nothing to write about

I set up this blog to keep everyone up to date on Caleb. Now, I have nothing to write about.

I survived Mother's Day. It was my first Mother's Day. It was also our first holiday without Caleb.

I started the P17 shots last Friday. I get one shot every week. A nurse comes out to my house to give me the shot. The shots are to keep me pregnant longer. I'll only heard good things about the shots. The nurse told me everyone she has given the shots to has carried their pregnancy to term. Everyone she has given the shots to has a history of preterm labor.

I go back to work Monday. I had taken some time off after Caleb passed away. I would have gone back this week, but my work is moving this week. Monday is the first day in the new building. It will be fun to watch everyone unpack my stuff. ;) The old building was about 15 miles from my house - not too bad. It was about a 45 minute drive during rush hour. The new building is about 6 miles from my house. In rush hour traffic, it will take me a full 10 minutes to get there. Everyday after work since November, I have gone straight to the hospital to see Caleb.

You will enjoy telling everyone where to "put it". It will be good for you to have a different routine. Maybe Cary will have dinner ready for you when you get home each evening!!! Now that would be nice!!!

Hey there. I've been reading for a couple of weeks. I can't even imagine what you're going through during this bittersweet time. I wish you all the best with your pregnancy. My firstborn came at 32 weeks and was IUGR. With my 2nd I had to give myself daily Lovenox injections. We managed to keep her in until 38 weeks and she was bigger than she would have been without the injections. Back on the injections now for #3. I'm hopeful that things will go smoothly for you this time since you're being watched closely and being proactive with the meds. Best of luck to you.

I am sure there is lots of stuff swimming around in your head. I keep saying I wish I would have started blogging when we lost our girl last year. I can only imagine what you are feeling and going through right now. KNow that you are in my thoughts. Oh and I am on the shots, too. Fun stuff. How many weeks are you right now? Do you have a cerclage?

I got a cerclage on April 4 at about 13 weeks. I am now 19 weeks. So far, my cervix is doing great. It also did great with Caleb, until 26 weeks.

Hey, EL--just letting you know you're still in my prayers, and that we're glad to have you back at work. I think it was really smart not to come back til after the move. This change will be great for you!

You can use the site to talk about Lockeness. We all need to know about him. You can also use it to fight for research for premature births.

You are in my thoughts. It has helped me to write out various things I am feeling. GL
