Hi ladies! We had an ultrasound today to check growth and my cervix.
I am happy to report that my cervix is holding steady and has stopped funneling! Woohoo! At the 20 week scan it was 5 cm. Last week it was 3.4 cm. Same today :) I don't know about the dilating, whether or not that has also stopped, but I imagine it has. I have the feeling I will be heading back to work next week!
We will find that out for sure on Thursday :) The only concern now is that 10 minutes up and about and I start contracting pretty regularly (though not as strong - probably because of the meds). So we are spacing out my doses a bit to see what happens the next couple of days, and see what the OB says on Thurs. My concern is that while I have a desk job, I get worn out easily, which also causes more contractions, and I don't want to have to go to the damn hospital every time they escalate. So, we shall see.
Cricket is looking great :) 2lbs 5oz, with head firmly buried in my pelvis. Also insanely active. Thus, no decent pics today. We have a couple 2D profiles, but they are not so hot, so I won't post them. We saw her drinking! That was pretty darn cool! Chugging away, LOL.
Also did the GD test today (which I may have TOTALLY biffed). They didn't tell me not to eat anything after the drink while we waited, and it was non-fasting, so I had some Fritos. After they did the b/w, she said, "Now you can go eat." Ummmm....oops. I held my mouth and am hoping I didn't blow it. Will find out Thursday on that as well.
The peri did mention I may need to be on thyroid meds permanently, as they see that a lot. Even though before I was pregnant I had no issues. *Sigh* Oh, well.
Hubby has also stated that even if I am released to go to work I am still banned from doing anything at home. LOL. We'll see how long that lasts! Ha!
So, anywho, good news, and will have more to report in a few days.
Thank you all SO much for all the well wishes :) It has meant so much to me!
Oh! And someone mentioned wanting to see the tattoo BEFORE I swallowed a basketball, so Saturday I will do my best to remember to post a before and current picture for you :) Also of the one on my belly and how that has grown/changed.
