Stable For Now
We just got back from our appt with Dr. S and as of right now we are stable. My cervix is still funneling but it is long and closed. Still measuring over 3 cm. I will continue to take the headache pills (I call them that because they make my head throb like crazy) as needed to keep contractions at bay and I will see Dr. S twice a week for the next two weeks at least. Once we hit 24 weeks Sawyer has a 50% chance of survival, and an 80% at 26 weeks. Knowing we are only a couple of weeks away from that, we want to do everything we can to keep him where he needs to be for now. After 24 weeks we may cut down to once a week check ups. I am not on strict bed rest but have been told to take it easy. No exercise, no lifting, basically I can go to work and sit at my desk and do the bare minimum at home. Poor Skeet!! We will just play it by ear. I can't believe how quickly things can change! I go from thinking we are in the clear to this in less than 24 hours!! I am staying positive though. I will do whatever it takes to keep Sawyer safe until he is ready to meet us face to face. I appreciate all the concern and prayers. It means so much to us that so many out there love Sawyer so much!! Thank you!!
