Relief

How cool is this shadow coming into my bedroom?

It always amazes me how life can be so good one day and feel so hopeless the next or vice-versa.

I had a really bad week this week. I was anxiously waiting for an ultrasound that we had yesterday and had been experiencing some really bad tightenings/ contractions and a terrible lower back ache.. I was so worried that I was going into labour and it really could not have been at a worse time because at 24 weeks gestation most babies who are born (and survive) are left with terrible brain damage and are usually blind and deaf.

(It's actually amazing how a baby born at 24 weeks has so little chance of survival and by 28 weeks most babies not only survive but grow up without any long term side effects/ health problems.. Every single day matters at this point).

But luckily, our ultrasound yesterday showed a beautiful healthy little boy and a cervix that is still very long and closed.. no sign of any problems at all!

I can't tell you what relief it was to hear them say "long and closed". It's funny how my whole world now revolves around the length of my cervix!

So.. just a few more weeks and we will be over the scary part! And after my ultrasound yesterday, we are feeling very confident that we will get there..

3 more weeks!! Come on!

*This is a photo of a shadow that came into my bedroom yesterday through my square sunlight?! How cool is that!

Hello Katie! Remember me? So happy to hear that you are in good health and the baby is fine. What a journey for you so far. I have started blogging again and will pop in regularly. Take good care, Wynona x

So glad all is okay Katie. I remember hanging out for the 12 week mark and thinking I'd be able to then relax, but for me, I felt MUCH more relaxed after 28 weeks.

Beautiful photo.

Sorry I haven't stopped by much lately, have had limited online time... off to have a catch up now... xx
