Iffy Test Result

I went to the OB today and had another fetal fibronectin test performed. This time it was positive. Although I understand that a negative result is much more reliable as a way to rule out preterm labor, I am really nervous about my result. The doc said with my risk factors, history, and the fact that I am symptomatic the positive result is a bit more valuable for its predictive value. So, delivery within 14 days? I pray not.

I think part of the reason I'm so nervous is that I could tell that the doctor was very concerned.... the same doctor that never has been worried about anything. He told me to go lay down and stressed that I should call him if anything at all comes up.

My next MFM appointment is next Monday so I'll know how my cervix is looking then. The OB said I am a fingertip dilated now... I'll update when I get my new measurements. I'm actually wondering if I will be admitted again... I hope not. I've already cooked Thanksgiving dinner. (read: called in an order)
