1.2 cm and counting

I went for my weekly exam with the high risk specialists today and also visited my OB for my monthly check up. Well, they measured my cervix again and it's gone down to 1.2 cm. Last week it was 1.9cm and before that it was 2.8 cm. If it is below 1.5cm there is a greater risk of delivering early. This means bed rest continues and I have to be careful and really stay down as much as possible. The doctor really wants to get at least another month out of me before I deliver. I really want to make it to June.

They also did another fetal fibronectin test and the results came back negative. A negative fetal fibronectin test gives a more than 95% likelihood of remaining undelivered for the next 2 weeks. I was very happy to hear the nurse say negative when she called.

When I had my ultrasound I also got to see my little girl using the 4D technology. She is sooo adorable and looks a lot like her big sister Allie. They have the same cute little nose and perfect chin. Allie goes with me to all of my appointments and was amazed at the pictures we got of her baby sister. She kept pointing and saying baby sister. I'll have to have Will scan them so I can post the pictures for you guys to see.

Bed rest... it's been over 3 weeks now. It's very boring and restricting. I really hate not being able to get up to do the dishes or do a load of laundry. I sincerely hope that I'm able to take care of some things before our little girl arrives. Link
