At a recent appointment, Mike and I were notified that my cervix was on the short side so we were scheduled for a two week follow-up. That appointment took place last Wednesday. Two days before Mike and I were set to move into our new place. Last week we got a new measurement and of freaking course that dang thing got thinner. I feel sorry for the Ultrasound Tech because I started bawling. Snot and tears flying everywhere, bawling. I’m a planner and my plans included a normal pregnancy. When they started throwing out terms like pre-term labor, bed rest and modified best I could not deal with that. I was worried about our baby, my health, my job and my husband.
My OB scheduled yet ANOTHER appointment (this thursday) where we’ll find out if the “light activity” lifestyle he put me on worked. Between worrying about my cervix…a body part I clearly underestimated pre-pregnancy…and moving, this has been the most stressful week of our lives. I have a list of projects I want to get started on as soon as we get the all-clear on Thursday (i’m being hopeful). Mike and I found some really pretty fabric for the crib skirt so that is the first item on my agenda. I can’t wait to share!
