It's a boy!
« on: June 04, 2012 at 08:16 PM »
Henry is here!  I had my rescue cerclage removed at 37 +2 and we had a sweet baby boy born at 38 weeks on the dot :D
He weighed 7lbs 7oz and 21 inches long.  He is perfect!
First pregnancy
Bed rest at 21 weeks due to incompetent cervix. Healthy boy at 38 weeks!

Second pregnancy
Cerclage at 14 weeks, no bed rest, healthy baby girl at 38 weeks/6 days

Third pregnancy
Cerclage scheduled for 11/11/15

Such wonderful news!!! Great to see once again that a cerclage and bedrest did the trick!

You said something so inspirational a few weeks back I wanted to post it again:

"I believe in bed rest!  I also believe that God only chooses women who He knows are strong enough to endure this for our babies.   Looking back, these past 15 weeks have been a roller coaster of emotions, but I can say now that it feels like it went fast for me.    Bed rest is only temporary, we are giving our babies a lifetime in return!"

A big welcome to baby Henry!!!  ;D
