How Sweet It Is...

To be Nine Months Pregnant!!!

This milestone is huge for me! Many of you know that my first pregnancy ended at 25 weeks. However, many of you don't know that ever since then I've been labeled high-risk due to an incompetent cervix so I am monitored very closely during my pregnancies. I first have to get a cerclage surgical procedure between the 12 & 14th week. This is where they stitch your cervix. After that, I have to see the doctor and get an ultrasound every 2 weeks to check to see if my cervix is staying closed (I have enough ultrasound pics to fill a photoalbum :-). Then at 20 weeks, I have to start getting a weekly shot to help strengthen my uterus. Hallejuia...my last shot is this week! I also did this whole routine when I was pregnant with my daughter and the Lord blessed her to come full-term!

Now you know why I'm rejoicing over the Lord sustaining this pregnancy for 9 months! God has been so good! Please pray for me and this baby...energy during the last 3 weeks of pregnancy, safe delivery, c-section recovery, & the early months of family adjustments with this new little one. Unless the Lord has a different birth date planned for Baby Turner, my planned c-section date is Wednesday, July 28!

Nine months & counting...
Then we'll be able to meet this sweet little one...
