It's Been a Bumpy Few Days

I have been in and out of labor and delivery this past week due to contractions and a bacterial infection.  Trent and I would really appreciate your prayers now more than ever. I have been put on Procardia to stop the contractions  and it seems to help some.  We got our appt with the specialist moved up to this coming Thursday so maybe we can see what's really going on.  I'll do my best to keep updates coming. We are now 22 weeks and pushing forward.  Our prayer is to make it full term but we must make it to 25 weeks for him to have a fighting chance at survival.  Canon is really on the move these days and Trent can now feel and see him move.  It's amazing!!!

20 week 3-D ultrasound

We tried to get him to stay face up for a while but he wasn't liking it.  This is the best we could get!

Isn't this so sweet?  We are so in love!

20 weeks

   We are now 20 weeks and so happy to be moving forward.  Canon is a pretty busy little boy, which makes me happy because I feel him moving throughout the day.  Usually eating something sweet or cold gets him on the move.  Our sweet boy is quite the chub and always measures ahead.  We go back once again to the specialist this coming Monday and will have my cervix checked and also hopefully hear that my low placenta has moved up.  We think it probably has moved because our twenty week ultrasound with my regular doctor showed that it has moved up.....At least the nurse thought it had and we are hopeful that she was correct.  We are so blessed and can't wait for the day we meet our healthy little chubby boy.  We want him to stay put for a few more months before he decides to join our family though.  I'll keep you guys updated on how our appt. goes with the specialist next Monday.  Have a great weekend!

I have a few pictures to show you.  I'll try to get them up soon!

We Met our First Goal

We are now 19 weeks and moving full speed ahead.  At 19 weeks with the twins, which was also on a Saturday I was in the hospital, hours away from delivering Easton and Parker.  Thanks for all of the prayers. We have two appts. coming up and hopefully will receive great news.

I've Got a Mover and Shaker in my belly...

   Yes, friends I am soo happy to be able to say that Canon is on the move in my tummy.  It makes my heart smile and I find my self thinking how in the world do I deserve this miracle growing in my stomach.  The past few days have worried me a tiny bit due to the fact that I have my third UTI infection.  I just finished an antibiotic two weeks ago and am now on yet another.  What is the deal? I know this is common during pregnancy but I had not trouble with this when I was pregnant with our twins.  I don't mind the pain but I do worry about taking antibiotics for the third time because I don't want my sweet boy to have complications because of something I did.  I know he will most likely be perfectly healthy but I guess my mommy instinct is kicking in.  Do you guy's mind doing me a favor?  Please pray that these medications do not affect Canon.  I have researched for at least two hours to make sure this will not hurt him but still I worry.  I do appreciate all of the sweet comments and prayers.  Canon has our heart and I just want him to get here healthy and happy.  We are six days away from when I delivered Easton and Parker.  My anxiety is actually getting better because I know in my heart that Canon will be just fine and healthy.

Appt. with Specialist and 18 week update...

Our appt. with the specialist was amazing!  Canon is doing fabulous and growing like a weed.  He still measures ahead, so we are pretty sure we will have a January baby instead of February.  We are so blessed and give God all of the glory for our sweet boy.  Of course we still have small worries about the next few weeks.  We are only one week away from where we were when I had the twins. This makes my heart hurt and of course gives me slight anxiety.  I've never been more than five months pregnant so can't imagine actually making it to twenty weeks or twenty five weeks for that matter.  We were told that if we at least made it to thirty two weeks there would be a 100% survival rate.  Lord please let us make it to forty weeks although I feel at ease that he would be just fine if born a little earlier. My placenta is considered low lying right now which at first made me a little nervous but the Dr. explained that it would likely move up and cause no trouble.  If it were to stay where it is i would be diagnosed with Placenta Previa which would cause me to have a section.  I don't mind as long as Canon is ok.  Basically, the placenta covers the cervix and doesn't allow the baby to come out if you has Placenta Previa.  If he were to be born naturally there would be a problem with hemorrhaging so a c-section is the way to go.  Anyway, like I said, the Dr. thinks it will only get better as we go through the pregnancy and that it will not even be an issue.  He said it can only get better and higher up instead of lower, so we should be just fine.  That is our update for now.  We go back on September 22nd to have my cervix checked again but we think it will still be perfect.  I think we will see the specialist every three weeks from here on out.  This does keep my mind at ease I have to say.  I'll see my regular doctor again on the 14th , but this will just be a routine appt.  Thanks so much for keeping up with us!
