Those pesky ligaments

I went to see the doctor Friday afternoon. I was having strange pains at the bottom of my very large belly. I thought it was just round ligament pain, but I wasn't sure. So, I called my doctor. They get you in fast when you mention you have a history of incompentent cervix and preterm labor.

The doctor examed me. My cervix is fine. There's no funneling. The stitch is still doing it's job. The monster's heartrate was in the 140s every where she checked. She said it was probably just round ligament pain. She sent me home and said to set with a pillow under my knees this weekend to relieve the pain. That's it. I feel fine now.

The little monster has starting kicking hard enough for me to feel him now. He has been kicking me since he grew legs! The first ultrsound we had at the perinat, the little monster was laying on his back kicking and punching my bladder. He was having a good time.

Here are some pictures of Caleb's memorial service:

Family potrait. That's Caleb in the little brown box. His friends Ugly Inguana and Bernie are next to him. The hospital gave us the white memorial box.

Cary giving his eulogy.

Here are some crowd shots. A ton of people came. It was so touching to see so many people who had been touched by Caleb's life.

The place where we had Caleb's memorial service has an area just for babies, Babyland. Share Atlanta donated an angel statue and a bench to Babyland. There are bricks all around the angel you can purchase in memory of your baby. All the money goes to Share Atlanta. Heather and Ken have brick in memory of their first son, Garrett. Cary and I are talking about purchasing a brick in memory of Caleb.
(blogger's acting up again. I'll add a picture of the angel later.)

Hmmm, I don't seem to remember someone mentioning to her sister when she talked to her ON FRIDAY that she was going to go to the doctor or even call the doctor about the tummy was suggested by someone so wise the night before. Oh well, brilliance isn't always appreciated. Maybe your brain is getting like mom's and you told her three times thinking you had told your sisters? Just a thought!

I am so glad that everything is ok with your cervix. I have taken a couple of trips to L&D because of contractions; it's always better to be safe than sorry!

Sweet pictures. Still thinking of you and praying for your family.
