Well lady's that remember me. I had a still born girl Kierra Elise on 4-10-10. I got preg. again with my third daughter in June 2010 around 24 weeks things went down hill. Once again . I went to see OB and Arianna was measuring 2 weeks behind I was 24 weeks but she measured 22 weeks. So I had to be transfered to UNC Chaple Hill. After many days of thoughts and prayers I relized that if she were to stay inside I could risk lossing her. So on November 30 2010 I delivered a beautifal girl who was give a less then 5% survival rate. She weighed only 13 ounce. Glad to say that now my girl is 6 pounds and 11 ounces and will be coming home in a few days to a week or two and best of all she is perfectly healthy. It has been a tough journey and would not wish what I have been through to anyone. But God had a plan for my

Congratulations on Arianna's homecoming and bill of health! I remember reading all the updates and pics you posted after she was born, and it seems like she has really been a little fighter. I'm so happy to hear she is doing so well and that you'll finally get to bring her home!

I'm so happy you will be bringing Arianna home soon. It's so amazing and miraculous all that you have been through. With this pregnancy I've been on bedrest since week 17. Now that I'm in my 32nd week I just feel so amazed that I will be holding my rainbow in less than 8 weeks. I was admitted to the hospital at 17 weeks and was showing signs of an incompetent cervix. My MFM saw me the next morning and less than 2 hours later I was in surgery getting a cerclage. I had many, many extra visits with my OB and MFM but things look good. My little Thumper is healthy and keeping up with measurements. I'm so happy how well Arianna is doing:) It's so amazing how tiny she once was...13 oz is how much Alicia weighed when she was born. You are so right about your outlook on life changing after going through a stillbirth and dealing with complications. I find that I stop and enjoy each day. I love that I am on bedrest and that I can focus on taking care of myself and little Thumper. I remember says with this pregnancy being so scared after the surgery that I could only manage to think one or two minutes ahead. I've never dealt with NICU so I can only imagine what that must have been like for you. I'm so glad you posted...I have been thinking about you and Arianna and it's wonderful to hear how great things are going .
