 Hi ladies,

My name is Shelly. I'm 32, 4 months pregnant with, hopefully, my first full term born child. Single (big deal, right? : ) I have a high risk pregnancy so I have an ultrasound every 2 weeks. They are watching for signs of an incompetent cervix.

This last Thursday, I had an ultrasound. My cervix is nice and long and closed and they said it's a 60/40% chance a girl. I know, 60/40 may as well be 50/50, but we'll take it. :) My mom, my sisters and I, that is. Of course, the gender doesn't matter, a healthy baby is all I'm after. 

I am so happy with the news that my cervix is so far so good. But that's not even the best part. My baby, (girl?), is always moving around and I can see it on the ultrasounds, how amazing is that? Well, this last time, she/he was sleeping or just relaxing with it's arm/hand under it's chin. Clear as day. So cute! From that moment, I fell in love. How sweet and precious my baby is going to be. She sleeps like her grandpa! Ha! And, last night I had a dream about her. I was caressing her pretty, little head while she slept. Wow. The feeling I felt in my dream was like nothing I've ever felt before. I think it's true love.

 Her(him?) and I, we got this.

Just to add: Since I've found out I was pregnant, the baby's father has been very selfish and making this all about him and his concerns. Recently, I've decided he will have to figure out what he wants to do on his own. All the effort to have a friendship and make this the most awesome thing has only been coming from me. I am choosing to only focus on the positives and growing a happy, healthy baby. That's all I can do

I look forward to chatting, sharing experiences and meeting other moms.

Moving forward. Her/him and I, we got this. : )

Aww, congrats!  

I'm sorry your baby's dad isn't being helpful but I think it's great that you're feeling positive and that you're ready to take on the world for your little one!
