Going through a subsequent pregnancy with a cerclage after a prior second trimester loss is a special kind of hell. Not one second of my pregnancies with Nathan and Caleb were carefree and joyful. I felt like I held my breath the whole time and begged God everyday on my knees to please let me have this one.
So I was newly pregnant with Nathan (didn't know he was Nathan yet), just had the cerclage placed the month prior, and I was having a really rough day at work at the psych hospital so I sat down and cried. Felt my blood pressure was up and he was kicking up a storm and I needed to do something to acknowledge him, bond with him, and calm me down. Poetry and Powerpoints are NOT my strong points so keep that in mind. It's what I felt compelled to do. Nathan LOVES it when I read it to him now :-)
