Cervix check :-)
Wed, 09-21-2011 - 3:48pm

It went well!! First the nurse used the doppler and found a hb in the 150s. Then the MFM came in and checked the height of my uterus and said that looked good. We chatted for a bit. I've lost 4 pounds and I was thinking he might say something about that. To my surprise he said he's not concerned as long as it is less than 10% of my pre-pg weight (it is) and as long as I am eating and keeping down my food. Yay. LOL, he hugged me. Next up was the TV u/s. Cervix is 3.9, he didn't say cm or mm (3.9....can you believe it?:smileyvery-happy:), which he said anything more than 3.5 was excellent. No funneling, no opening. The MFM said it is behaving itself and we will check again in two weeks. Then he gave me another hug! So funny. He did tell me to keep taking my Zofran since I'm still a little nauseated every now and then, but it is wayyyy better.

YAY for a great appt! I love my mfm too - he never hugged me though, but every time he would talk about my "treatment" he would say "if you were my daughter..." :) made me feel a little extra special!

I love it when you get doctors that seem to give a care!
