24 weeks

I made it to our first milestone of 24 weeks and things are looking fantastic! The news just keeps getting better and better. :) I had an appointment this week and my cervix was 4.8cm, which is really really great. It's amazing that it is so long and strong at this point, without a cerclage. The baby is still measuring big and is about 1 lb 6 oz. The best news was that there is NO sign of the SCH! It certainly could be hiding but after about 5 minutes of looking and looking, it was nowhere to be found. I am off all restrictions at 28 weeks since things continue to look so great and I am counting down the weeks. I had been getting a lot of Braxton Hicks over the last few weeks and those have decreased a lot. I still get them, but not nearly as many. I can't believe I may get to have a "normal" pregnancy, even if it's only for a few months. I can't wait to actually be able to go and do things and play with Benjamin.

I will say that I need to start watching what I eat. With Benjamin, I gained a total of 27 lbs (not 25 like I had thought) and as of today, I am already up 22 lbs! I seriously can't believe it. I am scared that I'm going to blow up like a balloon, so I better take it easy on the sweets and start eating a little bit better!

  1. Hey Lady!! It's been forever since I've checked on you. You crossed my mind today and I thought I wonder if Jenell is still updating her blog and OH MY GOODNESS you're preggo! Congrats and I'm glad things are going great for you. God Bless you, Ben, and Hubbie. You're in my prayers and I can't wait for the next update.


  2. I found your blogs after my daughter had two losses. I check on you. I hope everything is still going well with this pregnancy.
