Not Good

My peri appointment was rather disappointing and scary. He called my cervix shortened and recommended bedrest. My length now is 2.6 and my funneling has increased. He said at 24 weeks they will likely send me to the hospital for Celestone injections but will not put me on hospital bedrest until I get to 1.0.

He said his goal for this baby is 30 weeks. I'm so sad. I never wanted to see the inside of that NICU again.

My next appointment is in two weeks. This is going to be a long two weeks.

My heart and prayers are with you. Since they know more this time, maybe things will be better than last. At least you know what to expect. You are such a strong woman and have a beautiful spirit. Don't belittle yourself. This not something you chose for this baby or for Little Margaret. It is simply life.

Much Love to all of you,

Aunt Vicki

I am so sorry! I am hoping and praying this baby continues to bake in spite of what the odds look like!

I'm praying for you right now Lisa. I know this is not the news you wanted to get today at the peri. Keep thinking positive thoughts and let DH wait on you.

Oh Lisa- I'm sorry to hear. Please take the BR to heart. My OB didn't think I'd make it past 23-24w but I was fastidious about the bedrest and made it a few weeks longer! I hope you'll do it too!

You're in my prayers. I will come visit and try to offer some "distractions"
I'll call you tomorrow.
Love you,
