What's Your Story? Tell us. / Hi, I'm new here! :)

I've been lurking for a few days now & decided to join :) As serious as we are about our situation being pregnant it brings me great comfort to know I'm not alone sigh..

I have had 2 very uneventful & full term pregnancies. My husband & I decided to try for one last baby & again, all was well until 6-7 weeks when I started spotting & having weird pain. An U/S showed I had a shortened cervix & this concerned my obgyn. I was instantly put on progesterone pills & all seemed fine again.

At my 12 week scan I showed a cervical length of 2.8cm & was told it was 'adequate but on the short side'. I went home not thinking anything about it.

At my 20-21 week scan my cervical length was 1.1cm  >:( Imagine my shock & emotions get the best of me when I was hospitalized & put on immediate & complete bed rest :( I spent a week in hospital & was able to head home once my husband & I had made proper arrangements for help & new schedules for our other 2 kids.

I am now 24 weeks & am starting week 3 of bed rest. I just had 2 betamethasone injections the last 2 nights done & am on progesterone pills & have a blood thinner injection every night. It has needless to say been a very different & much more invasive pregnancy. I'm hanging in there & trying to stay focused on having this baby (our 3rd boy :) ) until full term!

Best of luck to all the ladies here, we can do it!
