Here are a few of the latest pics we got of Taylor yesterday.  She is one hyper little baby, constantly moving throughout the ultrasound!  Yesterday, she was working so hard on getting her hands in her mouth.  It looked like she was trying to suck her thumb.  Our little Paige did the same thing, so it’s cool to notice the similarities between Taylor and the Green Beans.

She was also busy drinking amniotic fluid.  We all watched her in amazement as she open and closed her little mouth and swallowed the fluid.  It’s one of those little things that only parents can be amused by.  IMG_1083

We got a few 3D pictures, but they can be hard to decipher.  These are just pictures of the pictures because I was too lazy to actually scan them in, so they are a little hard to see.  In the picture below, she’s got her hands up near her head again working on getting those hands in her mouth.IMG_1085

My cervical check went great yesterday too!  It has measured consistently at 4.5 – 4.2cm, which is great!  A normal cervix length is about 3 cm.  Two weeks ago at my last check up, I had a Braxton-Hicks contraction while the technician was checking my cervical length and it actually measured 5.25cm!  Josh and I joke that I have the miraculous growing cervix! That’s really not an accurate measurement of my cervix since I was cramping at the time, but it’s good to know that my cervix got longer, not shorter, when I had the contraction.  

Taylor already brings us so much joy and happiness in our lives.  She’s given me so much hope and has really turned things around for me.  I am so thrilled to be having an uneventful pregnancy.  I literally thank God for being able to get out of bed in the morning.  Going through all that we’ve experienced has really put things into perspective for us.  There’s no taking this for granted.  Everyday is a miracle!

    My Story
    Welcome to my life…

    Over the past three years it has been flipped upside down. I am 31 years old, and married to my hubby of three years, Josh. We have 4 beautiful angel babies, who are fondly known as our “Green Beans”. The first of my quads, Heidi, held on as long as she could and was born on January 31, 2009 after pPROMing at 17 weeks. A few weeks later, I pPROM’d with my sweet Lily. Lily, Paige, and Rylan were all born at 22 weeks on February 23, 2009. Just after being released from the hospital empty handed, I returned with a high fever and infection. Two of the nights I spent in the hospital that week, I honestly thought I was going to die. It was the sickest and most hopeless I’ve ever been. I’m pretty sure my diagnosis was a broken heart.

    Our journey to becoming parents has had its share of happiness and heartbreaks. I got through every day by staying close to Josh, friends and family, blogging, and relying on God that my future will be bright. All the love and support I’ve gotten has greatly helped me manage……I am alive and well, and want to be my absolute best as a result of this.

    On May 1st 2011, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Taylor, into this world. She is our miracle baby and brings so much joy and happiness in our lives. She is such a gift from God.

    I have come out of all of this with a better appreciation of life. I hope to make the best of this situation by helping others who will experience a similar loss.
