Appointment Update

Psalm 147:13 - For he hath strengthened the bars of thy gates; he hath blessed thy children within thee.

My heavens! Cervix is measuring 4.03 cm! Praise God! It has been consistently measuring at 3.5 and now, 2 weeks later it is 4.03 cm. All I can say is wow! Everything looks good, I gained 3lbs total (177) so far and blood pressure is good.
Baby weighs 13 oz , is measuring 2 days ahead, and everything looks good. The downside is my next appointment is in 4 weeks instead of 2 weeks. Thats okay, I can always ask my OB for a c/l check for peace of mind. The MFM did remind to keep taking it easy, as some women when they see their cervical length remaining stable, they start to act like a normal pregnant women. Um... does he know who is talking to? The Queen of Anxious! I will definitely not be taking any liberties.

I did promise myself that I will relax after this appointment, so now I am trying to find a way to reward myself. What to do or buy? Any suggestions?

In other news, I am planning a slumber party for the women in my family and have no idea what to do. Yes, can you believe I have never attended a slumber party so I need some suggestions or advice on some things to do. Thanks!

Awaiting my expected end,


  1. Praise God! So happy you are doing well Marie, as you were on my heart and I prayed for you last night :)

    As for the slumber party....it's all about pizza! You can even make your own. Just go to a local pizza shoppe (pizza hut or Domino's) and buy their dough and get your ingredients at the grocery. OR, just order it delivered :)

    Get some great movies and just have fun! Oh and junk food is a must ;)

    xxxx have FUN

  2. Praise the Lord!!!!!!! That is awesome! Enjoy your slumber party.

  3. WOOP, WOOP!!!! That is awesome news! Still praying! Have a Merry Christmas sweet mama!

  4. WhooHoo! I'm so glad to hear that everything is going smoothly! Movies & popcorn & baking cookies is always a fun way to spend a night with the girls. Have fun! (((HUGS)))

  5. PRAISE THE LORD!!!! Oh, my heart is just smiling!!! I know what you can buy - something for the baby in Newborn size! ((hug))

  6. Did you find out the sex? When I learned that Nora was a girl... I bought some beautiful hairbows. :)

  7. Excited to hear that your appointment went well!

  8. I would buy some nice maternity clothes for when you are bigger, like 34 weeks or so. It will reflect the hope that you undoubtedly feel, and that we all have for you. Or, if you are not superstitious, buy some baby stuff.

  9. Congratulations on a good appointment! I hope you have a great party. xoxo

  10. I know I have not stopped by in awhile but I just wanted to let you know that I am soo happy to hear of your wonderful progress, Marie! Keep up the great work, mama! You are in my thoughts and prayers always!

  11. Hooray for a wonderful appointment! SO thrilled things continue to go well for you!

    As for slumber party...

    I'm with the others: Pizza and movies. I'd also buy some pretty nail polish so you and the girls can do manicures and pedicures....and maybe some masks/cleansers to do facials. How fun!
