staying put for now

It looks like I'm here for the long haul. My doctor was NOT impressed with my cervix. His exact words were, "There's not much left and her head is right there." I'm still not dilated at all which is the good news. He said that he wouldn't be comfortable sending me home with my history of a previous classical c-section.

So, that's that. Pray that I have at least 4 more weeks left and that my cerclage holds tight. He didn't say delivery was imminent, he just didn't want me at home. After being here for 10 weeks already, 5 weeks & 5 days doesn't seem like that much longer to go.

And, please pray for Coy, too. He's still not feeling good. He has a bad cough and is just not himself. I haven't seen him since Sunday and I'm missing him like crazy.

Thanks for all your love & prayers!

Ann Marie - You don't know me but I have followed your blog since Coy was a little tiny guy. :) I am praying for you and Cydney. I am also praying that mr. big man Coy is feeling better! My daughter is 20 months and was born at 38 weeks due to my Type 1 diabetes. I am so thankful that we were able to go to full term and thank God for that everyday. Little Cydney will be just perfect when she makes her way into this world. God saw to it that Coy made it and Cydney will too. Keep the faith and your wonderful positive attitude. :)

Hugs,
Adrianne

I kept checking to see if you had gone home yet....bummer, but it's not that long, huh? And you are at 30 weeks + Hallelujah! I pray that Coy feels better soon - poor little guy.

Wow, the long haul, huh? Hang in there girl! 5 weeks isn't too bad. I know you can do it! I like how your docs are handling things - better be safe than sorry! In just a few weeks you'll be meeting your sweet little, Cydney! That is so exciting!

Ann-Marie - I can say 2 things....I'm sorry you're still there on bedrest but am somewhat relieved that you're still there. I feel better knowing you're monitored then at home and "what-if". As far as my friend that I've referenced b4 making it to 35 weeks, she wasn't released from the hospital until she was 34 weeks. I know she hated being there but her daughter didn't spend 1 day in the NICU like her previous (she has 3 kids).

My Crazy LIfe....BUT love it! said...

I am praying for you that you make it as long as possible. I have only been following your blog for a few weeks now, but you are in my thoughts daily. I had three girls all born at 36 weeks...that was our goal to get that far. My littlest one was almost born at 28 weeks due to severe IUGR...but she was hardheaded and lasted 8 more weeks than they thought. I can't imagine the stress you are under right now. I will be praying for you.

Sending lots of love and prayers to you and Coy!! Jenna has an appt at TCH the begining of July, maybe we will come visit if you are up for it.

That news must come with mixed feelings. Part of you must be horribly dissappointed, while, at the same time, knowing it is what is best right now.

And you know, my offer still stands to bring you anything you need (books, movies, some non-hospital food). We are pretty much next door at least once a week, and I would be happy to drop off anything you need.

I am another blog follower, since Coy was just born. Praying for you all!
