HIGH RISK PREGNANCY

HIGH RISK PREGNANCY

So here I am 32 weeks…8 MONTHS pregnant!!!!

To say I am grateful to have made it this far would be putting it lightly! Giving birth 3 years ago to my son at 22 weeks 6 days was scary and completely life changing. The experience really left my husband and I a bit terrified to try again. But with time, our hearts and minds changed. Going into this pregnancy, we knew it would be a lot different and would require a great deal to make it full term. But with lot’s of prayer, and an amazing OB here we are!! Our journey to this pregnancy started after having a miscarriage back in Feb 2018. After my check up to make sure I was healing well from that, we had a sit down with my OB to discuss a plan of care.

GENDER REVEAL

GENDER REVEAL

A few weeks ago we had a little gathering at our house to celebrate our second little miracle! Being that we are away from all of our Family and most friends it can be a challenge. But thankfully we have a little village here made up of a few friends who actually used to live in LA and are also now living in Dallas. So we gathered on the day the I turned 22 weeks as a way to to only celebrate finding out the gender, but also to celebrate the milestone of making it to 22 weeks and NOT in pre-term labor like with Jaxson.

If you’ve been following along on Instagram then you’ll know that my pregnancy has been moving right along! I’m in my 20th week and baby C is right on track. I began getting Makena (progestrone) injections at 16 weeks, in hopes of carrying full term! The auto injectors shots are administered behind the arm and they BURN! I mean literally my arm feels like it is on fire for at least an hour to 2 post shot. I’ve gotten 5 so far and the burning is sensation is getting more tolerable, but I have starting to have soreness and knots at the injection site. Ice packs are my friends :)
