Rodney and I, along with our kiddos, are anxiously awaiting the arrival of sweet baby girl, Charley Jo, due July 24, 2021. In early March, at a routine Perinatal appointment, I was found to have a short cervix, which in turn, resulted in a cervical cerclage being placed. This stitch is meant to keep the cervix closed, as to prevent preterm delivery. After another follow-up appointment today, March 22nd, I was admitted to the hospital due to extreme shortening of the cervix, bulging bag of waters, and cramping. Although unsure of when I will be released (hoping in the next 2 days), I will be on bed rest at home, in order to keep baby growing as long as possible. The viability of baby is improved each day, and I have decided to ask for help once I am sent home, so that I can continue to rest and not send myself into preterm labor. Anyone that knows me, is aware that I do not like to ask for help, but this is so important. If anyone would like to sign up for a shift to come relax with me at home, and help with Miss Ruby during these times, it would be so much appreciated. It would be such a blessing to be able to get Baby Charley to a safe gestational age, where she is able to survive outside the womb, with no potential risks. I thank you all, from the bottom of my heart. Please feel free to message Rodney or I, or text us as well.
