a little update and a ton of photos.




Well, I had my appointment today and the bedrest and the prayers are working!!!
My cervix didn’t change so I can stay on home bedrest for another week until they check again next Friday!! Basically, it is at a 2.5 so if it drops even to 2.4 they will admit me for hospital bedrest (which we don’t want)… so just taking it week by week at this point!
I feel so encouraged today though;  thank you for the prayers!

Sweet Apple is weighing in at 3.5 pounds and a week and a half ahead of schedule which is GREAT news for us!

Happy weekend Everyone! xoxo

    Hang in there sweetheart! I adore your blog, but never get around to leaving comments. Maybe I missed a post, but the measurements you were giving for your cervix… are you having cerival imcompetency? if so… I had it as well, and managed to carry a 9.4 oz baby to 39 weeks. You can do it!!! Just listen to your docs and relax as much as you can! hard to do with little ones underfoot! I will send prayers your way!

    Sweet Casey,
    I'm sure you will be with a pretty lovely blue eyes girl in your arms when God thinks is time for her to come to meet her pretty mama and lovely family. It might be easy or it might be not THAT easy, but either way you will see your pretty girl's face and everything will be worth it. I'm praying for you, aaaaaall the way from London, sending you good vibrations and warm thoughts for this baby girl to come healthy and pretty (but pretty we already know she will be 🙂 )
    Love, your reader and virtual friend,
