Hello Second Trimester!

I never thought in a million years that I would be writing this.  After over two years of ttc, and issue after issue….we are finally able to say comfortably that we are going to have a baby!  A girl!!  It has been a relatively simple pregnancy with little to no morning sickness or issues.  That is until a few days ago.  We saw the hi-risk doc, and the NT scan looked great.  My cervix was good, but because I have had preterm deliveries, a cerclage had to be placed.  (I have had them before)  My doc did not want to wait, since he was going away and I would be 15 weeks when he got back so he scheduled the surgery for Friday.  Nevermind that he was late, (3:30!) and I was miserably hungry.  The anesthesiologist and I butted heads from the get-go.  I remembered having not been awake in the past (last one was over 8 years ago) and I did not want to have a spinal because I really fear needles.  When the doc came, we had a heart to heart and after much crying I had to suck it up and go with the spinal.  We tried for so long, I was not going to screw it up now!

I get into the operating room, and am getting the spinal when I suddenly see the nurses name badge begin to fade away…and I hear the nurse say “Shes going out!” and then I heard “Shes vagaling” and that was it.  (My blood pressure and heart rate dropped) Next thing I remember was looking up into a light, with a blue thing in my face.  They were doing the procedure, and the nurse was talking to me but I was really not paying attention.  Once they were done I went into recovery and had a severe case of tremors from the anesthesia, so I got some demerol.  It took about four hours to get stable enough to leave the PACU, and I went into recovery for about 15 minutes and was admitted into the antepartum unit.  At about 11 pm the resident OB came in and did a sonogram and thankfully, our little girl is doing GREAT!!  Sucking her thumb, kicking away.  Of course I am going to be on bed-rest for a pretty long while, but in the end, it is so worth it. 

I just hope that the first days of the second trimester are not setting the tone for the next 12 weeks!!  I don’t think either of us could handle it!!  I have a sonogram picture that I will post….
