my journey through the loss of my first son and the life of my second

Wednesday, December 15, 2010


My sweet Trent was born at 22 weeks due to my incompetent cervix. By the time we reached the hospital at 21 weeks 2 days, my cervix was fully dialated. It was the hope that laying on hospital bed rest we could keep him in long enough that he could live outside the womb. But, I contracted a deadly infection that lead to inducing him to save my life. A cerclage could have saved his life.

Tomorrow is the day for this baby. Tomorrow I check into the hospital at 6:30am to have a cerclage placed. The cerclage will stitch my cervix shut in hopes that this baby can stay put until at least 36 weeks.

Please pray for my team of doctors, that the baby does great during surgery, and that I come out infection free.

I am scared beyond scared...but, without this surgery history will surely repeat itself.

I'm sorry you are so scared. You're so brave for doing this - it must be so hard. I know you don't really have a choice, but it's still brave to go through it. Thinking of you and a safe and well sprinkle!
