Journal entry by Krista Cohen

This mama is off bedrest after 3 months (basically the entire second trimester), and baby boy is growing great!! He is now in the 79th percentile, and so far my placenta is doing great too because baby boy is growing so well. The hematoma could no longer be seen on the ultrasound this time (yay!), so I’m off bedrest and back to just pelvic rest , no exercise, and no heavy lifting. She did say I can pick up my Ruby girl next Thursday (just need to wait a week to let my body heal more fully). I’m even able to taper off my preterm labor med :) I’ll go back again in 3 weeks and have my very first appointment without an ultrasound this entire pregnancy! After that, we’ll have another growth scan 2 weeks later and that’s when weekly appointments will begin to continue monitoring the baby’s growth and my placenta. We couldn’t have asked for better news today - our big prayers came with big answers and we couldn’t be more thankful. If baby boy doesn’t arrive by 39 weeks, she will induce me because the risk of stillbirth is significantly increased by the due date and beyond in pregnancies where the placenta has been impacted. We’re hoping with how big he is already (3 lbs 2 oz at 27 weeks 5 days), that he will arrive a little early like his sister did (she came at 38w 2d). Looks like we are smooth sailing for a little while, and we pray that continues!

Thanks for continuing your prayers for our little boy! ❤️🙏🙌
