Now, I may be biased—just a little bit :)--but Lady Hiva is truly amazing. The pregnancy is going really well. We are now into the 14th gestation week and that marks the beginning of the SECOND TRIMESTER! It is so wonderful to have come this far with no complications. Although that makes us hope that later we don’t have larger complications.
All the prayers, thoughts and positive vibes from all ends of the world have helped…and we hope that it continues to help too. We have learned over the past few years that having a large support system is really helpful.
Yesterday Lady had a cerclage put in. There are generally two types of cerclage, a McDonald and a Shirodkar cerclage. Last time Lady had the McDonald and this time they wanted to try the Shirodkar because it is higher and sturdier. (If you want the medical nitty-gritty you can Google them). Needless to say they BOTH sound really painful to me.
Lady Hiva was willing to go through it for the chance to have a baby. I hope this time it works out, she deserves it. I married a REALLY special person (and no, not like ‘I ride the short bus special’)
It was a long day in the hospital, but things were going alright so they let us go. So more waiting…week by week we are getting closer! Here is to a full term baby…or at least close!
