Back and Forth

I had my weekly check up yesterday and my cervix was measuring around 2.4 again.  I had a rough day on Wednesday with a lot of cramps and back pain and I think that may have made a big difference.  It is still measuring well enough that Dr. S isn't too concerned.  He did ask if I didn't want to come in every week and I told him I trusted his judgement and whatever he thought we should do, I would go along with.  With that, he said we'd continue the weekly visits but only do ultrasounds if I have been having a lot of cramping.  So I'll still be checked every week but may not get a measurement every week.  He'll just check for softening and dilation.  I can't believe we are almost to the third trimester!!  I am starting to have more hope that Sawyer will go full term and will get to come home with us right away!

I feel bad that I have neglected to mention Skeet lately on my blog.  I can't tell you how amazing my husband has been.  He is so supportive and caring.  I know he is very worried about Sawyer and I and every time I grunt or sigh he asks if I am ok (He hasn't been around a lot of pregnant women so he doesn't know that we just make noises a lot).  He has been so great about doing housework, cooking, and making sure I don't have to be up and around a lot.  I have gotten many meals in bed and can count on getting anything I ask for.  He has also been so very ambitious about getting our house in order and getting Sawyer's room ready.  I honestly don't know what I would do without him.  I am such a lucky lady to have tricked an amazing guy like Skeet into marrying me.  Words cannot describe what an awesome husband he is.  I don't think he reads this but if by chance he is.. I love you babe!  You're the best!
