  • Thank you for all the lovely comments last week. I feel blessed! Some of you asked about my pregnancy. From weeks 6-26 I had debilitating fatigue. While not fun and a logistical challenge, no lasting impact is expected from that to either me or my baby

  • caden1206- Did the IgM come back negative? You have a very good perspective on BHs. I REALLY hope you get to have a full term baby. You are getting so close to that now!

    My IgM came back negative, so I do not have an active CMV infection.

    High-Risk due to short cervix (.6cm) as well as possible placenta accreta.
