Praise The Lord!

After a week of contemplating every possible situation that could occur today, I finally have my answer! My cervix was UNCHANGED! Praise the Lord! 2.8 is still not a good measurement, but that fact that it didn't get shorter was great news! Susan, the ultrasonographer, knows who I am now and did an ultrasound to show my mom little Canon. He is still nestled down in my pelvis, face down with his little hands up by his chest. Such a snuggler already. He is camera shy and never wants to turn over for a facial shot. Since my mom flew in today she is helping me pack and do laundry to get ready to fly to Dallas tomorrow. Phillip will help us through security and get to our gate, so I should be able to continue my "take it easy, moderate bedrest, lay down as much as possible" orders. I was just so thrilled with the news because after last time I was preparing for the worst. For them to wisk me off to Labor and Delivery and tell me I couldn't go home. Again, Praise the Lord.
So we are off to Dallas. We will have tons of cute and fun pics of our trip when we return.
Please don't stop praying for us, I am only 20 weeks today and my cervix needs to hold out for 16 more weeks!!! wow.
Thank you all,
Shelly

We are thrilled for you guys! Bryce told me out of the blue this morning that "nothing is impossible with God, mama" and I couldn't agree more! So, I pass that beautiful word to you from one "fearfully and wonderfully made creation" to another:) Bless you!

PRAISE THE LORD!!! I would have been so sad if you hadn't been able to come here, but that really doesn't matter. All that matters now is that the Lord is answering our prayers. Can't wait to see you tomorrow! Love you!

Hey Baby! I love you and just want you to know that I am praying for you and Canon everyday... almost every hour. The Lord is good and he will carry us through this time. Thanks for being such a trooper. You amaze me. Phillip
