14 weeks (and 3 days)

I feel like I'm finally back among the living. I had my cerclage (I'll let WebMD explain that one) done as a precautionary measure this past Friday. I didn't feel well for several days and after a trip back to the doctor yesterday we figured out what was going on. It was actually nothing related to the cerclage, which went perfectly. After taking some over the counter meds I woke up today feeling like myself again. I had a sonogram yesterday and was able to see all four heartbeats and the babies moving all around. My doctor says peace of mind is worth its weight in gold. He is so right and I'm so thankful to have a doctor who is so accommodating to my every need.

Other than all of that, things have been going really well. I feel so much more at ease knowing that the cerclage is in place and will, Lord willing, keep the babies nice and cozy until around 32 weeks (I'm still really hoping for 33 weeks which is my mom's birthday). Everyday I am reminded of how little control I have over my pregnancy. And, so, I ultimately am choosing to trust that they will come in God's perfect timing.

We have our weekly appointment tomorrow and are so excited to see who will be joining our family. We are having a little "gender reveal" get together so it will probably be tomorrow night before I post the news on the blog. Here's to hoping the babies cooperate!
