I am home and resting. Everything went well and my cervix is now measuring in at 4.7 cm!!!! That is the longest I have had so yeah for a huge success.
Thank you for all the prayers and well wishes. Tom was amazing and so strong while at the hosiptal and now he is currently rocking at being an awesome nurse to me and taking care of all of Mason's needs. I will be in bed for the next few days but so far not too much pain or discomfort.

SO PLAN B: I will be going in for a cerclage tomorrow. Now this is a bit later into the pregnancy then a routine cerclage procedure but at this time it is what is best for me and the baby. It will be an outpatient procedure that should only take about 1/2 hour to an hour. I will be put under general anesthesia and we will take it one step at a time. I should hopefully be home and resting a few hours later.
Tom is taking me and will have the next week off of work to take care of Mason and I. In a few days I will go back to the doctor to ensure that all is healing well and be cleared to do more then just sit!
Please pray that all goes well, Tom feels peace while I am under and that I am not a complete nervous wreck tomorrow. Also pray that I am able to rest and not drive everyone crazy with not being able to do anything for a few days.
Even though we knew there was a high chance of this being the road we would have to face it is still a hard one. We trust in God and know that he will be with us and all the staff tomorrow. We trust in the Doctors that are overseeing my care and that this is the right decision for where we are at. Our goal still remains to keep this baby baking until February. Thanks for all your love and support during this time and we will be updating tomorrow once I am home and resting!

Well we offically have reached 23 weeks! After last week's scare it was nice to hear today that all is still going well.
Lets back up.... I have been seeing the doctor/ ultrasound tech every other week just to make sure my cervix is behaving. Last week was an on week. Well right away I knew that they did not like what they saw so it was no surprise that I ended up spending the afternoon in the specialist's office! Needless to say it was just a scare that we actually knew COULD happen but praying we would not have to face. Tom came rushing to meet up with Mason and I. He tried to help me down from my spike of anxiety (helped by the increase of hormones in my body) and be there for both me and a distraction for Mason.
Having had a preterm baby does not help ease the mind cause all along the goal has been NOT to repeat that! So as you feel yourself going in that direction it becomes very overwhelming. ......ok at least for me that was where I was at.
After seeing the specialist the plan included adding some pills....ok A LOT of pills in my eyes ...and to continue to get as much rest as possible ie sit 99% of the day!
