..cervix update!!! ❤

so for those keeping up with me & "baby A" -- we had a visit with a specialist today regarding my cervix.
my OB thought maybe it was a little short at my 1st visit with her, so I went to get a second opinion via her request.

WELL, the specialist says that my cervix is 4cm which is perfectly normal!!! he says my OB can keep an eye on it, and if she ever feels that it's gotten shorter, I can always go back for another look, but for now.. everything is perfect!!

I've also attached a picture & uploaded it to my profile -- "baby A" was active today, and he/she had their hands at their head!! we could clearly see the jaw bone, ribs, and spine today!!!! sooo amazing to see this miracle grow before our very own eyes.. I'm so blessed to be a mommy! best feeling ever. oh, and no hint on the gender.. I asked before she started & she said it may be hard to tell, but if she could see she would tell me.. she didn't mention it, so I didn't push it.
hopefully we'll find out at our next OB appt. on the 22nd.. I'll be 17w6d then!!

once again, I can't thank all of you wonderful ladies for praying for us!!! this is all so new, unreal, amazing, plus SO many other things all at once.. your thoughts, prayers, well wishes, etc. mean everything to us!!!
keep praying for us.. prayer never gets old!!! love & hugs to all of you!!! (((: ❤

oh, p.s. otw to the appointment this morning, my daily Bible verse was:
"And the work of righteousness shall be PEACE; and the effect of righteousness QUIETNESS and ASSURANCE for ever. Isaiah 32:17 KJV" --- God knew I needed peace, and He provided assurance through this verse.. Amen!!! ❤
