First off, I'm going to say this new ivillage thing is giving me SUCH a hard time! It has taken me two days to be able to log in, I can't view half of the threads, and my original bookmark on the tablet and computer don't work. One more frustration for this irritated pregnant woman.
Ok, onto the appointment I had yesterday. I was there for three hours. First I had my u/s, then my appoinment. My cervix shortened even more to 23mm, so now the dr is more concerned than before. She consulted the high risk dr. That dr told her to do a culture on my cervix to rule out two types of infections, put me on strict bed rest, and (finally) prescribe me a medicine to stop my contractions. The medicine I'm precribed is pretty dangerous for the baby, but so is being born way too early. I'm only allowed to take it for 7 days.
Fun fact: I had to take my pants off three times! I should have just showed up naked! LoL
I have to see the high risk dr. next week for another cervical length u/s. They will also check her anotomy, too. If my cervix is shorter, I may have to have the cerclage put in. *sigh*
