Angela and Amy,

You guys have out the biggest smiles on my face. I am more hopeful now than I was two days ago, thanks to this forum. Whenever I feel down and low, I just come here and read all the success stories.

I am 20 weeks and 4 days????. I just shared your success stories with my hubby and he got all excited.

Angela, he suggested the gel suppositoriesin the event I was unsuccessful in getting Makena covered by my insurance company. Thankfully I got covered. I go back on Thursday which will be 6 days after taking the first shot. I am hoping for some good news. My hubby and I gave been every night for God to see yes through.......

You and your husband have lots to feel hopeful about! You and your doctor are doing everything you can. Let us know how your appointment goes. Will you have another ultrasound on Thursday? Stay positive!

Angela,

Yeah the specialist said for now he would like to do weekly checks on my cervix. I will definitely let you know how it goes.

Thanks!!!!

Hey ladies,

Angela here is my update
Hope y'all had a great day......

I went in for CL measurement . The doctor seemed very impressed by the manual examination he did. He says my cervix feels pretty strong even though it may be short. 'Twas 2cm, gained some length back but he thinks I may have a dynamic cervix. He showed me the pictures of the cervix and he said 2cm is completely closed but my true measurement is 4cm.....with the funneling at the top which seems pretty stable from last week.

And he is hopeful that if I continue my bed rest, shots and of course the suppositories i started yesterday, I will make it to at least 32 weeks and then at that time he will take me off bed rest.

So here is to soldiering on. We got these bedrest mommas :) :)
