Update #4 on Baby Allen #2

It is with the happiest of heart I share that over the past two days, we've done ultrasounds, digital exams, had blood work done, been hooked up to contraction monitors and every other imaginable test and it looks like, at least this far along, the cervical pessary cerclage is working to stabilize my cervix! Never in a million years would I have imagined that phrase to come out of my mouth - but I couldn't be more elated.

While we are not out of the woods by any means, we do have growing faith and confidence that we chose the right measure after such difficult deliberation. Today I am 17 weeks and 5 days and our baby girl seems to be doing great and we have had no further funneling, still at 1.48 cms and closed! 

The most special moment was we snuck little Grace into the ultrasound room and she had an opportunity to see her little sister for the very first time! I wasn't able to capture the moment, but Grant was holding her to the TV screen and she was pointing with delight. There is no better memory to define "bliss."

According to this pregnancy tracker, we have 158 days to make it to full term, and at least another 64 days to promising viability (28 weeks) so the count is on!! Feeling blessed to have made it this extra week and a half, just a few more to go!


Thank you again for your continued prayers, we wouldn't have made it this far without you!
