P&PT for a PG friend

Hi ladies,

There is a woman in my neighborhood moms group that is 20w PG and needs all the P&PT she can get right now so I'm reaching out for your help.

She has a 3yo DD and this is her 3rd pgcy, I believe, TTC #2. She lost the other babies right around this time in the pgcies, most recently just last spring.

She just had emergency surgery a few days ago to sew her cervix shut because she was already 2cm dilated. She is now on bed rest and just needs to make it to 36 weeks.

Please keep L. and her baby in your prayers. Thank you! :-)

Christine, is in my prayers... If it makes you feel any better (and you can tell her the story if you feel it will help her). I have a very close woman (she used to be our baby sitter, but became really close to my mom and we are still in touch), who went through something similar. In her case she lost 4 pgcies because her cervix started dilating around 18 weeks... It was devastating... But, at last, between cerclage (the surgery to stitch the cervix) and strict bedrest, she was able to carry two healthy pregnancies to term. She has 2 very healthy boys now.

Update from my friend L. Please continue to pray for her and baby.

I'm leaking amniotic fluids as of late Sunday night. Initially they though it was urine and tested negative, but as of this morning I leaked again and tested positive. MFM says 70% of delivering within a week. We spoke with the NICU doctor and alot of our worries have been put to rest. I know it's only a matter of time before this baby will be here. I pray that our health and safety is ok. Thank you all for your continued prayers, love, and support for me and my family. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Well, although definitely a preemie, I think the baby would have good chances to make it! I will keep her in my prayers!!
