I had big plans for 2013! I have a huge to do list and so many unfinished projects just waiting to be done. I am learning, however that sometimes life just gets in the way. I am sure you guys have noticed that I haven't been posting as much as I would like. The past few months have been a bit rough and I am finally going to explain why. I have shared before how we would love to have more children and how heartbreaking that process has been. In February I found out I was once again expecting. I was nervous and so scared considering what my last experience was like (I shared that here). For the first 14 or so weeks I was quite sick. I am not sure if it was the progesterone injections or just general morning sickness but it was hard to get out of bed because I was so dizzy and nauseous. I was also told to take it easy because they were concerned about my cervix. I am high risk and was sent to high risk perinatologists 4 1/2 hours away for check ups every 2 weeks. That has led me to be out of town a lot. Last week during an ultrasound they found that my cervix was indeed thinning and funneling quite a bit and we discussed my past history and options with my drs. We decided that doing a cerclage (stitching my cervix shut) was the best option to keep our baby.
I went in for surgery on thursday and am now on bedrest. I feel at peace with the decision and am hopeful we will be successful in keeping this baby to term. I am also hopeful that I won't have to be on complete bedrest the rest of my pregnancy...time will tell. So long story short...I am disappointed while looking around at all my blog plans and fun projects yet to be completed that I know will continue to be on the back burner. Yet I know that my first priority is my little baby. I plan to keep blogging...but I doubt I will be around much. I know that I need to rest, take it easy, and focus on what matters most. I just wanted to give you all a heads up and let you know why I have been so absent. I hope you'll continue to join me for Crafty Tuesdays and I hope that I will still have fun posts here and there to share. :) Oh and if you were curious I am 19 weeks so I still have a ways to go.
