Monday Roll Call for August 21, 2017
« on: August 21, 2017 at 11:53 AM »
Hello, you wonderful mamas! I'm looking forward to hearing everyone's updates!

Were any of you able to get eclipse goggles for today if you are in one of the states where it will be visible? Do any of you live near the path of totality?  The longest duration of totality will be near Carbondale, IL, where the sun will be completely covered for two minutes and 40 seconds. Some places, like Kansas City, KS— which is at the edge of totality — will only witness totality for about 20 seconds.

Speaking of things that are round... Does anyone want to post belly pix on our Facebook page? http://www.facebook.com/KeepEmCookin I thought that might be fun!

Keep 'em cookin'!

Happy Monday Angela. I'm in Reno,Nv we get 80% today but I'm comfortably watching the eclipse on the news will Bill NYe "the science guy" from my bed.

I am 34 weeks today!!!! Emergent rescue cerclage placed at 21 weeks with bulging membranes and dilation. Doctor still can't believe I made it past 26 weeks due to my case. Feel so blessed for everyday she stays in. I had to go from strict bedrest to modified bed rest as of 31 weeks because I don't have my mother in law with me 24/7 but here I am still holding on. I will have an update tomorrow as I see specialist, we will have to see if  the extra movement has caused any additional funneling or shortening. Fingers crossed. Keep em cookin girls!!!

Good morning ladies!

Congrats Jessica!  I wondered how you were doing, after your MIL had to leave.  Congratulations on keeping baby cooking!  I was on MBR last pregnancy and nifedipine for contractions.  I was floored when I had to be induced at the end of my pregnancy, I could have sworn that she'd come as soon as I got busier or I got off the meds!  Fingers crossed for your appt today!

Thank you Jensine!! I'm definitely doing more and having to move around more but also listening to my body and laying down when I need to. Stories like yours makes me feel like I can make it to scheduled csection at 39 weeks:).

I went to specialist today and Baby looks great and is weighing in at 5 lbs 15 oz and still measuring a week ahead. She doesn't want to check my cervix anymore to not irritate it. She wants me to keep doing what I'm doing so that I can hopefully make it to 9-16 where I am scheduled to get the cerclage removed, I would be 37 weeks and 5 days on that date, then she's hoping I will make it to my 39 week csection. Hopefully my body will keep her in until at least cerclage removal.

Hi Ladies! I'm 33 weeks today! Can't believe I've come this far.  I was finally released from the hospital  on Aug 9th after 6 1/2 weeks.   I am scheduled to have the cerclage removed on Sept 13th when I will be 36 +1.  Prayers I make it to that date!!

Hi ladies, my baby girl is born healthy and term this morning at 9 after 15 weeks of hospital bedrest. She weights 3.1kg at 38 weeks + 2 days.

Wish all of you good luck.
