Accomplished
« on: June 02, 2012 at 02:50 PM »
Today I hit the 37 week mark =) WOW!

My first two were born at 34 and 35 weeks and here I sit wondering what in the heck I am still doing pregnant. I went to see my OB (who I would recommend to the world) and she walks in and was like "How in the world are you still pregnant???" I told her I had been wondering the same thing. This pregnancy has been by far the worst with the short cervix and starting to dilate at 23 weeks. I have been dilated to 5 for over 7 weeks and when my OB check me on Thursday I was dilated to 6! I am about 15 minutes away from the hospital so I thought it was a little risky sending me home as I would have to pack up my two kids which would make for about a 25-30 minute trip to the hospital, not including time it would take to drop them off at my mother in law's. Anyway... I'm just having a great day and feel amazing... 7 weeks in the hospital, so much stress, and now I am okay.... it's a huge weight off of my shoulders! I have been out of the hospital for 3 weeks and basically off of bedrest for 2 weeks and have only went into the hospital once for contractions and that was the day my husband's grandpa passed! I have a great feeling of accomplishment even though I have been feeling like I have been doing absolutely NOTHING since February! Thanks for all of the support and listening to any rants I might have went on and reading my relentless posting over the last several weeks! You women are amazing ;)

Congrats Mommaof3!!! You have done such an amazing job, and I know how hard you have worked and struggled to make it this far.  We were both on hospital bed rest at around the same time and I always read your posts and felt somewhat comforted that there was someone else who was going through the same torture as me - with being so far away from family. I wish you all the best from here on out!!!
