2012 was both hard and amazing at the same time.
When I reflect back, I can hardly believe how far i've come.
From a second failed IVF treatment in March to conceiving naturally 7 weeks later to threatening to miscarry at 6 weeks to cervical cerclage and 30 weeks of my life spent in bed.
What a crazy, terrifying, amazing, bittersweet journey.
The stitches that held my cervix closed and kept my second son safe in my womb were removed last week.
I walked out of the hospital with a smile on my face and a lump in my throat.
The removal was another hard and familiar step in this pregnancy.
Every day, every hour, every minute, as I grow this baby I think of Liam.
Contractions were strong last night and eased this morning.
My body is preparing for labor any day now.
We are ready to meet our second son.
Thank you so much to those who are checking in and thinking of us.
I'm sorry for being quiet here in this place of missing and hoping and waiting, and not really knowing how to articulate it all.
