well i told the doc that i had had a few contrax yesterday and so since i have a history of pre-term labor symptoms in my other pregnancies he went ahead and gave me the fetal fibronectin test and checked my cervix. My cervix is closed and thick so that's great! but the test came back positive which could indicate that i might possibly go into preterm labor. if it was negative there would be no chance at all of preterm labor. but the positive gives them reason to be cautious. so today and tomorrow i'm off my feet and i have to go back and see him again on thursday. Oh and i also have a yeast infection so i'm on meds for that. and he gave me the bottle of gluecose so i'll have that the morning of my 28 week appt. if i make it that far because i've been told that if i have anymore contrax today i'm supposed to call him in his office. but he's not in the office on wednesdays so i'd have to call the hospital if i have any contrax tomorrow.
I'm not really that worried because i've been through this before with the boys. I'm just happy to hear that my cervix is still thinck and closed. personally i think for me that's a better indicator. but i'm going to try to be a good girl and keep my feet up even though it's laundry day and i have 4 crazyboys to take care of. DH is home for lunch so i don't have to stand up to cook the mac&cheese and the big boys are going to haul around the laundry baskets for me.
