Because I've had a LEEPS procedure where they cut the tip of my cervix off due to pre-cancer cells, i will be getting ultrasounds of my cervix every 2 weeks. If there is any thinning, then they will stitch my cervix closed.
I was measuring larger for my date. We will just have to wait until Feb. 12 for our BIG ultrasound until we can see what is going on in there:) I have been feeling a lot of flutters that are getting stronger and stronger. John is very excited to feel the baby move, even though that is a ways off.

John loves my ever growing tummy and will have little conversations with baby. He says "I love coming home from 3 days of work to find you always a little bit bigger.....WE"RE HAVING A BABY (with a goofy smile on his face!" I hope we can agree soon on a name......

I just made my level 2 ultrasound for Feb. 12 2010 @ 2pm. I was quite disappointed when they told me that their policy did not allow children under 16 to come along. This then worried me as to if my children would be able to witness the birth. So i called up OB at Kent General and spoke with a nurse. She said the sign in the front of the hospital recommends no one under 16 in the hospital as a visitor, but is only a recommendation. She said some nurses will support me and some may not and that i need to tell every Doctor that i see my intentions. My children have all witnessed each other's births and we've done IVF/microsort as a family......every one of us has done our part to bring this new one into the world! That calmed me down to hear i can and will have them present at the birth in July.

Dec. 4 2009
Today I had an OB appointment. There are around 7 doctors at my OB clinic. Today I met Dr. Wong and he is such a sweet man. He called me sweet heart just a few hundred times, listened intently, and calmed all my fears. He even brought in the in-office ultrasound, which gave us a fuzzy photo of baby who is healthy and growing. My cysts are shrinking and everything looks good=) I had all the 1st routine stuff done like a pap smear, urine sample, blood pressure, weight check (which I have so far gained 2 pounds). We were offered an ultrasound and blood work at week 12 to scan for diseases such as Down syndrome, but we’ve opted out. So I will have another ultrasound, a level 2 that I have to schedual between weeks 15 and 18. I think I’m going to schedual it for 17 weeks so that we can get a 100% on the sex of the baby. I go back for another OB appointment on Dec. 31.
