I know I am not a very regular poster but I lurk here a lot and I have to tell this to some other people who will understand!
At my ultrasound today they saw that my cervix had shortened from 4 centimeters down to 1.9 centimeters. They sent me over to labor and delivery right away and found out I am definitely not regularly contracting or dilating so they let me go home, thank goodness. Now I am on progesterone suppositories (again!) and modified bed rest. I am only supposed to be alone with my daughter for three or four hours a day.
I am so not thrilled about any of this! I am worried for this new baby and for my poor daughter. And for me because this will probably mean having my mother come stay with us...I love her but she drives me nuts.
Beth, wife to Cass and SAHM to the little french goose, 6/17/09...and now also mom to a second wee girlie 2/6/12. Nursing with low supply, domperidone and a lact-aid.
I have Stiff Person Syndrome and my other car is a candy apple red Rascal. Feel free to ask me about it.
Hugs. You'll get through, somehow, it always finds a way of working out. I was realizing the other day that we've reached the point of viability, and while every day more inside makes a huge difference, chances are our babies would make it if they were born even now. I think about and take some small comfort in this during BH's. (I didn't have BH's until way later with DD.) Stick, baby, stick! And peace for you as you go through all that happens between now and then.
Hugs mama. Give yourself all the rest you need and think sticky baby thoughts.
Happily married to my soul mate, and a mommy of two girls + another baby due in June!
