Hospital Scare

I've craved Olive Garden for a very long time. The last time I asked Dustin to take me, he broke his key in half in his car door, so we didn't get to go. Then last night I asked him to take me today. And his car battery dies. We get it charged, make it there, and have wonderful taste buds delight!! Max was doing flips in my belly, I can already tell he's a fan. So after an hour of eating and letting it digest and trying to stuff down more, we leave.(TMI alert!!) On our way out I stop to go pee, and as I wipe, brown mucusy discharge. Tears stream on down. I use Dustins phone to find the doctors number, call, talk to nurse, and as we start driving back to town from Elkhart, his phone almost dies. But it holds out for the nurse to call me back and tell me to head to L&D right away. Ugh. PANIC MODE. It seems like everyone is driving half of the speed limit. So it takes us almost an hour to get from Olive Garden to the hospital. When Dustin and I get up there they are already waiting for us, I get put on monitors, and Max kicks the monitor constantly. That's the only thing that made it easier/better. As two different nurses try and monitor his heartbeat, he lets you listen to it for a while, then kicks repeatedly at the monitor itself. Hard enough causing it to move. DR comes in and checks my cerclage, turns out that there is tissue around one of the holes from the stitch that is inflamed and rough, and that's what's causing the spotting. Giant sighs of relief and praises. So so wonderful to be preparing for the worse and all that happens is you get two nurses to call your unborn baby boy a booger already. =) it was nice to hear him move so much, I can feel him all the time, but nice to hear it.
Thank you all for the prayers!! and please keep them coming!
love you all!

Team Blue

I've been able to hold boys since I lost my beautiful Miah, but I still haven't held a girl. For the first 4 months I felt like my bubbles was a boy, but I didn't know for sure. After my cerclage I started getting more excited about being pregnant, still extremely bittersweet.
Today was my big ultrasound. I told my lady that I really wanted to know the gender, and she was amazing!! The U/S took over an hour, she was so thorough and kind. While she was measuring the thigh bone, we heard there is the scrotum *pause* me, my mom, and Dustin all squealed in unison. She laughed, it was a wonderful moment.
My little man is sure a mover and a shaker. His hands kept covering his face, he would wave a lot, and move and flip and have hiccups. So wonderful. The best part... Everything was perfect!! That's the most I could ask for. I am the most excited I've been so far through this pregnancy now. I'm not worried as much, I have a special peace. My cerclage is holding strong and my cervix look amazing. (as cervixs go)
Thanks again for all the prayers!! You all are incredibly wonderful!!

love you all!!

19 weeks and random survey. =)

Today Bubbles and I are 19 weeks pregnant.
Every day is a milestone now that I'm passed the age Miah was.
My sister has strep throat, so I spent the night at Dustins twice and on the couch once. There is no way I'm going to share a room with a lady with strep throat. I can't wait to find out Bubbles gender next Tuesday. Dustin and I are doing better also, we still have a lot to go through. Thanks again for all your prayers!! And please keep them coming!
Love you all lots!
