How thrilled am I to be back at home and posting on our GOOD news?!?!? Today's appointment went very well. We were there 15 minutes before my appointment time, as we did not want to be late. I was fortunate enough to be the first person called back and my bladder was thankful. When the ultrasonographer told me I didn't need a full bladder, it was even happier. Except that meant I would not be getting an abdominal scan...I will leave it at that...
A doctor came into the room with the sonographer once I was ready. We were expecting Dr. C, but Dr. K introduced herself. We have never seen her before but she was very nice and we were encouraged after meeting with her. To set the scene a bit, my cervical length measured 3.8 cm last Monday. By Thursday, it fluctuated from 3.1 cm to 2.56 cm on ultrasound in a matter of seconds. This was not a good sign and is what prompted strict bedrest.
The scan began and my untrained eye thought there appeared to be at least some cervix left. As she began to measure, the line got longer and longer. 3.5cm!!! Dr. K was very pleased with the results. She was able to answer a few of our questions and put our minds at ease regarding the plans for the future.
So, there you have it. I know God has His hand in this situation and give Him the glory for our good news. He has heard your prayers! And ours! My next appointment is scheduled with Dr. B on Tuesday. Dr. K did not say I have to stay on strict bedrest. However, Dr. Malone, veterinarian, did! So we will lay low until Tuesday to be safe. Thank you all so much for everything you are doing on our behalf and helping carry us through this time! 18 weeks down and hopefully lots more to go! We're going to need you!
