared for by the nurses and doctors. Dr. Monti came in and did an ultrasound. It made me feel a little more at ease seeing our little one. I caught Dr. Monti looking between the babies legs. He always wants to be the first to find out the sex. He said it was still early, I asked him what his professional guess is. He said I still think you are having a GIRL. We will find out in a few weeks if he is correct :) I was able to walk into the surgery room, very very different from last time I was here. I never walked anywhere.

I got the spinal block and was placed on the bed. Dr. Monti worked his magic. Unfortunately it didn't go as well as planned. My cervix has already started to shorten. It was a very good thing I came in today for the procedure. He was able to put the stitch in and we are praying it holds. I will be monitored very close and he will place an permanent abdominal cerclage if needed. We will do what ever it takes to keep this baby in until Christmas. I am now on complete bed rest no privileges, but bathroom. So i is going to be a very Long 6 months. I am just glad I have the world greatest husband.
