hey guys!
I figured it may be time for an update, and here lately, I have had a lot of time on my hands so Id better take advantage of it.
In April (four days before what would have been camdyns first birthday) jacob and i found out that we are expecting again. What a blessing!!! I dont know why I was so surprised to see that positive pregnancy test, but I had seen SO many negative ones that I never thought it would happen. We knew that this was going to be difficult with all the fears and worries of anyone that has lost a baby and then became pregnant again, so my Dr. recommended a specialist for us to see. We would travel every three weeks to shreveport to see him and he would measure my cervix. About a month ago, I had an episode of cramping for about three days. I ended up going up to labor and delivery and hooking myself up to the monitor. My dr ordered a cervical length ultrasound and everything seemed fine. Well, I went to my dr in shreveport a few days later and my cervix had changed pretty drastically for such a short period of time. So.. he recommended bedrest and everyone that I work with pretty much agreed and told me that I couldnt come back to work!! (not because they dont love me, but they were very worried). So, for the past month, I have been on bedrest. Jacob has been working in galveston for the past three months and coming home on the weekends. It hasnt been easy. Since I am unable to work now, we moved out and in with my mom. Jacob still has two weeks until he will come back to nacogdoches and be with me. This has been an extremely difficult time. I try to remind myself that this is such a short period of time, and we both know that our sweet baby girl will be SO worth it when she gets here. I am now 23 weeks pregnant (almost six months). I have never been pregnant this long, so from here on out, everything will be new. I am so thankful that that Lord has allowed me to carry this baby for this long and Im praying that I can carry her to term. Due to the "not allowed to work" issue, some friends and family have put together a benefit for jacob and myself. I am just so humbled by the amount of people that are wanting to help us. It is so humbling. Please keep us in your prayers.
