Just A Small Issue...

At my appointment this week we did find that my cervix is shortening, but not funneling.  Dr. S said he is not going to get too concerned unless it gets below 2.5 cm and I start dilating.  It is currently at 2.7 cm with no dilating (he measured 3 or 4 times to be sure).  For those of you who don't know, most normal pregnant women have a cervix that measures around 4 or 5.  I am not on any restrictions yet and I am keeping my fingers crossed that I don't have to.  He did tell me to use my best judgement and I will be going back for another measurement in 2 weeks.
I was just looking at my ruler and 2.5 cm is just over an inch.  It's incredible when you really think about what a woman's body does when she is carrying a baby!  So crazy!!  I can't believe we have less than 15 weeks until our due date.  Before you know it we will be a family of 5 (plus the dog) with 2 little boys in our home.  It is so amazing that this is happening again. It still hasn't sunk in for me and I am really not sure it will until Cooper gets here or maybe even until he's a year old since I am just barely able to look at Sawyer and not wonder when someone is going to wake me up from this incredible dream! 
I am so blessed and feel so undeserving of all that has been given to me.  I only hope I can show my appreciation by being the best  mom possible for my beautiful children!

Hey! I am finally reading blogs! I hope you can keep your little guy in to get fully cooked. I'm jealous you have a name picked out. You guys are nice and prepared. Kody and I still can't decide. Anyway, I hope all goes well for you with the rest of this pregnancy. :)
