I'm doing my best not to worry. I was in the hospital Wed-Fri b/c at my sonogram on Wed. they discovered I have short cervix. I felt no pain, no symptoms at all of anything. Baby was moving mucho the last 2 days. Today, just a little. And after I ate pad thai last night my belly felt very tight. I figured from maybe eating too much. I just ate fish and broccoli about an hour ago, and my tummy feels so tight again.
I did walk a few blocks today and climbed a few stairs at subway...wondering if this made a difference. I will speak to my nurse tomorrow. I missed her call today. The resident mds said I was not on bedrest, just to walk as I usually did and lift less. I asked them several times what i should do differently and they said really nothing, just take it easy but walk, yoga, whatever I did before just don't overextend myself and stay hydrated. However, the older nurses said bedrest.
This tight tummy is worrying me. I have a follow up appt. on Thursday.
I even asked the residents to give me what they were telling me in writing. So they gave me an article from June 2013 from the American College of OB/GYN entitled Activity Restriction Among Women with a Short Cervix. I am about to read it now.
