Cervix Shortening

Despite my bed rest and on top of everything else, a nurse from my Dr.'s office called today and said that they found something ELSE on the ultrasound that they needed to talk to me about when I go in on Wednesday, and that they will need another ultrasound for. When I got my ultrasound last Wed I was exactly 20 weeks along by my cervix has already shortened to 2.9. It should be between 4 and 4.5 right now, especially with me being on bed rest. The lowest they would consider normal at 20 weeks is 4. So........ she said we would need to discuss what else I can do to prevent preterm labor. I jokingly said, "well at this point the only thing left is for me to just stay in the hospital ha ha ha". Then she said "Honestly if things don't get better that might be what Dr. Slack decides to do."

YES! I know what you mean. I think my biggest concern with hospitalization is my kids. The second one is that I won't have internet or cell phone reception and I think I might go crazy lol. I am going to do WHATEVER this doc asks of me to avoid this option at all costs.

OMG I know! I am starting to get to the point where I just want to walk into my appointment tomorrow ask the doctor what is NOT wrong with my pregnancy because it is a shorter list lol. I had a REALLY rough time with my last pregnancy also and by the time the third trimester was almost over most of those things resolved themselves. I am hoping that I get another little miracle this time around too. :-)

OMG I am so sorry, sending prayers up for you and your baby. I cannot imagine being hospitalized this early. I really hope they are able to do something else for you. Keep us updated okay?
