Hey y'all, it's been awhile since I've updated about my pregnancy. I decided to start keeping a blog about it since having to describe in detail the ups and downs to friends and family was getting tiresome, but I realized I haven't said anything about it here. The link's in my sig if you want the total 411.

Yesterday, I turned 28 weeks and had my last appointment with the perinatologist! My bleed measured 11cm (about the size of an orange) 2 weeks after I started bleeding at the end of November... I still have no idea how big it was before then and I'm kind of scared to imagine it. I'm happy to say, it's down to a tiny 2cm (about the size of a postage stamp! I'm released from bed rest and the peri's care, but told I still don't need to be doing any lifting and stuff like that.

Better still, it hasn't damaged the placenta or the baby!

The baby's measuring within a day of my due date, so pretty much, right on schedule! I'm still really in shock. I wasn't expecting to make it this far and I can't even wrap my head about the fact that this bleed didn't destroy the placenta.

I'm not religious, but by god, I can't deny a miracle when it looks me right in the face... or the inside of the stomach, rather. Before I get all over-emotional and weepy, lemme say, thanks to everyone who said a little prayer for me because it truly seems to have been answered.

I'm so so so glad to hear that the bleed has gotten so small after being so awful, and so much the better to hear about the healthy placenta and baby!!!!

Hopefully the last bit of the pregnancy for you will be completely uneventful - you've had enough during the first 2/3!

That's so amazing! I had read your blog after you'd done the initial post describing the bleed and all, and I would not have expected to hear that it's almost gone and that you're off bed rest, either. That's something like a miracle in my opinion, too! I'm so glad you're off bed rest and can have a "normal" end of your pregnancy, and most of all, likely carry this little one to term and not have to spend weeks in the NICU. Hooray!!!!
