24 Week Appt & Steroid Shot

Fri, 03-09-2012 - 6:51pm

My appt. today went well but not great but was still ok. I lost more cervical length so I only have .5 cm left! eeek... But my cerclage is holding strong, I am not dilated and hardly any contractions which is all good. So the great news is, I get to remain on bed rest at home for another week and not in the hospital!! I will also need to continue the weekly checks until at least 28 weeks now. I also took a steroid shot to help develop Will's lungs in case he comes early.

God is good and so are all of you. Thanks for being a part of my support system ladies.

I'm glad you're able to stay home. Bed rest isn't fun, but it's better to be on bed rest at home than in the hospital. (BTDT) It's great that your cerclage is doing well!

So far, so good with the cerclage holding! Being home is definitely better than being in the hospital. (((((HUGS)))))
