Thank you for the encouragement and there update.   The thought of being in the NICU is a scary one but it’s encouraging Hearing others who have been on that path and are now doing well with their sweet babies at home! 

Glad to read that cerclage is holding for you!  I totally understand about feeling anxious and  worrying about every little ache/pain.    I’m the same way.   It’s hard to know if it’s normal pregnancy pain or the start of preterm labor.  I’m going in every 2 weeks too but they aren’t doing cans for me anymore.   Just the fetal fibronectin test.  I wish they would still scan to give me the reassurance that cervix hadn’t shortened more.  Hang in there!

I think I’m going to run it by my doctor to see if she gives the ok for me to attend those important events for my kiddo.  It’s so hard not being able to do the things you want for your kiddos and hard for them to understand too.    Good luck with your decision about Friday.

It was discovered at my 20 week scan that my cervix was at a 1.8.   This is my 3rd baby.   I went to term with my other 2 and didn’t have this same complication.   My dr put me on a week of modified bedrest and started progesterone.   The next scan showed cervix was at 2.5 so they let me return to work half days.    The following week was still 2.5 so let me try a full week of work.  Unfortunately the next scan showed I was down to 1.7 at only almost 24 weeks.  So my dr said no more work and back to modified bedrest hopefully until 34 weeks.   I’m struggling with relying on others for basically everything.  I’m also struggling with how much is ok or when is it too much?   I feel extreme guilt that if baby does come early it will all be on me and if I’ve done too much.   Not that I’m doing much anyway bringing kids to daycare is about it, but still worries me.  I’m hoping dr oks for me to go my sons Kindergarten program and graduation.   But there is fear with that too.  I wish they continued to do ultrasounds to know  if it’s changing but they said after 24 weeks they just base it on me and how I’m feeling.  Just feeling really frustrated and like I’m letting everyone down.
